2016-17 SEASON IN REVIEW

MANAGEMENT KEVIN CHEVELDAYOFF GENERAL MANAGER Kevin Cheveldayoff finished his sixth season as General Manager of the Winnipeg Jets after being named to the position in June, 2011. In Cheveldayoff’s first six seasons with the team, the Jets have earned an overall record of 216-191-51. Prior to his time in Winnipeg, Cheveldayoff spent two seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks serving in the role of Assistant General Manager/Senior Director, Hockey Operations. During Cheveldayoff’s tenure, the Blackhawks won the 2010 Stanley Cup championship. Before joining the Blackhawks in 2009, the Blaine Lake, Sask. native spent the previous 12 seasons as the General Manager of the American Hockey League’s Chicago Wolves, guiding the franchise to four league championships, which included the 2002 and 2008 AHL Calder Cup championships and 1998 and 2000 IHL Turner Cup championships. Overall, Cheveldayoff has been a part of seven league championships during his 15-year management career, which includes two Turner Cups in three seasons as the Assistant Vice-President of Hockey Operations and Assistant Coach for the Denver and Utah Grizzlies (1995-96). Cheveldayoff was the architect of 12 Wolves teams that compiled a .615 regular-season winning percentage (544-320-114) and 10 post-season berths between 1997 and 2009. Eight of those clubs reached the 100-point mark during the regular season, while earning four division titles and six post-season conference championships. Originally drafted by the New York Islanders with their first pick (16th overall) in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft, Cheveldayoff began his career in the AHL with the Capital District Islanders, serving as the alternate captain from 1991 to 1993. He held the same role with the Salt Lake Golden Eagles in 1993-94, earning the team’s “Unsung Hero Award” after racking up a career-high 216 penalty minutes in 73 games. Known as a defensive defenceman during his playing days, a knee injury cut his professional career short after five seasons. Cheveldayoff spent four seasons with the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL, where he played in 214 games and collecting 81 points (12g, 69a), as well as 759 penalty minutes. Kevin and his wife, Janet, have one son, Chase, and one daughter, Lexi.

In 2014-15, Maurice became the second-youngest NHL coach to earn 500 wins after a 8-2 victory over Florida on January 13, 2015. Maurice, who coached in his 1300th NHL game on November 13, 2015, has earned a career NHL coaching record of 596-569-200 in 18 seasons with the Carolina Hurricanes/Hartford Whalers and the Toronto Maple Leafs. He won his 400th career NHL game when the Hurricanes defeated the Buffalo Sabres in overtime on Feb. 11, 2010, and on Nov. 28, 2010, he became the 19th coach, and the youngest in history, to coach 1,000 NHL games. In his first head coaching stint with the Hurricanes, Maurice guided Carolina to the 2002 Eastern Conference title and two Southeast Division crowns as well as four consecutive winning seasons from 1998-2002.

Internationally, Maurice served as an Assistant Coach for Team Europe at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey and Canada at the 2014 World Championship. Prior to moving to the NHL level during the summer of 1995 as an Assistant Coach with the Whalers, Maurice spent two seasons as Head Coach of the Ontario Hockey League’s Detroit Jr. Red Wings. While in Detroit, he compiled a regular-season record of 86-38-8 and led the team to the 1995 OHL Championship and an appearance in the Memorial Cup in Kamloops, B.C. That season, he finished second in voting to Guelph’s Craig Hartsburg for the Matt Leyden Trophy, which is annually awarded to the OHL’s Coach of the Year. Maurice played his junior hockey with the OHL’s Windsor Spitfires (1984-1988). He was Philadelphia’s 12th choice, 252nd overall, in the 1985 NHL entry draft. Maurice had his career cut short due to an eye injury, and began coaching as an assistant with the Spitfires shortly thereafter.

TAKE IT OUTSIDE Investors Group Field hosted the fourth Heritage Classic on Oct. 23 when the Jets faced off against the Edmonton Oilers…This was the 19th outdoor game in NHL history…After a delayed start, the Oilers blanked the Jets 3-0…The final attendance was 33,240, the largest in franchise history.

NEW CAPTAIN IN TOWN Forward Blake Wheeler was named captain of the Winnipeg Jets on Aug. 31, while defenceman Dustin Byfuglien and forward Mark Scheifele were named alternate captains…Wheeler finished the season on an eight-game point streak (4g, 7a), which was his longest point streak this season…He also had a point in 12 of his last 13 games (6g, 12a)…Since the franchise relocated to Winnipeg in 2011, Wheeler leads the team in scoring with 385 points (139g, 246a) in 451 games and is the only player to surpass 300 points since that time…Since the 2012-13 season, Wheeler is 11th in NHL scoring with 322 points (124g, 198a) in 372 games.

SCORING BUNCH The Jets scored 246 goals this season, their most since 2008-09 (257)…The 246 goals was good for seventh in the NHL in 2016-17…Winnipeg scored 131 goals at home, which was tied for fourth in the NHL this season…The Jets were tied for the NHL lead with five players scoring more than 20 goals this year: Patrik Laine (36), Mark Scheifele (32), Blake Wheeler (26), Nikolaj Ehlers (25) and Bryan Little (21)…The last time this franchise had five players with 20 or more goals was 2005-06 when Ilya Kovalchuk (52), Marian Hossa (39), Marc Savard (28), Vyacheslav Koslov (25) and Peter Bondra (21) all eclipsed that mark.

INTERNATIONAL STAGE Seven Winnipeg Jets were selected to represent their country at the 2017 IIHF World Championship in Paris, France and Cologne, Germany… For Canada, Mark Scheifele, Josh Morrissey and Eric Comrie put on the red and white…Connor Hellebuyck, Jacob Trouba and Andrew Copp suited up for the United States, while Nikolaj Ehlers represented his home country of Denmark.

2016-17 SEASON IN REVIEW

LOTS OF ACTION The Jets set an NHL record by playing 32 games in the first 60 days of the season…In comparison, 15 teams in the NHL had played less than 30 games at the same point of the season…The Jets were 13-16-3 over the 32 games, which included six back-to-backs…The Jets had only two breaks lasting more than one day between Oct. 13 and Dec. 11.

HOME IS WHERE HELLE IS BEST Connor Hellebuyck posted a 15-10-1 record at home this season for the Jets… He finished with a GAA of 2.60, while recording a .917 SV%…All four of his shutouts came at home this season (Nov. 15 vs. CHI, Nov. 27 vs. NSH, Jan.9 vs. CGY and Mar. 3 vs. STL)… Hellebuyck won five out of his last six games at home, dating back to Mar. 16 at NYI…He stopped 171 of 188 shots, good for a .909 save percentage over those games.

HOT GOALTENDING The Jets weren’t afraid to shoot the puck this season but they often ran into superb goaltending…In games when the Jets had 35 or more shots, they were 7-8-1… When they outshot their opponent, they were 17-19-3...When they were outshot, the Jets were 20-22-1.

TAMING THE BEASTS IN THE EAST The Jets won their final five games against Eastern Conference teams to finish the season 1414-4 against Eastern Conference teams…Winnipeg earned points in nine of their last 10 games against the East (7-1-2)…The Jets won only three of their first 11 games against the East and two of those three wins came in overtime.

YEAR END AWARDS

THREE STARS FOR LAINE

COMMUNITY MO

LITTLE PERSEVERES

The Winnipeg Jets Three Stars Award was presented to Patrik Laine. The 18-year-old was recognized game-after-game for his solid play and emergence as a top goal scorer. Laine led the Jets with 36 goals last season, which was second among NHL rookies and sixth in the NHL. He finished the season with 64 points (36G, 28A) in 73 games and received the most ‘stars’ of any Winnipeg Jets player this season.

The Wawanesa Insurance Community Service Award was presented to defenceman Josh Morrissey for his commitment to the community. During his first full season with the Jets, Morrissey continued his commitment to the community taking time out of his busy schedule to spend time with those in need, under served and going through difficult situations. Over the past year, Josh met and spent time with kids participating in the True North Youth Foundation’s Hockey Academy after multiple home games. He’s personally donated to The True North Youth Foundation and visited the Children’s Hospital of Manitoba on various occasions, both with his team and by himself, spending time with kids and families going through difficult times. Last January, Morrissey became the ambassador for The Dream Factory, formally known as the Rainbow Society.

The Dan Snyder Memorial Award is awarded each year to the Winnipeg Jets player who embodies perseverance, dedication and hard work without reward or recognition, so that his team and teammates might succeed. Forward Bryan Little was presented with the Dan Snyder Memorial Award for the 2016-17 season. After missing the last 25 games last season with a neck injury, Little injured his knee in the first game this season and missed the subsequent 23 games. He returned in late November and tallied 47 points (21G, 26A) in 59 games. He leads the Jets in faceoff circle by winning 55.7% of his draws this season, which is a career high.

E E N I M O N Bryan Little was named by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association (PHWA) as the team’s nominee for the Bill Masterton Trophy, awarded annually by the National Hockey League to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. Little, 29, was selected by the Winnipeg chapter of the PHWA for his outstanding 2016-17 campaign and his ability to overcome a pair of serious injury challenges during the past two seasons – a broken vertebrae suffered last February in a game against the Tampa Bay Lightning and a knee injury he suffered four shifts into the season opener against the Carolina Hurricanes.

HURRICANES JETS

WINNIPEG - What a night, Winnipeg. What. A. Night. In a wildly entertaining game Thursday - the likes of which we haven’t seen in quite some time - the Winnipeg Jets roared back from a three-goal, third-period deficit to tie the game before winning it 5-4 in overtime, courtesy of Mark Scheifele. Blake Wheeler led the way with a three-point (1G, 2A) night, while Patrik Laine scored his first NHL goal before assisting on Mathieu Perreault’s game-tying marker with a minute-and-a-half to play, helping the Jets complete the comeback and ignite the sold-out crowd at MTS Centre. “It was an amazing feeling,” Laine said. “You only score your first NHL goal once, so it was nice to get it in the first game. It was amazing to feel the atmosphere in the rink.” After Wheeler cut the deficit to two with an unassisted shorthanded tally 5:09 into the third period (and just nine seconds after Viktor Rask put the Hurricanes up 4-1), Laine scored the goal that he will remember for the rest of his life. On the power play, and with Drew Stafford setting the perfect screen in front, the Finn took a pass at the top of the near circle and beat Carolina goalie Cam Ward with a beautiful shot top shelf, pulling the Jets within one and nearly blowing the roof off in the process. Best of all: Laine’s family was on hand to soak it all in. “I think it was a nice moment for them to see their son get his first NHL goal,” he said. “It was nice to have them all here to see my first game.” Kyle Connor picked up his first NHL point with an assist on the goal. And Laine wasn’t done yet. With the goalie pulled, he made a fabulous cross-ice pass to the captain, who then found Perreault in the blue paint for the equalizer just a few minutes later. It was an incredible play all around, and one that properly showcased the many strengths of the Jets’ prized draft pick. The Jets, who were mostly outplayed through two periods, outshot the Hurricanes 12-5 in the finale frame. Scheifele finished it in overtime, converting a beautiful feed from Wheeler on a 2-on-1 to give the Jets a season-opening 5-4 win. “We were playing pretty (well) in the third period,” Laine said. “Wheels got the shorthanded goal which was just amazing. Then things just started to go the right way. We managed to do our thing and get those two important goals.” Shawn Matthias got things rolling with his first as a Jet early in the first period to round out the scoring for Winnipeg. Connor Hellebuyck made 23 saves. Laine, meanwhile, finished with two points, two shots and two hits in 18:27 of ice time. “It’s so hard in this league to build confidence; you’re kind of starting from scratch. (Laine) knows what type of player he is, he knows what he’s done in the past, but until you do it on this level, you have that little bit of doubt,” Wheeler said. “Once you saw him pop that one in, he took off.” Did he ever. Enjoy it, Jets fans. This kid is special. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

ST. PAUL - Tonight, the comeback-ers became the comeback-ees. In a script opposite of Thursday’s delirious third-period rally, the Winnipeg Jets allowed four unanswered goals en route to a 4-3 loss to the division rival Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center. Nikolaj Ehlers and Blake Wheeler scored the first two goals, and Mark Scheifele added one late to round out the scoring for Winnipeg. Michael Hutchinson made 27 saves in the defeat. The Jets were smothered in the final 40 minutes, recording just eight shots on Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk. “They did a real nice job with their coverage and we had a hard time moving past that,” Head Coach Paul Maurice said. “We didn’t have second and third touches on the puck, which is something we’re usually pretty strong at. … (We need to) be a little stronger down there, hang on to a few more pucks and get them through to the net. “Waiting for things to open up rarely works. Things always open up after chaos gets created and we didn’t create enough chaos in the offensive zone to open up some of the plays we were looking for.” The Jets opened up a two-goal lead with a pair of quick goals late in the first period, but the Wild tied things up with two of their own, 58 seconds apart, in the front half of the middle frame. Ehlers opened the scoring with a rip awfully reminiscent of his first-career goal tallied one year ago at Madison Square Garden. Minnesota defenceman Jonas Brodin carelessly dished the puck up the middle and Ehlers, anticipating the move, stepped up, picked off the pass and unleashed a bomb bar down to give the Jets a 1-0 lead. Then, with just 1.2 ticks left to play, Wheeler extended the lead with a nifty redirection in front, surprising Dubnyk with a subtle touch of Dustin Byfuglien’s long shot from the centre point. The offensive production sputtered from that point forward. “You have to give them credit. They got a little bit quicker after the first period and made it tougher for us to regain possession in the offensive zone,” Wheeler said. “There were some times where we had some opportunities in the offensive zone and had some possession time, but we just held on to it a little bit too long. Once we get it set up, once we get possession of it, we need to be a little bit quicker trying to establish a shot, get on that rebound and set up our offence from there.” Wheeler now has 20 points (10G, 10A) in his last 13 games overall dating back to last year. Mark Scheifele, who scored the overtime winner in Thursday’s home opener, picked up the second assist, extending his point streak (7G, 10A) to 12 games. Chris Stewart bowled his way to the net and buried a shot in tight to cut the deficit to one, 7:25 into the second period. Hutchinson made a miraculous effort to reach back snatch it off the goal line, but the puck had just rolled across, giving the Wild their first of the night. The Wild pulled even on a Matt Dumba goal less than a minute later, and just four seconds into an Adam Lowry penalty, before Eric Staal put them up 3-2 late in the period. Staal finished off a beautiful pass from Charlie Coyle in the blue paint to score his first of the year, and first in a Minnesota sweater. The three Wild goals came in a seven minute and 35 second span. Hutchinson came up with a number of key stops and could not be blamed for the loss. “I felt good, I felt good about my whole game,” he said. “That fourth goal I’d like to have back - that’s on me - but I was feeling pretty confident.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

BRUINS JETS

WINNIPEG - They had to be better and they were. They were quicker, more assertive, aggressive and more determined to “create chaos” deep in enemy territory. And yet, while the Winnipeg Jets had their most productive night of the season on the shot clock, the result was the same in an oddly low-scoring affair. Unlike the previous two games, the opportunities on this night - many as there were - just didn’t sink. They were better, but they weren’t perfect. The Jets outshot the Bruins 35-25 and carried the play for much of the night, but were defeated 4-1 Monday, falling to 1-2 on the season. Blake Wheeler had Winnipeg’s lone goal, while Connor Hellebuyck made 21 saves. Don’t be fooled by the final score. It was either a tied or one-goal game for more than 58 minutes until the Bruins added two in the final 1:59 - Brandon Carlo’s first NHL goal and an empty netter by Zdeno Chara - to seal a 4-1 win. “We want to be able to consistently generate (offence) in a certain way - things that we can replicate,” Head Coach Paul Maurice said. “That was the real positive for us. We had a lot of (offensive)-zone time against a pretty well schooled defensive team. There was some finish, some shot-blocking and final release of the puck that didn’t go for us, but it’s a starting point. “That’s usually the way it works. You’ll score four (goals) in two (games) where you don’t like your offensive game and one in a game that you’re much better in that area. You just want to make sure that you keep replicating that so you can generate that kind of offence. … Having an opportunity to get better at it and seeing it tonight was a positive.” It was a 1-1 game with the Jets holding a 15-9 edge in shots after one period of play. Wheeler drew first blood for the Jets at the 10-minute mark, but Dominic Moore and the Bruins replied just 19 seconds later to tie things up. Out of the box, Wheeler took a long pass from Alexander Burmistrov, worked his way in alone and completely undressed Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask with a marvellous move on the forehand. Wheeler now has 21 points (11G, 10A) in his last 14 games overall dating back to last year. Almost as quickly - and with the capacity crowd still in a frenzy - the Bruins’ fourth line struck as Noel Acciari cycled the puck back Tim Schaller, who found Moore lurking at the doorstep. The first-year Bostonian made no mistake, rifling a shot up top from the lip of the blue paint. Chara looked to put the Bruins on top early in the middle frame, but Jets video coach Matt Prefontaine called for the play to be challenged. After review, it was determined the Bruins’ entry was offside, and the goal was called back. David Pastrnak put the Bruins in front with under a minute to play in the second as he tried to send a pass from the near wall to the goalmouth, but had it deflect off Toby Enstrom and in for his fourth goal in three games this season. The Jets outshot the Bruins 12-7 in period two and carried a 27-16 overall advantage into the third and final frame. “We came out in the third and had some jam,” said Mathieu Perreault, who finished with three shots in over 17 minutes of ice time. “We had a good, hard push at the end. Obviously they scored that goal with two minutes left and that was a killer. … We battled in the third, we just came up short.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

MAPLE LEAFS JETS

WINNIPEG - Tonight, we witnessed history. Patrik Laine scored his first NHL hat trick to help the Jets overcome a four-goal deficit and defeat the Toronto Maple leafs 5-4 in overtime. Laine, the No. 2 pick in last June’s draft, scored the winning goal almost immediately after Jets goalie Michael Hutchinson stopped the No. 1 selection, Auston Matthews, on a breakaway. Dustin Byfuglien sent the puck up to Laine on the right-wing boards, creating a 2-on-1 with Nikolaj Ehlers. Laine looked off at the top of the circle and fired a beauty past Toronto goalie Frederik Andersen for the winner. And this, after already scoring twice - including one with the goalie pulled with just 55 seconds left in regulation - to help the Jets rally from a four-goal deficit and send it to overtime. “It’s the best league in the world and I scored three goals,” said Laine, humble as always, before adding of the winner: “It went right where I wanted it go. It was an amazing feeling to help my team win with those goals.” Asked whether or not he heard the fans, who were chanting his name throughout the third period, Laine quipped: “Yeah. Who wouldn’t hear them? Mark Scheifele had a goal and two assists, while Tyler Myers netted the other for Winnipeg, on a great feed from No. 55. The Jets had trouble getting anything going at both ends of the ice in the first 35 minutes, leading Maurice to shuffle his lines in the third. Laine, Scheifele and Drew Stafford formed the new top line, Ehlers, Mathieu Perreault and Blake Wheelermade up the second unit, while Shawn Matthias, Adam Lowry and Joel Armia rounded out the Top 9. Kyle Connor, Alexander Burmistrov and Brandon Tanev skated together on the fourth line, but saw only a few minutes of ice time. But even with all that, a surge unlike any other, the magic happened when Ehlers and Laine hooked up, first with the net empty, and the other in overtime. 5-4, final. After Myers got things rolling offensively late in the second period, the Jets took over in the final frame. And it started with No. 29. Scheifele won the draw back to Byfuglien, who found Laine in front for the turnaround wrister that cut the deficit to two. With Toronto defenceman Martin Marincin all over him, the rookie spun, fired and found a sliver just under the bar for his second of the season. Laine’s ability to get a quality shot off in almost any situation bears repeating: It’s ridiculous. The Jets made it a one-goal game at 6:05. The initial blast from Josh Morrissey was blocked in the high slot, but Scheifele was quick to the scene, pouncing on the loose pill, pulling to the middle and firing that patented wrister of his high, blocker side. Laine did the rest in the final minute, off a terrific feed from Ehlers after faking a shot at the right point. This was the first time in franchise history the club has come back from a four-goal deficit to win. Toronto built up a 2-0 lead after one on goals by Connor Carrick and Nazem Kadri before a pair of power-play markers looked to put this one out of reach. But it wasn’t. Not with Laine ready to make a statement at the other end. A magical one at that. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

OILERS JETS

WINNIPEG - The experience, they said, was once-in-a-lifetime. A spectacle - like nothing we’d ever seen before. Unfortunately for the home team, just one thing was left out of an otherwise incredible weekend. Mark Letestu, Darnell Nurse and Zack Kassian scored second-period goals, while Cam Talbot made 31 saves to give the Oilers a 3-0 win over the Jets. Connor Hellebuyck made 29 saves in a losing cause. The game started at 3:53pm CT after the weather - ‘intermittent sunlight,’ to be precise - played a factor for the first time this week. Melting ice and excessive glare were the main concerns, prompting NHL executives to play it safe and delay the game until the sun disappeared over the stadium’s southwest corner. “We were told it was going to be about an hour, so obviously you start to (cool down),” Scheifele said. “But once we were told what time (the game would start), we got back into our routine and when we saw the atmosphere out there, we definitely got a bit of a boost.” A lively crowd of more than 33,000 sure heated the place up in a hurry. After a two-hour delay, the temperature at puck drop was a balmy 10.1 degrees. “The conditions were great,” Wheeler said. “It was great weather, they did a great job with the ice. We really couldn’t ask for better conditions. “It took both teams a little bit of time to get their legs under them. It was kind of a whirlwind getting going and getting the heart rate up again. … But I thought we settled in nicely.” The Jets were in total control after a strong first period, until a disastrous power play midway through the second turned the tide in a big way. Letestu kicked things off with a shorthanded goal, just 21 seconds into a Nurse penalty, after Dustin Byfuglien gave the puck away at the centre point. Letestu jumped on it and made the 125-foot trek downfield before firing a low shot past Hellebuyck. Then, as the penalty expired, Nurse jumped up in the rush buried a feed from Connor McDavid to put the Oilers up by two at 11:09. “It was our chance to maybe get a lead and all of a sudden, we’re down two goals,” Mathieu Perreaultsaid. “It’s kind of how this game goes sometimes, but we’re going to have to bear down in key times of games and be better.” Kassian made it a 3-0 game after Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Benoit Pouliot hounded the Jets, forcing a turnover just inside the blue line. After taking the no-look, behind-the-back pass from Pouliot, Kassian rifled a shot top shelf to put the Oilers up by a commanding margin. “Those turnovers on good ice, bad ice, whatever, they’re going to end up in your net. They were obvious and the result was emphatic,” Head Coach Paul Maurice said. “We certainly would have liked to give the fans one reason to get out of their seats today and we couldn’t do that…but it was such a spectacular week here in Winnipeg.” Talbot was the difference early on, stopping 10 Winnipeg shots in a heavily tilted opening frame. Patrik Laine was turned aside twice in the period - once on a beautifully crafted 2-on-1 with Mark Scheifele, and the other in tight after putting the moves on Oilers defenceman Andrej Sekera - and Nikolaj Ehlers had a great chance fall by the wayside as well, leaving the game in scoreless draw through 20 minutes of play. In the end, those missed opportunities proved costly. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

DALLAS, Texas - Paul Maurice was right when he said these divisional games had a different feel to them. The Jets, having lost three of their first five to start the young season, were facing an injury-riddled Stars team in the opening end of a home-and-home series, and were eager to show they would be no easy beat in the stout Central Division this year. With each of their next three - including two on the road - being played against divisional opponents, it was an opportunity to make a statement, of sorts, and keep pace before embarking on their most difficult stretch of the season. They did that, but the result didn’t fall their way. The Jets were in control for much of the night, resulting in one of the better performances of the season so far, but on the strength of 28 saves from goaltender Antti Niemi, the Stars prevailed 3-2. Joel Armia and Mark Scheifele scored for Winnipeg, while Michael Hutchinson made 23 saves. “I liked the offence tonight more than any other night that we’ve played,” Maurice said. “I liked our 60-minute game. I thought we worked our tails off, I thought we were hard forechecking, hard driving… If we play that way 82 (times a year) we take it all day long.” With the loss, the Jets fall to 2-4 on the year. They play the Stars again on Thursday back home at MTS Centre. After withstanding some early pressure, thanks in large part to play of Hutchinson, the Jets fell behind at 14:37 as Brett Ritchie took a pass from Curtis McKenzie on a 2-on-1-turned-breakaway and fired a shot five-hole to put the home team in front. Stars goalie Antti Niemi kept it that way with eight saves in the opening 20, including a pair on Shawn Matthias, who was one of the most dangerous forwards on either side early on. Alexander Burmistrov had an eventful period for the Jets, missing a shorthanded breakaway at one end before coming back on the very same power play and preventing a goal by clamping down on the stick of Radek Faksa, who had an open net in tight. A helpless Josh Morrissey did his best to defend the ensuing 2-on-1, but after Hutchinson made the initial stop off John Klingberg, the blueliner tumbled awkwardly on top of him, leaving Patrick Eaves with all 24 square feet of the net to shoot for. The Jets challenged the play, believing it would be called back for goaltender interference, but the officials thought otherwise. The Jets were all over the Stars in the middle frame and were finally rewarded with just five seconds left. Armia chased down a dump in, hounded the goalie behind the net, stole the puck away and stuffed it home on his backhand for his first of the year. Armia was one of, if not the best players on the ice. Just moments before the goal, he made a great, one-touch pass to Toby Enstrom to set up a scoring chance, and was credited with three of the Jets’ 13 shots on goal in the second period. The Jets had 27 of the 41 (65.8%) shot attempts in the period. It’s a dominant figure, and one worth repeating considering the opponent, the reigning division champs. The Stars were pinned in their own end to start the third period, but Tyler Seguin put this one away with a shot from below the right dot, top shelf, at 7:27. Scheifele scored on the power play with 10 seconds to play to ice a 3-2 final. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - You just knew that after a strong showing, but the wrong result, the other night in the Big D, they would come out and get the job done tonight. They’ve been trending that way - the right way - for some time, but just haven’t been rewarded. Until tonight. This was a different Winnipeg Jets team. For the first time all year, they played with a lead, loved it, and floored it right to the finish line, Patrik Laine scored a pair of power-play goals, Kyle Connor picked up his first NHL tally, and Tyler Myersnetted the other in a 4-1 win over the Stars. Connor Hellebuyck had a terrific night between the pipes, making 38 saves in the victory. Laine finished the night with a team-high seven shots in 17:48 of ice time. He is atop of the Jets leaderboard in both goals (6) and points (8) in seven games. “When I came here they had the worst power play last year. I thought that I could bring something to the power play and now I’ve got a couple goals,” Laine said. “Those are important goals for our team. I’m just trying to get my team win. “When you’re hot, you’re hot.” The Jets got the start they were looking for, scoring the game’s first goal just 15 seconds in as Myers unloaded from the right point, beating a screened Antti Niemi clean on the blocker side. The Jets were in total control before a penalty to Stars forward Radek Faksa turned an already tilted opening stanza into a laugher on the shot clock. The Jets had the Stars pinned in their own end for the entire two minutes, firing eight shots on goal, with another four either blocked or forced wide by the exhausted Dallas defenders. Connor doubled the Winnipeg lead on a 2-on-1 with 3:47 to play in the period, roofing a shot from the right circle after getting a beautiful feed from Nikolaj Ehlers, who delivered a deft, no-look pass under the stick of the sprawling Esa Lindell. Shots favoured the Jets 21-13 after a wildly entertaining first period. Laine’s power-play goal put the Jets up by three just four-and-aminutes into the middle frame. The rookie made it look easy, snapping a quick wrister from the top of the far circle top shelf only eight seconds into the penalty. Tyler Seguin cut the deficit to two with a power play goal early in the third period, but that was as close as they would get. Laine put this one away with an absolutely terrifying shot from the left point, restoring the three-goal lead on a 5-on-3 at 10:17.r 27th, With the win, the Jets improve to 3-4 on the year. After the game, they immediately flew to Denver for another pivotal, Central Division clash tomorrow night against the Colorado Avalanche. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

JETS AVALANCHE

DENVER, Colorado - For the second time in as many nights, an outstanding goaltending performance backstopped the Winnipeg Jets to victory. Michael Hutchinson, who was given the reigns on this, Night 2 of a difficult back-to-back situation, turned in his best performance of the season, denying all 37 shots he faced to lead his team to a shutout win over the Central Division rival Colorado Avalanche. Shawn Matthias got the game’s only goal, scoring off a beautiful feed from Joel Armia midway through the second period to put the Jets in front for good. “It was a strong performance by us,” captain Blake Wheeler said. “It’s never easy in back-to-back games, and traveling from Winnipeg to Denver, it poses a lot of challenges. We did a great job with that and it’s something we can be proud of. “From the drop of the puck you could tell we had the right mindset. … There wasn’t a whole lot to be had on either side, but we capitalized on of our great chances and our goaltending and defence did a good job keeping it out of our net. 1-0, back-to-back, on the road? That’s like a Picasso right there.” The shutout was Hutchinson’s first in 51 appearances, dating back to Jan. 21, 2015. In the last two nights combined, the two Winnipeg netminders - Hutchinson and Connor Hellebuyck - have stopped 75 of 76 shots. “You need that on back-to-back nights,” Head Coach Paul Maurice said. “(Hutchinson) was spectacular and especially in some of the chaos that was going on in front of the net. He found a way to get a piece of some of those shots. I’m happy for him; he’s worked hard. He’s played three very strong games for us and now he gets the statistically number that reflects that.” A couple of nights ago, Matthias - a former Av - told WinnipegJets. com that the next time he got a pass like the one or two he got in a disappointing one-goal loss to the Stars, he was going to bury it. Promise kept. And what a way to do it. Another exceptional pass by Armia landed right on the tape at the far circle and No. 16 made no mistake, launching a sizzler five-hole on Avs goalie Semyon Varlamov. “It’s nice to score against your former team,” Matthias said. “These last two nights have been huge for our club. Hutchinson kept the Jets in front with a number of incredible stops, including a pair off Jarome Iginla during a nervy Avalanche power play. The Jets were having an excellent game through two periods but fatigue became a factor in the final frame as the Avalanche poured it on. The Jets were outshot 20-4, but Hutchinson held them off. “It’s always nice to get a shutout, but at the end of the day, as long as you get two points that’s all that matters.” “We started right, which was good,” Maurice said, pleased that the team carried over a strong performance 24 hours ago against another division rival. “We handled some adversity early in the game in the disallowed goal. We started to show it a little bit in the third, but when all the prettiness in the game left, we blocked shots, took hits and did all the hard things you need to do.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

