Anders Nilsson stopped 23 shots for the Senators, (22-31-5), who occupy the bottom of the NHL standings and are 3-7-0 in their past 10 games.

Laurent Brossoit made 37 saves for the Jets, a week after he was in net in Ottawa for a 5-2 Winnipeg loss.

Winnipeg led 2-1 after the first period and it was tied 2-2 after two.

Myers scored his second goal, and seventh of the season, through traffic at 14:01 of the third to tie it 3-3. Nilsson then made a huge pad save on a close Blake Wheeler shot with just over a minute remaining in regulation.

The game began with special teams in the spotlight.

Jets defenceman Dmitry Kulikov was given a double minor for high sticking at 1:19, setting the stage for Stone’s power-play goal 19 seconds later.

Winnipeg replied with Tanev’s short-handed marker at 2:56.

However, before Kulikov had fully exited the penalty box, he played the puck and was dinged for interference at 3:40.

Tanev then set up Myers for his short-handed goal at 5:33.

The 2:37 time span between the short-handed goals is the fastest in franchise history. The previous mark was 4:44 by the Atlanta Thrashers in 2003.

The Jets had a pair of potential goals in the second period wiped out after reviews.

A Winnipeg play midway through the period ended with a ruling the puck didn’t cross the goal line when Ottawa defenceman Brady Tkachuk slid into the net with the puck alongside his body.

After Balcers tipped in a Dzingel point shot at 13:53 to tie it 2-2, Jets defenceman Ben Chiarot scored, but Winnipeg was called for offside on the play.

Ottawa ended the period with a two-man advantage that carried over into the third after Jets forward Mathieu Perreault was called for trip at 18:48, and defenceman Jacob Trouba went to the box for a double minor for high sticking at 19:16.

The Senators capitalized with Duchene’s goal 47 seconds into the third, with one second remaining in the two-man advantage. Duchene and Stone each have 27 goals this season.

Winnipeg begins a three-game road trip in Colorado on Wednesday. Ottawa plays in Chicago on Monday.

Notes: Mark Stone’s goal drew some cheers from people in the crowd at Bell MTS Place. The Winnipegger’s name has been in trade rumours with the Jets … Matt Duchene has seven points (six goals, one assist) in his past six games … Winnipeg was without defencemen Dustin Byfuglien (lower body) and Joe Morrow, who was put on injured reserve (lower body) after last Thursday’s loss to Colorado.
