The last time these clubs met, the Winnipeg Jets ended the Ottawa Senators' six-game home points streak. The Southeast Division-leading Jets can do that again. Winnipeg will also go for its first seven-game points streak in six seasons on Sunday when it faces a Senators club that could tie a league record for consecutive one-goal games. After the visiting Senators (14-8-6) spoiled their season opener with a 4-1 victory on Jan. 19, the Jets (15-11-2) won 1-0 on Feb. 9 - their second consecutive shutout in Ottawa - behind backup Al Montoya's 33 saves and a goal from Alexei Ponikarovsky. That is the Senators' only regulation home loss. They are 9-1-3 at Scotiabank Place. Winnipeg arrives on a season-best 5-0-1 points streak after defenseman Zach Bogosian scored in the 10th round of the shootout in Saturday's 5-4 victory over Toronto. The victory - the team's season high-tying third straight - moved Winnipeg one point ahead of Carolina for first place in the di...

The Ottawa Senators can't spell each other's last names

Hockey is a sport loaded with names that are difficult to pronounce and almost impossible to spell.

Kyle Turris scores sick game-winner on terrible angle snipe

This shot was very Steve Stamkos-esque.  On a four-on-three powerplay late in overtime, the Ottawa Senators wanted to get the extra point badly against their division opponent the Buffalo Sabres.  Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson set up Kyle Turris with a nice pass and Turris absolutely buried it.  He had a terrible angle, positioning himself at the bottom of the circle, but...

Ottawa Senators interested in Corey Perry

Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun thinks the Ottawa Senators should land big-ticket free-agent Corey Perry this summer.  " If Melnyk wants a championship as much as he lets on, he must still toss and turn with nightmares of how Perry played such a large role in keeping him from one that spring. If he wants to sip from the Cup as he says, he must be prepared to offer Perry a deal...

Evander Kane turns down Korbinian Holzer’s fight offer, Zach Bogosian accepts

This was a pretty interesting series of events.  Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Korbinian Holzer and Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane were pushing and shoving in the corner and it looked like that they might fight.  Kane knew Holzer was bigger than him and declined Holzer’s attempt to fight.  Holzer had already thrown his gloves off and started to awkwardly pick his equipment...

Colton Orr destroys Chris Thorburn in heavyweight fight

After Colton Orr (6’3″ 222 lbs) and Chris Thorburn (6’3″ 210 lbs) mixed it up during the Toronto Maple Leafs-Winnipeg Jets game on March 12th, they went for round 2 on Saturday night.  Unfortunately for Thorburn, like round 1, Colton Orr tuned him up.  The best punch was thrown at about the 36 second mark by Orr.  He worked his arm inside and Thorburn could do nothing...

Senators-Sabres Preview

While the Ottawa Senators continue to play with a depleted roster, the Buffalo Sabres might get a handful of players back on the ice Saturday.
