The Ottawa Senators will be without the services of backup goaltender Ben Bishop for two weeks, after he suffered a lower-body injury Saturday night.

Coach Paul MacLean, speaking after the team’s morning skate in Winnipeg Monday, suggested the team will ride Craig Anderson (who will start against the Jets) and Alex Auld the rest of the way.

Bringing Robin Lehner up from Binghamton would require the Senators to burn one of their two remaining call-ups, something they don’t need to do with Anderson healthy and well rested.

Otherwise, there will be no lineup changes for Ottawa.

Ondrej Pavelec will start in goal for the Jets.