SABRES JETS

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets were playing their third game in three-and-a-half days, and, for about a third of the night, anyway, it showed. After a busy week of travel, beginning on Tuesday in Dallas, those already heavy legs - the result of a back-to-back, and another trip down south just 36 hours ago - had little to give in that opening frame, putting the Jets in a deep hole that they were unable to climb out of in the final 40 minutes. The Jets had a strong and second and third, outshooting their opponents by 30-13 margin, but by then the damage had been done. Kyle Okposo scored twice and Brian Gionta chipped in with a single, while Robin Lehner made 37 saves to give the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-0 win over the Jets at MTS Centre. Nikolaj Ehlers had Winnipeg’s lone goal, putting home a loose puck after Blake Wheeler’s point shot bounced out on the opposite off the end boards early in the third period. Ehlers, who now has a pair on the year, was moved back onto the top line with Wheeler and Mark Scheifele after a first period that saw the Jets fall behind by two. Michael Hutchinson, who posted a 37-save shutout the other night in Denver, was pulled after allowing three goals on 15 shots. Connor Hellebuyck came on relief, stopping all 13 shots he faced. “It’s tough,” Jets captain Blake Wheeler said, lamenting the squandered chance to win three straight for the first time this year. “We control(ed) a lot of the play and to be down by three goals, it shoots your momentum a little bit. I thought we did a good job staying with it. I thought we played that game in their end.” The two Buffalo goals just 1:58 apart in the first period, and were both the result of Winnipeg turnovers. Okposo drew first blood at 10:51 after the Sabres killed off an early penalty. The former Islander banged home a second shot - fortuitously picking the glove-hand corner in the process - after his initial blast from the edge of the right circle was blocked in front. The Sabres took a two-love lead at 12:49 as Gionta led a 2-on-1 with the equally speedy Marcus Foligno, but the Buffalo captain looked off and fired a quick shot. Gionta then raced in and poked home his own rebound after Hutchinson, who made a great glove save on the first one, bobbled the puck in the blue paint. The goal came on the heels of a strong shift by the Jets, but a wide shot by Byfuglien, combined with a leisurely change at the Winnipeg bench, created the odd-man opportunity. Okposo made it a 3-0 game at 13:59 of the second after another turnover, 150 feet from the Winnipeg net, ended up in the back of it. The Jets were in a middle of a change and failed the get the puck deep in a 1-on-4 play at the offensive blue line. The Sabres quickly turned it back the other way and Okposo sniped home his second of the night to give the visitors a commanding lead. It was after this goal that Hutchinson’s night came to an end. “I didn’t like the last two (goals). He played so very well (the other night), so I didn’t pull him out of anger,” said Maurice, adding of the turnover: “That shot should never have happened.” Ehlers cut the deficit to two at 4:49 of the third, as part of a 17-7 run in shots in that fateful final frame. “It’s good to get some change every once in a while. Paul wanted to change things up at the end of the first period and I think I went in and used my speed there very well. I created time and space for (Scheifele) and (Wheeler), so hopefully we can keep building on that.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

JETS CAPITALS

WINNIPEG - Mark Scheifele and Adam Lowry supplied the offence as the Winnipeg Jets rallied in thrilling fashion from a 2-0, third-period deficit, but then… Heartbreak. Capitals forward Jay Beagle spoiled the party, scoring the winning goal with just 30 seconds left in the third period to give the visitors a 3-2 win Tuesday at MTS Centre. The Jets fired a season-high 45 shots, but for the fourth and most maddening time this year, outshooting their opponent just wasn’t enough. Beagle beat Lowry on an offensive-zone faceoff, got the puck back to John Carlson at the point, who then found the forward in front for the winning goal after the Jets tallied twice in a 3:31 span to tie things up late in the third period. Marcus Johansson had a goal and an assist for the Caps, while Braden Holtby made 43 saves to preserve the victory. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 24 for Winnipeg. “There’s going to come a time when (Lowry) takes that draw in a far more important game with the experience tonight… he digs in a little harder and gets a little better at it,” Maurice said. “He’s made real good improvements with his faceoffs this year. That’s the job he’s training to do.” With the loss, the Jets are now 4-6-0 on the year, but are pleased with how they’ve been playing of late - as frustrating as the most recent results have been, which is to say: Very. Blake Wheeler had an assist and led all forwards with 22:50 of ice time. He, along with Scheifele and Nikolaj Ehlers, combined for 16 of the Jets’ 45 shots. Lowry, who felt the emotion at either end of the spectrum late in that pivotal third period, had a season- and career-high six. Hellebuyck gave his team a chance with an exceptional third. With the Caps on the power play early on, Nicklas Backstrom made a great cross-ice pass to the Great 8, Alexander Ovechkin, but the goalie went post-to-post to make an incredible right-pad save on the one-timer. Scheifele got things rolling offensively as a part of a 16-shot third period for the Jets. His initial blast from the right circle was easily turned aside, but he jumped on his own rebound and snapped a quick shot past Holtby to get the home side on the board at 13:04. Then, Lowry got the Jets back on even terms with his first of the year 17:35. Joel Armia won a key board battle, got the puck down low to Lowry, and No. 17 made no mistake, driving the net and stuffing it home with a nifty move on the forehand. Winnipeg trailed by one but had a 14-8 lead on the shot clock after one period of play. Capitals defenceman Karl Alzner opened the scoring with 43 seconds left in the period, firing a long shot through traffic and having it deflect off Ben Chiarot in front, beating a partially screened Hellebuyck high over the glove. Johansson orchestrated the whole thing, winning a battle behind the Winnipeg net before dishing off to Alzner at the far point to record his team-leading fifth assist. With a game-high three shots on goal to credit at this point in the game, Johansson eluded cover between the dots and buried a beautiful pass from Evgeny Kuznetsov to put the Capitals up by two at 8:15. The 26-year-old now has five goals in the past three games and six on the year to lead the Capitals in scoring.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - A common refrain reverberated around the Winnipeg Jets’ locker room following a 4-3 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals on Thursday. At the heart of it all: A deep sense of pride in both the jersey, and each other. “We haven’t quit once this year,” added captain Blake Wheeler. Their resilience was on full display at the Verizon Center, as Lowry, Toby Enstrom and Marko Dano fuelled a furious third-period comeback that helped the Cardiac Kids erase a 3-0, third-period deficit, force overtime and ultimately gain a valuable point in the standings. Unfortunately, they just couldn’t get the other. Alexander Ovechkin scored a power-play goal 3:21 into the extra period to give the Caps the win - their second straight over the Jets. Ovechkin scored another in regulation, while Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie had the others. Michael Hutchinson made 28 saves for Winnipeg. Enstrom got things rolling with a shorthanded marker, just 2:09 in, as he stepped up on a scramble in the high slot. John Carlsson’s backhand pass up the middle was picked off by Brandon Tanev, who, after the creating the turnover, immediately put it back in the Capitals’ end. Braden Holtby came way out of his net to make a play, but collided with Wheeler in a race for the loose puck. Following up, Enstrom circled the mass and found the net with a beautifully placed wrister, pulling the Jets within two. From there, it was all Winnipeg. Lowry made it a one-goal game at 5:23 and Dano tied it just a few minutes later. For Lowry, it all started by a terrific feed from Dustin Byfuglien, who circled the net and found him alone in the slot. No. 17 quickly corralled the pass, pulled back and popped a laser beam five-hole to give the Jets all the momentum. A pretty finish by Dano evened things up with 9:49 to play, after Tanev, and then Andrew Copp, did some gritty work in the trenches to first free the puck from the end wall, and then dish it out to the right hash marks, where Dano soon arrived. Despite outshooting the Capitals 10-4 in the first period, Winnipeg trailed 1-0 on a goal by Backstrom - his first of the year - with 5:21 to play. Backstrom capitalized on one of the few defensive miscues by the Jets, due in part to the unfavourable matchup with the Capitals’ top line. Ovechkin carried the puck across the blue line, pulled up just inside the left circle to evade of the check of Marko Dano and feathered a shot on goal. The rebound popped loose to Backstrom and after gathering it up at the side of the net, he hoisted a backhander over Hutchinson’s left pad. The home side doubled the lead early in the second after the Jets got caught chasing the puck deep in their own end. Andre Burakovsky won a battle behind the net and centered the puck out to T.J. Oshie, who made a nice move to the backhand before lobbing a shot over the sprawling efforts of the goaltender. The Capitals took it to the Jets from that point forward in the middle frame, firing 18 second-period shots and limiting the road team to only a handful at the other end. Ovechkin put the Caps up by a trey at 10:03, casually putting home a loose puck at the doorstep after an ill-conceived icing kept Julian Melchiori, Ben Chiarot and the rest out for an exhausting, minuteand-a-half-long shift.

DETROIT, Michigan - The Jets trailed three times, but fought back to tie it before taking their first lead when it mattered most. Brandon Tanev’s first two NHL goals to help the Jets take a 5-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings. Tanev tied the game at three with 7:36 to play before scoring the go-ahead goal on a breakaway with 1:16 left. Nikolaj Ehlers, who had a career-high four-point night, found the empty net at 19:54 to seal the victory. Patrik Laine had a goal an assist, and Mark Scheifele rounded out the scoring for Winnipeg. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 30 in the win. Head Coach Paul Maurice described it as one of the most enjoyable wins he’s ever been a part of. “I thought after eight minutes in the first period we played a heck of a game for an NHL team, then factor in the travel and seven guys out of your lineup and the youth of our group, that’s an enjoyable a win from a coach’s point of view… That’s as much fun as I’ve had behind the bench in a long time.” The Jets trailed after two periods, and then again late as Justin Abdelkader broke a 2-2 tie, but as the Jets have so many times this season, a third-period comeback was waiting in the wings. “The resiliency of this group is incredible,” Tanev said. “We saw it last night in Washington and again tonight. We don’t stop pushing, that’s the mentality of this group. We keep looking forward no matter the circumstances. “Everyone’s up, their heads are up, everyone’s talking and communicating well with each other. We know what we need to do the next 20 minutes to go and get the win.” Scheifele tied the game at 2:01, banging home a rebound after Laine worked his way in, burning defender before putting a shot into feet of the goaltender. Scheifele jammed it home at the doorstep to give him six on the year. The play was reviewed, as the puck disappeared under the body of Petr Mrazek, but logic kicked in and the initial no-goal call was rightfully overturned. Tanev tied it with his first - a beauty - that found the very top shelf, then buried it in almost the same spot as he raced in alone just a few minutes later. The Jets have no outscored the opposition 19-8 in the third period and overtime this season. Ehlers made a great pass to make Tanev’s first a reality. “It’s great. A guy like (Tanev), he’s been working his butt off every single game,” he said. “He was always joking around about when he was going to get his first one, so to see him get two today, the tying goal and the game-winner, it’s great.” It was a 1-1 game with the shots in the Wings’ favour, 15-8, after one period of play. Luke Glendening opened the scoring for the Red Wings at 3:04 of the first period, redirecting a Danny DeKeyser point shot past Hellebuyck after finding a lane in the high slot. Laine tied things up for the Jets with 4:31 left in the opening frame, as part of a six-oh run on the shot clock. No. 29 took a beautiful neutral-ice pass from Mark Scheifele and chipped the puck up and over a falling defender before cutting in on his off wing and firing a shot five-hole on Petr Mrazek. The Jets had good pressure to begin the second period, but Henrik Zetterberg put the Wings back in front near the midway mark. Hellebuyck kicked out the initial blast by Tomas Tatar, but Zetterberg crashed the net and showed great some great hand-eye, batting it out of midair for the go-ahead goal.. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

NEW YORK - Outside of a four-minute and four-second span late in the second period Sunday, the Winnipeg Jets were the better team. But it doesn’t take long for one of the NHL’s most offensively gifted teams to make you pay for your lack of attention. The New York Rangers did just that, breaking a 2-2 tie with goals on three consecutive shots to give them a 5-2 lead and, eventually, a win by that same margin at Madison Square Garden. The Jets outshot the Rangers 9-1 in the third period, but Henrik Lundqvist had a superb night between the pipes. Connor Hellebuyck, meanwhile, was pulled after allowing four goals on 16 shots. Michael Hutchinson came on in relief and stopped two of three in the final 21:18. Patrik Laine and Mark Scheifele scored Winnipeg’s two goals. The Jets will now head home with three of a possible six points on the road. “Unsatisfied (with that number) in that the quality of our game warranted more than three points,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “I’m not saying we deserved (more), I’m just saying that we’ve played well enough in our last four or five games to put together a nice run here. “But, given our schedule, given our injuries, that’s a hell of a job. We’ll take it.” The Jets were taking it to the Rangers in the early part of the second period before a lucky bounce put the home side back on top, for good. Dustin Byfuglien wiped out at the offensive blue line, giving the Rangers a 3-on-1 back the other way. Mats Zuccarello made no mistake, rifling a shot over Hellebuyck’s right shoulder. Scheifele got it right back, cleaning up the rebound after Nikolaj Ehlers and Paul Postma hooked up for a great chance off the rush, but the Rangers took a 3-2 lead soon after. J.T. Miller took the puck down the right side and fired a shot top shelf, beating Hellebuyck on the short side once again. The Rangers took their first two-goal lead of the night at 16:24 as Jesper Fast got a piece of Kevin Klein’s bullet from the right point, tipping it just past the extended right pad of the goaltender and the rout was on. That spelled the end of the night for Hellebuyck, who was victimized on three straight shots to before getting the hook. Hutchinson came on in relief, but that did little to quell the onslaught. The first shot he faced was a breakaway, as Pavel Buchnevich beat Alexander Burmistrov 1-on-1, crossed the goalmouth and chipped the puck over the sprawling netminder to put the Jets in a deep hole. Kevin Hayes opened the scoring for the Rangers on a delayed penalty, 2:13 into the first period. Hayes took a pass from Klein at the right point and hammered a one-timer past Hellebuyck on the blocker side, giving him six on the year and a team-leading 12 points. Laine tied things up with a tip in at 10:45 after Winnipeg’s top line hemmed the Blueshirts in their own end for almost a minute and a half. As Ben Chiarot pulled the puck off the boards and into a shooting position, Laine bowled his way to net and gave his defenceman a target from five feet out. “We had the puck offensively a lot and we had a lot of chances that we should have scored on,” Ehlers said. “I, myself, had three breakaways that I could have put in. It was a tough game, but it could have gone either way.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

STARS JETS

WINNIPEG - The second three-goal game in 18-year-old Patrik Laine’s young career fuelled the Winnipeg Jets to blowout win Tuesday, 8-2 over the division rival Dallas Stars at MTS Centre. Three of the Jets’ eight goals came on the power play, snapping an 0-for-17 drought with the man-advantage. Laine also drew an assist for a career-high four-point game, while five others had multi-point efforts, including Mark Scheifele’s two-goal, two-assist outing to put him atop the NHL leaderboard in overall points (18) this season. Connor Hellebuyck made 28 saves in the victory. “It was unbelievable to score three goals again,” Laine said. “I’m proud of myself and I’m proud of our team. We played a really good game today. “Scoring eight goals. That doesn’t happen every day. It was a special win.” The Jets entered the night having been outscored 24-5 in second periods this season. Suffice to say that formerly large deficit has been tidied up nicely. “Our risk assessment in the second period was really good,” Head Coach Paul Maurice said. “We did some good things in the offensive zone, drew some penalties, and created some chances from there.” After the Stars cut the deficit to one with a power-play goal just a minute-and-a-half into the second period (rookie Devin Shore made a nice play, curling off the right wall and getting the puck in front to Patrick Eaves, who tipped it under the arm of Hellebuyck), the Jets got right back with a PPG of their own, and it was you-know-who doing what he does best. Blake Wheeler made a great pass across to goalmouth, giving Laine two cracks at it in front. The first one glanced off the post, but he stayed with it and buried on the second try, restoring the two-goal lead the Jets had built up in the first. Laine completed the hat trick with one of the prettiest of his young career, effortlessly converting on a 2-on-1 with Scheifele, one timing a shot off his natural side up and over sprawling efforts of the goalie to give the Jets a 4-1 lead. And the Jets weren’t done. Nic Petan juked his way into the slot, fired a quick shot into the pads and Marko Dano was there to jam home the rebound, giving Winnipeg a 5-1 lead at 17:09 before Scheifele’s second of the night - a power-play marker - made it a 6-1 game. Petan and Laine picked up the A’s on Scheifele’s goal, extending their multi-point nights. The shots were 17-1 Jets after the Stars’ goal early in the period. Andrew Copp (shorthanded) and Adam Lowry scored in the third for the Jets, while Tyler Seguin had a power-play goal for Dallas. Scheifele opened the scoring for the Jets at 3:06 of the first period, after the Stars recorded the first four shots of the game. On a 3-on-1 with Nikolaj Ehlers and Patrik Laine, Scheifele took a feed from No. 27 on the near side and easily converted in tight, with Dallas defender Dan Hamhuis crashing into the goaltender. Laine put the Jets up by a pair at 8:46, tipping in a Ben Chiarot point shot for the second time in as many games. Paul Postma drew the second assist after Ehlers made a smart play at the line, allowing Chiarot to tee it up from the left point. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

GLENDALE, Arizona - Pro athletes will try just about anything to snap out of a skid. Cold showers, new gear, dousing your stick in a cold quart of Irish whisky, as TSN play-by-play man Dennis Beyak once heard… You know, the usual. For Winnipeg Jets captain Blake Wheeler, who had gone 13 games without a goal after scoring in each of the first three to start the season, the voodoo method seems to have done the trick. Wheeler tried a variety of different sticks at the game-day skate, including Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine’s red-hot Bauer brands, and the early signs were positive. He was ripping goals like a young…well, Blake Wheeler. Wheeler gave the Jets a 2-1 lead with a goal midway through the second period with a goal that would have stood as the game winner if it weren’t for Tobias Rieder’s late tally, but was equally important, helping the visitors to a 3-2 win. Andrew Copp and Nikolaj Ehlers had the others for Winnipeg, while Connor Hellebuyck - who was absolutely terrific - stopped 23 in his fourth straight start. Ehlers gave the Jets a 3-1 lead with just over three minutes to play, jumping on a loose puck in the slot after Coyotes defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson made an ill-advised pass up at the middle, that deflected off the stick of the pressuring Laine. “We didn’t really have our best game and we found a way to win,” Wheeler said. “There’s going to be nights like that, where you just don’t really have it, but you have a lead and figure out how to scratch and claw out two points, so that’s a good sign” Wheeler broke a 1-1 tie 10:18 of the middle frame after the road squad survived a “casual” first period. Nic Petan showed great vision on his off wing, buying time along half wall before dishing back to the captain at the top of the circle. Wheeler pulled back into a shooting lane and ripped a one-timer top shelf on Louis Domingue, giving him his first goal since Oct. 17. Shots favoured the Coyotes 8-3 after one period of play. “I thought the first 15 minutes of the second period and our third were good, with our third being our best,” Head Coach Paul Maurice said. “We struggled with maybe coming off an eight-goal night and thought we were going to do this a bit differently, but it’s a good sign when you can make the necessary adjustments in your game, build on it throughout the night and play your best in a 2-1 lead game.” Copp drew first blood for the Jets at 4:49, keeping the puck on a 2-on-1 with Brandon Tanev and firing a shot under the arm of Arizona goalie Louis Domingue. Mark Scheifele did some great work at the blue line, fighting off the physical Luke Schenn before finding Copp in full flight. With the assist, Scheifele now has an NHL-best 19 points (9G, 10A) in just 15 games. Radim Vrbata tied things up near the midway mark of the period, unloading a bomb from the right circle that beat Hellebuyck clean on the far side after Manitoba native Jordan Martinook won a battle down low. It the only shot that beat Hellebuyck in more than 59 minutes of game play. The goalie was otherwise outstanding, making several key stops late in the third - including a breakaway by Rieder, and a great chance for Anthony Duclair in tight - to preserve the victory. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

JETS AVALANCHE

DENVER, Colorado - Blake Wheeler had these words of solace for his downtrodden teammate, Nikolaj Ehlers. “Things happen, man. “You wipe your hands of that one, take a shower and go home.” Really, that’s about all you can do. In the end, it will go down as a point earned for the Winnipeg Jets. How the other was lost - in heartbreaking fashion, no less - does not discount an otherwise good game for both the team and second-year forward. Tough break. Things happen. Move on. Ehlers accidentally shot the puck into his own net at 1:23 of overtime Friday to give the rested Colorado Avalanche a 3-2 win. The Dane tried to find Toby Enstrom with a pass in his own end, but the feed was off target, eluding goaltender Michael Hutchinson fivehole for the winning marker. Ehlers, who assisted on both Jets goals to extend his career-high point streak to five straight games, could only shake his head, miffed at how it all played out. “I thought I had two guys right by me. I just tried to throw it in the middle and get those two guys going (up the ice),” he said. Rene Bourque, who scored earlier in the game as well, was credited with the goal, as he was the last player to touch the puck, ironically in a battle with Ehlers that he lost along the half wall. Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele scored for the Jets in regulation, while Hutchinson made 25 saves in a losing cause. Ehlers, by the way, now has 10 points (2G, 8A) in his last five. Wheeler got things rolling with his fifth of the season at 13:27, firing a shot just under the farm of Colorado goalie Semyon Varlamov, after a Carl Soderberg turnover created a 2-on-1 from the top of the circles on in. Wheeler, who went 13 straight without one, now has goals in backto-back games. Scheifele’s power-play goal tied it up at 15:59, as he finished off a pretty, three-way passing play with Wheeler and Ehlers. Taking the pass in front, Scheifele made no mistake, bombing a shot far side, just under the bar. The goal was Scheifele’s 10th of the campaign, giving him an NHL-best 20 points in only 16 games this season. Mikko Rantanen’s first NHL goal opened the scoring for the Avalanche at 1:03 of the second period. With Mark Scheifele in the penalty box, Rantanen gathered a pass from Erik Johnson near the bottom of the right circle and fired beautiful shot short side, beating the goalie up under the bar. Bourque drove hard to the net and put the Avalanche up by a pair at 9:35. The play began off the rush, with Tyson Barrie accepting a drop pass at the blue line before finding Bourque with a gorgeous feed at the doorstep. “It was tough to give one up on the penalty kill. That kind of slowed our momentum,” Wheeler said. “From there we rallied pretty well and got ourselves back in the game. It was good to bear down and get a point.” It was a 0-0 game with the shots in Colorado’s favour, 9-7, after one period of play. Laine rang a shot off the crossbar less than three minutes into the contest after getting a nice pass from Alexander Burmistrov, but that early opportunity stood as the period’s best, and perhaps only, Grade A scoring chance. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Mark Scheifele scored the shootout winner, while Adam Lowry and Marko Dano each had goals in regulation, powering the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings at MTS Centre. Patrik Laine also scored in the shootout - his first-career attempt while Connor Hellebuyck stopped two of three to give Winnipeg the win. Hellebuyck made 27 saves, including 17 in the final 25 minutes, to record his sixth win of the campaign. In the shootout, Laine made a beautiful move, surprising everyone by electing not to shoot, and instead pulling off a magnificent deke, going backhand-forehand before stuffing it five-hole on LA goalie Peter Budaj. Lowry added an assist, while Toby Enstrom had a pair of helpers to round out the numbers offensively. The Jets now have points in four straight are back above .500 at 8-7-2 on the year. “We’ve identified our game,” captain Blake Wheeler said. “We know what it looks like when we’re playing the way we’re supposed to play and I don’t want to say it’s easy to play that way every night - but it’s easier when everyone buys into it. It really feels like we’ve got every guy in here playing the same way. … It makes it a lot of fun to play.” The Jets, who were playing their third game in three-and-a-half days, led 2-1 after 40 minutes, but LA defenceman Tom Gilbert tied the game at two with his first of the year at 12:58 of the third. With the Kings outshooting the Jets 13-5 at this point in the final frame, Gilbert took a nice pass from Jordan Nolan and buried a shot from the high slot, beating a screened Hellebuyck clean past the glove. “We were maybe a little conservative to start the third,” Wheeler said. “Up 2-1, we’ve played a ton of hockey recently and our batteries aren’t at 100 percent by any means. We were just trying to hold onto that lead a little bit.” The Jets were outshot 15-8 in the third, and 2-0 in overtime, thanks in large part to a pair of penalties that put them down a man for more than three minutes. But the Jets didn’t wilt. With the Kings leading 1-0 on a Tanner Pearson goal midway through the opening frame, the tide turned when LA forward Kyle Clifford was given a five-minute major for boarding Winnipeg rookie Kyle Connor. Connor, who was chasing a loose puck deep in his own end, looked up, slowed down and prepared for the hit, but was needlessly driven head first into the end boards. Connor stayed down for several minutes before getting up under his own power. Cashing two on the ensuing power play, the Jets took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission. Lowry levelled the score with his fourth of the campaign at 14:05. Nic Petan made a great play on a 3-on-2, driving a low shot into the pads of Budaj and forcing a rebound out between the hash marks. Lowry, crashing the net, made no mistake, plunging a shot into the open side for the equalizer. Dano tied things up with just five seconds left in the penalty, finishing off a great pass from Toby Enstrom, who found him alone at the doorstep after getting the puck from Lowry at the top of the right circle. Pearson opened the scoring for the Kings at 5:38, after the Jets recorded four of the first five shots of the game. Pearson, who entered the day tied for the team lead in goals (5), took a pass off the rush and sent a fluttering shot from the top of the circle past Hellebuyck. The puck may have changed direction off the stick of Dustin Byfuglien, causing Hellebuyck to wave it and miss with the glove. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

BLACKHAWKS JETS

WINNIPEG - There’s a ‘character game,’ and then there’s the ultimate statement, like the one delivered Tuesday in downtown Winnipeg. Josh Morrissey, Chris Thorburn, Patrik Laine and Nic Petan supplied the offence, while Connor Hellebuyck made 27 saves to backstop the Jets to a 4-0 shutout victory over the division rival Chicago Blackhawks, emphatically ending their opponent’s 11-game point streak. Morrissey’s goal was his first in the NHL, while Thorburn and Petan each got their first of the year. Laine, meanwhile, extended his league-lead in goals with his 12th of the campaign. The Jets have now collected points in five straight games (4-0-1) and are sitting pretty at the second in the Central Division with games against the Flyers, Bruins, Hurricanes, Wild and Predators all upcoming over the next nine days away from Winnipeg. Leading 1-0, Winnipeg scored three goals in a little more than four minutes - including a pair just 11 seconds apart - early in the third to blow this one wide open. Thorburn struck first, putting the Jets up by two with a strange one at 4:41, turning and firing off the right wall and beating Crawford high over the left shoulder after getting a nice pass from Paul Postma. “I’ve been practicing that shot for a while now,” Thorburn joked. Laine gave the Jets a 3-0 lead at 8:32, chopping home a loose puck after Dustin Byfuglien took the puck wide and pulled off a sweet, one-handed wraparound, allowing his Finnish ‘mate to jump in and get a crack at it. Petan rounded out the scoring at 8:43, working his way to the blue paint before getting a lovely no-look, behind-the-back feed from former Hawk Marko Dano, and rifling it home for his first of the year. Morrissey opened the scoring for the Jets at 6:25 of the first period. Nikolaj Ehlers made a great pass off the rush to Mark Scheifele, who then found the defenceman fishing at the top of the circles. With a clear lane to the net, the rookie made no mistake, drilling a one-timer for the first of his career, just 18 games in. Corey Crawford got a piece of it, but not enough as it squeezed under his arm and into the back of the net. Morrissey joins Patrik Laine, Kyle Connor and Brandon Tanev as the four Jets rookies to have scored their first goal so far this year. “It’s something you dream about your whole life. It’s pretty special,” Morrissey said of the goal, adding that it hasn’t fully sunk in yet. Back-to-back penalties to Paul Postma and Ben Chiarot gave the Blackhawks a 1:07 long 5-on-3 early in the middle frame. Hellebuyck was forced to come up with a number of big saves, but that, combined with the exceptional penalty-killing efforts of Byfuglien and Blake Wheeler, helped the Jets keep in the lead. Hellebuyck described it as the “perfect game.” “What’s not perfect about it? Four goals, a shutout - I liked it. The capacity crowd gave their team a standing ovation when the penalties came to an end, and it was at this point when you felt the Jets just couldn’t lose. Shots on goal favoured the Hawks - who had three second-period power plays - 20-13 after 40 minutes of play. The Jets took over in the third, scoring three and outshooting the Hawks 11-7. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

Dustin Byfuglien and Blake Wheeler scored for the Jets, who had points in five straight (4-0-1) coming in. Connor Hellebuyck made 18 saves in a losing effort. With Winnipeg trailing 3-2 entering third period, Simmonds put this one out of reach with his ninth of the year, 5:46 in. Simmonds won a battle with Toby Enstrom in front of the net, retrieving a loose puck after a blocked point shot. The winger spun off the check attempt and easily put the pill past Hellebuyck for the insurance marker in an otherwise close contest. Shots favoured the Jets 9-5, but two quick goals had the home side up by a pair after one period of play, but the Jets battled back, cutting the deficit to one through two. Byfuglien’s first of the year pulled the Jets within one early in a heavily tilted middle frame. A stick-less Wheeler carried the puck up the right side, crossed the blue and kicked it up to Nic Petan, who then made a silky smooth, cross-ice feed to the big man, who fired it home at 6:57. Petan now has a goal and six points since being recalled from the Manitoba Moose on Nov. 4, while Byfuglien snapped a 19-game goalless drought. “It’s one of those things that every player loves to do,” Byfuglien said of his goal. “As a team we’ve been playing pretty good hockey and we’ve been doing the right things, getting our points. It wasn’t so bad to not score until now. Tonight we didn’t get the bounces, made a couple mistakes.” Streit restored the Flyers’ two-goal lead with a partially screened, 45-foot slapper at 12:58, but Wheeler got the Jets back in it with just 2:41 to play, finishing off a beautiful three-way passing play between himself, Scheifele and Nikolaj Ehlers - reunited after Maurice juggled the forward line combinations. The trio made short work of their first ride together, working the tictac-toe back and forth across the ice and eventually the goalmouth, leaving the Flyers helpless to defend. Couturier drew first blood with his fifth of the year at 9:13, roofing a shot past Hellebuyck after the initial puck carrier, fellow 2011 draftee Mark Scheifele, was tripped by Jake Voracek in the corner. Scheifele, who would have otherwise cleared the zone, took it up with the official on his way back to the bench, but was not given much of an explanation. Scheifele said post-game that the officials told him they didn’t see it. The Flyers opened up a 2-0 lead just 34 seconds later as Raffl went shelf on a 2-on-1-turned-breakway, the result of a stumble at the offensive blue line. The speedy Matt Read showed great hustle, diving for a loose puck along the far wall before feeding a blind backhand pass over to Raffl, who was driving the middle lane. The goals came on the Flyers’ first two shots of the game. “We didn’t play a full 60,” Byfuglien said. “We took a couple shifts off and got running around, chasing the puck a little bit and they scored on their opportunities. We’ve been pretty good at this throughout the year so far, so all we can do is go to the tape and learn from our mistakes.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

