OTTAWA - On St. Patrick’s Day, the Senators served up a pot of goals for their faithful.

The Sens ended their 11-game streak of one-goal margins in convincing fashion on the strength of Jakob Silfverberg’s two-goal effort with a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday at Scotiabank Place in front of 19,227.

Captain Daniel Alfredsson and defenceman Sergei Gonchar also had two-point nights as the Senators closed out the weekend with back-to-back victories. Kyle Turris and Guillaume Latendresse also scored for the home team.

Goaltender Robin Lehner, making only his second start of the season at home, was up to the task, while Ondrej Pavelec was shelled in the Winnipeg net with Silfverberg and Turris putting this one way in the third.

This wasn’t an easy victory, especially with the Senators clinging to a one-goal lead midway though the second. Lehner made a huge stop on Patrick Kane with 10 minutes left in the third and the Jets pressing for the tie.
