OTTAWA, Ontario — Chris Wideman got his first two goals in nearly a year, Craig Anderson made 36 saves and the Ottawa Senators beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-1 on Saturday.

Wideman tore a hamstring last November and missed the rest of the season. The 28-year-old had been without a point in his first four games this season.

Chris Tierney, Mark Stone and Colin White also scored for the Senators, and Matt Duchene, Brady Tkachuk and Thomas Chabot each had two assists.

Trevor Lewis scored for the Kings, who will wrap up their four-game trip Monday night in Toronto.

Los Angeles’ Jack Campbell made his fourth consecutive start and allowed four goals on 11 shots before being replaced by Peter Budaj. Budaj allowed one goal on 11 shots.

Tierney opened the scoring just over six minutes in by tipping Dylan DeMelo’s shot past Campbell. Wideman pushed in a rebound and Stone added a power-play goal later in the period for a 3-0 lead.

White made it 4-0 in the second with a wrist shot that ended Campbell’s afternoon. Lewis got the Kings on the board late in the period before Wideman tacked on his second goal midway through the third during a delayed penalty call.

NOTES: This was the Kings’ lone visit to Ottawa this season and marked the return of Dion Phaneuf, who was traded to Los Angeles last February after spending parts of three seasons with the Senators. Phaneuf had 13 goals and 41 assists over 154 games with Ottawa. … With Cody Ceci on injury reserve, Ben Harpur made his regular-season debut and led all Ottawa defensemen in ice time. … The Senators were without Ceci (upper body), Ryan Dzingel (lower body) and Alex Formenton (concussion). Jonathan Quick (lower body), Dustin Brown (broken finger), Jonny Brodzinski (shoulder) and Gabriel Vilardi (back) were out for the Kings.