JETS BRUINS

BOSTON, Mass. - “We weren’t ready to play.” That was Blake Wheeler, Adam Lowry, Michael Hutchinson and Head Coach Paul Maurice’s combined, and rather succinct, evaluation of Saturday’s lopsided contest at TD Garden. The Bruins ran roughshod on the Jets all night, outshooting the visitors 38-12 and in the process, using second-period goals by Matt Beleskey, Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron to help them to a 4-1 win. Tim Schaller scored the other for the Bruins early in the third and Adam Lowry found the net late for the Jets. “There isn’t a piece of that game we were good at,” Maurice said. “If we have to sit here today and get a silver lining, if you’re going to be bad, you might as well be bad in all parts so that you have a hope you can write that one off. “We weren’t ready to play - (both) the game of hockey and we weren’t ready to play the Boston Bruins’ style of game, knowing what they were going to do and how they were going to play. “I’m not reading them the riot act. I’ve got to get my act together and get them ready to play (tomorrow).” Beleskey opened the scoring for the Bruins at 2:01 of the second period. Joe Morrow won a battle in the corner and centered the puck out front to the former Duck, who made no mistake from the near hash, cracking a one-timer over Hutchinson’s right shoulder. The Bruins had the first five shots of the period before a penalty settled the pace. The Jets were unable to score on the ensuing power play (Rask may have played a part in that, robbing Wheeler on the doorstep), but afterward, for the first time all night, they had their opponent pinned in their own end for consecutive shifts. But that little bit of pressure did little to quell to the Bruins’ appetite. Marchand put them up by two with a pretty goal - his team-leading 17th point of the campaign - at 11:37. Taking a bank pass down the near side, Marchand sped past the defence, cut to the net and buried a backhander after almost losing the handle in tight. Bergeron rounded out the scoring in the middle frame at the tail end of a 5-on-3, launching a one-timer from the top of the near circle short side on Hutchinson to put the Bruins ahead three-nil. The Jets went the final 13:48 of the second period without getting a shot on goal. Overall, they had only seven after 40 minutes of play. The Bruins took a 4-0 lead at 1:41 of the third as Schaller snuck behind the defence and fired a shot top shelf on Hutchinson to score his third of the year. The Jets got their first shot of the period six-and-a-half minutes in more than a full period (20:18) since their last attempt on goal. The Jets were sluggish out of the gate, as they were all night, conceding 14 shots and turning the puck over five times in a panicky opening period dominated by the Bruins. Back-to-back penalties to Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien gave the Bruins a 34-second 5-on-3 midway through the period. The Bruins had considerable offensive-zone time, recording five shots on the extended power play, but the Jets came up with a mammoth effort on the penalty kill to keep the game scoreless. That was the lone positive in an otherwise forgettable evening. “We’ve got to figure out what we didn’t do right tonight,” Wheeler said. “Our preparation has been good all year. That’s the great thing about this league is that we’ve got another chance at it tomorrow.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

JETS HURRICANES

RALEIGH, N.C. - After playing their 17th game in the past 29 days, the Winnipeg Jets will finally get a reprieve. And it couldn’t have come at a better time. The drowsy Jets, playing their third of a season-long five-game road trip, gave what they had but it wasn’t enough, as they dropped a 3-1 decision to the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena. “That team played 17 games in 29 days and has been all over God’s green earth,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “ They’re beat up, they’re sore, they’re tired and they gave what they had. Trailing by two in the third period, Mark Scheifele pulled the Jets within one off a great feed from Nikolaj Ehlers at 9:31 of the third, but that was as close as the Jets would come, as Noah Hanifin’s power-play marker with 1:43 to play restored the ‘Canes two-goal lead. Connor Hellebuyck was excellent, stopping 37 shots in the loss. “We wanted to come out here and play like men tonight,” captain Blake Wheeler said. “The circumstances really weren’t working in our favour, especially with how we played last night, but overall what we could control I thought we did a good job of. I thought we battled pretty hard tonight. Elias Lindholm opened the scoring for the Hurricanes with his first of the year, 6:45 into the game. Lindholm maneuvered his way through traffic before bringing the puck to the front of the net and firing a shot past Hellebuyck. Less than 24 hours after citing “preparation,” or lack thereof, in a 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins, the Jets were on their heels out of the gates, recording just two of the first 11 shots of the contest. Overall, the Hurricanes outshot the Jets 18-11 in a one-sided opening frame. Hellebuyck kept his team in it with a number of key stops off redirections in tight. Hellebuyck came up with another big save midway through the second period after Andrew Copp sought retribution for a big hit on Toby Enstrom, but the instigator - Brock McGinn - didn’t bite. On the ensuing Carolina power play, Hellebuyck made dazzling glove save, point blank, on Jordan Staal to keep the Jets within one. Moments later on the very same power play, Mark Stuart - who returned after missing 11 games with a lower-body injury - made a goal-saving shot block on the opposite side before freezing it near the goalmouth. The physical play ramped up late in the middle frame, but the visitors took it a step too far. Scheifele and Dustin Byfuglien were tagged on the same play in the offensive zone at 19:39, but after that power play was killed off early in the third, Stuart put the Jets back on the PK with a cross check on Staal. That ornery behaviour was a staple in Scheifele’s game all night, as he was credited with a team-high six hits in 22:54 of ice time. “It wasn’t the result we wanted but we worked hard tonight,” he said. “It’s tough to come back after a loss like that and play a five o’clock game, but we battled for each other.” Victor Rask put this one away with a PPG at 2:39, roofing a shot past Hellebuyck after getting a pass from former Jet Lee Stempniak in the deep slot. “I thought for the most part we gave ourselves an opportunity,” Wheeler said. “Walking into this game, it’s probably the one you circle as being the most difficult. … We battled.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

JETS WILD

ST. PAUL, Minnesota - It truly is a game of inches. Trailing 1-0 midway through the third period, Winnipeg Jets captain Blake Wheeler appeared the tie the game with a beautiful redirect at the doorstep, but a challenge initiated by Minnesota’s Bruce Boudreau confirmed the play was offside upon the entering the zone about 10 seconds earlier. Still, the Jets had 10:06 left to manufacture the equalizer, but a fortuitous power-play goal by Wild defenceman Jonas Brodin put the Wild up by two shortly thereafter, all but killing Winnipeg’s chances of coming back. Brodin’s blast from the right point went off the stick of Brandon Tanev, bounced high in the air but stayed on course and trickled past Connor Hellebuyck for the eventual winning goal. “We were about an inch shy on just about everything tonight,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “It was a hard-fought game. There were only moments of real open play. Both teams were competing hard on pucks and it was hard to get them to the net, (so) the margin for error there was real small.” Wheeler pulled the Jets within one with a PPG of his own less than a minute later, but it wasn’t enough. Patrik Laine had a chance with under a minute to play to blast one home on the one-timer, but his twig failed him, snapping in two and giving Zach Parise the empty-net goal to seal a 3-1 win for the home side. Mikko Koivu scored the other for the Wild, while Devan Dubnyk made 15 saves in the victory. The Jets, who have now lost four straight games, did some good things, mind you. They went from a banged-up group licking their wounds following Sunday’s loss in Carolina to one that, at times, dictating the play against a heavy and highly skilled division rival. They just couldn’t close it out. “We were back on the right track today,” Maurice said. “There were some good things, and there’s some room for improvement. But you know what? It’s going to look like that for us. We’ve got to get prepared to play those kinds of games and get comfortable in them.” The Wild outshot the Jets 8-4 and took a 1-0 lead on the scoreboard with 58.7 seconds left in the middle period. Jason Zucker did some nice work behind the net and centered the puck out front to Koivu, who buried it for his third of the season after eluding a check in the deep slot. “Two bad bounces,” Hellebuyck said. “I don’t think we really gave them much. I thought all around we played a pretty good game, but they just got the better bounces. “The only thing we can do is get back at it and keep grinding for those points. It’s still early, but I think we need to go on a nice streak here.” The teams traded power-play chances in the period. Nikolaj Ehlers nearly opened the scoring for the Jets on theirs, but his wrister from the far wall kissed iron. Minnesota had nine shots for a two-period total of 16, leading the Jets by five in that department after 40 minutes. The shots were even at seven apiece after one. The Jets had some jump and were the better team early on, but Dubnyk - as he has been so often this year, and all night - was the difference. Josh Morrissey had a great chance off a sweet feed from Wheeler midway through the period, but Dubnyk made a marvellous glove and left-pad combo to save to keep the game scoreless. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

JETS PREDATORS

NASHVILLE, TN - The Winnipeg Jets are coming home empty-handed after a season-long road trip came to an end Friday with a fifth straight loss. Colin Wilson and Ryan Johansen had two goals each, while James Neal added the other in a 5-1 Predators win, dropping the Jets’ record 9-12-2 on the year. Mike Fisher recorded three assists. Dustin Byfuglien scored the Jets’ only goal, while Connor Hellebuyck made 25 saves in the loss. “When you’re in the midst of a four-game losing streak you look to your leaders to pull you out of it, and that wasn’t the game we needed from us,” Jets captain Blake Wheeler said. Wheeler, along with Mark Scheifele, did not play after a penalty just 34 seconds into the third period. With the Jets leading 1-0 after the first period, two quick goals by the home side early in the second got the ball rolling in a lopsided final 40 minutes. Wilson tied things up at 5:39 as he buried feed from Fisher, who showed great vision through traffic, scooping up a lose puck along the right wall and spotting his linemate lurking at the side of the net. It snowballed from there. “We’re just going to have to play fairly close to perfect mentally (moving forward),” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “That first goal, we had two guys behind the net. We don’t have that margin for error right now. This is a great time for our team to really hang on to the basics and the foundation of the game and work toward that. Simple, fast hockey without trying to do too much. It’s a great learning experience.” The Predators took their first lead of the night just 1:08 later, as Ryan Johansen sent a bullet past Hellebuyck on the power play. With Nikolaj Ehlers in the box, Byfuglien fanned on a clearing attempt, turning the puck over to Fisher, who then Johansen for the one-timer at the top of the left circle. Things got worse for the Jets at 12:56 as Brandon Tanev was assessed a five-minute penalty for boarding Colton Scissons. The Jets were having one of their best penalty kills of the year until a unlucky bounce with just two seconds left in the major gave the Predators a commanding 3-1 lead. James Neal took the shot, and after a series of pinball-like bobbles in tight, the puck somehow found its way past Hellebuyck. The Preds outshot the Jets 15-9 in a one-sided middle frame. Scheifele took a slashing penalty just 34 seconds into the third and the Preds made him pay for it, as Wilson scored his second of the night to make it 4-1 at 2:13. Nashville added to its lead at 8:15 as Johansen fired a shot past Hellebuyck to rub salt into wound of the already banged-up Jets. Byfuglien opened the scoring for the Jets at 14:53 of the first period as he took a shot from the right point that had eyes after hitting a body en route. The puck popped high in the air, arching over the traffic in front before landing behind the fallen Pekka Rinne, who was taken out by a teammate moments earlier. “The good news is we have a lot of spirit in our room,” Wheeler said. “We have a great locker room, really close locker room and you’ve seen no quit in us so far this year. … I’m optimistic that our group can rebound here. It’s just that when things start snowballing, it’s tough to reverse course. We have our game in neutral right now and we’ve got to kick it into overdrive.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

PREDATORS JETS

WINNIPEG - Home, sweet home. Connor Hellebuyck made 42 saves as the Winnipeg Jets ended a fivegame losing streak with a 3-0 win over the division rival Nashville Predators at MTS Centre. Drew Stafford, Mark Scheifele and Adam Lowry scored for the Jets, who improved to 10-12-2 with the win. Stafford scored his first year of the year to break a scoreless tie late in the second period, while Scheifele and Lowry both found the empty net in the final minute of the game. The Jets opened the scoring with only 4:39 left in the second period. Stafford went to the net, gathered up the rebound from a Trouba shot, took it around to the opposite side Trouba, who was quite possibly the best player on the ice, was involved at both ends all afternoon, driving the bus offensively and dishing out some big hits, like his late-third period smash on Mike Ribiero. “He’s built on (his game) right from the start,” Maurice said. “He’s always played his best hockey in the heavier games. The bigger grind, the teams that drive the net harder, that’s where he excels. … The amount of time that he missed is so difficult to recapture in your play. The benefit is that it wasn’t an injury that kept him out. He’s quite a bit ahead of where I expected him to be and has handled the minutes well. He can be such an impactful defenceman. He’s such a strong man physically and as he gets more and more into his rhythm, we’re going to really enjoy his play this year.” Trouba led the team with more than 27 minutes of ice time, recording his first points of the year with an assist on two of the Jets’ three goals, and a team-high four shots. The Jets outshot the Predators 12-9 in the middle frame, but the visitors had a late push, pouring five shots on Hellebuyck in the final few minutes. The home team held on, however, taking a lead into the third period for only the seventh time this year. The Jets were on their heels in the early part of the third, surrendering the first eight shots before a double minor to Mark Stuart (high sticking) truly put the game on the line. The Preds were all over the Jets on the power play, but Hellebuyck was absolutely sensational, putting a stamp on an altogether impeccable effort. In all, the Predators had 20 third-period shots, including 12 on six minutes of power play time. Hellebuyck was the busier of the two netminders early on and all night, stopping 11 shots, as opposed to the four faced by Predators goalie Juuse Saros. Nashville defenceman Roman Josi had the best chance of the period midway through when he split the D and made a great move to break in alone, but Hellebuyck sprawled out and made a terrific pad save with his right leg flat on the ice. “I don’t think anyone was hitting the panic button,” Hellebuyck said. “We just needed to get back to our game and that’s what we did tonight. Now that we know how we need to play to win I think we can continue moving forward and continuing to get better here.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

DEVILS JETS

WINNIPEG - Mark Scheifele, Blake Wheeler, Patrik Laine supplied the offence, while Connor Hellebuyck made 23 saves to help the Jets knock off the Devils 3-2 at MTS Centre. Hellebuyck, who has now won each of his last five home starts, had his impressive home shutout streak snapped at 174 minutes and 55 seconds, but in doing so set a new franchise record. With the Jets leading 2-0 to start the third period, the recently recalled Miles Wood scored his first NHL goal at 2:53 of the third, pulling the Devils within one. Wood, who was awarded a penalty shot earlier in the game, chased down a loose puck and snuck a shot through Hellebuyck’s pads from a tough angle, but the Jets got it right back. Laine took the puck down the right side and rifled a shot top shelf, putting him back into a tie with Scheifele for the team lead in goals with 13. “He could have had four tonight with the post and other near misses,” Maurice said of the 18-year-old, whose goal was his first in eight games. “Usually when guys are on the bench screaming ‘shoot!’ it’s a negative, but when he gets the puck, guys are telling him to shoot it from anywhere because it usually has a chance of going in. I like being able to free that line up a little bit and I thought they were good.” Added Scheifele, who dished off and then trailed the play up ice: “Great shot. I was pretty much right behind him and you pretty much can’t see it. … He’s a pretty lethal scorer and you see that shot pretty much every night. He could have had a few tonight.” The Devils made it a one-goal game once again at 7:58 as Nick Lappin drove the net and put the home the rebound from a Damon Severson slap shot, but that was as close as they would. Scheifele opened the scoring at 11:19 after Nikolaj Ehlers made a series of terrific solo efforts to eventually get the puck on goal. Dustin Byfuglien got the first crack at the rebound before Scheifele buried it, giving him 13 on the year. Winnipeg added to its lead within minutes, as Wheeler dug deep in the trenches, fighting his way through traffic before jumping on a loose puck at the side of the net and roofing it over the sprawling efforts of the goaltender. Andrew Copp and Jacob Trouba picked up the assists. The goals came just 2:01 apart as the Jets poured it on, outshooting the Devils 16-6 in the middle frame. Bryan Little, who was playing his first game back after missing 23 games with a lower-body injury, was another one of the Jets’ top runners up front. He had at least three quality chances in the first, and finished with more than 20 minutes of ice time. “He was excellent. Better than I expected,” Wheeler said of his linemate. “That first shift, I kicked one to him in the D zone and he took off like he was a bat out of hell. He was flying tonight. It’s pretty exciting to have him back in the lineup, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg for us. At the other end, Hellebuyck wasn’t overly busy but he had to be sharp when called upon in a fast-paced opening 20, stopping all seven shots he faced, including a breakaway by Wood. Wood, a fourth-round pick in 2013, made a great move to break in alone after a pair of Winnipeg defenders bumped into each other at the blue line, but Hellebuyck kicked out the right pad to make a sensational save on the goal line. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

OILERS JETS

WINNIPEG - The Oilers, led by Mark Letestu and Leon Draisaitl’s greasy two-goal efforts, got three on the power play Thursday to help them sail past the Jets by a 6-3 margin. The Jets, who had a five-game home winning streak come to an end, had only one successful penalty kill. With the win, the Oilers improve to 8-1 this year when scoring at least one power-play marker. Patrik Laine scored twice for the Jets - both on the power play - while Connor Hellebuyck made 23 saves, but was pulled after the sixth Oilers goal. Michael Hutchinson finished the game, posting four saves. The Jets had a 2-1 lead after the first period, despite being outshot, and had the better of the play in the second as well, but the penalties proved costly. “We didn’t check hard enough and we weren’t physical by any means,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice, who blamed the Jets’ four stick fouls on “carelessness.” “Three (power play) goals are a function of the 5-on-5 game,” the coach added. “We didn’t defend hard or quick enough. Pucks at our net, we were late getting back to them and they were banging in rebounds” The Jets had 26 shot attempts in the middle frame - exactly double that of the Oilers. Down by two early in the third period, back-to-back tripping penalties (Kris Russell and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins) gave the Jets a 1:14-long 5-on-3. Laine made work of it, powering a Herculean-like one-timer off the bar and in to cut the Edmonton lead to one. Draisaitl and Benoit Pouliot scored 20 seconds apart midway through to ice a lopsided final. With the Jets on top entering the second period, the Oilers quickly tied the game before taking their first lead with their second and third power-play goals of the night, five minutes in. Draisaitl struck first, jumping on a loose puck in the blue paint and plunging it past Hellebuyck only 51 seconds in. Then, Letestu drove hard to the net and buried a feed from Milan Lucic to give the visitors a 3-2 lead at 5:06, punishing the Jets for yet another undisciplined penalty. After the Jets worked their way back into it with a couple of strong shifts in the offensive zone, the Oilers took a 4-2 lead on a fortuitous bounce at 11:43. Pat Maroon took the shot from a sharp angle, and after first hitting Paul Postma at the side of the net, the puck banked in off Hellebuyck as he contended with the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Zack Kassian in front. The Jets opened the scoring just 35 seconds in as Little, Blake Wheeler and Drew Stafford went head-to-head with Connor McDavid off the opening faceoff. With the Oilers on their heels in their end own, Wheeler found Little wide open out front, and No. 18 made no mistake, firing a shot high over Cam Talbot for his first of the year. Letestu replied with a power-play goal for the Oilers at 2:31, tying the game at one. Leon Draisaitl made a great slap pass to the high slot, where Letestu made contact, sending it high over the glove for his third of the year. A blistering shot by Laine put the Jets went back in front on their first power play of the game at 10:14. Toby Enstrom put the puck on a tee and Laine, with a clear lane from well out at the left point, drove it clean past Talbot. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

ST. LOUIS, MO - Little and Laine had a goal and an assist each, including a beautiful connection only 17 seconds into overtime, to lift the Jets to a gritty 3-2 win over the division rival St. Louis Blues. “We haven’t had anybody in the lineup long enough to find that chemistry, but that line … There was something there,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “It’s not just the offence because Bryan has placed in that shutdown role for so long. I liked that line.” In overtime, Laine - streaking down his off wing - made a sensational backhand saucer pass over to Little, who easily put it into the empty net to give Winnipeg the victory. “I thought we didn’t have the puck as much we would have liked, but when we did have it, we were creating chances and we took advantage of that,” Little said. “I was just trying to find (Laine) in good spots as much as I could and let him use his shot. … That’s part of his game. He’s got such a good shot and people are going to respect it. His passing game is very underrated, too. All I had to do was put it in an empty net there.” That, after hooking up earlier in the game in reversed roles as Laine fired home a nifty Little pass to tie the game 2-2 midway through the second period. “It was a heck of a play Bryan made to Patrik and - he knows what he’s doing with the puck, that man,” Maurice said. The Jets were without their leading scorer, Mark Scheifele, who was a late scratch with a lower-body injury. But everyone stepped up and played one of their best games of the year. Impressive. “We dug our heels in and did what we had to do. That was the recipe tonight,” said Blake Wheeler, who had an assist on Chris Thorburn’s shorthanded goal early in the first period. “We had to. One of the best centremen in the league and a huge part of what we do. We miss him in all phases of the game. Everyone had to step up their game a little bit and batten down the hatches.” Michael Hutchinson made 20 saves in the victory. The Jets finish up this quick, two-game road trip tomorrow night in Chicago against the Blackhawks. The Jets came up with a gigantic penalty kill late in the game after Josh Morrissey was flagged for holding. That, along with three other successful PKs on the night, ensured the game made it overtime. Trailing 1-0 after the first period, the Blues tied the game and then took their first lead with two quick goals early in the middle frame. Alexander Steen brought the home side back on even terms at 5:16 with a slapper off the rush, beating Hutchinson under the arm from the top of the left circle. Then, just 2:09 later, as the Jets were hemmed in their own end, Dmitrij Jaskin turned and fired from the centre point, tucking it low inside the far post to give the Blues a 2-1 lead. The Jets replied less than two minutes later, as Laine pulled back into a tie for the league lead in goals with No. 16 on the year. Bryan Little made a terrific pass on a partial odd-man rush, and Laine - who started the play with a great dish at the defensive blue line - showed great hands on the return feed, taking it about six inches off the ice before rifling a shot over the glove of Blues goalie Carter Hutton. The goal came at 9:18, and was a mammoth response with more than 20,000 whipped into a frenzy. “It feels good,” said Laine, who has three goals in his last two games and once again has a share of the league lead with 16 on the year. “Now, finally, get the win as a team, so I’m really happy.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

Bryan Little scored the other for Winnipeg, while Artemi Panarin tallied Chicago’s lone marker. Panarin briefly tied the game with 6:54 to play (mere moments after Copp hit the crossbar on a 2-on-1 back the other way), but No. 9 put the Jets in front just 2:09 later with a wicked down from the right circle. “That’s the sign of a good team, responding quickly to some adversity like that,” Copp said. “It felt really good to respond in that manner. The first one was a heavy, heavy crossbar and then they came down and made a perfect play. Hellebuyck did the rest with a number of show-stoppers in the final few minutes after Jacob Trouba was given a double minor for high sticking. The Hawks poured it on, but the Jets - thanks in large part to some key saves and clutch blocks by Brandon Tanev and others held them off. “They were doing everything,” Hellebuyck said of his teammates, who sacrificed their bodies to help preserve the victory in the final minute. “They’re battling twice as hard and especially on a back-to-back, you could see that we really wanted it. … When guys are lying out to block a shot on the PK with two minutes left, you know they’ve really bought into the system and really want it. “It’s especially meaningful because we understand what it is what we did well, the mental approach to the game, the effort level, shift length and intensity of our shifts, and (we want) to bring that back (home) with us,” Maurice said. Little opened the scoring with a power-play goal with just 43 seconds left in the middle frame. After gaining the zone, Dustin Byfuglien made a great play at the right point, feathering a pass in front to a wide open Little, whose backhand tip found the back of the net. The Blackhawks looked like they were going to challenge it, as the Jets were close to going offside upon entry, but after a lengthy looksee, they elected not to. Little now has three goals in just four games after missing 23 with a lower-body injury. “Both hard-fought games and both really stressful, right to the end,” he said. “I thought we did a great job tonight. They obviously had stretches where they put pressure on us and had chances, but good teams are going to get those. I thought we did a great job being ready to play tonight. The Jets, who were badly outplaying their Central Division counterparts, had a 21-13 lead on the shot clock after two periods of play. If not for Chicago goalie Scott Darling, the Jets would definitely have already had a couple up on the board. A snake bit Nikolaj Ehlers had a great chance on a breakaway midway through the period, but was unable to convert after being sprung by Patrik Laine. Ehlers looked to the high glove side with a wrister in tight, but Darling got most of it before lunging back and bumping it off the goal line to keep the game in a scoreless tie. “We didn’t get frustrated in the game. We stayed real, real patient,” Maurice said. “We were conservative in the neutral zone but we felt we really pushed the game offensively. … I think their goalie had really good initial saves, but we didn’t get a lot of luck on the things that were laying off to the side, because we had a couple chances like that.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Patrik Laine and Dustin Byfuglien had a goal and an assist each to help the Jets build a 3-1 lead in the first period, but the Red Wings rallied, forcing overtime and eventually a shootout where Thomas Vanek and Henrik Zetterberg scored to give the visitors a 4-3 victory. Patrik Laine tallied Winnipeg’s lone marker in the shootout, while Andrew Copp scored the Jets’ first goal in regulation time. Connor Hellebuyck made 27 saves. Trailing by two after 20 minutes of play, Detroit tallied a pair in the back half of the middle frame tie things up at three heading into the third period. Anthony Mantha buried a slick centering feed from Dylan Larkin to cut the deficit to one at 10:59, after pivot helped force rare turnover by the normally sure-handed Toby Enstrom. Showing great speed, Larkin took it wide around a fallen defender, circled the net and found Mantha in front, and just like that, it was a one-goal game The Red Wings pulled even on Thomas Vanek’s fifth of the year with just 2:09 to play. Xavier Ouelett supplied a pass from the right point, and Vanek - uncovered at the doorstep - heeled it past Hellebuyck for the equalizer. The Jets have now been outscored 39-19 in the second period this year. The Jets had only three shots in the third period, and the first one didn’t come until the 14-minute mark. “In the third, it seemed like they were sitting back a little bit and letting us wind up in our end before trapping the neutral zone,” Copp said. “We didn’t get too many pucks behind their D and when we did, they were already back and were able to get to them quickly. I’m not sure if that’s us not generating enough to get through the neutral zone, or if that’s them trapping us. It definitely felt like everyone was in front of us.” Still, there was no shortage of effort. Ehlers, in particular, had a number of great chances to help the Jets win it late in the third period and overtime, but he was unable to solve the netminder with any of his six shots on goal. Copp opened the scoring for the Jets at 6:41 of the first period, but the Red Wings answered right back as Tomas Tatar buried a rebound at the side of the net just 24 seconds later. First, and with the Jets leading 6-0 on the shot clock, Marko Dano made a smart pass back to the point, where Ben Chiarot leaned into a 45-foot slapper. Copp gained position in front and got a piece of the D man’s long bomb, redirecting it past Petr Mrazek for the game’s early score. Byfuglien put the home side back in front at 11:21 as he took a feed from Laine on a 2-on-1 and fired it high over Mrazek’s right shoulder for his third of the year, and 100th as a member of the Jets. Then, less than two minutes later, the Finn took matters into his own hands, gathering a pass from Ehlers and rifling a shot from the top of the circle off a body and in. Laine’s pass on the Byfuglien goal was a thing of a beauty, saucing it just over the stick of Jonathan Ericsson and landing it flat in the big man’s wheelhouse. But that was all the offence the Jets were able to muster on this night. “We can get back to being quick, get a good night’s rest, come back feeling good,” Maurice said. “We had a handful of individuals that I thought struggled tonight, but we’ll be better next game.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

RANGERS JETS

WINNIPEG - It came down to the battles, and the Jets - as Head Coach Paul Maurice groused post-game - were on the losing end of them in critical situations for much of the night. Two power-play goals by the Rangers - including Kevin Hayes’ game-winner with just 1:09 to play in the third period - supplied the offence as the visitors took a 2-1 decision on Thursday at MTS Centre. The Jets, meanwhile, went 0-for-3 on the power play and struggled to even gain possession of the puck, let alone generate some offence. “The third power play, we lost every battle along the wall,” Maurice said. “You’re going to have to fight for some pucks and come up with some pucks, and then it’s got to move a hell of a lot quicker than it did.” Having picked up just one of a possible four points on this quick home stand, the Jets will now head back out on the road for a pair beginning on Saturday in Calgary, and finishing up the very next night in Edmonton. Mark Scheifele scored Winnipeg’s lone goal, while Michael Hutchinson made 22 saves in a losing effort. Drew Stafford took a high-sticking penalty with just 2:56 left in regulation to put the Blueshirts on their fourth power play of the night. Ryan McDonagh’s point shot was partially blocked in front, but the puck went to Hayes, who slapped it home at the side of the net. “I don’t know,” Stafford responded when asked if he thought it was a legitimate call, or a bit of a sell job. “I didn’t see. If I did (make contact), then I have to control my stick better. My initial reaction was that it was a bit of a sell, but … I’ve got to control my stick better. “It’s just too bad. It feels like two points were taken away from us. It’s unfortunate for the game to end like that. We’ll take what we can from here and get ready for a good road trip.” The Jets were heavily outplayed in the first period and had a one-goal deficit to show for it, but they came back and had a much better second, manufacturing the tying goal at 9:51 after outshooting the Rangers 5-1 in the front half of the stanza. Scheifele got the goal, scoring in his first game back after missing three with a lower-body injury. Rangers goalie Antti Raanta stopped the initial blast from Paul Postma at the centre point, but Scheifele - creating chaos in front - turned and fired home the rebound to make it a 1-1 game. Nikolaj Ehlers hit the post on a breakaway moments earlier, and Dustin Byfuglien did the same, but from the right-wing boards less than five minutes before that. “They’re really fast,” captain Blake Wheeler said. “If you give them time and space - kind of like Edmonton - they’re going to shred you. The Rangers opened the scoring with the first of two power-play markers, 8:01 in. With Scheifele in the box after being flagged for interference, Derek Stepan sent a backdoor pass over Chris Kreider, who easily jarred it with one foot in the blue paint. Shots on goal favoured the Rangers 10-6 after one. Andrew Copp had the Jets’ lone chance on a partial 2-on-1 shortly after the goal, catching the pipe with a wicked shot off the rush. He, along with linemate Brandon Tanev, were the two best forwards in the first period and were rewarded more ice time the rest of the way. “I put Copp and Tanev in the Top 9 and that was the difference,” Maurice said. “When you play against speed, you’ve got to skate. They skated, so we made that adjustment and got them out against their fastest line - and then we were a good team.” But for the second straight game, they couldn’t finish. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

