Montreal, QC (Sports Network) - Jakob Silfverberg and Marc Methot scored in a 1:53 span early in the third period and Craig Anderson stopped a season-high 48 shots as the Ottawa Senators took a 4-2 decision over the Montreal Canadiens in Game 1 of this Eastern Conference quarterfinal from Bell Centre.

Erik Karlsson and Guillaume Latendresse also lit the lamp, while Mika Zibanejad added a pair of assists for the Senators, who face their Canadian rivals in the postseason for the first time since 1927.

Rene Bourque and Brendan Gallagher scored 59 seconds apart in the second period for the Canadiens, who lost the game and forward Lars Eller to an upper-body injury late in the second period on a hard hit from Sens defenseman Eric Gryba.

Carey Price surrendered all four goals on 31 shots in the loss, but Montreal has a chance to square the series in Game 2 on home ice Friday.
