WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Pierre-Luc Dubois scored twice to lead the Winnipeg Jets to a 4-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Monday night.
Adam Lowry and Kyle Connor also scored for the Jets (23-13-3), who had dropped three of four. Andrew Copp and Nikolaj Ehlers each had two assists, and Connor Hellebuyck made 20 saves.
Ottawa lost for the third time in four games. Ryan Dzingel had a goal and an assist for the Senators (13-22-4), and Josh Norris scored a power-play goal in the third period. Anton Forsberg made 42 saves.
Ottawa pulled within one on Connor Brown’s 10th goal with 3:09 left, but Winnipeg held on. Brown has scored in four straight games.
“I was all right with our game straight through. And I didn’t feel that we were under siege,” Maurice said. “They’re going to push, pull their goalie, those types of things. I really liked our offensive game, the way we tried to shoot the puck.”
