    OTTAWA — The sagging Ottawa Senators suffered another loss and another big injury on Friday night. Already without No. 1 goalie Craig Anderson (concussion) Henrik Lundqvist Jersey Kids , the Senators watched second-year defenseman Thomas Chabot head to the dressing room in the second period of their 6-3 road defeat at the hands of the New York Islanders. Chabot, who has 38 points in 38 games, appeared to be favoring his shoulder after a questionable hit from winger Matt Martin. Coach Guy Boucher said Chabot won’t play when the Senators (15-19-4) try to stop a three-game losing streak in a home game against the Washington Capitals at Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday.Article continues below ...The Senators, who are now just a point from the NHL basement, showed their frustrations with four fights late in the third period, including a bout between defenseman Mark Borowiecki and Martin.“It’s a message to us, we have to send messages to ourselves in here,” Borowiecki told the Ottawa Sun of the scrap. “You’ve got to man up sometimes and give the you-know-what’s a squeeze, and you’ve got to make sure we’re there for each other and for ourselves and show a little bit of pride. It’s not acceptable. We’re not happy about it, but we’re not going to roll over and let stuff like that happen.”Journeyman Senators goalie Mike McKenna made 33 saves in Friday’s loss and could get thrown right back into action against the Capitals. Boucher’s other option is to give rookie Marcus Hogberg his first NHL start.McKenna gave up four goals on 33 shots when the Senators hosted the Capitals last Saturday and lost 4-0.Meanwhile, the Capitals (23-10-3) are on a roll. They returned from the Christmas break to defeat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 on Thursday. It was their third consecutive victory and eighth in their last nine games. Washington has gone through some injury problems of its own. Especially along the blue line. Matt Niskanen, a top four defenseman, went hard into the boards on Thursday and he is expected to miss the meeting with the Senators. So is veteran blue liner Brooks Orpik, who has missed the last 26 games with a knee injury. Also out indefinitely after surgery on his thigh is defenseman Christian Djoos.In their place Jimmy Vesey Jersey , the Capitals have relied on 21-year-old Jonas Siegenthaler, who has played 11 NHL games; 24-year-old rookie Tyler Lewington, who made his debut last week, and Madison Bowey, a 23-year-old in his second season who will likely assume Niskanen’s minutes.“We’ve been able to see our young players and how they’re developing,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden told the Washington Post. “And that’s what it’s all about. You can have them play in the American (Hockey) League and you can have them watch video and practice and all those types of things, but until they get into NHL game action, there’s nothing that compares to it.“We were able to see Lewington do that. I thought he handled himself real nicely. And Siegenthaler continues to do real well, and Bowey continues to make strides also.” NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Winnipeg Jets only got a few hours to celebrate the biggest victory in franchise history.The Jets finished off the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Nashville Predators 5-1 in Game 7 of their second-round series Thursday night, then quickly headed home to prepare for the opener of their first ever Western Conference final Saturday night.”It’s too bad one of us had to be knocked off here,” Jets captain Blake Wheeler said. ”But night’s like tonight, you try to really soak it in and enjoy it. And then, wake up and get ready for a big game on Saturday.”The Jets will be hosting the upstart Vegas Golden Knights in a conference final nobody predicted.Upstart Winnipeg was swept in its only previous playoff appearance since leaving Atlanta for Canada in 2011. The Golden Knights Kevin Hayes Jersey , meanwhile, are dragging their debut season deep into the NHL calendar.”We know what they bring, we know that they’re good, that they maybe surprised a few teams, but not really,” Jets center Paul Stastny said. ”They had 109 points. In a sense they play like us, they have a lot of depth, and they can roll four lines, and they have good, puck-moving D. So we’re going to have our hands full for sure.”Stastny had one of two Winnipeg goals 2:06 apart in the first period to chase Vezina Trophy finalist Pekka Rinne for the third and final time in their series. Stastny finished with two goals and an assist, and Mark Scheifele finished with two goals, giving him a postseason record seven road goals in a single series .Tyler Myers also scored. Wheeler and rookie Kyle Connor each added two assists, and Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck, who improved to 4-0 coming off a loss this postseason Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey , made 36 saves to outduel Rinne in the showdown between Vezina Trophy finalists.”A year in a goalie’s life makes such a big difference,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said of his 24-year-old goalie. ”In the third period, I think had one bobbled puck that got away from him, but everything else after that he was knocking it to the corner, he was clearing the front. He looked calm.”This was the first Game 7 for the Winnipeg/Atlanta franchise, and the Jets dominated the Predators to win in Nashville for the third time in the series. They outskated the Predators and kept the puck on their sticks much of the game, even as Nashville outshot them 21-7 in the third period.By the time Scheifele scored his record-setting goal into an empty net with 2:33 left, the Jets had left no doubt this was their series.Now they head back to Winnipeg, where the Jets posted the NHL’s best home record in the regular season. They have a good idea how much this next series means as Canada’s last team still standing and even more special for Winnipeg after the town lost its first NHL team to Arizona.Wheeler said they’re thrilled their fans get to have a celebration.”Our fans have been with us filling up our building for seven years and we haven’t always had the most success, but they’ve always been supportive all over the city,” Wheeler said. ”I don’t think I’ve heard a negative comment in seven years. So now, we’re just happy to keep playing for them.”—
