Jets Head Coach Rick Bowness thought his team lost discipline in a penalty filled third period.

"I don't know. All of a sudden we're getting called for hooking and holding and all of a sudden, those things that weren't there were there. I don't know. All of a sudden, they were getting called, everything, and they were legitimate calls. The referee saw it and I saw it so they were legitimate calls. I guess the answer to your question is that we lost our discipline more than anything. And then, I think, from that, a little frustration built in as the period went along and then it continued into taking more penalties."

Senators Head Coach D.J. Smith felt good about his team's effort on the night. "You know still too many penalties. In a row too, that really ruins the flow in the second period. But we came out really well, I thought we defended really well in our zone. We did enough to cut off odd man rushes. The effort was there."

"It's an exhibition game but I thought as a whole we played well," he added.

Ottawa hosts Montreal to wrap up their pre-season on Saturday. Winnipeg opens their regular season on October 11th in Calgary.
