A week ago it was unthinkable that the Ottawa Senators could get back into contention in the crowded Eastern Conference playoff race.
OTTAWA (AP) — Mika Zibanejad had a goal and an assist Thursday and Clarke MacArthur scored the winning goal midway through the third period and the Ottawa Senators beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 on Thursday.
Joel Ward scored the lone goal for the Capitals (20-15-5), who have lost back-to-back games.
Sergei Gonchar scored on the power play with 2:30 left in regulation as the Ottawa Senators battled back from a sluggish start to defeat the Washington Capitals 3-2 on Tuesday.
The Ottawa Senators sent first-round draft pick Mika Zibanejad back to Swedish club team Djurgardens on Wednesday rather than burn the first year of his entry-level contract.
Minnesota is home to a multitude of Scandinavian descendants, particularly Sweden.
"I think being a part of the team with the Swedes is helping a lot," Zibanejad said. "I think I can take that as an advantage, for sure."
"I guess I get a bigger role back home and I feel comfortable with the game and I feel comfortable with everything outside the ice and just focusing on improving my game and improving all those small details that I have to do to make the team next year," he said.
