Senators Lose 1-0 to Jets

In what was probably their worst performance of the year, the Ottawa Senators lost their Hockey Day in Canada matchup against the Winnipeg Jets 1-0 on Saturday afternoon.  While these 2 clubs have had some tight, defensive matchups in the past, this one was filled with poor execution and offensive/defensive miscues.  It was a game short on flow, skill or effort.

Alex Ponikarovsky scored the only goal of the game in the first period when he deflected Kyle Wellwood’s shot over the shoulder of Ben Bishop, who was getting his first start since his loss in Tampa Bay.  The 6’5 goaltender had been standing on his head for the majority of the game, even making some stops on his teammates, but was saddled with the loss despite allowing 1 goal.

Al Montoya made 33 saves, recording his 1st shutout of the season and 3rd of his career.  Peter Regin sustained a chest injury in the first period and did not return.  The Senators next game is Tuesday against the Buffalo Sabres.
