WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Ales Hemsky had four assists in his second game with Ottawa, and the struggling Senators held off the Winnipeg Jets 5-3 on Saturday.

It was Hemsky's first points for the Senators since he was acquired on Wednesday from the Edmonton Oilers. He was placed on Ottawa's top line.

Milan Michalek scored the game's first goal during a power play with an assist from Hemsky and center Jason Spezza, who had three assists.

Defensemen Jared Cowen and Eric Gryba, and Kyle Turris and Mike Hoffman also scored for Ottawa (28-25-11), which had lost two straight and four of five.

Craig Anderson stopped 46 shots for the Senators.

Bryan Little scored his 20th of the season, and Tobias Enstrom and Dustin Byfuglien also had goals for Winnipeg (30-28-7).
