OTTAWA (CP) - Jaromir Jagr and Martin Straka each had a goal and an assist Saturday and Henrik Lundqvist made 34 saves to lead the New York Rangers to a rare win over the Ottawa Senators 3-1.

Straka scored during a first-period power play and Jagr struck in the second period as the Rangers won for only the third time in 13 games against the Senators since the 2002-03 season.

Brendan Shanahan scored his 22nd goal of the season into an empty net and Lundqvist did the rest for New York (15-10-4), which won for the second straight game after dropping four in a row.

Jason Spezza, with a power-play marker, had the lone goal for Ottawa (15-14-1).

After winning four straight games and eight of nine, the Senators have now lost back-to-back contests.

Ray Emery stopped 26 shots for Ottawa, which slipped to 6-7-0 at home before a sold-out Scotiabank Place crowd of 19,192. New York's last victory here came March 21, 2002.

The Rangers finished 1-for-4 on the power play.

The Senators, playing without captain Daniel Alfredsson (hip) and defenceman Wade Redden (chest) because of injuries, also went 1-for-4 with the man advantage.

The Rangers opened the scoring late in the first period while the Senators were playing two men down after consecutive penalties to Jason Spezza and Antoine Vermette.
