John Gibson knew his Anaheim Ducks had every right to be exhausted late in their third game in three cities over four nights. The 21-year-old goalie also recognized the high stakes for Anaheim against the Montreal Canadiens.
Andrew Hammond turned aside 35 shots to lead the Ottawa Senators in a 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday. Kyle Turris had a goal and an assist while Bobby Ryan and Erik Condra also scored for the Senators, who have won six of their last seven. Michael Frolik scored the only goal of the game for the Jets, who have dropped four of their last six. Michael Hutchinson allowed three goals on 17 shots and was replaced with just over eight minutes to play in the second by Ondrej Pavelec, who stopped all three shots he faced.
