WINNIPEG -- Ales Hemsky admitted he was feeling down after being traded to Ottawa from Edmonton last Wednesday. But his mood picked up after he had three assists in the struggling Senators 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday afternoon. "Its weird," said Hemsky, whos in his 11th NHL season. "You spend your whole career in one place and then you kind of realize youve come to the end. Its sad because I had a lot of great people there, even the locker-room was great and everybody treated me really well. "I was sad, but in the end I was excited to come here and play those type of games and battle for the playoffs." It was Hemskys second game and first points with Ottawa since he was traded and slotted on to the Senators top line. Milan Michalek scored the games first goal on the power play with an assist from Hemsky and centre Jason Spezza, who had three assists. "Hes an extremely offensively talented player," Spezza said of Hemsky. "I seem like I can read off him fairly easily. Ive watched him play a lot. Hes really good with the puck, hes got that short stick, protects it really well and is a good passer." Defencemen Jared Cowen and Eric Gryba and centres Kyle Turris and Mike Hoffman also scored for Ottawa (28-25-11), which had lost two straight and four of its past five games heading into the match. Craig Anderson stopped 46 shots for the Senators. Spezza said the players arent satisfied splitting their four-game road trip with a win over Vancouver, losses to Edmonton and Calgary and then the victory in Winnipeg. "Its nice to get the win tonight and get two points and get moving in the right direction again, but no, were not happy with .500 out of this trip," Spezza said. "Were fighting for the playoffs. We needed more points than that." Ottawa was six points out of a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference before the game. Turriss goal was his 21st of season, while it was Hoffmans first career goal and assist. Michalek picked up two assists. Jets centre Bryan Little earned his 20th goal of the season. Tobias Enstrom and Dustin Byfuglien also scored for Winnipeg (30-28-7). Ondrej Pavelec started in goal for the Jets, but was replaced in the second period by Al Montoya after giving up five goals on 20 shots. Montoya stopped all 12 shots he faced. The Jets have lost three straight, including overtime against the New York Islanders and in regulation versus Los Angeles. Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice wasnt hanging the loss on Pavelec. "I know he didnt have a chance on the first three (goals)," Maurice said. "The fourth is a play thats going behind the net and its a laser. If he gets that one, its as much luck as it is positioning on that one. "Ive got no problem with him. I didnt take him out to do anything other than calm the bench. He had seen enough." Winnipeg went into the game three points back of Dallas for the final wild-card playoff spot in the Western Conference and one point behind Phoenix, which visits Washington Saturday night. The Senators led 2-1 after the first period and 5-2 following the second. Each team scored a pair of power-play goals. "Anytime youre a team thats going through what were going through at this point, when you have the lead, no lead is safe until the game is over," Ottawa head coach Paul MacLean said. "I think that was the case with us tonight. I thought they came with a push a but at the end of the day I thought our goaltender held the fort for us really well." Michalek scored his 11th goal of the season at 9:54 of the opening period with a deflection off a Jets defender just 20 seconds after defenceman Zach Bogosian went to the penalty box for holding. The goal was reviewed to see if the puck had fully crossed the line behind Pavelec. Little got his stick on a rebound and sent a backhand shot over a stretched-out Anderson at 16:59 with Senators winger Chris Neil off for interference. But the tie was short-lived as Cowens goal came 38 seconds later off a shot from the point. Winnipeg had a two-man advantage for 70 seconds in the period, but couldnt capitalize. Gryba scored 2:03 into the second period during a play that had Jets defenceman Mark Stuart sliding into Pavelec, sending him rolling at the side of the net. Winnipeg regrouped and Evander Kane won a faceoff and sent it back to Enstrom, who blasted a shot past Anderson at 4:15 while Ottawas Cowen was off for slashing. Turris and then Hoffman scored to make it 5-2 and Pavelec went to the bench. Byfuglien scored unassisted with a slapshot 2:13 into the third period for his 14th goal of the season. He said the team has got move on from the loss. "Couple of tough bounces," Byfuglien said. "Pavs been doing everything to keep us in every game." Ottawa was 2 for 4 on the power play and the Jets were 2 for 7. Winnipeg travels to Colorado for a game Monday and then hosts Vancouver on Wednesday. The Senators host Nashville on Monday. Notes: The Jets are now 11-5-2 since head coach Paul Maurice took over on Jan. 12 ... Jason Spezza now has 11 points (2G, 9A) over the last eight games. Tony Oliva Jersey . So true. It is one thing to create a winning football team, and another to keep it winning. Each and every week it changes. The NFL creates a unique interest of not who is "the best", but much more who is "the best this week". Kyle Gibson Jersey . Heck, we might just miss the BCS. Maybe? It sort of worked out this season. Top-ranked Florida State (13-0) was the only team to get through the regular season unbeaten, and the Seminoles did it in dominating fashion. https://www.cheaptwins.com/662t-ryan-lam...wins.html.Corey Brewer had 19 points eight rebounds, five assists and five steals for the Timberwolves, who snapped a six-game losing streak and won for just the third time since Ricky Rubio went out with an injured ankle on Nov. Max Kepler Twins Jersey . David Perron had a career high four-point night with two goals and two assists as the Oilers experienced an offensive explosion, blasting the Columbus Blue Jackets 7-0 to record a rare home win for their second victory in a row. C. J. Cron Jersey . Unfortunately for the Cleveland Cavaliers, James Harden was in the building.SAO PAULO - Kaka is back with Brazils national team after an absence of more than 18 months.Coach Dunga on Friday called up the playmaker to replace injured Cruzeiro midfielder Ricardo Goulart for the match against Argentina on Oct. 11 in Beijing and against Japan on Oct. 14 in Singapore.The 32-year-old Kaka, a member of Brazils squad at the 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cups, hadnt been called up to the Selecao since a friendly against Russia in March last year, when Luiz Felipe Scolari was in charge.Im incredibly happy to be back, Kaka said. After a long time away from the national team, this comes as a reward for the work that I have been doing. It shows that Ive been doing something good.Kaka was Brazils main star at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, in Dungas first stint as coach of the national team. He had been playing well with AC Milan before the 2014 tournament but was left out of the squad by Scolari.I hope I can add a lot to the national team with my experience, he said. I think I can help.Goulart was dropped because of a muscle injury. Dunga also had to replace Chelseas Ramires with Sao Paulo midfieldeer Souza and Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos with Inter Milans Juan.dddddddddddd Both players also were injured. In another recent change, the coach added Gremio goalkeeper Marcelo Grohe to the squad.Kaka, who is on loan at Sao Paulo from Major League Soccer club Orlando City, criticized the Brazilian confederation because he will miss three Sao Paulo games while with the national team. Sao Paulo president Carlos Miguel Aidar called it lamentable that the local calendar is not interrupted for the international break. Other teams will also be without players for domestic games because of Brazils matches.The game against Argentina is dubbed the Super Classic of the Americas, and is organized annually by CONMEBOL, the governing body of football in South America. Brazil won it in 2011 and 2012.The matches in Asia will be Brazils third and fourth games since Dungas return as coach after a disappointing World Cup under Scolari on home soil.
