 It took a trip to the Motor City to stop the Senators’ skid.

The Senators got just what the doctor ordered to solve their woes and halted a three-game losing streak Saturday night with a 4-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings with timely goals along with a solid 34 stops from backup Robin Lehner.

Winger Clarke MacArthur scored twice while Bobby Ryan notched the winner in the third and Chris Neil also beat Jimmy Howard in a game that featured four 5-on-3 power plays — including three for the Wings.

Lehner, making only his second career start against Detroit and his first here, was excellent but he wasn’t impressed with the Wings antics by falling over the place to draw penalties.

“After the first 10 minutes, when we didn’t play very well, I thought the guys really picked it up,” said Lehner. “We have to be a little bit more disciplined. We had a few too many penalties, some of them were soft.