CALGARY, AB - The Flames exploded for four goals less than 10 minutes apart in the second period before adding another two in the third to blow out the Jets 6-2 on Saturday at Scotiabank Saddledome. Dougie Hamilton scored twice, while Sam Bennett, Mikael Backlund, Lance Bouma and Sean Monahan chipped in with one goal apiece to lead the charge offensively. Nikolaj Ehlers broke the shutout with 6:01 to play in the third, snapping a 15-game goal drought with his fifth of the year - a power-play marker. Jacob Trouba scored with just a few tenths of a second left to rebound out the scoring. Michael Hutchinson, who looked sharp early on, suffered the loss with just 25 saves through two periods. Connor Hellebuyck came on relief to start the third. “We were behind the game the entire night,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice, whose post-game scrum lasted only 57 seconds. Winnipeg had a strong start to the middle frame, recording seven of the first nine shots overall, but it was all downhill from there. The Jets, who were a step or two behind for the final 13 minutes or so, were soon engulfed by the speed and transition of this confident Flames team, and it showed on the scoreboard. Hamilton opened the scoring at 8:29. The defenceman jumped up in the rush to become the trailer in a 3-on-2, and after getting a drop pass from Matthew Tkachuk and backing everyone in, he fired a shot top shelf to give Calgary the all-important first goal. Bennett put the Flames up by a pair at the 13-minute mark, finishing off a great feed from Johnny Gaudreau, who’s been on fire with seven points in four games after returning from injury . Bennett, the fourth Flame up on the rush, took a pass in the high slot and wired a wrister on the high glove side. The Flames took a 3-0 lead at 15:21 as Hamilton bombed a long shot right point through traffic after the Flames won the offensive-zone faceoff. Hutchinson never saw it. Backlund padded the lead with a power-play goal at 17:52, sneaking a shot short side after getting a pass Tkachuk at the bottom of the right circle. The Jets had only one shot in the final 12-and-a-half minutes of the period, while the Flames had eight - and all four goals - in that same span. “We didn’t play hard enough and we didn’t play smart,” Ehlers said. “We just weren’t good enough. That’s just something we’ve got to change.” Bouma chased down a loose puck split the defence and chopped a weak backhander short side on Hellebuyck to put Calgary up by five early in the third. After Ehlers broke the shutout at 13:59, Monahan restored the fivegoal lead at 16:28, until Trouba scored his first of the year at 19:59. Asked if he was relieved to score his first in 15 games, Ehlers deferred. “A little bit, but in a game like this, you don’t care about that goal.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

EDMONTON, AB - Mark Letestu scored twice in the third period to help turn a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 Oilers victory, but it was how, not why, the second one occurred that will sadly be talked about for some time following Sunday’s game at Rogers Place. Letestu tied the game with a power-play goal early in the period, and then, with 8:39 to play, he was beneficiary of something awful for one young man. Trying to clear the rebound from Letestu’s blast off the right wing, Patrik Laine fired the puck into his own net for the eventual game winner. “That’s a good question, I don’t know (what happened),” a stricken Laine said post-game. “I was just trying to get rid of the puck right away and it was just a bad position for me.” Blake Wheeler and others immediately comforted Laine on the bench, but that did little to quell the sting of the aftermath. “He’s 18 years old, he feels terrible,” Wheeler said. “These things happen. I’ve done it many times. It’s just a bad bounce. He’s done a hell of a job for us this year. You just hate to see a guy feel that way after a game.” Unfortunately, the Jets were unable to mount a comeback. Mathieu Perreault and Chris Thorburn scored the goals for Winnipeg, while Connor Hellebuyck made 28 saves in the Jets’ fourth straight loss. At the end of the day, after a strong first 40, the Jets weren’t at their best in the final frame, and that was ultimately their downfall. With Nikolaj Ehlers off serving a slashing penalty, Letestu buried a cross-ice feed from Connor McDavid after escaping a check down low to make it a 2-2 game at 2:28 of the third. The Jets had a good response, and for a while it appeared certain they would collect at least one point in this pivotal matchup, but it wasn’t to be. “You hate for a kid to have to answer those questions,” Wheeler said. “He’s a Top 5 goal scorer in the NHL as an 18-year-old. We choose to focus on those things.” Trailing 1-0 early in the second period, the Oilers tied the game when Oscar Klefbom buried a rebound at the near circle after Hellebuyck make the initial save on Tyler Pitlick, but the Jets regained the lead midway through after the fourth line went to work deep in enemy territory. Setting up at the edge of the circle, Thorburn took a pass from Marko Dano and bombed a one-timer off the far post and in, putting the Jets back in front. The Jets got their first power play of the game when rookie defenceman Dillon Simpson tripped up Jacob Trouba at 6:25, but it was the Oilers that got the better of the chances. Andrej Sekera found himself in alone after taking a feed from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins on a 2-on-1 following a Winnipeg giveaway, but Hellebuyck made a big stop on the D man’s backhand deke. The Jets outshot the Oilers 10-8 in the middle frame. Perreault drew first blood for the Jets at 14:49 of the opening period, snapping a 16-game goal drought that dates back to the Oct. 13 season opener. Jacob Trouba delivered a pass from the right point in front to Bryan Little, who tipped it off the near post, but Perreault swiped at the rebound, and on the second effort, he jammed it home. “That was better,” Perreault said of the effort in contrast to Saturday’s defeat. “We battled hard. Guys were getting tired but we battled the whole game.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Mathieu Perreault scored the shootout winner as the home side rallied from 2-1 and 3-2 deficits to beat the visiting the Florida Panthers 4-3. Dustin Byfuglien, Adam Lowry and Bryan Little scored in regulation, while Connor Hellebuyck made 41 saves, and another five in the six-round shootout. The Jets’ penalty kill - which entered the night tied for the 26th with a 77.6 percent success rate - almost cost them, surrendering all three of the Panthers’ goals. The power play, meanwhile, wasn’t much better, going 0-for-2 and generating little, if any, in the way of quality chances. “We just kind of gutted it out. It wasn’t pretty,” captain Blake Wheeler said. “After not playing for a few days we expected it to be a little sloppy and it definitely was through two periods, but we found a way and we luckily got the two points.” The Jets trailed 3-2 and were being outshot 36-19 after 40 minutes, but were the better team early on in the third, knotting the game at three just 2:36 in. During 4-on-4 play, Little was the beneficiary of a great feed from Blake Wheeler at the top of the circle, and No. 18 made no mistake, picking the puck up on his backhand before snapping it home for his fourth of the campaign. “If you look at the standings, we needed that urgency and we needed to get some points. To get the full two points tonight, it’s huge,” Perreault said. “We have three games left before Christmas so we’re looking forward to putting some good games together.” Byfuglien drew first blood for the Jets off a great feed from Patrik Laine with only 11 seconds left in the opening period. The big man started the play with a great outlet pass to Mathieu Perreault, whose work along the blue line allowed Laine to pick up a drop pass and find the D man streaking down the right side. Byfuglien made no mistake, firing it high over the sprawling Florida goalie, Roberto Luongo. Shots on goal favoured the Panthers 19-8, but after a number of tense moments around the Winnipeg net early in the game, the home side settled things down in the final five minutes. The Panthers tied the game and then took their first lead with backto-back power-play goals early in the second period, before the Jets replied with an even-strength marker to help stop the bleeding. But another PPG - Florida’s third in three tries - put them back on top, 3-2, at 11:58. Nick Bjugstad just threw the puck in front and got a sinister bounce in the blue paint as a pair of white sweaters crashed the net. Aleksander Barkov was credited with the goal. Then, at 8:35, Reilly Smith curled off the half wall and fired a shot through traffic, beating Hellebuyck high on the glove side. Lowry made it a 2-2 game as he hammered home a rebound less than two minutes later, but Enstrom’s third penalty led to the go-ahead goal once more. Vincent Trocheck - who had just one goal in his previous 19 games - drilled home a loose puck after Aaron Ekblad struck iron from the near point, restoring the Cats’ one-goal edge. Perreault and Bryan Little scored for the Jets in the shootout, while Trocheck had Florida’s lone tally. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Patrik Laine led the way with three points (1G, 2A), while Nikolaj Ehlers - the Jets’ most dangerous player offensively, all night scored twice in a 4-1 decision. Blake Wheeler scored the other, Mark Scheifele tallied two assists, and Connor Hellebuyck made 27 saves in the victory. Jarome Iginla broke the shutout with a power-play goal at 17:59 of the third period, but Colorado was otherwise neutralized by Winnipeg’s improved defensive play. Laine drew first blood for the Jets at 7:05 of the second period as he rifled a one-timer past Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard on a 2-on-1 with Scheifele. Scheifele, who took a bank pass out of his own end, carried it up ice before feeding Laine at the top of the left circle for the rookie’s 18th of the campaign. “I knew that he was going to pass, so I had to be ready,” Laine said, adding it was “easy” to score with a beautiful pass and that was much of a hole to shoot for. The Jets padded their lead with a couple of quick ones early in the third. On a partial 2-on-1 at 2:54, Mathieu Perreault sent a beautiful saucer pass over to Wheeler, who chopped it home for his ninth of the year and first eight games. Then, about a minute later, Ehlers took a feed from Scheifele at the bottom of the circle and ripped top shelf, celebrating his fifth with an emphatic leap into the corner glass. Laine and Scheifele did some great work along the boards to first free the puck and then send it across to Ehlers, who had snuck behind the Colorado D. “In a game like this where we’re up 2-0 and I feel like we’re playing really well, it felt good to put one in,” he said. Ehlers had gone 15 games without a goal before potting one last week in Calgary, but was held off the score sheet in the following two before breaking out tonight. Ehlers, with help from Laine, found the empty net with a half minute left in the third. “I’m super excited for him,” Laine said of his linemate, and best friend off the ice. “He’s had so many good chances and now he got two goals. I think they were huge for his (confidence). The Jets were far and away the better team in the opening 20 as they outshot the Avalanche 11-6, but Pickard - a Winnipeg native - stood tall in his first start in his hometown. Bryan Little had a great chance to open the scoring midway through when Dustin Byfuglien sent him in alone with a 45-foot outlet pass, but with a defender in chase, closing the gap and limiting his options, Little looked up and fired wide. On a power play late in the period, Laine had two chances from the top of the circle. The first - a one-timer off a Toby Enstrom feed - was gobbled up by the netminder, while the second-a wrister with a clear lane to the net - rattled the pipe. The kids were dangerous all game long, earning the praise of their head coach in his post-game press conference. “Even though they’re both really young and there’s lots in their game that’s still developing, they have a really clear idea of who they are as players and that makes it a lot easier to play off. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

VANCOUVER, BC - Jannik Hansen and Sven Baertschi scored 3:22 apart early in the third period to break a 1-1 tie and power the Canucks to a 4-1 win over the Jets at Rogers Arena. Hansen scored the other to cap a season-high two-goal game and Bo Horvat scored into the empty net, while Blake Wheeler tallied Winnipeg’s lone marker. Connor Hellebuyck made 20 saves. “We slowed down,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “I don’t know if we tried to slow the game down or thought somehow we’d be able to move it through the neutral zone a little easier, but we struggled with that, for sure. A lot of the stuff we’d like to handle better, just the simple passes on and off the tape. With Henrik Sedin providing the screen in front, Hansen sailed one in from well out at the centre point, eluding all traffic en route and finding the twine high on the blocker side to give the Canucks their first lead at 3:19. Baertschi added the insurance at 6:41, scoring an unassisted breakaway goal to put the Canucks on top by two. The Jets won the offensive zone faceoff at the other end, but Dustin Byfuglien hammered a slap shot into the pants of the challenging forward. Baertschi jumped on it, raced in alone and went backhand shelf for the all-important third goal. Wheeler opened the scoring for the Jets with a power-play goal at 14:05. After getting a pass from Dustin Byfuglien, the captain showed great speed down the far side, catching a defender flat-footed before beating him wide, driving to the net and stuffing it home on the forehand for his 10th - and by far his prettiest - of the campaign. After going his previous eight without one, Wheeler now has goals in each of his last two games. “We got a little bit stubborn coming up the ice,” he said of what happened in the final 40 minutes. “We didn’t want to make their defencemen turn around and as a result, we got hung up in the neutral zone and didn’t spend much time in the offensive zone. We got clogged up and couldn’t keep them off the board.” Shots on goal favoured the Jets 13-7 after a heavily tilted opening frame. The Jets finished the night 1-for-5 on the power play, and had some good looks - including a third-period post by Patrik Laine - all night. “We moved it around pretty good; some good stuff to build off of,” Wheeler said of the preparation for Thursday’s rematch. It was a different story in the front of the second, though. The Canucks had seven of the first 10 shots of the period, including the tying goal after stringing together a couple of strong shifts deep in Winnipeg territory. Hansen tied things up at 9:18 after the Jets got caught running around, out of breath, in their own end. Henrik Sedin cycled the puck out front, and after ever so slightly missing his brother in the blue paint, the pass found Hansen between the hash marks. The Dane made no mistake, roofing it past Hellebuyck. The Jets had a good response, and in fact carried the play for a good portion afterwards, but Hellebuyck still had to be sharp when called upon. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

VANCOUVER, BC - Nikolaj Ehlers had a three-point night, scoring twice in the third period and assisting on Patrik Laine’s tying goal late in the second, to power the Jets to a 4-1 win in the second of two meetings with the Canucks this week at Rogers Arena. Bryan Little found the net with 4:17 to play to round out the scoring, while Michael Hutchinson was excellent in goal, stopping 22 of 23 shots in the victory. The Jets will now enter the break winners of three of their last four, and with an overall record of 16-17-3. The Jets broke a 1-1 tie on Ehlers’ first of the night, 1:23 into the third period. On a 2-on-1 with Mark Scheifele after picking a pass out of the air in his own zone, Ehlers took the puck down the right side and made quick head fake before pulling the puck to his forehand and firing a sizzler short side on Vancouver goalie Ryan Miller. “On chance generation, Niki has probably led our hockey team,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “He’s been in alone so many times and hasn’t had any breaks around the net. He still generated points [during a slump that ended last week], he just didn’t put pucks past the ‘tender. Ehlers put the game away with a beautiful power-play goal at 12:23. Taking the puck to the front of the net after getting a sweet feed from Nic Petan, No 27 lifted a quick shot up under the bar from four feet out to give the Jets a commanding 3-1 advantage. “I tried to put it backdoor to Patrik first, but he didn’t want to score. I knew that the D was going to cheat a little bit and I just did it myself,” Ehlers said with a quizzical stare before letting out a big laugh. Ehlers now has nine goals and 29 points in 36 games this season. Little made it a 4-1 game with a terrific second effort knifing across the goalmouth and stuffing a shot just inside the far post for his fifth of the year at 15:43. Blake Wheeler picked the assist after making a great pass, and then putting the initial blast on goal. Markus Granlund opened the scoring for the Canucks at 3:54 of the first period. Looking to make a pass to the opposite corner behind his own net, Jacob Trouba gave the puck away to Loui Eriksson, who fed it out front to Granlund for the one-timer. Laine tied things up for the Jets with only 42.5 seconds left in the middle frame. With speed down the right side, the rookie took a pass from Ehlers and rifled a shot up high on Miller for his 19th of the year. “I just thought we got our battle right,” Maurice said. “The compete level changed for us between the first and second periods and after that we were a pretty good team.” Hutchinson, meanwhile, kept his team within reach, building a fortress around the blue paint when it mattered most in a 1-0 game. Back-to-back pad saves late in the period off Chris Tanev and Brandon Sutter paved the way for the equalizer, as the visitors quite clearly had a spur in their stride from that point forward. “About two and a half or three weeks ago, he really focused on competing in practice,” Maurice said. “We started to see it in the games as well, and he hasn’t played a lot of them, but he had it going tonight. The way he’s moving and fighting in the net, he was competing and we need that from our goaltending. And then that save he made was really important so the game didn’t get away from us.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

CHICAGO, IL - Blake Wheeler, Mark Scheifele and Drew Stafford supplied the offence, while Connor Hellebuyck made 34 saves in a 3-1 victory. The Jets have now won four of their last five games and are back to .500 with an overall record of 17-17-3 for 37 points. Blake Wheeler, who was once again leading by example with one of his best games of the year, drew first blood for the road team with his 11th of the year at 8:27 of the opening period. Crawford made the initial save - a sensational, reactionary-type block - off Bryan Little, who got a piece of a Trouba blast from the right point, but Wheeler cruised in put away the rebound with a choppy backhander in tight. The captain finished with a game-high five shots on goal, and was determined to bring the puck to the net in any way possible. “I thought we, as a group, didn’t show any signs of rust, and had good jump,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. A one-goal lead quickly became a two-goal cushion with 5:13 to play as Trouba wired one from well out at the right point, beating Crawford high glove with Scheifele setting the screen in front. Nikolaj Ehlers - who was fresh off a three-point game the other night in Vancouver - made a series of plays to make it all happen, bringing the puck up the right side, cutting back, stalling and forcing the D to collapse inside the circles before finding Trouba with a great feed back to the blue line. The goal was initially credited to Trouba, but was later given to Scheifele. Ehlers picked up the other assist. Trouba, meanwhile, had himself a night. He finished with three shots on goal, and was on the ice for a team-high 25 shot attempts at even strength. “Right place, right time,” Trouba said of his night offensively. “I was just trying to get pucks to the net when I had the lane. The lane presented it a couple of times, so I just tried to get it there. “Maybe we need to take four days off before the next game,” he added with a laugh. The shots were even at 13 apiece, and while the Jets had the better of the chances, Hellebuyck had to be sharp to keep advantage intact. The Blackhawks made it a 2-1 game at 7:37 of the middle frame, after the Jets allowed their counterparts to break up ice with numbers. After gaining the zone on the right side, Patrick Kane made a slick pass over to Artem Anisimov, who got Hellebuyck to commit in tight before tucking the puck short side, around the elongated left pad. With less than five to play in the period, the Jets nearly restored their two-goal lead as Dustin Byfuglien stole the puck at the defensive blue line and raced in alone. The big man made a move to the forehand, evading the poke check by nary an inch, but Crawford made the save, anyway, closing the wickets in time to thwart the defenceman’s five-hole try. Persistence paid off, though, as Winnipeg was able to bury one and get the all-important insurance marker early in the third. Stafford chased down on a loose puck and turned a 1-on-2 into a partial break from the blue line on in. Corralling the bouncing puck inside the circles, he made a beautiful move to the forehand, jamming it five-hole to put the Jets up 3-1 at 2:27. Another post with the Chicago net empty gave the Jets four bars on the night. In other words, they were literally inches from blowing this one wide open, despite being outshot 35-34 overall. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

BLUE JACKETS JETS

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets had a chance to accomplish what 12 others before them failed to do in the month of December. For a good chunk of the night they were right there in the running, but the league-leading Columbus Blue Jackets had other ideas, and on the strength of two power-play goals by Alexander Wennberg, they earned a 14th straight victory - this one by a 5-3 margin - to tie the third-longest winning streak in NHL history. Shawn Matthias, Bryan Little and Mathieu Perreault scored for Winnipeg, and Michael Hutchinson made 30 saves. With the Jets carrying the play in spurts, but trailing 2-1, midway through the second period, Wennberg scored a backbreaker to give the Jackets a commanding 3-1 lead. Wennberg jumped on a loose puck in the slot and fired it home with a fellow Jacket draped all over Hutchinson. Winnipeg challenged for goaltender interference, but after a quick review, the call on the ice was confirmed and the Jackets officially took a 3-1 lead. The Jets had a definite territorial advantage overall in the middle frame, but were either denied by Bobrovsky, or plagued by either missed or blocked shots in key situations. Wennberg then scored a power-play goal early in the third to put the Jackets up 4-1. The Swede carried the puck out of the corner and took it to the front of the net, uncontested, where he fired a quick shot up high off the far post and in. The Jets made a game of it with a power-play goal at 6:29, as Little finished off a pretty, three-way passing play between himself, Blake Wheeler and Drew Stafford, but it wasn’t enough. Lukas Sedlak restored the Jackets’ three-goal advantage with 5:29 to play. “They got us into some situations where we were pretty confused defensively,” captain Blake Wheeler said. “You could see why they are where they are [in the standings]. They played really well and they know their game. We knew what was coming, we knew what they were going to bring, and they brought it. You’ve got to give them respect for how they played. Perreault added a PPG with just a few minutes left to ice a 5-3 final. Matthias, who had gone 11 games without a goal after scoring the Jets’ first of the season back on Oct. 13, drew first blood for the home side just two-and-a-half minutes into the game. In great position at the top of the blue paint, he redirected a long shot by Jacob Trouba past Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, who was peeking on the opposite side. Adam Lowry won the offensive-zone faceoff back to the point, and as a result, was credited the second assist. The Jets were all over the Jackets early on, recording eight of the first 10 shots of the game, but a freebie tied things up near the 10-minute mark, spoiling an otherwise good start against a team that typically scores in bunches. Hutchinson came well out of his net to handle a dump-in, but ended up turning the puck over to Brandon Saad behind the net as he fumbled the backhand. Saad centered the pill out front before going there himself and slamming home the rebound for his 14th of the year. A power-play goal with 3:31 to play put Columbus in front after Josh Morrissey was penalized for a second time in the period. Rookie sensation Zach Werenski took a long shot from the right point and the captain, Nick Foligno, got a piece of it in tight, redirecting it past Hutchinson for the Jackets’ first lead. Shots on goal favoured the Jets 14-12 after one. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

ISLANDERS JETS

WINNIPEG - In a word: “Unacceptable.” It was the only way Shawn Matthias - who was otherwise lost for words - could describe Saturday’s blowout loss to the New York Islanders. “We come home, we’re supposed to have the advantage. To play like that is unacceptable. My line’s got to be better. We’ve all got to be better. Tonight wasn’t our best, we know that, but we can’t get down, can’t frustrated. We’ve got to keep building, keep getting better.” John Tavares, Josh Bailey and Ryan Strome led the way for the Islanders, recording two points each in a 6-2 win. Thomas Greiss made 32 saves for the Islanders. Connor Hellebuyck, meanwhile, was pulled after allowing four goals on only 15 shots. Michael Hutchinson played the final 25 minutes and change, stopping seven of nine shots. Matthias broke the shutout with a shorthanded goal at 19:30 of the second period. Jacob Trouba did a great job leading the rush, forcing the D to back off on the right side before taking the puck around the net and finding Matthias with a patient pass at the bottom of the far circle. Trouba now has six points (1G, 5A) in his last eight games. Anders Lee and Andrew Ladd scored less than two minutes apart in the third period, however, putting the Islanders up 6-1. Nikolaj Ehlers got one more for the Jets on the power play with 3:05 to play. Patrik Laine faked a shot at the top of the near circle and made a beautiful pass over to Ehlers, who outwaited Greiss and fired bar down for his 10th of the year. Nikolay Kulemin opened the scoring for the Islanders early in the first period, notching his fifth of the year on a wonderful solo effort. The forward gathered speed in the neutral zone, split the D and buried his own rebound at the side of the net as Hellebuyck scrambled across, but failed to seal the near post. The Islanders padded their lead at 12:25 as Bailey and Tavares teamed up, winning a series of one-on-one battles before bringing the puck to the front of the net. Bailey outmuscled two Jets along the half wall and dished off to JT, who roofed a backhander over Hellebuyck’s left shoulder to give the visitors a 2-0 lead. While the home side had a frenzied period in the defensive zone, the line of Scheifele, Ehlers, and Laine were dominant offensively, helping generate 10 of Winnipeg’s 21 shots attempts in the opening frame. Shots on goal favoured the Jets 10-7 after one. Shane Prince put the Islanders up by three just 2:26 into the second. Strome did some great work behind the net before feeding the puck out front to Prince, who fired a quick shot short side from about 10 feet out. Hellebuyck, who had trouble covering his post on the opening goal as well, stayed still - blocker extended - long after the goal went in. The Islanders took a 4-0 lead with 5:47 to play, after a long stretch without a recording a shot. Strome took a pass from Johnny Boychuk and fired five-hole on a partial odd-man rush. Hellebuyck was pulled at this point. “When you have a young guy in net that has a tough night, you see it front and centre,” Maurice said. “Two of his last three games have been pretty darn good; one very good and tonight he really struggled, as did the rest of the hockey team. So he has to find a way to get better and we have to find a way to be better in front of him and give him a chance.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

TAMPA, FL - The Winnipeg Jets bounced back after a disappointing New Year’s Eve loss with an exciting 6-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning to kick off a three-game road trip. Nikolaj Ehlers led the way with a pair of goals including one on a penalty shot, Patrik Laine chipped in with a goal (EN) and two assists, while Mark Scheifele, Jacob Trouba and Dustin Byfuglien scored the others in a wild, back-and-forth affair on Tuesday at Amalie Arena. Connor Hellebuyck made 32 saves. With the Jets leading by three entering the third period, Tampa’s Ondrej Palat scored to make it a 4-2 game early in the third, but Ehlers restored the Jets’ three-goal advantage with 10:32 to play. With speed down the right side, Ehlers cut to the middle and beat Bolts goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy with a beautiful wrister from the top of the circles. “I’m building more and more confidence, and I’m feeling more and more comfortable,” Ehlers said. “Our line is doing (well). We’ve had our ups and downs as a line, but when we play a good game like today, when we play together, play with a lot of speed, we create a lot of chances and help this team win.” The Jets were soundly outplayed in the opening 20 minutes, outshot 17-6, in part because of three penalties in the first 10 minutes of the game. It was a different story in the second, though, with the Jets outshooting their former Southeast counterparts 13-10, dominating the possession time and getting the better of the chances, keeping the home side on their toes and pinned in their own end for the better part of the period. With the game tied 1-1 early in the middle frame, Ehlers put the Jets back on top with a beauty on a penalty shot. The Dane faked to the backhand, then quickly turned to the forehand before lifting a shot across the body of the goaltender, beating him top on the glove side. “I’ve had my difficulties on the breakaways,” Ehlers said with a laugh. “Today I thought, ‘I’m just going to go and try a quick move, backhand-forehand, and just shoot it.’” The Jets padded their lead just 49 seconds later as Trouba rocketed one home from the top of the circles after getting a nifty feed from Mathieu Perreault. The goal capped off a dominant shift by the Jets, who were led by their captain, grinding away with a workmanlike shift in the trenches - a battle that lasted for more than a minute without the Lightning gaining possession at any point. Byfuglien put the Jets up 4-1 with a long knuckler that Vasilevskiy badly misplayed, whiffing on it with the glove as Perreault did a flyby. The goal was Byfuglien’s fifth of the year, while Wheeler and Josh Morrissey drew the assists. That shot - of one of only six in the period for Winnipeg - came at just the right time. On a power play of their own after killing off a couple of early penalties, the Jets took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Scheifele, with the assist going to Laine, who delivered a beautiful pass through traffic, from the near wall to the front of the net. The Jets entered the night 5-for-17 on the power play in their last five games. “We had some good energy, created some good momentum,” Wheeler said. “Niki’s penalty shot really got us going - a little shot of adrenaline. “Overall it was a really good win for us.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

SUNRISE, FL - Patrik Laine had a goal and an assist, Bryan Little tallied two helpers, and Nikolaj Ehlers chipped in with a single - his eighth in his last eight games - to lead the Jets to their second straight victory. Connor Hellebuyck was excellent in goal, posting 31 saves in the win. “It feels really good. It’s what we wanted to do on this road trip and we’re off to a great start,” Little said. “We’re getting rewarded offensively for playing the right way. We’re not cheating for our chances, we’re playing a simple game and we’re taking advantage when we do get those chances.” Matthias opened the scoring for the Jets with a tip-in at the five-minute mark of the second period. Adam Lowry won the draw back to Paul Postma, who hammered a shot from the left-centre point, finding Matthias at the top of the blue paint for his fifth of the year. Lowry led all forwards with 17:02 of ice time. “In order to give Little and Scheifele more offensive zone starts, he’s going to go in for pretty much all those faceoffs,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “That first goal is a faceoff won with a tip to the net, and that’s how they’re going to score goals. Having them be confident and not just thinking about burning ice time, but defending and scoring goals, has been big or our team.” The Jets padded their lead just 2:21 later as Laine tallied his 21st of the year, which leads all rookies. As the Panthers attempted a breakout, Little forced the issue and stripped the normally sure-handed Michael Matheson, before feeding Laine with a short pass at the bottom of the near circle. The 18-year-old made no mistake - really, did anyone expect otherwise? - going down on one knee and ripping a shot into the open side. “He was really patient and alone in front of the net, and still he passed. That was a good play by him, and it was easy to put it in,” Laine said. “It’s always nice to score. I’ve been able to help my team win with those goals, like today, so I’m happy I’ve been scoring.” Added Little of Laine’s offensive contributions: “I was (tempted to shoot), until I knew who I was on the ice with. I was in a pretty good shooting position, too, but I figured if it got to him it was pretty much guaranteed. “We’re not surprised by it anymore. That shot is unbelievable, and some nights he doesn’t have that many chances, but he’s a guy that only needs one clear shot and he’s putting it in the back of the net.” Greg McKegg cut the deficit in half with only 1:42 to play in the period. With speed down the right side after Ben Chiarot turned the puck over in the neutral zone, McKegg rifled a shot off the far post and in for his third of the year. Jaromir Jagr drew the assist - the 1,136th of his illustrious career - and in doing so, takes over sole possession of fifth all-time, surpassing Paul Coffey, in career helpers. But that was all the offence the Panthers had in them. Ehlers got the two-goal lead right back with a wicked snipe, bar down, from the circles only 2:46 into the third. Once again, it was Little making it happen with a terrific forecheck, stripping the puck from Matheson for the second time before feeding Ehlers for the one-timer. Scheifele rounded out the scoring late in the third he buried the rebound from a Laine chance with a swift backhander in tight. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

