Josh Norris, Chris Tierney and Alex Galchenyuk scored for Ottawa.
It’s the first of three games in five days between the two clubs. They’ll square off again in Ottawa on Thursday night before returning to Winnipeg on Saturday.
Winnipeg was without forward Patrik Laine (upper-body injury) for a second straight game. He was listed as day to day as the Jets opened a stretch with five games in seven nights.
Rookie forward Tim Stutzel, who’s dealing with a nagging minor injury, didn’t play for Ottawa. The third overall selection in the 2020 NHL draft, who has a goal through two games with the Senators, is also considered day to day.
