MONTREAL (AP) Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller scored shootout goals, and the Montreal Canadiens won their fourth straight by beating the Ottawa Senators 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Eller also scored in the first period and Brendan Gallagher and P.K. Subban added power-play goals in the second for Montreal (18-5-4), which played loosely in its first home game after a five-game trip. Carey Price made 29 saves.

Mika Zibanejad and Daniel Alfredsson had power-play goals for Ottawa (13-8-6), and Patrick Wiercioch also scored for the Senators, who are 1-2-4 in their last seven.

Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner was sharp in the third period when Montreal had three power plays and stretched its shots advantage to 45-32.

Both teams earned two wins in the four-game season series.
