WINNIPEG — Ales Hemsky admitted he was feeling down after being traded to Ottawa from Edmonton last Wednesday. Andrew Robertson Jersey . But his mood picked up after he had three assists in the struggling Senators 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday afternoon. “Its weird,” said Hemsky, whos in his 11th NHL season. “You spend your whole career in one place and then you kind of realize youve come to the end. Its sad because I had a lot of great people there, even the locker-room was great and everybody treated me really well. “I was sad, but in the end I was excited to come here and play those type of games and battle for the playoffs.” It was Hemskys second game and first points with Ottawa since he was traded and slotted on to the Senators top line. Milan Michalek scored the games first goal on the power play with an assist from Hemsky and centre Jason Spezza, who had three assists. “Hes an extremely offensively talented player,” Spezza said of Hemsky. “I seem like I can read off him fairly easily. Ive watched him play a lot. Hes really good with the puck, hes got that short stick, protects it really well and is a good passer.” Defencemen Jared Cowen and Eric Gryba and centres Kyle Turris and Mike Hoffman also scored for Ottawa (28-25-11), which had lost two straight and four of its past five games heading into the match. Craig Anderson stopped 46 shots for the Senators. Spezza said the players arent satisfied splitting their four-game road trip with a win over Vancouver, losses to Edmonton and Calgary and then the victory in Winnipeg. “Its nice to get the win tonight and get two points and get moving in the right direction again, but no, were not happy with .500 out of this trip,” Spezza said. “Were fighting for the playoffs. We needed more points than that.” Ottawa was six points out of a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference before the game. Turriss goal was his 21st of season, while it was Hoffmans first career goal and assist. Michalek picked up two assists. Jets centre Bryan Little earned his 20th goal of the season. Tobias Enstrom and Dustin Byfuglien also scored for Winnipeg (30-28-7). Ondrej Pavelec started in goal for the Jets, but was replaced in the second period by Al Montoya after giving up five goals on 20 shots. Montoya stopped all 12 shots he faced. The Jets have lost three straight, including overtime against the New York Islanders and in regulation versus Los Angeles. Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice wasnt hanging the loss on Pavelec. “I know he didnt have a chance on the first three (goals),” Maurice said. “The fourth is a play thats going behind the net and its a laser. If he gets that one, its as much luck as it is positioning on that one. “Ive got no problem with him. I didnt take him out to do anything other than calm the bench. He had seen enough.” Winnipeg went into the game three points back of Dallas for the final wild-card playoff spot in the Western Conference and one point behind Phoenix, which visits Washington Saturday night. The Senators led 2-1 after the first period and 5-2 following the second. Each team scored a pair of power-play goals. “Anytime youre a team thats going through what were going through at this point, when you have the lead, no lead is safe until the game is over,” Ottawa head coach Paul MacLean said. “I think that was the case with us tonight. I thought they came with a push a but at the end of the day I thought our goaltender held the fort for us really well.” Michalek scored his 11th goal of the season at 9:54 of the opening period with a deflection off a Jets defender just 20 seconds after defenceman Zach Bogosian went to the penalty box for holding. The goal was reviewed to see if the puck had fully crossed the line behind Pavelec. Little got his stick on a rebound and sent a backhand shot over a stretched-out Anderson at 16:59 with Senators winger Chris Neil off for interference. But the tie was short-lived as Cowens goal came 38 seconds later off a shot from the point. Winnipeg had a two-man advantage for 70 seconds in the period, but couldnt capitalize. Gryba scored 2:03 into the second period during a play that had Jets defenceman Mark Stuart sliding into Pavelec, sending him rolling at the side of the net. Winnipeg regrouped and Evander Kane won a faceoff and sent it back to Enstrom, who blasted a shot past Anderson at 4:15 while Ottawas Cowen was off for slashing. Turris and then Hoffman scored