Jets blank Senators 1-0 as live road 'dogs

OTTAWA (AP) - Al Montoya made 33 saves, and Alex Ponikarovsky scored the only goal in the Winnipeg Jets' 1-0 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Ponikarovsky broke the scoreless deadlock 5:57 into the third period. The Senators had no answer against Montoya, who replaced an ailing Ondrej Pavelec (flu) and posted his first shutout of the season and third of his NHL career.

Kyle Wellwood intercepted a clearing attempt and took a shot from inside the blue line that Ponikarovsky deflected in off Bishop's shoulder and both posts.

The Jets (5-5-1) won for the second time in six games and snapped a three-game road skid.

Ottawa backup Ben Bishop made his second start of the season and was solid in stopping 36 shots. The Senators (6-4-2) have scored just seven goals in past five games, including four in a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.

The Senators have lost a pair of 1-0 decisions in that span. Ottawa has allowed only 15 goals in eight games.

NOTES: The Jets entered with the most points from defensemen this season with 34. St. Louis began the day in second place with 31, four more than Ottawa. ... Senators forwards Eric Condra and Colin Greening have both gone five games without a point. ... Jim O'Brien and Andres Benoit were scratched by the Senators. Anthony Peluso and Dustin Byfuglien sat out for the Jets.