BUFFALO, NY - For the eighth time in as many tries this season, the Winnipeg Jets were unable to turn a two-game winning streak into three. Worse, they lost their leading goal-scorer in the process. Trying to gather a pass in the neutral zone, Patrik Laine got flattened with a devastating open-ice hit by Sabres defenceman Jake McCabe, and all hell broke loose. With sticks and gloves littering the ice, Mark Scheifele was given the only penalty - a roughing minor - for going after McCabe. Laine, meanwhile, stayed down for several minutes before getting helped to the dressing room. He did not return. That, after the game had already swung heavily in Buffalo’s favour. The Sabres erased a 3-1 deficit with three unanswered goals in front half of the third, and the Jets were unable to battle back, dropping a 4-3 decision. Winnipeg got goals from Nikolaj Ehlers, and former Sabres Drew Stafford and Joel Armia, but it wasn’t enough. Connor Hellebuyck made 32 saves. With the Jets up by two entering the third period, the Sabres came out flying and quickly tied the game with a pair of quick goals by Marcus Foligno and Zemgus Girgensons. Foligno took a breakaway pass from Cody Franson and made a slick move on the forehand, sliding it just across to the line to make it a one-goal game. Then, just 26 seconds later, Girgensons tied it as he tucked home a loose puck on a delayed penalty. Moments later, Laine was knocked down and the game changed for good. Brian Gionta scored the eventual game-winner at 9:54, jumping on a loose puck in the slot, bringing it across the blue paint and roofing a shot to put the Sabres up 4-3. The Jets had a strong first 40 minutes, and with the teams tied early in the second period, they took control of the game as the former Sabres went to work with a couple of quick goals. At 2:31, Stafford bowled his way to the net and on his third crack in the blue paint - out of mid-air, no less - he chopped home his third of the year to give the Jets a 2-1 lead on the power play. Armia made it a 3-1 game only 5:21 later he jumped on a rebound from an Adam Lowry shot and deposited the loose puck into the open side past Robin Lehner for his first in 11 games. Shots favoured Winnipeg 30-20 after 40 minutes of play. “We’re going to chew on this one for a while,” Maurice said. “Up until we got the three consecutive penalties at the end of the second, I thought our game was about as good as it could be. You have to build on that, but it’s going to be tough to let that one go.” Ehlers opened the scoring for the Jets, who recorded the first eight shots of the game, less than five minutes into the contest. The winger took a feed from Laine on a 2-on-1 and fired it bar down for his 14th of the season, putting him just one shy of the 15 he scored during his rookie campaign one year ago. Mark Scheifele was credited with the second assist, as he took a big hit to make a play in the neutral zone, creating the odd-man situation. The Jets were in control for much of the opening frame, but they slowed down in the final few minutes and allowed the Sabres to even the score with only 23 seconds left. Ryan O’Reilly - who recently returned after missing four games due to an appendectomy - buried one five-hole after getting a terrific cross-seam pass from Sam Reinhart, immediately following a Winnipeg turnover. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Goals by Dustin Byfuglien and Blake Wheeler, along with 28 saves from Connor Hellebuyck, helped the Jets to a tactical 2-0 win over the Calgary Flames, giving Winnipeg three wins in its last four games. “We were trying to focus on all the really positive things we did on that trip,” Wheeler said of the three-game eastern swing, where the Jets collected four of a possible six points and were in control, leading 3-1 in the third period of their final game against the Buffalo Sabres. “A good majority of that trip we took some nice strides, but it just got away from us at the wrong time there in Buffalo. We had our focus in the right place and came out determined tonight to get back on the right track.” With the win, the Jets are now only three points back of the Flames for the first of two Western Conference wild-card spots. They’re only one point back of the second, but the Los Angeles Kings have three games in hand. It was the proverbial four-point game. A regulation loss would have put the Jets a more significantly distant seven points back with an even number of games played. “You need the win. You need to come out and play right and win that next game so that you can, if you’re judging periods, be a lot more positive about the last 12 periods that you played,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “We had a couple [periods] we didn’t like, the first in Tampa wasn’t the best, but then we were very, very good, winning the game and not giving one up here today.” Byfuglien opened the scoring for the Jets at 10:21 of the first period. The big man showed great speed through the neutral zone, flying past Mark Giordano before toe-dragging Dougie Hamilton and firing a shot under the arm of Flames goalie Chad Johnson. The Jets had the better of the chances overall, but trailed the Flames 9-6 in shots after one period of play. Nikolaj Ehlers had a chance to extend the lead midway through the second when new linemate Drew Stafford found him with a deflected outlet pass, but Johnson made a great save on the Dane’s backhand five-hole attempt, smothering it between the pads. Moments later, Joel Armia jumped on a loose puck and found himself one-on-one with the goaltender, but he was checked from behind and lost the handle in tight as he made a cheeky move to the forehand. The Jets outshot the Flames 12-6 in the middle frame for a two-period advantage of 18-15. “It was tight defensively,” said Mark Scheifele. “Both sides were trying to create something and both teams weren’t giving up a whole lot, but each game, depending on who it’s against, you’ve got to have that (defensive) mentality. Wheeler added the insurance at 3:16 of the third, scoring his first in five games to give him 12 on the year. The captain hounded Calgary defenceman T.J. Brodie, forcing him into a turnover just inside the offensive blue line. Intercepting the D-to-D pass attempt, Wheeler bust in on the right side and whipped a quick shot high on the glove side. “It was a good, patient game,” Wheeler said. “We knew where we were at. We liked where our game was at, we weren’t panicked because of what happened in Buffalo. It happened at a bad time and we wanted to focus on all the good things we were doing because we really liked where our game was at.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Phillip Danault and Artturi Lehkonen scored two goals apiece, while three others had multi-point efforts as the Montreal Canadiens handed the Jets a 7-4 loss to close out a two-game home stand. Mark Scheifele (2), Mathieu Perreault and Bryan Little supplied the offence for Winnipeg. Connor Hellebuyck was pulled late in the first period after allowing three goals on seven shots. Michael Hutchinson finished the game, stopping 19 of 23, and suffering the loss. The Canadiens were all over the Jets in a sloppy second period, turning a 3-2 lead into a commanding 5-2 rout as the recently recalled Sven Andrighetto and the hero of the game, the 23-year-old Danault, scored 3:38 apart to bury the home side. Andrighetto’s goal - his first of the year - 53 seconds in restored a cushion the visitors once had about 20 minutes earlier. Left wide open in front, the winger drove home a Brian Flynn feed at the lip of the blue paint just 53 seconds into the middle frame. Danault padded the lead at 4:31 as he gathered speed in the neutral zone, blew past Dustin Byfuglien before cutting to the net and ripping a shot high over the glove of Hutchinson. Scheifele pulled the Jets a bit closer with a power-play goal less than a minute later, slamming the puck into the open side for his second of the night and 19th of the year. Nikolaj Ehlers recorded the primary assist with a great pass across the diamond, extending his point streak to five straight games. The 20-year-old now has nine goals and 14 points in his last 11 games overall. Winnipeg manufactured only three shots on goal in the period. Lehkonen salted it with a pair in the front half of the third before Little scored off a great feed from Stafford at 10:06. But the damage was truly done early. Montreal scored twice in the first five minutes to put the home team in a deep hole - one it just couldn’t get out of. Danault drew first blood only 57 seconds in, banging home a rebound at the side of the net after the Jets failed to corral the bouncing puck in tight. Hellebuyck had trouble with an Alexander Radulov shot, leaving the rebound right out in front of the net, where Danault won a battle and knocked it home on the backhand. Flynn put the Canadiens up by a pair just over three minutes later as he took a pass at the top of the far circle and rifled one up high, handcuffing Hellebuyck and having it trickle in after getting a piece of the ‘tender’s left shoulder. Undeterred after a couple of tough plays in the D zone, the Jets made a game of it at 6:07 as the top line went to work. Scheifele finished off a pretty give-and-go with Stafford, who delivered a great feed from behind the net to give the pivot a clean look from close range. Back-to-back Montreal penalties gave the Jets a chance for the tie with a 51-second 5-on-3, but the power play passed without incident. Perreault tied things up off a great feed from Blake Wheeler at 12:58, roofing a shot from the bottom of the circle to give the Quebec native his fourth of the campaign. The goal came just moments after Dustin Byfuglien, who drove hard to the net earlier that shift, sailed a shot through traffic and off the base of the goalpost. Tomas Plekanec - who missed the game-day skate with the flu - put Montreal back in front with an unassisted marker at 14:01, driving a shot upstairs after a jumping on a loose puck between the dots. Hellebuyck was pulled this point after allowing all three goals and looking shaky on the few shots in between. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

GLENDALE, AZ - With a chance to redeem themselves after their most disappointing effort of the season, the Winnipeg Jets looked no better early on in the first of a three-game road trip, surrendering four first-period goals en route to a 4-3 loss to the Arizona Coyotes at Gila River Arena. For the second straight game, Connor Hellebuyck was given the hook after allowing three goals on only a handful of shots early in the opening frame. In Wednesday’s loss to the Montreal Canadiens, he allowed three on seven shots. Tonight? Three on six. Michael Hutchinson finished the game, stopping 22 of 23 shots in relief, including a Tobias Rieder breakaway that could have iced it midway through the second period. Shawn Matthias, Mark Stuart and Blake Wheeler supplied the offence for Winnipeg. To their credit, the Jets had a strong second and third, and were decidedly the better team in those final 40 minutes, but by then the damage had been done. After Stuart cut the deficit to 4-2 early in the third period, Wheeler made it a one-goal game on a great redirection in front after the Jets pulled the goalie for an extra attacker. Overall, the Jets outshot the Coyotes 28-18 in the final two periods, and 37-29 overall. “We can be better in all the small areas of the game, but they never quit,” Maurice said. “Can we be better? Sure. Better performances, individually, out of people? Yeah. But they didn’t quit. They kept competing, kept fighting to the very end and that means a lot right now.” Matthias opened the scoring 3:43 into the game, but despite the strong start, the Jets heeding advice to work “their asses off” in response Wednesday’s defeat, it was all downhill from there. The Coyotes replied on their first shot of the game just 1:07 later as the red-hot Brandon Perlini made the Jets pay dearly for a turnover at the offensive blue line. With speed down the right side, Perlini rounded the defence and fired a quick shot high over Hellebuyck’s left shoulder for his fifth of the year. Perlini, who spent the bye week with the Coyotes’ AHL affiliate, the Tucson Roadrunners, recorded a hat trick this past Tuesday against the Manitoba Moose, and now has four goals in his last five NHL games. Jamie McGinn made it a 3-1 game with a redirection at 10:41 before Perlini’s power-play goal - a rebound at the side of the net - put the Jets in all sorts of trouble at 14:45. That’s the way the score remained until the third period when the Jets added two to come within a goal. “After that first one, we got off to a good start and were just trying to get going again, and we tried to get that one back a little too much, got a little too aggressive on the offensive side of things,” Wheeler said. Stuart pulled the Jets a little closer at 2:46 of the third. With Matthias creating havoc in the blue paint, the defenceman sifted one through from the top of the left circle, beating Arizona goalie Mike Smith low glove side to make it 4-2. “It’s tough. We’ve got to start on time,” Matthias said. “I thought we did, we had a really good first shift. We scored early and I don’t know if we just let off the gas or whatever it was, but we’ve got to be ready to go tomorrow night. We get to get back at it quickly here, which is good. “We had a good meeting and we’re going to respond well tomorrow.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

LOS ANGELES, CA - Jeff Carter scored 1:36 into overtime to give the LA Kings a 3-2 win after trailing late in the third period. Jake Muzzin fed Carter with a sweet dish at the side of the net, and forward toe-dragged before firing it home for his team-leading 23rd goal of the season. “Sometimes on back-to-backs it takes you a little while, but after that, we played a hell of a game,” Maurice said. “I liked a lot of what we did. We got stronger and stronger. We needed the third one to go to put a team like that out (of it), but it was probably right that it was that close at the end. Dustin Byfuglien scored a power-play goal at 7:38 of the third to give the Jets a 2-1 lead, but the Kings battled back to tie it on the back of a Dustin Brown goal with 5:08 to play to send the game to overtime. Brown found a loose puck in the blue paint after Derek Forbert shot was blocked in front. Brown battled among three Jets but banged it home at the side of the net. The goal came just moments after Blake Wheeler was denied on a partial breakaway. Drew Stafford scored Winnipeg’s other goal, while Michael Hutchinson was excellent in goal, stopping 35 of 38 shots. The Jets were under siege early on, surrendering the first goal at 3:19 after a tough, minute-long shift that saw the Kings pour their third, fourth and fifth shots on Hutchinson. Dodging a check on a pick play down low, Anze Kopitar then moved the puck up the far wall before making a move to the middle and finding Marian Gaborik with a terrific, 35-foot pass across the goalmouth. Gaborik made no mistake at the side of the net, beaming a shot just under the bar to give the Kings a 1-0 lead. The Jets had a much better response than in their previous two outings, but penalty troubles kept them in a defensive posture for much of the opening frame. The damage could, and likely should have been more severe, but Hutchinson’s best friend - the goalpost - kept three other home shots off the board. The Kings hit four others on the night, including two on the same play late in the game when Kyle Clifford swiped at a loose puck, but his try at the empty net hit the base of both posts and stayed out. Shots on goal favoured the Kings, who had the period’s only two power plays, 15-9 after one. Stafford evened the score for the Jets with a power-play goal at 15:06 of the second. Stafford, who had just jumped on during a partial line change, took a great pass from Mathieu Perreault and rifled it home from the top of the right circle. Mark Scheifele picked up the other assist, giving him an even 40 points (19G, 21A) on the year. The Jets had taken over the period and were even in shots at this point, while earning their offensive zone time on the strength of a relentless forecheck. “I thought we played pretty well,” Hutchinson said. “Our effort level was there; we battled. LA’s a tough team to play in their home rink. They have some big bodies out there, but we battled out there and played real close to a full 60 minutes. Even when they had the puck in our zone for a little bit, guys were sacrificing, blocking shots and playing the way we need to play. If we play that way all the time we’re going to be really successful down the stretch.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

SAN JOSE, CA - The San Jose Sharks hit for the cycle in Monday’s matinee, scoring shorthanded, twice at even strength and one other on the power play to defeat the Jets 5-2 at SAP Center. Josh Morrissey and Mark Scheifele scored Winnipeg’s lone goals, while Michael Hutchinson made 27 saves. “We just gave up a little too much,” said captain Blake Wheeler. “When you’re in these situations and things aren’t going your way, you sometimes try to do too much and it ends up costing you, giving up too much on the other end. “Kind of the same story.” The Jets have now lost four straight and will open a four-game home stand on Wednesday against the Arizona Coyotes. Asked what concerns him the most after a winless road trip, Head Coach Paul Maurice briefly paused before offering this blunt assessment: “Probably not taking advantage of the chances that we had…and then about four more that I’m not telling you about.” The Jets got off to a flying start and looked destined to score the game’s opening goal, until a first-period power play, and the resulting shorthanded goal by Sharks forward Joel Ward, derailed an otherwise good period. With speed down the right side after picking up a loose puck in the neutral zone, Ward fired a shot to the upper-glove side, beating the goalie for his fourth of the year, from Justin Braun, to give the Sharks a 1-0 lead at 11:54. Winnipeg still had 1:45 with which to work on the power play before a Chris Tierney penalty turned that into a 21-second 5-on-3, but even that wasn’t enough to get the offence rolling. Blake Wheeler had the best chance during the nearly four minutes of power play time, clipping iron with a wicked shot off the rush after beating Brent Burns 1-on-1. Shots on goal were even at 11 apiece, but there was blood in the water after one. The Sharks took a 2-1 lead just 2:45 into the second as Timo Meier found himself in alone. Mark Stuart stepped up and delivered a massive hit at the offensive blue line, but that resulted in an odd-man rush the other way. The puck eventually found its way over to Meier, and the rookie made no mistake, slinging a shot past Hutchinson for the second of his young career. Brent Burns padded the lead with a power-play goal at 7:08. Burns took a long shot from the centre point, and it bounce off the end boards, off Hutchinson’s right skate and in, giving the all-star defender his team-leading 18th goal and 45th point in this, his 44th game. The Jets manufactured only four shots in the period. Tierney put the Sharks up 4-0 with 8:19 to play in the third, beating Hutchinson blocker side, off the post and in from the middle of the far circle for his fourth of the year. Morrissey broke the shutout with only 2:36 to play, feeding a long shot through from the centre point and having it pinball past Martin Jones. The teams traded goals in the final 19 seconds of the game, with Scheifele getting his 20th of the year on a botch by Jones before Joe Thornton scored into the empty net just nine seconds later. “It’s not good,” said forward Mathieu Perreault. “You look at the standings and there are less and less games ahead of us, and we’re digging ourselves into a pretty big hole. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

COYOTES JETS

WINNIPEG - Fourteen different players - including six different goal-scorers - found their way onto the score sheet, while Ondrej Pavelec was excellent in goal, stopping all but three shots to secure his first win (in his first game) of the campaign. Bryan Little, Blake Wheeler, Andrew Copp, Joel Armia, Jacob Trouba and Nikolaj Ehlers scored as the Jets knocked off the Arizona Coyotes 6-3 in the opener of a four-game home stand. Arizona took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission after getting goals from Josh Jooris and Oliver Ekman-Larsson in the front half of the opening frame, but Winnipeg fought back, scoring three unanswered goals to establish a 4-2 lead midway through the second. It started early, and after Morrissey, Byfuglien, Little and Mathieu Perreault put on a clinic in puck control, Wheeler tied things up with his 14th of the year, 3:03 in. Perreault showed great patience at the side of the net, finding Wheeler with a sweet pass across the goalmouth after the captain bowled his way into position. The Jets took their first lead of the night just 1:39 later as the fourth line went to work, freezing the enemy with a relentless forecheck deep in the trenches. Eventually, after a Chris Thorburn shot was knocked down near the blue paint, Copp fended off a check before briefly getting the handle, spinning and firing into the open side for his first in 16 games. “We’re not going to be all high and mighty and think we’re the best team in the league all of a sudden, but it’s a good win and we’re going to enjoy it, for sure,” Copp said. “We want to remember this feeling and know what it takes to win day in and day out.” Armia put the Jets up by two with his prettiest of the year, finishing off an excellent, 45-foot centering pass from Shawn Matthias, who carried the puck up the left side after getting a stretch feed from Byfuglien before stutter-stepping a defender and sending the puck in front for the tip-in. The Jets outshot the Coyotes 19-8 in the period, owning it at every turn. Trouba put the Jets up 5-2 with 12:19 to play in the third period as he shovelled home the rebound from a Drew Stafford shot, plunging it between the legs of Mike Smith as he pierced his way through a quartet of Arizona defenders. Ehlers rounded out the scoring for Winnipeg just over a minute later as he fired one home from long range to record his 15th of the year, chasing Smith from the game. Jakob Chychrun added one late for the visitors to salt a 6-3 final. Louis Domingue finished the game for the Coyotes, making four saves in just over 11 minutes of action. Josh Jooris opened the scoring for the Coyotes on their first shot of the game at 2:49, but the Jets replied just 47 seconds later to even the score at one. For the 15,296 in attendance, it was less of the rollicking goal celebration we’ve become used to in this barn, and more of a deep sigh - relief, mostly - after the recent events in goal. Morrissey took a D-to-D pass from Dustin Byfuglien, cradled the puck at the left point and sifted one through traffic, putting it off Little and in for No. 18’s ninth of the year. Earlier, Jooris took the puck up his off wing and fired a low shot from the top of the left circle, beating Pavelec just under the pad after having it deflect off the stick of Trouba. “He was set square on it and to be honest with you, it was comical. It was funny,” Maurice said. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Ondrej Pavelec made 34 saves, including a franchise-high 25 in the second period alone, while Bryan Little (2), Blake Wheeler, Mark Scheifele and Nikolaj Ehlers manufactured the offence in a pivotal 5-3 win over the St. Louis Blues. “That’s the way it goes,” Pavelec said with a big, wide smile. “In the next week, I could be in the minors again. I go day-by-day and every time I get a chance to play, I give my best and see what happens.” The record Pavelec beat was his own, set in October of 2009 when he made 24 saves in a single period. “They just told me [about the record] 30 seconds ago. That’s nice,” he said with a laugh. With the game tied 1-1 early in the second period, Wheeler put the Jets - who scored the game’s opening tally - back in front with a filthy goal at 1:27 to record the first of five unanswered to take over the contest. From the seat of his pants after working doggedly on the half wall, Mathieu Perreault got the puck back to Dustin Byfuglien, who showed great vision finding Wheeler lone at the side of the net. The captain made no mistake, slamming it home at the far post for his 15th of the year. Little added the insurance at 2:10 of the third, scoring his second PPG of the afternoon to give the Jets a 3-1 lead. Wheeler made a great pass off the rush and Little did the rest at the top of the right circle, firing his 10th of the year past Copley. The Jets finished the game 3-for-5 on the power play. Scheifele added one more at 6:21, chopping home a loose puck on a delayed penalty, increasing his team-leading point total to 45 (21G, 24A) in this, his 45th game, before Ehlers rounded the scoring with the Jets’ third PPG of the day - a slapper off the wing - at 11:05. Paul Stastny and Kevin Shattenkirk cut into the lead with a couple quick ones late, but by then the damage had been done. Pavelec wasn’t overly busy in the first 25 minutes, but he was excellent when called upon midway through the second when the tide shifted in St. Louis’ favour. Among many great saves in a heavily tilted middle frame, his best came hot off the stick of Jaden Schwartz, who took a pass from Vladimir Tarasenko and rifled a one-timer flat along the ice. Pavelec went post-to-post and made a wonderful stop with the left toe to keep the Jets in front. A breath-taking breakaway save on Colton Parayko late in the stanza capped a franchise record 25-save period for the Winnipeg netminder. The Blues outshot the Jets 25-11 in the period. Little opened the scoring on the power play with a tip-in at 7:47 of the first period. Dustin Byfuglien hammered a one-timer from the top of the near circle, and Little got a piece of it at the edge of the blue paint, beating Blues goalie Pheonix Copley, who was making the first start of his NHL career. The Jets were all over the Blues early on, recording 10 of the first 12 shot attempts, including six that landed on goal in the first 12-and-ahalf minutes, but a Nic Petan penalty proved costly, as the Blues tied the game on just their third shot at 13:18. Paul Stastny made a great play, sending a beautiful over Kevin Shattenkirk, who fired it home from the bottom of the far circle as Pavelec dove across, but to no avail. The teams combined for only three shots the rest of the way, with the Jets leading 8-4 after one. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - They tried - man, did they try - pouring 33 shots on Anaheim goalie Jonathan Bernier, but his 31 saves helped preserve a 3-2 victory, despite a furious third-period rally. Andrew Copp and Nikolaj Ehlers had the goals for Winnipeg, which failed to win a third straight game for the ninth game this season, while Ondrej Pavelec made 24 saves, suffering his first loss in three starts. “It was a battle right from the get-go; a physical game, and not really a lot of easy ice for either team,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. With most the scoring happening in the first period, the Jets entered the third trailing by one, until Ryan Getzlaf scored a power-play marker at 8:48, putting the Ducks up by two and quelling any thought of a comeback. Ehlers’ 17th of the year - a highlight-reel marker with 7:07 to play - pulled the Jets within one, but they couldn’t cash another among their 17 third-period shots. With speed down the left side, Ehlers burned the defence, cut to the net and buried a backhander before flying through the air and crashing into the corner boards. “I wanted to get that pass from Toby and just take the outside and see what happens,” Ehlers said of the goal. “Everything just kind of opened up for me, so I just tried to take the puck to the net.” Ehlers added that while he hasn’t yet seen what Stanley Cup Playoff action is all about first hand, tonight’s game gave him a pretty good idea of what it’s all about. The Jets had a chance to tie it on a power play with under five to play, but for the fifth time on many tries in the game, the advantage came up empty. Winnipeg drew first blood just 2:14 in, but two goals in 85 seconds afterward supplied the offence for Anaheim as the Ducks took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission. The Jets evened up the shot count, and had a couple great chances on a pair of mid-to-late period power plays, but Bernier held his ground, keeping the Ducks in front after 40 minutes. The physical play ramped up late, and as you’d expect, Corey Perry and Ryan Kesler were right in the middle of it. As the horn sounded to end the second period, a scuffle ensued after Scheifele was hit along near the Anaheim bench. Blake Wheeler came in to protect his teammate, and was immediately jumped and dragged to the ice from behind by Perry. The Jets opened the scoring early of the first period as Copp, who moved up to the second line in place of the injured Drew Stafford, took advantage of the increased role and ice time. Copp took a wonderful pass from Mark Scheifele, who drew two defenders just inside the blue line, and labeled a shot stick side on Anaheim goalie Jonathan Bernier, giving him six on the year and second in the past three games. Logan Shaw tied things up for the Ducks with a shorthanded goal just 2:07 later. The Winnipeg power play looked disorganized, at best, and after a minute of awful puck movement, the road team took advantage. Pavelec stopped the initial blast on a 2-on-1 by Joseph Cramarossa, but Shaw drove to the net and tapped home the rebound to make it a 1-1 game, and completely turn the tide The Ducks took their first lead just over a minute later as Rickard Rakell beat Pavelec from a sharp angle, squeezing it between the pad and the near post from the bottom of the right circle to score his team-leading 20th of the campaign. It was a goal Pavelec said he would love to have back. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Patrick Marleau broke a 3-3 tie with 4:33 to play in the third as the San Jose Sharks, who trailed 3-2 earlier in the period, defeated the Jets 4-3. Bryan Little scored twice, and Andrew Copp chipped in the other for Winnipeg, while Ondrej Pavelec made 22 saves. The Jets trailed 1-0 and 2-1 before fighting back and grabbing their first lead on a Little goal at the four-minute mark, but Melker Karlsson tied it on a penalty shot just a few minutes later before Marleau put the Sharks back in front, and for good, as he finished off a cross-crease pass from Ryan Carpenter late. The Jets came close to tying the game late - and, in fact, the puck did cross the goal line after a scramble in the blue paint - but the play had been blown dead before Byfuglien jammed it home with only 17 seconds left. Here’s where it all went sideways: Jacob Trouba made what appeared to be an excellent defensive play, making stick-on-stick contact in his pursuit of the speedy Sharks forward, but the referees thought otherwise. “It wasn’t a penalty,” Maurice said, repeating it for good measure. “It was a big moment.” The Jets looked destined to win after getting a goal early in the third, breaking a 2-2 deadlock, but the penalty shot proved to be the difference, despite the strong play from No. 18. Little jumped on a loose puck between the hash marks and ripped a quick shot off the crossbar, straight down on the goal line before banking off the skate of Sharks goalie Aaron Dell and in to give the Jets their first lead of the night, but it didn’t last. It was a 1-1 game with the shots favouring the Jets, 9-8, after one, and 2-2 with the shots 19-15 in Winnipeg’s favour after 40 minutes. The Sharks took a 2-1 lead just 27 seconds into the middle frame. A bad bounce on a rim off the corner boards popped out to Mikkel Boedker, who fed a pass over to Logan Couture on a short 2-on-1. Couture made no mistake, gunning a shot low, stick side, after driving hard to the blue paint. The Jets battled back, carried the play and ultimately tied the game for a second time with only 1:59 to play after outshooting the Sharks 10-7 in the middle 20. Off the rush, Blake Wheeler dished off to the open side at the right circle, giving Copp all kinds of time to step into it after assessing his options. He did just that, launching the puck with a wicked slapper short side, bar down, for No. 7 on the year and his third in the past four games. Copp started the game on a line with Wheeler and Little, but Mark Scheifele took over on that unit after a tepid opening frame. Brent Burns opened the scoring for the Sharks with a power-play goal at 3:59 of the first period. Back-to-back Winnipeg penalties (Nic Petan for hooking, and a bench minor for too many men), gave the visitors a 1:24-long 5-on-3, and the Norris frontrunner wasted little time scoring his team-leading 21st of the year. Logan Couture put the puck on a tee, and Burns unloaded from the top of the left circle, beating Pavelec over the blocker to give the Sharks a 1-0 lead. The Jets went to work offensively after killing off the remainder of the penalty, tying the game on their fourth shot after catching the Sharks on a bad change. Little accelerated through the neutral zone and took a beautiful Josh Morrissey pass in alone, fighting off the check of Joel Ward before making a move to the backhand and stuffing it home at 8:02. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

CHICAGO, IL - Andrew Copp and Bryan Little scored 32 seconds apart in the final five minutes of the third period, and Mark Scheifele scored into the empty net with 2:03 to play, as the Jets knocked off the Blackhawks for a fourth straight time this year, 5-3 on Thursday at the United Center. Five different Jets had multi-point efforts, including Copp and Little, who had two points (1G, 1A) apiece to pace the visitors offensively. Patrik Laine and Shawn Matthias had Winnipeg’s other two goals, while Connor Hellebuyck was exceptional in goal, stopping 38 of 41 shots to pick his first win three weeks. “We want the games against the teams that we’re chasing to be meaningful,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. With the Jets trailing 3-2, Copp redirected Josh Morrissey’s point shot past Blackhawks goalie Scott Darling at 15:57 to tie the game, giving him nine on the year and his fourth in the past five games. Then, at 16:29, Little cruised down the right side and rifled a wicked shot top shelf, putting the Jets back in front after having a 2-0 lead erased earlier in the game. Scheifele found the empty net off a great pass by Copp just 1:28 later. Chicago surrendered the first two goals before getting one back on a power play late in the opening period before tying it up early in the second. With Mark Stuart out of the play thanks to a scuffle with Markus Kruger, Nick Schmaltz walked out of the corner and ripped one from a sharp angle, short side on Hellebuyck for the equalizer. Tanner Kero gave the Hawks their first lead of the night off a giveand-go with Patrick Kane with 3:23 to play in the middle frame. Kero, who started the play with a terrific defensive effort in the neutral zone, got the puck back at the right circle and put a sneaky shot through the five-hole for his fourth of the campaign. Hellebuyck was dialled in from that point forward, stopping all nine shots he faced in the third period - including a beauty on Jonathan Toews just prior to Copp’s equalizer - to give the Jets a chance. “I worked on the things I needed to work on,” Hellebuyck said of his mindset over the past four games while Ondrej Pavelec tended the twine. The Jets went on the attack after surviving an early push, and 6:15, they drew first blood with a power-play goal off some beautiful stick in tight. After getting the puck from Nikolaj Ehlers, Little made a great pass at the right circle, finding Laine between the dots, cocked and ready for the one-timer. The rookie made no mistake, blazing it past Darling for his 22nd of the year and first since returning from a concussion. The Jets weren’t finished, either, creating a two-goal cushion with a hard-working goal on the very next shift. Jacob Trouba’s point shot went off the leg of Blackhawks defenceman Brian Campbell in front, and slowly rolled toward the goal line. But before it could cross, or potentially be knocked away, Matthias made sure, slamming it home… The goals came just 42 seconds apart. Duncan Keith got the Hawks on the board with a PPG of their own at 13:07, and just five seconds into a Nic Petan penalty. With Artem Anisimov planted in the blue paint, Keith fired a slapper clean past Hellebuyck from the top of the left circle for his fourth of the year. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

