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.

Kyle Turris stole the puck and passed to MacArthur, who scored and helped the Senators win for the third straight time. They had not won back-to-back games in nearly seven weeks prior to the second win of their current streak.

Milan Michalek and Zack Smith also scored for the Senators, who have four wins in their past five games.

Dustin Byfuglien, Evander Kane and Olli Jokinen scored for the Jets and Al Montoya made 25 saves.
