Senators beat Jets

– Rookie Andrew Hammond made 35 saves, and Kyle Turris had a goal and assist as the Ottawa Senators beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 on Wednesday night.

Bobby Ryan and Erik Condra also scored for Ottawa, which came off a 3-2 shootout loss on Tuesday at Minnesota.

The Senators are 6-0-1 in their past seven games.

Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien left the game in the second period and didn't return because of an upper-body injury. He appeared to favor his right arm.

The Jets hold the top wild-card spot in the Western Conference by one point over the Wild, but Minnesota has two games in hand.