ST. LOUIS, MO - The Jets, who entered the night three points back of the St. Louis Blues for a wild-card playoff spot, closed the gap with a colossal 5-3 win in the opener of a three-game road trip Tuesday, and are now only one point in the mirror with 29 games left on the schedule. Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele led the way offensively with three points apiece (1G, 2A), while Ondrej Pavelec made 24 saves. Patrik Laine, Nikolaj Ehlers and Jacob Trouba scored the other goals for Winnipeg. “That’s a team we’re trying to catch in the standings, so it was an important game for us,” Wheeler said. “It was great. We didn’t give up a whole lot the entire game. There are lot of positives to take from it.” With the win, the Jets have now won eight straight games against the Central Division. The Jets took a 3-2 lead into the third period and at the three-anda-half minute mark, they knocked home the all-important insurance marker to lock up the victory. Trouba made a great play at the defensive blue line to break up a rush by David Perron and turn it back up the other way. Wheeler then set him up for the one-timer, and Trouba’s blast caromed off a skate and in to give the Jets a 4-2 lead. Trouba was a monster, recording the goal, five shots, two hits and two takeaways in 24:53 of ice time. “Jacob Trouba played one hell of a hockey game,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “He was big, strong and got stronger has the game went on. He got stronger as the game went on. He just keeps getting better. Blues defenceman Alex Pietrangelo scored to make it a one-goal game with 12 seconds left, but Wheeler found the empty net with three ticks on the clock to salt it away. Alexander Steen opened the scoring for the Blues early in the first period, but the lead didn’t last. The Jets, who were far and away the better of the two teams in the period, evened things up a half-minute to play during 4-on-4 hockey. On a 2-on-1 created Toby Enstrom, Scheifele made a great sauce pass over to Wheeler before the captain returned the favour with equally filthy dish across the goalmouth, giving Scheifele a tap-in for his 23rd of the year. “It was an unusual game,” Maurice said. “There was some strange defensive zone coverage from both teams, but we did a pretty good job letting Pav see the puck. … They cleared the front of the net pretty well, too.” Laine gave the Jets their first lead just 22 seconds into the middle frame, pulling him back into a tie with Scheifele for the team lead in goals. Laine took a centering pass from Scheifele and buried a beautiful shot five-hole from the bottom of the right circle. The Jets padded the lead with a power-play goal at 5:53 as Ehlers took the puck from the right point, button-hooked, moved in and fired, picking the corner on Blues goalie Jake Allen with an incredible shot far side, just under the bar. Vladimir Tarasenko made a great play at the right point before dishing off, getting the puck back at the top circles and blistering a shot over the glove to make it a 3-2 game. Pavelec shut it down after that, stopping 10 the rest of the way, including a couple showstoppers on Tarasenko. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

DALLAS, TX - Mark Scheifele scored twice, while Ondrej Pavelec - who was absolutely sensational - made 39 saves in a 4-3 win over the Dallas Stars Thursday, and are back to within a point of a wild-card playoff spot. Bryan Little and Nikolaj Ehlers had the other goals, and Patrik Laine had two assists. It was a hair-raising final few minutes as Dallas littered the blue paint as part of a 14-shot third, but Pavelec held the fort. “A lot (of saves). Some high-end ones, too, off some really high-end shooters, and some he didn’t see until late,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “Over 82 games, to get on any kind of roll, the goaltender has to grab one for you. “Best player on the ice.” It was a 2-2 game with the shots favouring the Stars 15-14 after one, but the Jets took over for a good chunk of the second, scoring twice to go up by two. Scheifele appeared to put the Jets up 3-2 on a power play early in the second, but a challenge initiated by the Stars coaching staff revealed the play was offside. Didn’t matter. Scheifele got his team-leading 25th, anyway, on the very same power play, helped by an Antoine Roussel penalty that extended the advantage to a 1:21-long 5-on-3. For the second time in the game, the goal came only moments after Pavelec came up with a gargantuan save, stopping Benn on a shorthanded breakaway with his right pad flat on the ice. “It happened so quick. That was probably the first breakaway in my career on a 5-on-3, so I didn’t expect that, but I was just waiting for his move,” Pavelec said. “It’s a great, great win for us. It’s a huge road trip for us and we want to keep going, keep pushing. Now we go to Colorado and we want the two points.” The Jets took their first two-goal lead of the night at 12:51. Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen gave the puck away to Laine behind his own net, and was unable to scramble back in time, as the rookie found Ehlers in front for the tap-in. The home side chiselled away at the deficit with a key goal late in the period, as Patrick Eaves put home a loose puck in the blue paint to make it a one-goal game once again, but Pavelec kept them from getting any closer down the stretch. Little opened the scoring with a knuckler off the rush at 6:49 of the first period. Little took the puck down the right side after getting a pass from Ehlers, and after making a quick move to the inside, he fired a shot that changed direction off a defender, beating Lehtonen for his 14th of the year in this, his 31st game. John Klingberg tied things up for the Stars with a power-play goal at 11:55. Pavelec made the initial save off Jamie Benn after the Stars won a faceoff, but Klingberg jumped on the rebound and chipped it up under the bar to even the score. The Stars took a 2-1 lead just 2:04 later as Benn put home the rebound off a Patrik Nemeth shot, as Pavelec knocked it down at the lip of the blue paint. But the Jets weren’t going away, knotting the game once more off a great effort from Wheeler. The captain made a terrific read in the defensive zone, intercepting at a pass up the middle before taking the puck up ice on a 3-on-2. Wheeler, showing great patience, feathered a pass through a defender and finding Scheifele on the opposite side. No. 55 made no mistake, hammering into the open side for the first of two on the night. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

DENVER, CO - From the drop of the puck right through to the end, the Winnipeg Jets were a step or two behind. The Jets had trouble generating much of anything offensively, as the Colorado Avalanche won battles and were first to pucks at both ends of the rink all afternoon, leading to a 5-2 win at Pepsi Center. Jarome Iginla had a goal an assist, while Matt Duchene had three helpers to pace the Avs offensively. Adam Lowry scored both goals for the Jets who, with the loss, fall back below .500 after recording their first three-game winning streak of the season. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 23 of 27 in a losing effort. “We didn’t move our feet and that makes it tough in this league,” captain Blake Wheeler said. “The competition is too good when you don’t come ready and that’s what happens. “We weren’t good enough. They came out determined and put us back on our heels and we just weren’t able to get anything going.” With the Avalanche holding a one-goal lead entering the third period, Carl Soderberg put the game on ice with an insurance marker at 2:04. Soderberg wired home a one-timer after getting a great feed from Iginla at the top of the circles. Matt Nieto, who scored earlier in the game as well, found the empty net 38 seconds left. The Avalanche had a 2-1 lead and a 14-7 shot advantage after a one-sided opening period. The Jets, who admittedly had to ratchet up the intensity after a listless opening frame, evened things up with a power-play goal early in the second. Wheeler’s initial blast was turned aside by Pickard, but Lowry followed it up with a strong drive to the net, and after winning a battle in the blue paint, he tapped it home for the second of his two goals. At the other end, Pavelec made a series of incredible saves to keep the Jets in the game when it could (and probably should) have gone sideways, including a stunning around-the-world glove save on a 3-on1 after the Jets got caught pinching at the offensive blue line. But Pavelec couldn’t do it alone. The Avs took a 3-2 lead at 8:03 as Nieto banged home the rebound after a Patrick Wiercioch blast caromed lively off the end boards. “We wanted to finish this trip with two points but it wasn’t our day today,” Pavelec said. “We were still in the game, we could have won it. But we made more mistakes than they did. It wasn’t our day but overall it was a good road trip and now we’re going home.” Iginla drew first blood with a power-play goal at 5:27. With Duchene planted in front, Iginla walked off the half wall and fired a shot through traffic, finding the shelf over Pavelec’s right shoulder. It was a tough start for the Jets, who recorded only one of the first nine shots of the game, but a timely goal off a hard-working, thirdline shift evened the score just a few minutes later. After winning an offensive-zone faceoff, Lowry took the puck out of the corner and bowled his way to the front of the net before tucking a backhander into the open side. The goal was Lowry’s first in the last 21 games. With 5:25 to play, Nathan MacKinnon put the Avalanche back in front. With the fourth out against Colorado’s top unit, Winnipeg failed the clear the zone before MacKinnon found a loose puck in front, swiping it home as bodies littered the blue paint. It was more of the same in the second and third, with the Jets firing only 15 shots in the final two periods, firing only 18 shots for a three-period total of 25 on Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.

WILD JETS

WINNIPEG - The Minnesota Wild may be one of the best teams in the National Hockey League, but on this night, in the opener of a fourgame home stand, the Winnipeg Jets gave them all they could handle. It just wasn’t enough. Three goals on 14 shots before the five-minute mark of the second period proved to be the difference as the Wild jumped out to a 3-0 lead, and held on for a 4-2 win. Bryan Little and Joel Armia scored for Winnipeg. Ondrej Pavelec made 11 saves on 14 shots before suffering a lower-body injury and being replaced by Connor Hellebuyck at 6:15 of the second period. Pavelec did not return, while Hellebuyck stopped all 10 shots he faced in relief. The Jets put up 40 shots and played one of their best games in recent memory, but without the win, there was an obvious, empty feeling in the dressing room and with the head coach following the game. “You’re going to be in a bad mood tomorrow. You’re going to find the things that you don’t like in your game, so it’s not going to be a gentle meeting,” said Paul Maurice. The Jets had a 12-10 lead in shots, but trailed the Wild by a pair on the scoreboard after one period of play. Pominville scored early in the second to give the visitors a 3-0 lead, but the Jets replied just 3:02 later. Jacob Trouba’s blast from the right point was blocked in front, but Little jumped on the rebound and buried a backhander to make it a 3-1 game with his 15th of the year. On a power play just a few minutes later, the Wild defenceman Jared Spurgeon swiped a puck off the goal line as Mark Scheifele dove for it in the blue paint. It was just that close. So, too, was a chance late in the third when Dustin Byfuglien put a puck off the post before it was knocked away by a pair of Minnesota defenders. “There’s a lot of good things we can take out of this game,” Byfuglien said. “We outshot them and played a pretty good game. It’s not the result we wanted but we’ve got to keep taking steps forward.” The Jets made it a one-goal game at 16:41 of the third as Armia scored his fourth of the year and first in eight games, firing a shot from the top of the circle that handcuffed Devan Dubnyk and beat him upstairs over the left shoulder. Minnesota was awarded a penalty shot just moments later when Byfuglien shot the discarded stick of Jason Zucker at Mikael Granlund. After some discussion, Granlund took the shot, but Hellebuyck outwaited him and he lost the handle in tight as he attempted the Forsberg deke. The Jets were in full control, pouring on the pressure and outshooting the Wild 16-6 in the middle frame. Nino Niederreiter opened the scoring for the Wild at 11:51 of the first period. Niederreiter took the puck down the left side, toe-dragged at the top of the circles and ripped a quick shot through a defender and over the glove to score his team-leading 16th of the year. Pominville put the Wild up by two with only 41 seconds left, bombing a shot from the right circle just under the arm of Pavelec, who got a small piece of it en route. The Jets were the better team overall in the period, but Dubnyk made 12 saves to keep the Wild in front “We didn’t have a great start, but I thought we turned it on and did some good things, regardless of the score,” Blake Wheeler said. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

P JETS BLACKHAWKS JETS

WINNIPEG - In many ways, it was a complete reversal of fortune. In their previous four meetings, the Jets allowed only five goals and were the dominant team in the win column as a result, grabbing all four on the strength of some timely goal scoring. This time, it was the Jets who were stifled offensively, while visitors finally found their touch around the Winnipeg net, as the Blackhawks took a 5-2 decision on Friday at MTS Centre. It was a one-goal game for much of the night, but Duncan Keith put the Blackhawks ahead by two with 2:59 to play before a pair of empty-netters turned an otherwise close game into a lopsided contest on the scoreboard late in the third period. Adam Lowry scored late to make a bit closer, but the damage had been done. The Blackhawks’ trio of Patrick Kane, Artemi Panarin and Artem Anisimov combined for seven points (3G, 4A) in the victory. Bryan Little had the other goal for the Jets, while Connor Hellebuyck stopped 31 of 34 in an all-around excellent performance to give his team a chance. The Jets have now lost three straight, but will look to snap the skid on Saturday when the Tampa Bay Lightning make their only visit to Winnipeg this season. “We’re desperate for points right now and we need to get on a roll. We’re all glad to put this one behind us and try to get a win tomorrow.” Trailing 1-0 entering the middle frame, the Jets evened things up just 1:43 in. Crawford made the initial save on Toby Enstrom’s long bomb from the left point, but Little, who made a great play as he contended with the sprawling netminder, banged it home at the side of the net as he tumbled to the ice. With nine goals in his last 10 games, Little is now up to 16 on the year in this, his 34th game. Patrik Laine picked up the second assist. “I thought we had a bit of a slow start,” Little said. “They came out really hungry and had a lot of the play early in the game, and got that goal. I thought we did a good job in the second and third battling back and getting our chances and making it a close game, but we just couldn’t generate a lot with the goalie (pulled).” Slowly, Chicago took back the game and at 12:16 after applying some pressure in the offensive zone, the enemy’s efforts paid off. Panarin hammered a shot into the pads after getting a great pass from Kane, but Anisimov was there to clean up the rebound, roofing a shot in tight as he fended off a check in the blue paint to give the Hawks a 2-1 lead. The Jets came within inches of tying things up late in the period as a Wheeler shot snuck through the wickets, but Brent Seabrook hurried to the scene and swiped the puck off the goal line. Kane opened the scoring for the Blackhawks with his 18th of the year, from Panarin, at 15:37 of the first period. Panarin jumped on a loose puck after Blake Wheeler fumbled it near the benches, took down the far side and fed Kane with a great pass to the right circle. Kane made no mistake, firing a one-timer low and off the near bar past Hellebuyck. Hellebuyck, who was making his first start since Jan. 26 in Chicago, was otherwise unbeatable in the period, stopping 15 shots in all, including 10 in the first 11 minutes. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

LIGHTNING JETS

WINNIPEG - The Jets, after dropping a 4-1 decision to the Tampa Bay Lightning, have now lost four straight games. “No. Definitely not,” said Mathieu Perreault when asked if the Jets played with enough urgency. “Our season is on the line here. … We have to come up with wins. We’re going to have to find a way in here, together. We’ve got to battle harder and it’s going to take everybody.” Trailing 3-0 late in the third period, Jacob Trouba broke the shutout with 8:45 to play, firing a beautiful shot over Ben Bishop from the top of the right circle after getting a great feed from Dustin Byfuglien, but that was all the Jets were able to produce offensively. Victor Hedman scored into the empty net at 19:24 to ice a 4-1 final. Connor Hellebuyck made 26 saves as his record falls to 17-15-1. The Jets were heavily outplayed early on, surrendering two goals and 14 shots against in a “lifeless” opening 20. Unfortunately for the Jets, it didn’t improve much, if any, over the course of the night. “I ran the bench real hard last night and it looked like it,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “You fire out that word ‘desperation,’ but you’ve got to learn how to play desperate first. We got stripped, out-battled and out-’quicked’ on just about every puck through 30 minutes of that hockey game. “They were just better than we were.” Brayden Point opened the scoring for the Bolts off some incredible work by the speedy Jonathan Drouin at 12:05. Drouin, a former teammate of Nikolaj Ehlers in Halifax of the QMJHL, showed great speed after stealing the puck from Blake Wheeler, turning and burning around the right side before dishing out front to Point, who tucked it home at the doorstep. The Lightning opened up a two-goal lead with 2:58 to play in the period as Brian Boyle redirected a Hedman shot from up top at the centre point, beating a screened Hellebuyck clean on the glove side. “The things that have gone well for us all year, they’re not going right now,” said captain Blake Wheeler. “We’ve got to find a way to make something happen. When you’re fastball isn’t going, you’ve got to find a way to spend some time in the offensive zone.” The Jets went nearly eight minutes without a shot, while the Lightning put up nine and scored both of their first-period markers. Ondrej Palat gave the Lightning a 3-0 lead 2:10 into the second as he picked the blocker-side corner with a great shot off the rush. Moments later, Drouin, who was a force all night, rattled a shot off the iron on a similar play on the opposite side. The Jets outshot the Bolts 13-6 in the final frame, but by then the damage had been done. “It’s that time of year where we’ve got to be playing desperate,” said defenceman Ben Chiarot, who logged a season-high 26:53 in ice time. (Toby Enstrom left early in the first period after suffering a lower-body injury, so the Jets played more than 57 minutes with only five defenceman.) “Guys are working hard, but at this time of year, working hard isn’t enough,” he continued. “You’ve got to get it done, otherwise you’re sitting at home in April watching the playoffs. … You fall too far out of the picture, you’re going to be out of before you know it.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

STARS JETS

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets understand better than anyone that it’s a long road back after losing the ground they did over the past week, but after knocking off the Dallas Stars on Tuesday at MTS Centre, they can sleep easy knowing they’ve taken a step in the right direction. They looked, as Head Coach Paul Maurice put it during his post-game conference, as they should. A little star power doesn’t hurt, either. Eighteen-year-old Patrik Laine scored goals No. 24, 25 and 26 for his third-career hat trick to lead the Jets past the Stars 5-2, snapping a four-game losing streak for the club. Laine broke a 2-2 tie with 5:07 to play before scoring into the empty net from 150 feet out with just over a minute left. “We had a serious meeting with the team after the (Tampa) game and we just figured that we have to work hard and be pretty simple on the ice, and we managed to do that pretty well today,” Laine said. “It’s always nice to score. It was a huge game for me and linemates and the whole team. These last four games haven’t been that good, so it was nice to have a game like this.” On the winner, the rookie showed some quick hands, toe-dragging at the edge of the circle after Mark Scheifele won the offensive-zone draw, and with a quick flick on the forehand, he beat Niemi with a laser over the left shoulder. “I only saw the overheard view from the bench and I couldn’t find the puck when it went past the goalie,” Maurice said of the winning goal. “That release is extraordinary.” Blake Wheeler (EN, in similar fashion to Laine) and Joel Armia scored the others for Winnipeg, while Connor Hellebuyck made 34 saves. The Jets opened up a two-goal lead before the 10-minute mark of the second period, but the Stars answered right back with two in under five minutes to even the late in the middle frame. Just 1:05 after Armia gave the Jets a commanding 2-0 lead, Jamie Benn - uncovered at the side of the net - beat Hellebuyck five-hole after getting the feed from Jason Spezza. Tyler Seguin then evened things up with a power-play goal at 13:35 as he fired a seeing-eye wrister through traffic, cleanly beating Hellebuyck low on the blocker side. Besides that, the Jets had one of their better efforts in recent memory, and it was needed. “We battled hard, competed, (we) blocked shots. … This one was a hard-fought, 2-2 going into the third, playoff-type, must-win game,” Maurice said. “Us having more pressure in the way we played at home and recently, it was a great game.” Laine drew first blood for the Jets with his 24th of the year off a great feed from Andrew Copp at 15:04 of the opening frame. On a 2-on-1 created by Scheifele, Copp outwaited the fallen defender, Jamie Oleksiak, and rolled wide before delivering a marvellous pass across the goalmouth. Laine made no mistake, driving it home at the lip of the blue paint. The Jets opened up a two-goal lead at 7:38 as Armia picked up his fifth of the year with the wrister from the high slot. Shawn Matthias took the puck down the right wall before feathering a backhand pass to the middle and right on the tape of his linemate. “You just have to be ready from the start,” Laine said. “Maybe some of the games I wasn’t ready, like Tampa. Tonight, I felt it right away that I was on my game. It’s way easier to (play) and get those scoring chances when you are.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

JETS PENGUINS

PITTSBURGH, PA - The Winnipeg Jets had to be at their best to have a chance against the defending Stanley Cup champions. On a night when history could be made, like it was Thursday at PPG Paints Arena, even more so. Backed by the 44 saves of goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and Sidney Crosby’s winning goal with only 21.1 seconds left in overtime, the Penguins took a 4-3 decision in a thrilling, back-and-forth, physical affair in downtown Pittsburgh. “The compete was so high, the checks got finished, the battle on pucks was real good,” said Maurice. “There were lots of chances to score, and good goaltending kept (us) from scoring. We’ll think about the chances in overtime, for sure, but real good battle. It was a really hard-fought game. Dustin Byfuglien gave the Jets a 3-2 lead with 11:36 to play, and for a while it looked like that would be enough, but Phil Kessel tied things up for the Pens with a power-play goal at 13:55. The Jets had all kinds of chances in overtime, including three 2-on-1’s and a breakaway chance by Nikolaj Ehlers, but Fleury stood tall. Crosby recorded his 1,000th career point with an assist on Chris Kunitz’s first-period goal. He is the 86th player in NHL history to accomplish this feat, and he is the 12th to do it, recording the milestone in just 757 career games. Patrik Laine and Paul Postma scored the others for Winnipeg, while Connor Hellebuyck - was excellent in this back-and-forth affair stopped 35. Laine got Winnipeg on the board, cutting the deficit to one with his 27th of the year at 17:09 of the second, after some great work by Mathieu Perreault and Mark Scheifele gave him a free look at the side of the net. He, of course, made no mistake after a diving Perreault set him up at the far side, plunging a shot past Fleury to put him back into a tie with Auston Matthews for the rookie lead in goals. Scheifele came close to tying it less than a minute later off a splendid solo effort, but after beating the defenceman with a tricky deke through the middle, Fleury came up with an incredible save as he kicked out the left pad a la Bill Ranford after losing an edge on the shuffle across. But the Jets, fighting for their lives, were undeterred. Postma knotted the game at two at 4:23 of the third with a slapper through traffic from the right point, beating Fleury clean past the glove for his first of the year. Evgeni Malkin drew first blood for the Penguins only 59 seconds into the game, after a series of miscues turned a routine defensive-zone breakout into a game of hot potato. Ben Chiarot tried to clear the puck up the middle after Hellebuyck mishandled a Pittsburgh dump, but he put it right on the stick of the former 50-goal scorer, who fired it home from the top of the circles. The Pens opened up a two-goal lead at 6:28 as Crosby, who made a great play to steal the puck from Blake Wheeler, fed Kunitz for the one-timer, beating Hellebuyck five-hole for his ninth of the year and ‘Sid the Kid’s’ 1,000th career point. Only a few Penguins came onto the ice to congratulate their captain, but the moment was properly adorned at the next TV timeout, when a tribute video played on the scoreboard. Both benches rose to their feet and tapped their sticks, and the more than 18,000 on hand unleashed a deafening roar. Shots on goal favoured the home side 16-10 after one, but it was all Winnipeg after that. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

JETS CANADIENS

MONTREAL, QC - If Paul Maurice and the Winnipeg Jets could bottle the effort they’ve put in, and the surgical precision with which they’ve executed over the past three nights - culminating in a 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday afternoon - they’d take it today, tomorrow and 82 times a year. “The players understand that you’re going to lose games, but it’s about (not) losing confidence,” Maurice said following the game at the Bell Centre. “When we left that [Pittsburgh] game, you don’t lose a thing. You feel terrible because you put a lot into it, but they didn’t walk away playing any less confident - probably even more confident because even in an overtime loss, they were walking out of there saying ‘That’s what we’re capable of doing on a nightly basis and that’s our challenge.’” Challenge accepted. Unlike the Pittsburgh game, the Jets got the full two points they deserved this time around. “It’s a continuation,” Maurice said. “We’ve had three really strong games and it was more of the same tonight.” Drummondville native Mathieu Perreault broke a 1-1 tie with his fifth of the year 1:15 into the third period, and Patrik Laine scored into the empty net with 1:17 to play. Joel Armia potted the other for Winnipeg, while Connor Hellebuyck made 19 saves. Dustin Byfuglien made a sensational play to make the winning goal possible, driving the net and kicking the puck between his legs in front to Perreault, who chopped it home on the backhand for the eventual game winner. “When you’ve got 12 guys turned back on the bench looking at the TV monitor, that’s pretty special,” Maurice said, adding with a laugh: “I haven’t seen a lot of one-handed inside toe drags with your back foot into the slot … But he’s the one guy that’s capable of doing it.” Trailing 1-0 entering the second period despite having a significant shot lead, the Jets evened the score with a beautiful shorthanded goal at 4:52. Armia, who’s had more of an offensive dimension to his game in recent weeks, made a great play to break up the Montreal entry before turning it back the other way. In alone, he made a hard cut at the lip of the blue ice, beating Price with a filthy move on the forehand to pot the equalizer. Armia now has six on the year, and two in his last three games. Hellebuyck, while not overly busy, was excellent when called upon. Among the nine shots he faced in the second, there were at least three showstoppers, including a magnificent post-to-post effort on Nathan Beaulieu that kept the game knotted at one during a Montreal power play. The Jets were by far the better team in the opening frame, recording 15 of the 21 shots in the period, but a bad bounce in their own end led to the Canadiens’ opening goal at 11:04, forcing Winnipeg to play from behind for the second straight game. A Ben Chiarot bank pass took a funny hop off the boards and was picked off at the corner Zamboni gate, giving the Habs all kinds of time to orchestrate a play down low. The puck eventually founds its way to Andrei Markov, who drilled home his fourth of the year off a great feed from Max Pacioretty at the side of the net to put the Canadiens up 1-0. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

OTTAWA, ON - From the moment Mathieu Perreault was put on the top line with Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine, a lot of good things have happened for the Winnipeg Jets offensively. With points in each of his last three, Perreault has rediscovered his touch around the net, Scheifele has had three multi-point efforts, and Laine - the sharp-shooting wunderkind - has had his pursuit of the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie kick into overdrive. Most importantly, these three were a big reason the team picked up a second straight win, and third in the past four games, on Sunday in Ottawa. Perreault, Dustin Byfuglien and Josh Morrissey had the goals, while Scheifele and Laine contributing two assists in a 3-2 win at Canadian Tire Centre. Connor Hellebuyck was excellent once again, stopping 32 of 34 in the win. “It’s fun for me to play with those guys,” Perreault said. “They’re top players in this league and anyone who’s playing with them is going to get some chances. … It’s crazy how this game goes sometimes.” In addition to playing such a key role offensively, the trio was deployed in the final minute to protect the one-goal lead. “(Scheifele) and (Laine) have been going so well,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “Patty can get the puck into the middle to Mark … and Matty Perreault brings so much energy and confidence. (Perreault) back on the puck, he plays like a guy twice his size and they need that, they need that intensity on the puck. They looked good. They looked fast and they had good hands going tonight.” Laine now has a rookie high 52 points (28G, 24A) in only 52 games, while Scheifele is now up to 60 (25G, 35A) on the year, and is only away from tying a career high with a quarter of the campaign left to play. With the Jets leading 2-1, the teams traded goals early in the third. Morrissey floated one through from the left-centre point, beating Condon high over the right shoulder after it changed direction off Cody Ceci in front to make it 3-1, but the Sens got it right back off the foot of Zack Smith just 2:31 later. The Jets opened the scoring only 1:09 into the contest as Byfuglien took a feed from Mark Scheifele and unloaded from the top of the right circle, beating Condon high on the glove side for his ninth of the year. The Jets opened up a two-goal lead at 12:28 as Perreault, with help from Laine and Scheifele, banged home a loose puck at the lip of the blue paint after hemming the Sens in their own end for nearly a minute. Perreault, who scored the winning goal in a 3-1 win Saturday in Montreal, created some chaos down low with a big hit on Derick Brassard before going to the net, retrieving the puck and sweeping it home on the backhand, giving him goals in back-to-back games for the first time this season. While things were certainly going right for the Jets offensively, they were giving plenty of chances the other way, and 10 saves from Hellebuyck - along with a couple of Winnipeg bounces - kept the visitors in front after a fast-paced opening frame. Ottawa cut the deficit in half with a power-play goal at 5:09 of the second. Moments after the Sens rifled a shot off the post, Winnipeg native Mark Stone took a pass in the high slot and fired it over Hellebuyck’s left shoulder to make it a 2-1 game. The Senators outshot the Jets 15-7 in the third, but Winnipeg hung on for the victory. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

