RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Martin Gerber stopped 29 shots in his return to Raleigh and the Ottawa Senators beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 Tuesday night.

Mike Fisher had a goal and an assist, and Christoph Schubert, Patrick Eaves and Chris Neal also scored for the Senators, who have won five of six.

Gerber, in his only season with Carolina, set the franchise record with 38 victories in 2005-06 before he was supplanted in the playoffs by Cam Ward, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy and led Carolina to its first Stanley Cup.

Gerber, who signed a three-year, US$11.1 million deal with Ottawa in the offseason, made his first appearance at the RBC Center a success by stopping the final 28 shots he faced.

Andrew Ladd scored for the Hurricanes, who have lost three of four.

John Grahame, making his third straight start and first with Carolina at the RBC Center, stopped 32 shots but was under siege throughout.

Schubert put Ottawa up 2-1 4 minutes into the second period when he took Jason Spezza's drop pass just inside the blue line and beat Grahame with a slap shot.

Then, midway through the period, the Senators turned a Carolina miscue into a 3-1 lead. Fisher scored on a 2-on-2 break which started with Peter Schaefer's takeaway from Bret Hedican in the neutral zone.
