Josh Norris and Tim Stutzle had a goal and two assists each as the visiting Ottawa Senators beat the St. Louis Blues 4-1 on Tuesday to snap a five-game losing streak.

Brady Tkachuk, who grew up in St. Louis watching his father Keith play for the Blues, and Alex Formenton also scored for the Senators. Colin White notched two assists and Anton Forsberg made 22 saves to earn the victory.

David Perron scored and Jordan Binnington stopped 24 shots for the Blues, who are winless in their last four games (0-3-1).

The Blues also lost winger Pavel Buchnevich, who was knocked out of the game by a high hit from Austin Watson late in the third period.

The Senators dictated play from the start. Tkachuk rang a shot off the post five minutes into the game, then Stutzle hit a post 2 1/2 minutes later.

Ottawa took a 1-0 lead on a power play. Three Senators pursued the puck as it bounced crazily toward the crease, and Stutzle knocked it into the net at the 11:35 mark of the first period.

Just over three minutes later, Perron tied the game. Ryan O'Reilly prevented an Ottawa clearing attempt and passed to Perron, who backhanded the puck through Forsberg.

Ottawa jumped in front again 1:24 into the second period with another power-play goal. Stutzle moved in from the blue line and passed to Norris, who pounded a one-time shot from the right face-off dot.

Tkachuk scored at 7:48 of the third, pushing the Senators' lead to 3-1. He broke up a St. Louis outlet pass, then took a pass from Norris to beat Binnington between his pads.

Formenton's empty-net goal with 2:47 left iced the game.