TORONTO, ON - Jake Gardiner scored 2:29 into overtime, and Matthews had three helpers along the way, to give the Leafs a 5-4 win. Laine, meanwhile, scored twice to help the Jets earn a valuable extra point, sending the club home with a 2-0-2 record on this four-game road trip. Bryan Little and Nikolaj Ehlers had the other goals for Winnipeg, while Connor Hellebuyck made 32 saves. “I don’t think either team felt that they could get a handle on the game,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “I can’t remember the last time I saw that many icings in one game. For our part we didn’t look quite the way we’ve looked on this trip, and we didn’t transition particularly smoothly and never got that neutral zone speed going. It was a bit of a grinder, a bit of a dog in some ways. There were lots of goals but not a whole lot of plays made by either team.” The Jets, though, have to be happy about the six points they gathered over the past week, putting them in the hunt for a wild-card playoff spot with 20 games to play. “I think we’ve kind of re-established our game a little bit,” said captain Blake Wheeler. “We seem to have everyone pushing in the same direction and when we do that, we’re a tough team to play against.” With the two tallies, Laine now owns the franchise record for goals in a rookie season, surpassing Ilya Kovalchuk’s 29-goal, 2001-02 campaign. Laine’s 54 points leads all rookies, as he has now established a three-point separation between himself and Matthews and four fewer games. Mark Scheifele, meanwhile, after recording a pair of helpers, is now up to 62 points on the year, tying the career-high he set last year with 20 games left to play. With the Jets leading 4-3 in the third, William Nylander tied the game with the Leafs’ third PPG of the night, slamming home the rebound after Matthews’ blast caromed off the end boards. The Jets built up a 2-1 lead in the first period, but were on their heels throughout - a theme that carried over into the second. The Leafs tied the game twice in the final five minute of the period, but as they did early in the opening frame, the Jets were quick to reply both times. Ehlers gave his team a 3-2 lead - snapping an eight-game goal drought - with a sweet redirection at 17:24, and just 31 seconds after Leo Komarov scored a power-play goal to tie things up, Laine put the Jets back in front with a wicked shot from the top of the circles. With two Leafs concerning themselves with Dustin Byfuglien down low, Scheifele dished out to Laine, who picked the far corner on Andersen with nothing but daylight in front of him. “We don’t talk to Patty anymore. We just talk to everyone else and tell them to give him the puck,” said Maurice with a smile. It was a tough start for the Jets, who surrendered a Komarov goal in the opening minute, but they responded well after purging some early jitters. Laine and the Jets replied at 4:25, on a play we’ve seen so many times this year, as the rookie took a beautiful feed from Scheifele and rifled a one-timer past Andersen from the top of the left circle, stunning everyone - including the goalie - at the sold-out ACC. The Jets took a 2-1 lead with a power-play goal at 10:33 as Little crashed the net and shovelled home the rebound from a Dustin Byfuglien point shot, giving the veteran 17 on the year. The Jets will now have five days off before returning to action next Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WILD JETS

WINNIPEG - In a game that featured all four goaltenders, the Winnipeg Jets rallied from 3-1 and 5-2 deficits to tie the game midway through the third period, but Jason Zucker scored the go-ahead goal with 2:10 to play to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 6-5 win in a wildly entertaining divisional matchup. The Jets, who were firing on all cylinders offensively, just couldn’t outscore their many defensive miscues any longer after a 57-minute slugfest with one of the NHL’s best. “When you’ve got the puck on your stick, you need to move to break it out into position and we turned those pucks over,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “It wasn’t a matter of them getting it and rattling it around on us. They took it - well, we gave it to them - and they put it quickly into the back of our net.” “Our season is on the line. We’ve got to win games,” Mathieu Perreault, who was one of five different goal-scorers for the Jets on this night, said in a sullen post-game scrum. The Jets trailed 5-3 entering the third period, but scored twice in under two minutes midway through to tie the game at five. Joel Armia got things rolling with a shorthanded goal at 9:35, firing a long shot off the end glass and having it bounce in off the back of the goaltender. Then, at 11:17, Mark Scheifele scored for the dramatic equalizer, gunning a shot over Minnesota goalie Darcy Kuemper from the top of the right circle after getting a pretty feed from Perreault off the rush. A wide-open Zucker took a backdoor feed from Erik Haula before rifling a shot five-hole at 17:50 to secure a 6-5 victory for the road team. Perreault, Armia, Scheifele, Patrik Laine and Adam Lowry supplied all the offence for Winnipeg. Mikael Granlund led the way with three points (1G, 2A) for Minnesota, while Devan Dubnyk picked up the win, stopping all seven shots he faced after Kuemper was pulled in the third. Laine drew first blood for the Jets off a great feed from Scheifele only a minute into the game. Scheifele won a battle with Ryan Suter down low before finding Laine with a great pass out front. The rookie made no mistake, slapping it off balance past Kuemper for the game’s opening tally. Granlund’s team-leading 21st of the year tied things up for the Wild just as quickly, though, as the Finn took a breakaway pass from Mikko Koivu and made a slick move in tight to go bar down on Hellebuyck. Granlund went back to work late in the period as he picked up an all-worldly assist on Tyler Graovac’s go-ahead goal. Then, at 18:41, he singlehandedly set up Haula for a power-play goal to give the Wild a commanding 3-1 lead on just their eighth shot of the game. Granlund took the puck with speed through the neutral zone, pushing back the Winnipeg defence before dishing off and driving the net. Looking to find Granlund in front, Haula’s attempted pass across the blue paint went off Hellebuyck’s arm and in. The teams tallied twice each in the middle frame, preserving Minnesota’s two-goal lead after 40 minutes. Marco Scandella wired a shot from the point through traffic to make it a 4-1 game at 8:03, but Lowry got it right back off a jam play at the side of the net about a minute-and-a-half later. Ryan White restored the two-goal cushion with a slippery shot off the rush at 13:19, but, once again, the Jets answered back. Perreault did a great job creating separation in front before getting a pass from Wheeler and finding the open side past Kuemper. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have been preaching it for some time now, but with one of the teams they’re chasing - the St. Louis Blues - on the other side facing similar obstacles, but with a handful of games in hand, there was no room for error. So they didn’t make any. Two goals from Blake Wheeler, another from Bryan Little, and 29 saves from Connor Hellebuyck led the Jets to an impeccable 3-0 win in front of a boisterous Friday night crowd at MTS Centre. The Jets are now only four points back of the Los Angeles Kings for the second and final wild-card playoff spot. “The importance of this game was evident throughout the last two days of practice,” Wheeler said. “After that Minny game there was a sour taste in the room. We didn’t really play our best game but we had an opportunity to salvage something. At this time of year you can’t miss out on those opportunities. I really liked our practice the day after that. That might have been an easy one to maybe take off, lick your wounds and watch some video, but we got after it and it really set the table for tonight’s game.” With the Jets leading 1-0 with 2:15 left in the third period, Little showed great hustle to chase down a loose puck, lifting the stick of Blues defenceman Alex Pietrangelo before stuffing it into the empty net to secure the victory. With Carter Hutton still on the bench, Wheeler rounded out the scoring with a bouncer from centre at 18:51. Jacob Trouba drew back into the lineup after serving a two-game suspension, and he did not miss a beat. The 23-year-old was easily the best player on the ice, recording an assist, two shots and a game-high six hits in nearly 25 minutes of ice time. “Jake started well this year and continued to build, and build and build,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “He was a dominant force on the ice. He as physical along the boards, he was skating up the ice and now he’s on the power play. We missed him drastically. You don’t want to say that as a coach when he’s out, but having him back with Josh (Morrissey), that’s a hell of a young pair on D.” Wheeler opened the scoring for the Jets with a power-play goal at 10:51 of the first, blowing a one-timer through traffic from well out at the centre point. Winnipeg showed some excellent puck movement prior to the goal, the result of a new umbrella power-play structure that sees Wheeler up top, while Mathieu Perreault and Dustin Byfuglien distribute off the half walls. The Jets were all over the Blues in the middle frame, and had multiple chances to extend the lead in the first 10 minutes alone. Wheeler had the best one of all as he worked the give-and-go on a 2-on-1 with Nikolaj Ehlers, but he rifled a shot off the far post. Overall, and after trading a pair of odd-man breaks on a late Blues power play, the Jets outshot the visitors 19-8 in the period. Hellebuyck, who wasn’t overly busy through two, locked it down in the third. “I felt really good the last game, but they got five and that’s not OK,” he said. “The fact that I felt good, I knew that I was going to bounce back, that I was playing the right way and that I’m going to continue to play the right way. Having this game right after is key because it showed everyone that I do have what it takes.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

AVALANCHE JETS

WINNIPEG - Twenty-four hours after silencing the Blues with a clinical 3-0 victory, Connor Hellebuyck and the Jets did the same to another divisional opponent, pummelling the Colorado Avalanche 6-1 to pull within two points of a playoff spot. The Jets got contributions from six different goal-scorers - Patrik Laine, Blake Wheeler, Mark Scheifele, Ben Chiarot, Nikolaj Ehlers and Jacob Trouba - while Hellebuyck made 22 saves, and was 15.4 seconds away from a second straight shutout, but a Gabriel Landeskog goal spoiled the party. Still, it was a big two points for the Jets and as Hellebuyck said postgame, that’s all that matters no matter no crummy the feeling was for him personally afterward. Wheeler (1G, 2A), Ehlers (1G, 2A), Laine (1G, 1A) and Dustin Byfuglien (2A) led the way offensively for the Jets, who improved to 30-30-6. Laine got things rolling with a scorcher from the right circle only 4:21 in. The rookie took a neutral-ice feed from Mathieu Perreault, entered the zone and curled off the Colorado D, opening a lane and putting himself in a prime shooting position. The ensuing slap shot went off the stick of Matt Duchene and rocketed high over the shoulder of Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard. The Jets opened up a two-goal lead at 9:45, using the new power play alignment they engineered over the course of the week at practice. Wheeler, who scored from the top of the umbrella in Friday’s win over the Blues, took it off the half wall this time, firing a beautiful just under the bar on the goalie’s glove side. “There’s always good energy in our building but there was a real good buzz in here tonight. You could feel it right down the bench,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. The Jets, it appeared, were only just getting warmed up. They struck again only 16 seconds later as the kids went to work off the rush, orchestrating a sweet, three-way passing play that began with Ehlers going coast-to-coast down the near boards. When the pass came, Laine froze Pickard with a ridiculous fake shot before dishing to Scheifele, who made no mistake at the far post. The Jets outshot the Avalanche 14-3 in a completely one-sided opening period. It was more of the same in the second. Chiarot’s first of the season put the Jets up by four at 7:03, as he found himself in alone and showed great patience after getting a beautiful feed from Ehlers, outwaiting the goaltender and lifting a backhander upstairs. The Jets were showing all kinds of creativity in the offensive zone, with another batch of elite stick work leading to the 5-0 goal at 9:05. This time it was Ehlers on the receiving end, tucking home his 21st of the year off a tremendous backdoor pass by the captain. That was the end of the night for Pickard, who was replaced by Jeremy Smith between the pipes. “Our second period was at least as good as our first,” Maurice added. “We didn’t score as many, but it was solid. Their push came but we handled it very well.” Trouba rounded out the scoring for Winnipeg late in the third when he gathered up his own rebound off the end glass and stuffed it short side after the Avalanche were caught on a bad line change. Landeskog broke the shutout with only a few ticks left on the clock. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

SHARKS JETS

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets hope that in five weeks from now, they won’t look back on this as the one that got away. It was right there for the taking, as the Jets played a sound, physical game against one of the league heavyweights, until a third-period power play went awry and all but ruined the Jets’ hopes of securing at least one point in the wild-card playoff race. The Jets outshot the Sharks 33-30 and we’re the better team in stretches, but 31 saves from San Jose goalie Aaron Dell proved to be the difference as the Sharks prevailed 3-2. “We played hard,” said defenceman Josh Morrissey, who had one of Winnipeg’s two goals on the night. “We did a lot of the right things and at this time of the year, it comes to those little bounces and those little details in games. We would have liked to close it out the right way in the third, but I think our game is in the right place right now. There’s no sense in dwelling on games, we’ve got to move on to the next one. … We’re not happy with the result, but we understand that we have to move forward here and have a short-term memory.” Mikkel Boedker broke a 1-1 tie with a shorthanded goal at 7:26 of the third period. Patrik Laine gave the puck away at the blue line, and after pulling away in a 125-foot race down the ice, Boedker made no mistake, firing a shot over the blocker and under the bar to give the Sharks a 2-1 lead. Joe Pavelski scored into the empty net with 26 seconds left, with help from Joe Thornton who tallied his 1,000th career assist in the process, while Mark Scheifele added one in garbage time to ice a 3-2 final. “We’ll deal with it tomorrow and try to put it behind us so we’re not carrying it more than one day,” Maurice said. “It’s going to be a tougher day. It will be a quiet start to tomorrow and then we’ll get them fired back up. You can’t carry (losses) for too long. We’ve got to get the energy back up tomorrow.” Pavelski scored on a rebound in tight to give the Sharks a 1-0 lead at 9:45 of the first, but the Jets got it right back less than two minutes later as Morrissey unloaded the top of the left circle, beating Aaron Dell clean over the shoulder to even the score. The unassisted goal was Morrissey’s fourth on the year and 17th point, after the Sharks failed to clear the zone, giving the defenceman all kinds to time to walk in and tee it up through traffic. The Jets were far and away the better team in the opening 20, outshooting the Sharks 13-7 while getting the majority of the scoring chances and five-on-five shot attempts (25-13). The Sharks had the upper hand in the middle frame, though, but Hellebuyck stole the show, stopping 16 in the period as the visitors jumped out a 23-20 lead on the shot clock. Marc-Edouard Vlasic had the best chance for the go-ahead goal on a mid-period power play, but his blast from the near hash caught iron, keeping the game in a 1-1 draw. “We had a shift in the second period where we had an awful lot of offensive zone time, but from that point on there was a good 20 minutes where we didn’t put the puck at the net nearly enough,” Maurice said. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

PENGUINS JETS

WINNIPEG - The Pittsburgh Penguins used a four-goal second period - including three in a 57-second span - a hat trick by Nick Bonino and a three-point (2G, 1A) night from Evgeni Malkin to score a 7-4 win at MTS Centre, putting a major dent in the Jets’ teetering playoff hopes. Shawn Matthias, Nikolaj Ehlers, Dustin Byfuglien & Marko Dano had the goals for Winnipeg. Connor Hellebuyck was pulled after allowing five goals on 15 shots. Michael Hutchinson stopped 15 of 17 in the final 30 minutes. The Jets had a strong start, and were either on top or tied for the entire first half of the game, but a couple of power-play markers 20 seconds apart, and a third at evens only 37 seconds after that, gave the Penguins a commanding 5-3 lead by the midway point of the second period. Back-to-back penalties to Bryan Little and Ben Chiarot gave the Pens a 1:13-long 5-on-3, and the Jets could not come up with a kill on either of the two manpower advantages. Malkin rounded out the scoring in that meek, near minute-long span off a pass from Carl Hagelin at 10:06 to put the Jets - who recorded eight of the first 10 shots in the period - in a hole that was about to get even bigger. Bonino completed the hat trick at 18:32 with a blistering shot from the near circle for the Penguins’ third PPG of the game. The Jets built a 3-2 lead and a 14-11 shot advantage after a crazy and thoroughly entertaining opening period that saw teams combine for the 44 penalty minutes. Tom Sestito was ejected for an illegal check from behind that knocked Toby Enstrom out of the game. Enstrom was taken to the hospital and was being treated for possible facial fractures, according to Maurice. The coach was none too pleased with the action of Sestito, who was recalled earlier today after spending the past three-and-a-half months in the minors. “He wasn’t called up to dangle,” Maurice said. “We’re going to lose a good defenceman for a while.” With the crowd buzzing, Matthias opened the scoring for the Jets at 4:19, but Bonino tied things up for the Pens only 24 seconds later. Matthias made a beautiful move in tight, going backhand shelf on Pittsburgh goalie Matt Murray after getting a great pass from Adam Lowry on an odd-man break. The goal snapped a season-long 15-game drought for the winger, giving him eight on the year. Bonino got it right back, though, firing a weak one from the near boards through traffic and over the screened Hellebuyck’s right shoulder. Moments after an Andrew Copp ‘goal’ was washed out due to goaltender interference, the Jets put one on the board for good as Ehlers wired home his 22nd of the year. With the speed down the left side, the sophomore bombed a 35-foot, seeing-eye slap shot bar down to give the Jets a 2-1 lead. But like they did earlier in the period, the Pens were quick to reply. Malkin took a breakaway pass from Phil Kessel and made no mistake in alone, tossing a shot just under to blocker to even the score at 11:56. At 16:09, Mark Scheifele made a strong play off the rush and got a great shot from a high-danger area. Murray knocked it down with the glove, but was unable to corral the rebound, giving Byfuglien a free crack at it in tight. The big man bowled his way through the blue paint and jammed it upstairs for his 10th of the year. Unfortunately for the Jets, the positives ended there.

WINNIPEG - It was only a week ago that the Winnipeg Jets were celebrating a second straight win on this very same ice, pulling themselves to within three points of the final playoff spot after a convincing 6-1 thrashing of the Colorado Avalanche. Oh, how things change. The Jets have lost all three since, including Saturday’s 3-0 setback at the hands of the Calgary Flames, and are looking up at a nine-point deficit between them and the St. Louis, who hold down that final wild-card berth. “You don’t really feel like you’re in these games,” said captain Blake Wheeler. “You’re playing from behind all the time now and it makes it really difficult, especially when things aren’t going well and guys aren’t feeling good about themselves, to really get anything going when you’re just always behind by a goal or two, and sometimes three, it’s tough.” The Jets trailed 2-0 after 40 minutes, but had zero push in the final frame. Alex Chiasson put the Flames up by three at 3:24, and Brian Elliott stopped all nine shots he faced in the period (31 overall) to record his second straight shutout. The Flames have now won nine straight games and have overtaken the Edmonton Oilers for second in the Pacific Division. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 26 for the Jets. “Certainly there’s disappointment and it looked like we were carrying it around on the ice. It looked like that in the third,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. Mikael Backlund opened the scoring for the Flames with a power-play goal at 15:05 of the first. With Ben Chiarot off serving an interference penalty, Dougie Hamilton walked in from the right point and rifled a shot off the near post. The rebound went right to Backlund at the side of the net, and he made no mistake, swatting it home on the backhand for his 21st of the year. The Jets were the better team in the early part of the second, firing eight of the first 10 shots in the period on Elliott, but for the second straight game, penalty trouble midway through swung the momentum in Calgary’s favour. The visitors open up a two-goal lead with their second PPG of the night, 12:09 in. A Hamilton point shot was knocked down in the blue paint, and after Matthew Tkachuk swung wildly and was turned aside on a second chance in tight, former Jet Michael Frolik hit pay dirt, putting it up over the glove from four feet out. Chiarot was in the box for the this one as well, serving the back half of a double minor for high-sticking Sean Monahan in the neutral zone. While penalties have been a major issue for the Jets in recent games, the penalty kill could have bailed them out from time to time, but it hasn’t. The Jets have now allowed five power-play goals in the last two games. “Even if your penalty kill is outstanding, we had eight minutes of high-sticking penalties in the second period. I mean, [if you kill them off], maybe it gives you a better chance to win, but our penalty kill has clearly been a problem for us. “We went 10 minutes in that second period and we were right and on our game and we got the ice tilted. Then we spent the rest of the period in the penalty box.” Every time it looked Winnipeg was about get something going, a back-breaking play was waiting to happen on the other side. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

NASHVILLE, TN - James Neal scored the winning goal on a power play 2:11 into overtime as the Nashville Predators posted a 5-4 victory over the Jets at Bridgestone Arena. The game featured plenty of offence, in part due to the multitude of shaky defensive breakdowns and odd-man rushes each way. The Jets built up a two-goal lead, lost it, then battled back with a pair of unanswered goals, only to lose it again when it mattered most, despite firing 34 shots on Predators goalie Pekka Rinne. With the OT loss, the Jets’ record falls to 30-33-7 on the year. Wheeler, Dustin Byfuglien, Patrik Laine and Joel Armia supplied the offence for Winnipeg, while Connor Hellebuyck made 37 saves. The Jets carried a 4-3 lead into the third period, but Ryan Johansen tied the game with a one-timer off a great feed from Filip Forsberg at 4:23. Hellebuyck had no chance on the play, but nearly came up with the save anyway as slid across and got a piece of the shot, just not enough. The Jets opened up a two-goal lead early in the first period, but the Predators battled back to even the score late, before taking a 3-2 lead on a Forsberg tally only 19 seconds into the middle frame. But this time it was Winnipeg’s turn to respond after coughing up a 2-0 advantage earlier in the game. Nikolaj Ehlers made a great pass over to Laine on a partial odd-man break, and the rookie made no mistake, firing a shot bar down from the top of the right circle to tie the game at three. Laine is now up to 33 goals on the year as he continues to lead the rookie-scoring race by five points over Toronto’s Auston Matthews. Laine had a chance to end the game with an incredible solo effort early in overtime, but Rinne closed the wickets in the nick of time. Armia put the Jets back on top with his eighth of the year at 8:39, as part of a 6-1 run on the shot clock The Finn showed incredible strength to fight off a defender and bring the puck to the front of the net before turning and firing it past Rinne. The Jets got the ball rolling with power-play goal at 3:39 after Marko Dano did a great job working the puck down low and drawing a offensive-zone roughing penalty. The Jets immediately went to work, and after controlling the puck and getting a series of shots off in the first half of the advantage, Wheeler took a pass from Mark Scheifele at the top of the zone and wired home his 21st of the year to make it 1-0 Winnipeg. The Jets padded the lead at 12:09 as Byfuglien - who slid down from the right point - took a slick centering feed from Nikolaj Ehlers and hammered a shot short side on Predators goalie Pekka Rinne. But the home side wasn’t going anywhere. Austin Watson got the Preds on the board just 23 seconds later as he took the puck up the right side, cut to the middle and rippled a shot over Hellebuyck’s right shoulder to cut the deficit to one. The Preds, who were all over the Jets in the back half of the period, scored the tying goal with only 10.6 seconds left on a play eerily similar to the Watson goal earlier on. Mike Fisher took a pass on the fly, cut to the net and hoisted a backhander up under the bar to even the score. The Jets recorded eight of the first 12 shots of the period, but the Predators finished on a 12-2 run to take a 16-10 lead into the first intermission. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

BROOKLYN, NY - The Winnipeg Jets would be the first to admit they typically don’t do well in situations where they’re forced to play catch-up. But when the Islanders opened the scoring only 38 seconds into Thursday’s contest at Barclays Center, it was the kick in the pants these road warriors needed to shake the rust of an unusually long break between games and turn things in their favour. From then on, they were the ones in control - long enough, anyway, to build a commanding lead. Bryan Little (2), Mathieu Perreault and Adam Lowry scored, while Connor Hellebuyck made 27 saves to help the Jets beat the Islanders 4-2 to snap a four-game losing streak. The Jets will now head home with three of a possible four points on what became a two-game trip away from Winnipeg. “It was a weird last couple days for us,” captain Blake Wheeler said “The nature of the schedule, being thrown off our routine a little bit, I think it affected us the first five minutes, but we rebounded.” The Jets carried a 4-1 lead into the third, but the Islanders made a push and Anders Lee cut the deficit to two early in that final frame. But the Jets held them off, despite being outshot 10-8. The Islanders were all over the Jets after Adam Pelech drew first blood, and if it weren’t for Hellebuyck putting up the fortress on three-time 30-goal man John Tavares on a penalty kill immediately after, the game could have gone sideways in a hurry. “From that point on, other than one shift, straight through to the second period, we were on the puck very, very well,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “We moved the puck through the neutral zone with very good speed and we stayed on it in the offensive zone so we could roll four lines.” The Jets evened things up at 9:21 as Little buried the rebound from a Nikolaj Ehlers blast from the right circle. Ehlers had all day to walk in and tee it up, but the cannon caught iron over the goalie’s right shoulder. Little was quick to the scene, plunging it short side for his first of the night. No. 2 - a power-play marker - put the Jets up 2-1 with 1:25 left in the period. The play was again made possible by the speed of Ehlers, who took the puck up the right side before a crowd of black sweaters interrupted the rush and forced him to cut back and dish off in tight. Nic Petan, who was a healthy scratch in four of the past five games, drew the primary assist with a nifty feed at the top of the circles, allowing Little to walk in and bang home the one-timer for his 20th of the year. Asked what Little has meant to the Jets this season after becoming the fifth player to hit the 20-goal plateau, Maurice could only smile before offering this truly authentic account: “Most of it would just be profanity from me. He’s played, what, 48 games now? Insert all of those words I’m thinking that you know I’m thinking. We could have used him the first 23. He’s a huge piece to what we do.” The Jets opened up a 3-1 lead at 3:24 of the period as Perreault found himself with all kinds of time at the far circle after getting a feed from Wheeler. Perreault made no mistake, firing it short side for his eighth of the year and first in five games. Within minutes of the Petan ‘goal,’ the Jets got one to fall, anyway, as Lowry went hard to the blue paint and, on the second effort, chopped home his own rebound, setting a new career high in goals with his 12th of the campaign. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Josh Morrissey scored with 7:17 left to help the Winnipeg Jets to a 5-4 win against the Minnesota Wild at MTS Centre on Sunday. The Wild (43-22-6) battled back from being down 4-0 early in the second period, when they outshot the Jets 21-5 and scored four goals in 10:24 to tie the game. But they lost their fifth straight and fell seven points back of the Chicago Blackhawks for first place in the Central Division. Chris Stewart scored two goals and Charlie Coyle and Mikael Granlund also scored for the Wild. Devan Dubnyk allowed five goals on 21 shots. “Hey, listen … we stunk in the first,” Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau said. “We better come back in the second. It’s not resiliency. You make it sound like we’re good. That’s all. I’m done.” Winnipeg (32-33-7) moved within 10 points of the St. Louis Blues for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Western Conference with 10 games remaining. Andrew Copp, Adam Lowry, Ben Chiarot and Dustin Byfuglien also scored for the Jets. Connor Hellebuyck was pulled after allowing four goals on 35 shots. Michael Hutchinson made 13 saves, including a pad save against Matt Dumba in the final seconds to secure the win. “I haven’t played with the lead for a while, that adds a little more pressure coming into those situations,” Hutchinson said. “It was nice to back into a situation where the game was competitive.” Copp scored at 3:47 of the first period to give the Jets a 1-0 lead. Lowry made it 2-0 on the power play at 5:36. Chiarot extended the lead to 3-0 at 16:47. Dustin Byfuglien’s backhand shot made it 4-0 at 4:48 of the second period. Blake Wheeler got his 500th NHL point with an assist. But the Wild started to rally when Coyle made it 4-1 with at 9:23. Mikko Koivu made a quick cross-ice pass to Granlund on the power play at 15:08 to make it 4-2. Stewart scored 38 seconds later at 15:47 and again at 19:47 to tie the game 4-4. “You just can’t take your foot off the gas against teams like that,” Wheeler said. “You give them an inch, and all the sudden it’s a 4-4 ball game.” The Jets killed off a two-minute minor against Byfuglien for closing his hand on the puck with 2:07 remaining.

