The Winnipeg Jets are back to placing tallies in the win column after a momentary hiccup in Vancouver.
Despite what the scoreboard says, the Jets actually struggled early. They allowed quite a few glorious chances for the Montreal Canadiens early. Thankfully Ondrej Pavelec kept the Jets in the game with a tonne of saves in the first.
Dustin Byfuglien opened the scoring in the first off a nice drop-pass from Jim Slater. Mark Scheifele brought it up to two in the second, only for Andrei Markov to reply 41 seconds later. The second period ended after two more goals scored by Jim Slater and Blake Wheeler.
Things looked good for the Jets, who by the third period were back to their normal selves in defensive and transitional play while holding a 4-1 lead.
There was a moment of fear with Brendan Gallagher scoring off of a bad giveaway in front of Pavelec from Drew Stafford, but an opportunistic goal from Adam Lowry gave the Jets back their 3 point lead.
Let's break it down.
