VANCOUVER - They closed the roof and then the Senators put a cap on a crucial victory to start their Western swing.

The Senators were lousy guests at the Heritage Classic after they skated into BC Place and scored a 4-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks in front of 54,194 Sunday afternoon.

Cody Ceci scored the winner while Colin Greening Erik Karlsson and Clarke MacArthur also chipped in as Craig Anderson made 28 stops to give the Senators their first win here since March 13, 2004.

Anderson had to come up huge in the third as the Canucks pressed hard to tie it up with Ottawa clinging to a one-goal lead. Only Zack Kassian and Jason Garrison scored for the Canucks.

Greening put it away into an empty net.