WINNIPEG - They’re what Head Coach Paul Maurice refers to as the “drivers.” They’re the letters, the pace and the pulse - the Pied Pipers of the Winnipeg Jets - each and every night over the course of this 82-game grind. Tonight, of course, was no exception. In a game that needed a boost, and to give the 15,294 on hand something to cheer for, they were there to jumpstart the offence and bring it all home in a tactical 60-minute effort. Blake Wheeler, Mark Scheifele and Mathieu Perreault combined for eight points, while Michael Hutchinson made 24 saves, to lead the Jets to a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday at MTS Centre. Wheeler and Scheifele each had a goal and two assists, while their linemate, Perreault, had a pair of apples in the victory. “That line, at the end of the day - I like what Matty Perreault does, I like the way Mark’s playing, but Blake Wheeler is driving it as he has done all year,” Maurice said. “He gets wired for the game and he’s just been so good for our team.” Wheeler broke a 1-1 tie with 12:58 to play in the third period, ripping a shot off the stick of Radko Gudas and beating Steve Mason high over the right shoulder as he barrelled his way down the right side. Scheifele rounded out the scoring late, as he took a beautiful feed from Wheeler and fired home his 29th of the year - bar down - from the top of the near circle, tying a career high in goals (29) with nine games to play. The Jets have now won three straight games for the second time this season. “We knew it was going to be a grind,” Scheifele said. “They play a tough game and they swarm the puck, but we stuck to our game and got rewarded.” Hutchinson, meanwhile, made his first start since Jan. 16 and while he wasn’t overly busy, he did come up a dazzling glove save off AllStar MVP Wayne Simmonds with 1:09 left to help preserve the victory. Matt Read scored with 1.7 seconds left, but by then, the game was over. The Flyers opened the scoring at 4:28 of the second after a sluggish opening 20 that saw the teams combine for only 15 shots. Showing great patience at the side of the net, and with Hutchinson out of position after making the initial save in tight, All-Star MVP Wayne Simmonds found Jordan Weal in front for the tap-in, putting the visitors on top 1-0. The Jets answered right back, though, as Perreault’s ninth - a power-play marker - evened the score only two-and-a-half minutes later. No. 85 weaved his way through the middle before creating space for himself and redirecting a Wheeler point shot up high past Mason. Wheeler and Mark Scheifele recorded the assists. Nelson Nogier made his NHL debut, recording one shot and three hits in more than 12 minutes of ice time alongside veteran Mark Stuart. “It was pretty nervous to say the least. It was a moment I’ll never forget,” he said. Nogier’s play impressed both his teammates and the head coach, as Maurice offered plenty of praise in his post-game press conference: “He got a bunch of touches on his first shift, which I think helped him. He skates well, he moved the puck well, he had some good reads. He had some tough defensive zone (faceoff) loss reads that are tough to pick up, but had no problem with it. I was pleased with his game.” - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

LOS ANGELES, CA - Mathieu Perreault and Patrik Laine scored to give the Jets a 2-1 lead after one, but the Kings roared back with four unanswered goals - including three on the power play - to take a 5-2 victory. “It was 2-2 after two periods in a tough building against a tough team. We gave ourselves an opportunity to win, but we just got into penalty trouble,” Blake Wheeler said. “We didn’t do a good enough job getting into shot lanes. We were out of synch, running around a bit too much, and they were composed and took the shots when they got them. We just weren’t able to get in front of them.” Marian Gaborik broke a 2-2 tie, 2:01 into the third to open the floodgates. With Josh Morrissey off serving a hooking penalty, Gaborik took a pass and curled off the near wall, walked in and fired a shot far side, under the glove, to give the Kings their first lead of the night. Another PPG - the Kings’ third of the night - sealed the win just 1:56 later, as Drew Doughty hammered a one-timer from the top of the zone clean past Hellebuyck to give the home side a two-goal cushion. Tanner Pearson scored shorthanded to round out the offence at 9:21. Connor Hellebuyck made 31 saves. With the loss, the Jets’ winning streak is halted at three. The Jets were the better team in the opening 20, scoring twice and taking a 2-1 lead into the first intermission, but the Kings - who were fighting for their playoff lives - took over the game with a dominant middle frame. Finally, after more than 15 minutes buzzing around the Winnipeg net, they hit pay dirt. With Jeff Carter supplying the screen in front, Jake Muzzin filtered one through from the left point, beating Hellebuyck clean on the glove side as he battled to find the puck through traffic. The goal came at 16:05, tying the game at two after the Kings doubled up the Jets on the shot clock (16-8). Hellebuyck was excellent, keeping his team in the game with a number of big saves late to preserve the tie after 40 minutes of play. “It’s 2-2 going into the third and you’ve battled fairly hard on the road, but we got into the box and that was the end of it,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. The Jets opened the scoring at 6:54 of the first, after recording four of the first five shots of the game. Brian Strait did a great job getting the puck through a simple wrister from the far point, and Perreault stationed in front - got a piece of it en route, tipping it over the right pad of Ben Bishop to score his 10th of the year. A power-play goal evened the score for the Kings at 14:23 after Blake Wheeler was nailed for high sticking. Catching the Jets on a bad line change, Anze Kopitar took a pass from Drew Doughty just outside the blue line, carried it down the left side and fired a quick shot over the glove to record his 11th of the year. But the Jets got the lead right back with a PPG of their own late in the period. Back-to-back penalties (Bishop for slashing and Doughty for delay of game) gave the Jets a 1:53-long 5-on-3, and just as the penalties were about to expire, the shooting gallery came through. Laine’s one-timer went off the shin of LA defender Alec Martinez, rattled the end boards and then caromed in off the skate of the goaltender to give the Jets a 2-1 lead. The goal was Laine’s 34th of the season, helping him regain the rookie lead in both goals and points (61). - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

ANAHEIM, CA - With more than half of their regulars missing in action on the back end, the Winnipeg Jets knew it was going to tough slog through the pond Friday in Anaheim. Dustin Byfuglien was a game-time decision but was unable to play with a lower-body injury, joining Tyler Myers, Toby Enstrom, Paul Postma and Ben Chiarot (or about 2,500 games of combined NHL experience) on the sidelines, while Jacob Trouba, Mark Stuart and Josh Morrissey, along with farmhands Brian Strait, Julian Melchiori and Nelson Nogier faced one of the top teams in the West. The Ducks, who entered the night only two points back of the San Jose Sharks for the top seed in the Pacific, took full advantage of the Jets’ banged-up blue line, scoring a 3-1 win at Honda Center “First it’s going to be the speed of the game, and second it’s going to be the size of the men that you face in the corners,” Head Coach Paul Maurice said of the challenge of having so many new and inexperienced players in the lineup. “Those one-on-one battles and the amount of time you have to make your decision with the puck are the two biggest [challenges]. The game gets closed off real quick down there. To be honest, I think they’ve done a pretty darn good job. Those are two heavy teams they just played, some good size up front, and they’ve all come from the American Hockey League and gone into two tough buildings in the National Hockey League and have handled themselves well.” In the absence of Winnipeg’s top minute muncher (27:27 per game, in fact), Trouba - who returned after missing five games with an upper-body injury - logged big minutes on the back end, and had no trouble with the added workload after 14 days off, playing more than 29 minutes to lead all skaters. Morrissey scored the Jets’ lone goal, while Michael Hutchinson made 32 saves. Corey Perry’s 15th of the season opened the scoring for the Ducks late in a first period dominated by the home side. With Antoine Vermette providing an excellent screen in front, Perry cycled the puck along the far wall before circling back to the point and beating Hutchinson with a long wrister at 17:17. Ryan Kesler nearly put the Ducks up by two on the very next shift as he slammed home a rebound at the side of the net, but after a long look on slo mo video, referees determined the net had already come off its moorings. Shots on goal favoured the Ducks - who had 31 of the 43 total attempts - 15-6 after one. Still, it was just a one-goal game and the Jets weren’t about to lie down. The Jets evened the score with a power-play goal at 6:08. Mathieu Perreault worked the puck back to Blake Wheeler, who bombed a one-timer from the right point. Morrissey, who was up on the play after entering the zone with a strong solo effort, got a piece of the shot en route, beating Jonathan Bernier bar down. Perreault, meanwhile, stayed hot with an assist on the play, giving him 19 points (6G, 13A) in his last 15 games. The Jets were the better team for a good chunk of the middle frame, but a fortuitous goal put the Ducks back in front with only 3:28 to play in the period. Andrew Cogliano’s attempted centering pass from the near corner went off Trouba’s right skate and trickled past Hutchinson to give the fowl a 2-1 lead. Jakob Silfverberg scored into the empty net with 1:07 to play, after the Ducks dictated the final frame, outshooting the Jets 14-4. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - On a day when all the chatter leading up to game time surrounded their troubling act on special teams, the Winnipeg Jets rose to the occasion and delivered a victory on the strength of a red-hot power play. The PP went a perfect 2-for-2 while the penalty kill was equally sublime, stuffing the Canucks on their lone chance of the evening. Adam Lowry played the hero, breaking a 1-1 tie with 8:13 to play to send the Jets to a 2-1 win. The Jets worked puck down low in the Vancouver zone and Mathieu Perreault - who had Winnipeg’s earlier goal - delivered a great pass out front to Lowry, and he buried it for his 14th goal of the season. Blake Wheeler chipped in with two assists, while Michael Hutchinson was exceptional in goal, stopping 28 shots to pick up his third win in his last four tries. “We moved the puck around well,” Lowry said of the game-winner - his first of the season. “I thought we had really good possession time and we were able to work it around, and fortunately I was able to bury it. It’s nice to come out on top of the special teams battle. “It’s always nice to score goals at crucial times. This time of year, it’s still fun to win and we’re still trying to put our best foot forward every game.” Alex Edler opened the scoring for the Canucks with only 21.6 seconds left in the first period. With traffic in front, Edler floated one through the left point, beating Hutchinson low, glove side to give the Canucks a 1-0 lead. Coming off a difficult road trip two times zones away, Head Coach Paul Maurice did say he was worried about his team’s energy level off the hop, but the Jets had no trouble conjuring it up early on, recording 11 of the first 15 shots of the game. The Jets had multiple chances in the front half of the period, including one that found iron. Joel Armia stripped Edler at the far circle, spun and rifled a shot off the far post. Looking for his first-career goal, Nelson Nogier followed it up a few minutes later with a point-blank chance from the very same spot, but Miller came up with the save. From there, the Canucks took over the game and finished the period on 9-1 run on the shot clock. Hutchinson had to come up big late in the period when a Bo Horvat centering pass found former UND star Brock Boeser in front for what should have been a tap-in. Hutchinson, along with the defensive efforts of Mark Scheifele, kept the 20-year-old off the board with a big save on the goal line. The Jets evened the score with a power-play goal at 13:51 of the second. Perreault took a pass from Blake Wheeler at the right circle, waited for the screen to form in front, and fired a laser over Miller’s left shoulder to score his 11th of the year. Perreault continues to be the hottest Jet offensively with 21 points (7G, 14A) in his last 16 games. “It’s all forwards out there and we’re just passing the puck around, and whatever’s open, we try to take it and that’s what we did today,” Perreault said. “We’ve got great players here that can make plays. Sometimes bounces aren’t going your way, but right now, scoring seven games in a row, you need a little bit of luck and a few bounces here and there.” The Jets’ power play now has a goal in seven straight games, going 8-for-25 (32%) overall. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

NEWARK, NJ - Nikolaj Ehlers, Blake Wheeler and Joel Armia scored in regulation, while Patrik Laine tallied the shootout winner as the Jets rallied from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the New Jersey Devils 4-3. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 20 of 23, and all three in the shootout. The Jets entered the third period trailing by one, but Armia tied the game with an incredible shorthanded goal - his third, and ninth of the year overall - at 2:39. The Finn carried the puck through traffic up the right side, and after outrunning the first of three defenders near the benches, he put the moves on the other two, turning each of them inside out with the silkiest of toe drags. Then, with a clear lane at the top of the circles, he fired a beautiful shot over the shoulder of Cory Schneider to even the score at three. They don’t call him ‘The Dangler’ for nothing. He now has nine goals and 17 points this year. “For him it’s all about compete,” Maurice said of the young winger. “It’s not that he doesn’t want to, it’s the same thing that all those guys are going through. They’ve never had to do it every night, and certainly not at the National League level, so they’re having to now and the coaches are barking at them. Pucks out, pucks in, those are the hard parts of our game that he needs to make improvements on, but he is making improvements on it. It’s markedly better than it was last year at the start of the year. The Jets got things rolling offensively with the opening tally only 52 seconds in, as Ehlers and Wheeler worked a pretty give-and-go off the rush. Ehlers dropped the puck back to Wheeler at the line, and the captain returned the favour with a nifty pass into the slot. Ehlers took it off the right skate and chipped a quick shot over Schneider’s glove to give the Jets a 1-0 lead. Ehlers had one of his best games in recent memory, pushing the pace offensively with that incredible speed of his, and that vision, touch and creativity around the net he’s quickly becoming known for. In all, the 21-year-old finished with five shots - second only to Laine, who was buzzing as well and had a game-high six. Moments after Mark Scheifele rifled a shot off a near post on 3-on-1 the other way, the Devils came right back and evened the score with a gritty goal in tight. Hellebuyck was unable to squeeze the initial backhand from Pavel Zacha and, with the puck sitting flat on the goal line, Beau Bennett raced in and poked it home with Dustin Byfuglien draped all over him. The Devils took a 2-1 lead at 12:07 as Josh Morrissey got tripped up in the neutral zone, allowing the speedy Taylor Hall to break in alone. Hall made a great move on the forehand, outwaiting the gaolie and slipping a shot between the pad the post for his 19th of the year. Shots on goal were even at seven apiece after one. The Jets were all over the Devils in the second, outshooting them 15-3 in the front half of the stanza, but it remained a one-goal game after the teams traded goals in the final five minutes of the period. Stefan Noesen helped the Devils open up a two-goal lead off a terrific feed from Blake Pietila at 15:27, but the Jets replied only 1:09 later to get back within one. Julian Melchiori let one fly from well out at the top of the zone, and Wheeler - who posted up between the dots - got a piece of it en route, deflecting the puck high over Schneider’s glove to score his 23rd of the campaign. Mark Scheifele drew the second assist to record his team-leading 77th point. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Mark Scheifele’s career-high 30th goal of the season was the overtime winner as the Jets rallied from two down in the third period to take a 4-3 win over the Pacific Division-leading Anaheim Ducks. Blake Wheeler made it a one-goal game at 11:35 and Dustin Byfuglien tied things up on a jam play with only 12 seconds left to send the game to overtime. This is the second straight game the Jets have battled back from a 3-1 deficit to earn a win in extra time. As a result, they’re now above .500 for the first time in a while. “We’ve had the opportunity to see both oceans in the past week and we’re not as quick or as sharp as we’d like to be, but the fight was good,” Maurice said. “The set of circumstances we face when they came to the rink, the players handled it right.” The Jets were all over the Ducks in the third, outshooting them 17-2. And with as dominant a period as the Jets were having, it was only a matter of time before they took over. It wasn’t even close. About midway through, the tide turned for good. Nikolaj Ehlers turned on the jets and swung wide around the net before setting up Wheeler with a short pass at the far side. The captain made no mistake, slamming the one-timer past Jonathan Bernier for his 24th of the year. With the Jets pouring it on the final minute, they finally caught a break when an Ehlers pass pinballed in front and was eventually poked home by Byfuglien, who bowled his way to the blue paint, leaving Kevin Bieksa and Ryan Kesler in his wake. Scheifele then won it with 1:26 to play in a back-and-forth overtime, scorching a one-timer up under the bar for the milestone marker. Joel Armia scored the other goal for Winnipeg, while Michael Hutchinson made 25 saves. The ‘drivers’ were leaned on heavily in this one, with Scheifele playing a season-high 26:47, Wheeler 25:11 and Byfuglien - the NHL’s leader in minutes played - a game-high 29:53. Jakob Silfverberg got the Ducks on the board first with a wicked shot off the far wall before the game was even 10 minutes old, but Armia got it right back for the Jets with a beautiful shorthanded marker at 11:54. Armia, who now has 10 goals on the year, had the puck taken away by the superb defensive efforts of Ryan Getzlaf on the back check, but he stayed with it, got it back and surprised Bernier with a quick rip through the five-hole. Armia, 23, leads Winnipeg with four shorthanded goals on the year, and is only one off the league leader, Viktor Arvidsson of the Nashville Predators. Perry put the Ducks back in front with a backhander in tight. Antoine Vermette put a low shot into the pads on a partial odd-man rush, and Perry jumped on the rebound, hoisting it over the fallen Hutchinson at 18:56. The Ducks opened up a two-goal lead with a power-play goal at 7:01, as Perry picked up his second of the night. The former 50-goal scorer walked off the right wall and confronted the Winnipeg D before slipping a shot between the wickets for his 18th of the year. But that was all the visitors had in them. The Jets took over and we didn’t hear from the Ducks’ top offensive players for the rest of the night. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Mathieu Perreault has quietly been putting up one of the most prolific offensive runs in his career, and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down any time soon. The 29-year-old was back at it again Saturday, breaking a 2-2 tie with 12:14 to play to help the Jets win their fourth straight, 4-2 over the visiting Ottawa Senators. The Jets have now won four straight games for the first time this season. Perreault, meanwhile, now has points (11, in fact) in seven of his last eight games. “We just don’t quit,” Perreault said. “I wish we would have done it earlier in the season, but it’s nice to get those wins now and get that good feeling in the room and know that we can do it.” No matter what line he plays (on this night, he played the left side with Bryan Little and Patrik Laine), this dynamic, and sometimes gravity defying buzz saw just finds a way to produce and make those around him better. This isn’t some small sample, either. In fact, since the calendar flipped and the Jets played their first game of 2017 back on Jan. 3, Perreault has been incredibly consistent, recording 31 points in 36 games, including nine multi-point efforts. The Jets continued to push in the final 10 minutes before Nikolaj Ehlers iced the 4-2 decision with an empty-netter at 19:35. Blake Wheeler and Adam Lowry had the other goals for Winnipeg, while Connor Hellebuyck was solid, stopping 29 in the victory. But with the game tied at two, No. 85 stepped up and took over as he has so often over the past few months. Bryan Little made a terrific pass through traffic from the far wall into the middle, and Perreault made no mistake from the top of the circles, firing a shot under the blocker of Ottawa goalie Mike Condon to give the Jets their first lead of the night. A Mike Hoffman blast put the Sens up 1-0 at 16:15 of a sleepy opening frame, after the Jets played hot potato with the puck at their own blue line. Nelson Nogier tried to clear it up the middle and away from danger, but it landed right back on the stick of a Sen, who made a short pass over to Hoffman for the blistering one-timer. Kyle Turris came within inches of giving the Sens a 2-0 lead as he took a breakaway pass from Winnipeg native Mark Stone in the final minute of the period, but his wrister sailed high and wide. Shots on goal were even at eight apiece after one. Wheeler’s 25th of the year tied things up for the Jets at 3:29 after Chris Kelly served up a turnover behind his own net, but the post-goal celebration was cut short. The Sens got it back only 11 seconds later as Hoffman’s weak and off target centering pass banked in off the skate of Bryan Little in front, giving the visitors a 2-1 lead. This is now the second straight season that Wheeler has eclipsed the 70-point (25G, 45A) mark. The Jets brought the game back on even terms at 10:43, only moments after a dominant power play that kept the Sens in their own end for the full two minutes finally expired. In his usual spot in front of the net, Lowry fended off a check, spun and cleaned up a loose puck in the blue paint to give him 15 on the year. Jacob Trouba drew the lone assist after his low shot off the pad created the second chance for the big centre, who continues to expand his career high in goals and points. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

ST. LOUIS, MO - The Winnipeg Jets extended their season-long winning streak to five as they used a three-goal, minute-long burst early in the second period to defeat the St. Louis Blues in convincing fashion, 5-2, at Scottrade Center. Patrik Laine scored twice, while Nikolaj Ehlers, Mark Stuart and Mark Scheifele added singles offensively. Michael Hutchinson made 24 saves. With the win, the Jets improve to 38-35-7 with only two games left in the season. The Jets had a 3-2 lead entering the third but iced it with a couple of quick ones in the first 10 minutes. Scheifele’s 31st of the year helped the Jets open up a two-goal lead at 4:48 before Laine ripped home his 36th (and second of the night) at 9:02 to make it a 5-2 advantage. On Scheifele’s goal, Blues goalie Jake Allen came up with a ridiculous glove grab off the one-timer, but a lengthy review confirmed it had, indeed, crossed the goal line, despite the ‘tender’s other worldly reflexes. With the goal, Scheifele has now hit 80 points for the first time in his career. Wheeler drew the assist after making a fabulous pass inside the circles. “It just reaffirms where he’s at,” Maurice said of Scheifele. “You go back to Bryan Little’s injury and he’s put up a ton of points, and he’s done it consistently. He gets full credit for the 80 because he’s played for everybody, but Ehlers and Wheeler have now come back to the form that they found last year and have been pretty dominant.” Added Wheeler: “It’s easy to shut it down when you’re out of playoff contention, but we have a group of solid guys who still come to the rink every day excited about their job. The most important thing is that we love what we do for a living. We feel fortunate to be able to do this every single day and that’s what we’re all about. Look, we’re not going to raise the Cup this year but hopefully sometime soon down the road we’re going to be playing games at this time of year that are really meaningful.” Less than five minutes after Scheifele’s goal, the puck popped loose to Laine in the slot and the rookie made no mistake, slinging it past Allen put the game away. The Jets, who have trailed at one point or another in all five games on this impressive, late-season run, gave up the first goal once again in this one (only 35 seconds in, no less), but they had a great response and were the better team from that point forward. The Jets outshot the Blues 9-4 in the opening frame before scoring three on five shots in just over a minute to take control early in the second. Laine got the ball rolling at 1:47, snapping a four-game goal drought with one of the greasiest of his now 36 tallies this year. With Petteri Lindbohm draped all over him in the blue paint, the rookie stabbed home the rebound from a Stuart point shot to make it a 1-1 game. Then, on a delayed penalty only 14 seconds later, Ehlers took the puck around the net and stuffed home the wraparound to give the Jets their first lead on the Dane’s 25th. Stuart rounded out the goal fest with a long shot from the far point that arched high over the goaltender after catching the skate of Blues pivot Kyle Brodziak en route. “It feels good. I’ve been playing well in my last few games and just wasn’t getting rewarded. Now I’m getting rewarded and it feels good,” Laine said. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

COLUMBUS, OH - Bryan Little had a season-high four point night with a goal and three helpers, Mathieu Perreault was not far behind with trey of his own (1G, 2A), and Jacob Trouba had a pair of power-play markers to lead the Jets to a 5-4 win over one of the league’s best teams, the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Jets have now won six straight games. In his NHL debut, Eric Comrie looked very good, posting 35 saves for his first big-league victory. Comrie had several big saves, including a terrific right-pad stop on a turnaround shot by Alexander Wennberg that was labeled for the far corner late in the first, and another off in similar fashion off Scott Harrington midway through the second to keep the Jets in front after building a 3-1 lead. “It actually felt pretty similar (to the AHL),” said Comrie, who had most of his family on hand at Nationwide Arena. “It was definitely a little bit quicker and guys can shoot better and stuff like that, but for the most part, for me, it was the same thing and I just went out and played my game. Trouba broke a 3-3 tie at 3:06 of the third period with a cannon from the point on the Jets’ third power play of the night, screaming his eighth of the year past Jackets goalie Joonas Korpisalo. Little gave the Jets a 5-3 lead at 9:35 he finished a 2-on-1-turnedbreakaway with a nifty move in tight, backhanding his 21st of the year into the heart of the cage. Boone Jenner got one back at the 14-minute mark, but Comrie shut the door the rest of the way to preserve the victory. The Jets built up a 3-1 lead by the midway point of the second period, but had it erased before taking the game back in the final frame. The Jets were under siege early on, surrendering eight of the first nine shots of the game before the Jackets, and their captain Nick Foligno, finally solved Comrie at 6:58. Foligno started the play by picking a Winnipeg pass attempt out of midair at the defensive blue line and galloping back the other way with numbers. Making a quick move to the middle and using Josh Morrissey as a filter, Foligno ripped off a shot off the far post and in to give Columbus a 1-0 lead. The Jets evened things up with a power-play goal at 13:54 as Trouba fired a one-timer clean through the goalie off an excellent feed from Little, who drew the high-sticking penalty on Scott Harrington. Little, who controlled the puck along the far wall, moved down to the right circle and delivered a beautiful backhand pass over a stick and right into the wheelhouse of the defenceman. Scheifele gave the Jets a 2-1 lead with his 32nd of the year at 15:25, as he chipped a quick shot over the glove after getting a pass from Blake Wheeler at the lip of the blue paint. The Jets opened up a two-goal lead at 3:49 of the second as Perreault picked up his 13th of the year. Off the rush, Perreault showed great patience, cutting to the middle and waiting everyone out before ripping a high shot past the goaltender. But the Jackets weren’t going away. Brandon Saad made a one-goal game once again just three-and-a-half minutes later he worked his way in alone off the right and slipped a quick shot five-hole to halve the deficit. Saad then tied the game at 12:35 after the Jets failed to clear the zone on a routine chip play. With numbers in tight, Saad put a quick shot off the far post, but then quickly cleaned up the rebound with his 24th of the season. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - What a way to go out. After 174 days, 116 practices and game-day skates, 59 flights and hundreds of bus rides, it all came down to this. And Game 82 did not disappoint. Blake Wheeler scored a shorthanded goal with just 44.6 seconds left to vault the Jets to a 2-1 victory in the season finale at MTS Centre. On a 2-on-1 with Mark Scheifele, Wheeler took a pass and broke in alone, hoisting a backhander over Nashville Pekka Rinne for his 26th of the year. With the assist, Scheifele finishes with 82 points in 79 games - his first-career point-per-game campaign. Wheeler finishes with 74 points (26G, 48A) after playing in all 82 games in his first year as captain. “He just pushed himself and did a remarkable job bringing the kids in and being an example for those kids,” said Head Coach Paul Maurice. “It was nice for him to get the last one and to have it be meaningful in the situation that we’re in. “I’ve had a list of pretty good captains, some Hall of Fame players [like] Ron Francis, Mats Sundin, Rod Brind’Amour… The job that he did was as good as any job I’ve ever seen.” The winning goal came after Kyle Connor evened things up earlier in the period, as the Jets took back the game after a so-so second, outshooting the Preds 15-6. Connor tied the game with 9:13 to play, scoring in his first game back after spending the past few months with the Jets’ AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose, where he became of the team’s most deadly offensive weapons. After picking off a pass in the neutral zone and turning the play back the other way, Connor took a beautiful feed from Adam Lowry, raced in alone and buried a shot under the blocker of Rinne for his second of the year and first in 13 games. Connor Hellebuyck was excellent in goal, stopping 33 shots in the win to improve his record to 26-19-4. With the win, the Jets finish the 2016-17 campaign on a franchise record seven-game winning streak and with a record of 40-35-7 for 87 points - a nine-point improvement over last year. “It’s been an up-and-down season, obviously, and there’s been a lot of frustration, but if you look at the guys we have in our room, the amount of talent we have on the ice now, you have to think our group is knocking on the door,” Wheeler said. “The city of Winnipeg should take a lot of pride in the fact that their team didn’t quit. There are teams in this league that gave up down the stretch when they were out of it and we certainly did not. That means more than the wins. They’re great, and it makes it enjoyable to come to the rink in a bad situation, but just being involved in games and being in the fight with that group of guys…that’s what you build the right things with.” Ryan Ellis drew first blood for the Preds with a shorthanded goal at 11:31 of the second period. Bryan Little coughed it up in the neutral zone and then blew a tire as he went to give chase, giving the D man a long, clear-cut breakaway. In alone, Ellis made a quick move in tight and put a slippery shot through the five-hole to give Nashville a 1-0 lead. The goal came just moments after the Preds killed a lengthy 5-on-3, as Chris Thorburn and Dustin Byfuglien were penalized 48 seconds apart. The Jets were the better team in the first, outshooting the Preds 14-7. But Nashville dominated the middle frame, putting up 21 shots to Winnipeg’s half-dozen. - Ryan Dittrick, WinnipegJets.com

2016-17 SEASON IN REVIEW

SEASON NOTES IRON-MOOSE Manitoba’s ‘iron-man’ this season was defenceman Kevin Czuczman, appearing in all 76 games. The mark was a new career-high for Czuczman who played 74 games in 2015-16. The London, ON native played his 200th AHL game in the final game of the season on April 14. Named the team’s Best Defenceman, Czuczman led the Moose defence with 32 points (9G, 23A).

ROOKIE TRIFECTA Three AHL rookies sat atop the Moose scoring list this season. Jack Roslovic led the way with 48 points (13G, 35A) in 65 games. He was followed by Kyle Connor with 44 points (25G, 19A) and Dan DeSalvo who tallied 40 points (18G, 22A). The three accounted for 28.4% of Manitoba’s 197 goals on the season.

CATEGORY LEADERS Breaking the Moose scoring list down into categories, Kyle Connor (17G, 12A) and JC Lipon (12G, 17A) led the team with 29 points at even strength. Jack Roslovic led Manitoba on the man-advantage, posting 25 power play points, 21 of which were assists. Quinton Howden led the way shorthanded with three goals down a man, which matched a career-high. Roslovic led the team in scoring at home with 24 points (6G, 18A) at MTS Centre and 24 points (7G, 17A) on the road.

CAREER YEAR Ryan Olsen’s game winning goal on April 9 was the seventh tally of his season, setting a new career high for the third-year pro. The Delta, BC native scored most of his goals at MTS Centre, with six of seven coming on home ice. Olsen had 11 points (7G, 4A) in 56 games, two points off his 65-game, career-high total from 2015-16.

MASKED MILESTONES Goaltender Eric Comrie recorded his first career NHL victory on April 6 in Columbus, making 35 saves in a 5-4 win. The contest was Comrie’s 100th professional appearance in just his second year of pro hockey. The Tri-City Americans alum made his 100th AHL appearance with the Moose/ IceCaps on April 9 against Tucson. He is the sixth goaltender to reach the mark in franchise history. Cory Schneider holds the games played record at 136 (2007-10).

2016-17 SEASON IN REVIEW

MEMORABLE MONTH Kyle Connor had the most productive month of his young career in March. The rookie led Manitoba with 15 points (9G, 6A) in 13 games last month. That mark put him tied for fifth in the AHL during the month, second amongst all rookies, and tied for third in overall goals. Connor was named the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for period ending March 5 and the points kept coming as the Shelby Township, MI native finished second on Manitoba’s overall points list with 44 (25G, 19A).

WELCOME ADDITIONS Throughout the season, 13 players on tryouts (professional or amateur) registered points for the Moose. Those players combined for 54 points (24G, 30A) in 123 total games. The bulk of those go to Scott Glennie who played 45 games on a professional tryout, posting 20 points (7G, 13A). Dan DeSalvo played 11 games on a tryout, racking up 14 points (7G, 7A) before signing an AHL contract with the Moose. Late season amateur tryouts saw Francis Beauvillier tally five points (4G, 1A) in nine games while Jansen Harkins picked up four points (2G, 2A) in four games.

FUELLING THE JETS A total of 12 players spent time with the Moose and Jets this season with all but one of those players getting into game action with the big club. Seven of those 12 appeared in 10 or more games with the Jets. Seven of them registered points while in the NHL.

SNIPER Forward Kyle Connor led the Moose with 25 goals. After scoring eight goals in his first 32 AHL games, the rookie went off for 17 tallies over his final 20 games. That torrid pace pushed Connor into third among AHL rookies and tied for 14th in the league. The Shelby Township, MI native registered five multi-goal games and led the Moose with four game-winning goals.

LONG-TERM Patrice Cormier played his 300th game with the Manitoba Moose franchise on Jan. 28 in Charlotte. Most of Cormier’s games came with the team in St. John’s, playing in an IceCaps sweater from 2011-2015. Finishing the season with 333 games to his name, Cormier is sixth on the organization’s all-time games played list.

STRONG FINISH The Moose closed out their season by posting a 4-1-1-0 record in their last six games. That mark included earning points in all four games of their final home stand of the season. It was the second time the Moose earned points in every game of a stand, taking four wins from Oct. 28 to Nov. 5 as part of a five-game home winning streak. All six of Manitoba’s final games were decided by two goals or less.

2016-17 SEASON IN REVIEW

AWARDS FLOFORM COUNTERTOPS MOST VALUABLE PLAYER AWARD Kyle Connor made his presence felt, starting in his first two games with the Moose, when he picked up his first AHL assist in his first game and first AHL goal in his second. In 52 games with the Moose, the Shelby Township, MI native had 44 points (25G, 19A) to sit second in team scoring. Connor led the team in goals (25) and points per game average (0.85). Connor had a penchant for scoring key goals, scoring a team-leading four game winning goals, five ‘first goals’ and three insurance goals on the campaign. Connor was recognized by the league this season when he was named the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending March 5.

MANITOBA MOOSE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR AWARD It was a productive first year of professional hockey for Kyle Connor. The University of Michigan alum joined the Moose after spending the first 19 games of the season with the Winnipeg Jets, tallying four points (1G, 3A). The 25 goals and 44 points he had in 52 games with Manitoba place Connor third and tied for 15th among AHL rookies respectively. His points per game average ranked fourth among first year AHL’ers playing over 30 games.

INDEPENDENT JEWELLERS THREE STARS AWARD Leading the way with 80 ‘star points’ on the season, Kyle Connor clinched his spot atop this year’s three stars standings. Connor was named a game star in eight of the 24 home games he appeared in this season. He earned first star honours three times, second star honours twice and third star honours three times. Dan DeSalvo finished second in the three stars standings with 55 points while last year’s winner, Eric Comrie, was third with 50 points.

UNITED FIREFIGHTERS OF WINNIPEG BEST DEFENCEMAN AWARD In his first season with the Moose, Kevin Czuczman led Manitoba defenders in goals (9), assists (23) and points (32), all career highs. The Lake Superior State University product paced the entire team with 190 shots on goal and is second on the Moose with 19 points (6G, 13A) on the power play. Czuczman was the only player on the Moose roster to appear in all 76 games during the 2016-17 season.

ELECTRONIC PRODUCTS RECYCLING ASSOCIATION JULIAN KLYMKIW COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD In addition to the many full-team appearances the Manitoba Moose made throughout the community, Eric Comrie took on a significant role with Project 11 this season. Project 11 is a program inspired and created in honour of Rick Rypien (#11), a former player with the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose who passed away due to mental illness. The program is available to support students in grades five to eight with virtual tutorials educating students about mental health. During his seven school visits throughout the season, Comrie participated in learning activities with students and provided support to the classroom teachers. Comrie also held many post-game meet-and-greets with Project 11 students following select home games.
