    Giroux leads Senators to 3-1 win over Jets

    With the Ottawa Senators and Winnipeg Jets hitting the halfway mark of the NHL pre-season, time is running short for players to make an impression. The Senators improved to 3-1-0 following their 3-1 win over the Jets Friday night, and there was enough for coach D.J. Smith to like. Claude Giroux' second period goal held up as the winner and Vladimir Tarasenko had an empty-net goal, but both of them were already counted on to score goals. Seeing Roby Järventie pick up his second of the pre-season and watching goaltender Kevin Mandolese stop all 19 shots he faced, and Leevi Merilainen giving up one goal on 16 shots, was more likely to catch Smith's attention.
