Pierre-Luc Dubois scored two goals for the Winnipeg Jets in a 4-3 win against the visiting Ottawa Senators on Monday night.

Adam Lowry and Kyle Connor also scored, Andrew Copp and Nikolaj Ehlers had two assists each, and Connor Hellebuyck made 20 saves for the Jets, who avoided what would have been their first three-game losing streak of the season.

Ryan Dzingel and Connor Brown each had a goal and an assist, Josh Norris added a goal, and Anton Forsberg made 42 saves in his second straight start and third since he was claimed off waivers from Carolina on March 17.

The Jets took a 4-1 lead late in the second period before holding on for the win.
