Recap: Winnipeg vs. Ottawa

Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) - Andrew Hammond turned aside 35 shots to lead the Ottawa Senators in a 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday.

Kyle Turris had a goal and an assist while Bobby Ryan and Erik Condra also scored for the Senators, who have won six of their last seven.

"It's just hard work from everyone on the team, and obviously we have that special feeling now, and I feel like it's carrying over where it doesn't matter the team we're playing, we feel like we hang in there and play and be successful," said Hammond.

Michael Frolik scored the only goal of the game for the Jets, who have dropped four of their last six.

Michael Hutchinson allowed three goals on 17 shots and was replaced with just over eight minutes to play in the second by Ondrej Pavelec, who stopped all three shots he faced.

"Hammond played really well, but we had a couple opportunities to put it in and couldn't," said Winnipeg forward Andrew Ladd. "It was one of those nights. We'll put this one behind us and move forward into this next stretch of games that are really important."

Ottawa grabbed a 1-0 lead 4:59 in as Turris raced down the left wing and from the circle snapped a shot in off the right post for his 16th of the season.

The second goal came at 9:07 of the second period as Mika Zibanejad whipped a pass from the right corner to the slot, where Ryan one-timed it home for a power-play goal and a 2-0 lead.

Condra gave the team a 3-0 lead just under three minutes later when Mark Stone skated the puck behind the net and from the right side was able to get it out to the circle where Condra one-timed it home.

Winnipeg finally got on the board 5:46 into the third when Tyler Myers fired a pass from the left wing that Lee Stempniak tipped and Frolik finished off from the right side.

Winnipeg pulled Pavelec with 2 1/2 minutes to play, but was unable to get any closer.