to make it 5-2 and Pavelec went to the bench. Byfuglien scored unassisted with a slapshot 2:13 into the third period for his 14th goal of the season. He said the team has got move on from the loss. “Couple of tough bounces,” Byfuglien said. “Pavs been doing everything to keep us in every game.” Ottawa was 2 for 4 on the power play and the Jets were 2 for 7. Winnipeg travels to Colorado for a game Monday and then hosts Vancouver on Wednesday. The Senators host Nashville on Monday. Notes: The Jets are now 11-5-2 since head coach Paul Maurice took over on Jan. 12 … Jason Spezza now has 11 points (2G, 9A) over the last eight games. Roberto Firmino Jersey . Abduraimova had not won a tour-level match since 2009 but was a wild-card entry in Tashkent and broke her opponent twice in each set to reach the second round. Second-seeded Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania advanced easily by beating Kateryna Kozlova of Ukraine 6-3, 6-1, while No. Ben Woodburn Jersey . — John Fox will coach the Denver Broncos from the sideline and not the booth upon his return Sunday five weeks after heart surgery.The Los Angeles Kings pulled the trigger to get a veteran scoring winger, one that is a few years away from his best production. Numbers Game breaks down the Kings deal for Marian Gaborik. The Kings Get: RW Marian Gaborik. Gaborik, 32, has been one of the premier goal-scorers in the league, but is also a couple years removed from real top level production. From 2001-2002 through 2011-2012, he scored 306 goals in 651 games, his 0.47 goals per game ranked fourth among players that played in at least 500 games over that span. In the past two seasons, however, Gaborik has a meagre 18 goals and 41 points in 69 games, not near his previous level of production and its not just by some run of bad luck. Gaborik is averaging 2.14 shots on goal per game this season, easily the lowest mark of his career, and his 16:25 time on ice per game is his lowest since his rookie season of 2000-2001. Hes also missed time with a broken collarbone, returning to the lineup after the Olympics. Going to Los Angeles, Gaborik has an opportunity to add a new dimension to the Kings, a grinding team that doesnt have anyone that can match Gaboriks speed. If he can recapture some of his goal-scoring touch, playing for a dominant possession team, then Gaborik might rehabilitate some of his rep as a scorer while, at the same time, providing a much-needed offensive boost for a team that ranks 27th with 2.32 goals per game this season. If Gaborik moves into a top line role with the Kings, that should mean that a winger that has been playing in the top six — one of Tyler Toffoli, Dustin Brown, Justin Williams — will get bumped into a third-line role and that is a positive in terms of the Kings overall forward depth. Gaborik is in the final year of a deal that pays him $7.5-millionn per season, but half of his salary was retained by the New York Rangers, in order to facilitate his trade to Columbus, so hes not particularly cost prohibitive three quarters of the way through the season. Mohamed Salah Liverpool Jersey. The Blue Jackets Get: RW Matt Frattin, a second-round (Torontos 2014 or 2015 pick) and a conditional third-round pick in 2014 or 2015. Frattin is a 26-year-old winger who had shown some offensive ability with Toronto (scoring 15 goals and 28 points in 82 games) before this current season in Los Angeles, during which hes scored two goals and six points in 40 games. While Frattins lack of production can be tied to a low on-ice shooting percentage (4.59%), his relative possession stats were not good despite getting easy minutes — not facing tough competition and starting 58.2% of his shifts in the offensive zone. At this point, Frattin is basically a fringe NHL winger and hell have to compete for playing time with the likes of Corey Tropp and Blake Comeau. Frattin, at an $875,000 cap hit through the end of the season, will be a restricted free agent in the summer. The second and third-round picks, combined, present about a 40% chance of yielding an NHL player, so its entirely possible that the Blue Jackets could go into next season with little to show in return for Gaborik, but thats a reflection of the decline in Gaboriks productivity. If he was the same as the three-time 40-goal scorer that he has been in the past, then the Blue Jackets a) would have been more inclined to keep him or b) would have been able to extract a more substantial price in return.
