During their streak of six games with at least a point, the Winnipeg Jets got timely scoring and killed penalties with authority.
Both of those trends faded away as the streak came to a crashing halt Sunday in Ottawa.
The Senators scored two power-play goals, ending the Jets run of 29 straight successful kills, and the Jets were unable to generate any goals of their own with the man-advantage in a 4-1 loss.
But Winnipeg had plenty of chances to tie or even win the game after Zach Bogosian scored in the third period to make it 2-1. Evander Kane had the puck roll off his stick and shot wide on a shorthanded breakaway and then he was robbed by Sens’ goalie Robin Lehner on a two-on-one feed from Blake Wheeler.
Earlier in the game Bryan Little and James Wright fired wide from prime shooting position.
