Brown scores again in Senators win against Jets


OTTAWA — Connor Brown extended his goal streak to eight games, and the Ottawa Senators defeated the Winnipeg Jets 4-2 at Canadian Tire Centre on Monday.

Brown’s goal streak is the longest in Ottawa history and tied for the 11th longest in the NHL since the 1990-91 season.

Brady Tkachuk had two goals, Josh Norris and Thomas Chabot each had two assists, and Anton Forsberg made 24 saves for the Senators (14-25-4), who ended a four-game losing streak. 

Kyle Connor and Nikolaj Ehlers scored, and Connor Hellebuyck made 20 saves for the Jets (25-14-3), who had won three straight.

Connor gave Winnipeg a 1-0 lead at 5:00 of the first period with a one-timer off a pass from Josh Morrissey on the power play. Ehlers then scored with a wrist shot under Forsberg’s glove on a rush to make it 2-0 at 8:25.

Tkachuk cut it to 2-1 at 11:03 when Norris’ wrist shot from the right face-off dot deflected in off his foot and on the power play. 

Brown’s wrist shot from the top of the slot hit off Hellebuyck’s glove and fluttered into the net to tie it 2-2 at 18:38 of the first.

Evgenii Dadonov gave Ottawa a 3-2 lead at 10:10 of the third period. Hellebuyck misplayed a dump-in by Chabot in front of his crease, and Dadonov picked up the loose puck and scored into an open net with his backhand.

Tkachuk scored on a breakaway with a snap shot over Hellebuyck’s glove at 16:12 for the 4-2 final.

Defenseman Victor Mete played 9:43 in his Senators debut. Ottawa claimed him off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens on Monday.
