    NHL roundup: Jackob Silfverberg lifts the Senators

    Jakob Silfverberg scored twice to lead the Senators to a 4-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday in Ottawa.

    Guillaume Latendresse and Kyle Turris added goals for the Senators, who got 25 saves from Robin Lehner.

    Zach Bogosian scored the lone goal for the Jets. Ondrej Pavelec made 38 saves, but Winnipeg’s three-game winning streak was snapped.


    Trailing, 2-0, heading into the third, the Jets finally beat Lehner at 3:26 as Bogosian’s shot from just inside the blue line made it through traffic and just under the crossbar.

    Evander Kane had a great chance to tie the game midway through the period on a 2-on-1 break, but was robbed by Lehner, who made a great pad save.

    The Senators made it 3-1 minutes later with a power-play goal by Turris, and 1:15 after that, Silfverberg scored his second of the game to give Ottawa its three-goal edge.

    Senators defenseman Sergei Gonchar extended his point streak to seven games with a pair of assists.

    Captials 5, Sabres 3 — Troy Brouwer had a goal and an assist in the second period and Jason Chimera scored his first regular-season goal in nearly a year as host Washington broke out of an offensive slump in which it had scored only seven times in five games — losing four — with a win over Buffalo.


    Alex Ovechkin got the Capitals going with his 350th NHL goal, scored only 19 seconds in, and Marcus Johansson and Matthieu Perrault also had a goal and an assist each as Washington beat Buffalo at home for the seventh time in eight games.

    Cody Hodgson scored twice for the Sabres, who have lost five straight road games and have won just once in seven games overall.

    Brian Flynn also scored for Buffalo, which will play four of its next five on the road.

    Oilers 3, Predators 2 — Jordan Eberle had a goal and assist to lift host Edmonton over Nashville. Magnus Paajarvi and Lennart Petrell also scored for the Oilers, who have won three of four.

    Shea Weber and Roman Josi had goals for the Predators, who have lost the first three games of a four-game trip.


    The Oilers scored first in the second period and then added two goals in the third to win.
