Make it three in a row!
The Winnipeg Jets beat the St. Louis Blues in the cointoss after a game that was a dominant effort by the Jets, where Brian Elliot and the post were the only things keeping the Blues in the game.
The game started with a tight checking and scoreless first period, with neither team holding a major advantage over the other.
This all changed in the second. The Jets dominated in terms of scoring chances and puck possession, but Elliott kept on stopping everything the Jets threw at him. David Backes then opened up the scoring from a nice cross-ice feed by Paul Statsny.
The Jets continued pressing into the third after what could have been a disheartening moment. Their diligence paid off with Drew Stafford scoring on a backhand about midway in the third.
With nothing solved in overtime, the Jets moved to the shootout. Goals from Drew Stafford and Andrew Ladd with Ondrej Pavelec stopping two of three ultimately gave Jets the win.
Let's break it down.

The Winnipeg Jets haven't had much success against the St. Louis Blues.
Having dropped all three previous meetings this season, the Jets will look to stay in the playoff picture Thursday night when they host the Blues at MTS Centre.
The Jets (35-23-12), winners of their last two games, hold the final wild-card spot in the West with 82 points -- one ahead of the surging Calgary Flames.

The Winnipeg Jets appear to be giving Ondrej Pavelec one last shot to run with the starter's mantle.
After years of subaverage goaltending performances Pavelec was usurped as Winnipeg's everyday starter in midseason by Michael Hutchinson. It would seem though that Hutchinson's recent struggles have opened the door enough for Pavelec, and the Czech-born netminder will make his third consecutive start on Thursday night against the NHL's third most potent offensive team, the St. Louis Blues, according to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun.
