LAST SEASON: 37-35-10, 84 points. Missed playoffs by finishing 10th in Eastern Conference.
COACH: Claude Noel, 2nd season with Jets, 37-35-10; 3rd overall, 47-43-16 in NHL.
ADDED: C Olli Jokinen, LW Alexei Ponikarovsky, G Al Montoya.
LOST: G Chris Mason, LW Tanner Glass, RW Tim Stapleton, D Mark Flood.
PLAYER TO WATCH: After nearly making the team out of training camp last season, 19-year-old center Mark Scheifele is eager for another shot this year. He's a dependable two-way forward who's enjoyed a solid first half of the season playing for Barrie of the Ontario Hockey League.
OUTLOOK: Will the honeymoon of the NHL's return to Winnipeg be over after last season? The former Atlanta Thrashers are still stuck in what's becoming a tough Southeast Division. And until the NHL realigns its divisions, the Jets are still stuck with a grueling travel schedule that could wear them down in a tightly packed 48-game schedule.
LAST SEASON: 41-31-10, 92 points. Lost to New York Rangers 4-3 in first round
COACH: Paul MacLean, 2nd season with Senators and NHL, 41-31-10.
ADDED: RW Guillaume Latendresse, D Marc Methot, D Mike Lundin.
LOST: LW Nick Foligno, C Zenon Konopka, LW Nikita Filatov, D Matt Carkner, D Filip Kuba.
PLAYER TO WATCH: D Erik Karlsson's continued emergence as the NHL's top play-making defenseman. The 22-year-old Swede won his first Norris Trophy in only his second NHL season after leading all blue-liners with 78 points (19 goals, 59 assists).
OUTLOOK: A surprising run to the playoffs led to captain Daniel Alfredsson's decision to put off retirement for at least one more season. The Senators have the capacity to build on last year under the firm direction of MacLean, the longtime Red Wings' assistant, who had an impressive debut as a first-time head coach.

*Jets-Senators Preview* =======================
By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer
Winnipeg (4-5-1) at Ottawa (6-3-2), 2:00 p.m. EDT
The Ottawa Senators had their home winning streak snapped by a hot goaltender in their last game, but that won't be the case on Saturday.
The Senators look to get back on track and pick up a point for the seventh straight home game in a matchup with the struggling Winnipeg Jets.
Ottawa (6-3-2), though, may have to get it done without its No. 1 netminder. Craig Anderson was given the day off at practice Friday and may not start after going 1-2-1 in his last four starts. He is, however, 7-1-1 with a 2.43 goals-against average in his last nine games against the Jets.
If coach Paul MacLean decides to rest Anderson, Ben Bishop would make his second start of the season and first since a 6-4 loss at Tampa Bay on Jan. 25.
The Senators peppered Carolina's Cam Ward with a season-high 47 shots on Thursday, but had their three-game home win streak ended with a 3-2 overtime loss.
"We played such a good game, but credit to their goalie as he kept them in the game," said captain Daniel Alfredsson, who scored in his second straight game. "We had our opportunities to put it away and couldn't."
Ward proved too much for an Ottawa offense that has managed only seven goals in its last four games.
Defenseman Erik Karlsson took over the team lead with his fifth goal on Thursday. He has scored in back-to-back games after failing to score in his previous six.
Karlsson also scored and set up two other goals in Ottawa's season-opening 4-1 win at Winnipeg (4-5-1) on Jan. 19.
Despite Thursday's overtime loss, MacLean was happy with his club's effort.
"We want to come back and reproduce that game again and again and again and again," he said. "We feel we'll get a much better result if we reproduce that game at that level and at that tempo."
The Jets lost for the fourth time in five games, blowing a third-period lead in a 3-2 defeat to visiting Toronto on Thursday.
"When we've got a 2-1 lead going into the third, you've got to be smarter and you've got to close out those games," said Bryan Little, who had a pair of assists.
Ondrej Pavelec struggled again, stopping 15 of 18 shots in the loss. He has lost four of his last five starts, posting a 4.26 goals-against average. He's been even worse during a personal three-game road skid, compiling a 5.85 GAA.
Facing the Senators hasn't been a good way for Pavelec to get back on track. He's lost four straight starts in the series with a 4.34 GAA.
Winnipeg continues to get much of its offense from one of the NHL's highest-scoring defenses. Defenseman Tobias Enstrom leads the team with 13 points, tallying two goals and 10 assists during an eight-game scoring streak.
The Senators are 6-1-2 in their last nine meetings with the Winnipeg-Atlanta franchise.
Milan Michalek has six goals and an assist in his last five games against the Jets.
