Montoya makes 33 saves in Jets' 1-0 win over Sens

The Senators have lost a pair of 1-0 decisions in that span. Ottawa has allowed only 15 goals in eight games.

Kyle Turris, who leads Ottawa with 10 points, said the team needs to bear down and create more opportunities, especially with No. 1 center Jason Spezza out long term because of injury.

"Collectively, we have to come together and find a way to create offense, put pucks and bodies at the net, and gain more offensive zone time. I have to do a better job of that myself," he said. "We know we can do a lot better, we just have to do it more consistently."

Goaltending hasn't been a problem for the Senators, who couldn't produce any offense to get Bishop a win.

"When he's playing that well and giving us a chance, we want to help him out, too, and put at least one or two on the board," Turris said. "Andy and Bish are unreal. They're playing amazing and keeping us in games and giving us a chance to win.

"They do a great job for 60 minutes, giving us a chance, so we have to do a better job helping them out."

The Senators lost Peter Regin to an upper body injury early in the game after he blocked Grant Clitsome's shot. He will be reassessed on Sunday, but MacLean said the injury isn't related to a shoulder problem that has plagued Regin the past two seasons.

NOTES: The Jets entered with the most points from defensemen this season with 34. St. Louis began the day in second place with 31, four more than Ottawa. ... Senators forwards Eric Condra and Colin Greening have both gone five games without a point. ... Jim O'Brien and Andres Benoit were scratched by the Senators. Anthony Peluso and Dustin Byfuglien sat out for the Jets.
