Nikita Zaitsev scored with 73 seconds left in the third period to break a tie and give the Ottawa Senators a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets.

It's the seventh straight loss for Winnipeg, all in regulation.

Josh Morrissey had tied the game midway through the final frame, but that's all the offence the Jets could muster.

Shots finished up 29-18 for Winnipeg, who fall to 27-21-3 and remain in third place in the all-Canadian division.

Connor Brown had the opening goal for Ottawa, a shorthanded tally in the first period.

Winnipeg now heads to Calgary to finish off the road portion of its schedule.
