Kyle Turris had a goal and an assist, Robin Lehner made 27 saves for his second career shutout and the Ottawa Senators beat the Minnesota Wild 3-0 on Tuesday night.
    
Clarke MacArthur and Erik Condra also scored for the Senators, who head home after earning seven of a possible eight points on their four-game road trip.
    
Despite controlling play and outshooting the Wild 15-3 in the first period, Ottawa led only 1-0 on MacArthur's 16th of the season.
    
With the Wild hanging around thanks to another strong effort from goalie Darcy Kuemper (29 saves), Condra won a race with Marco Scandella to a puck in front of the net and made it 2-0 at 5:55 of the third.
    
Turris scored on the power play at 17:38 of the third to put the game away.

Minnesota (25-19-5) is 16-7-2 at home this season. If the season ended today, the Wild would make the Western Conference Playoffs as the eighth and final seed.

The Wild play at Edmonton, the worst team in the Western Conference at 15-29-5, on Thursday night.
