JNGD 19 Instant Recap: Jets Light Up Jersey 5-2

The City of Winnipeg may have planned a Santa Claus parade after today’s game, but the Jets beat the city to the punch and had a parade of goals in the second period to help give them a 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

It’s the Jets fourth win in a row and they have won eight of their last ten games played. They now embark on a four-game road trip next week starting in Nashville on Monday.

How much did you enjoy today’s game? Mathieu Perreault, Matt Hendricks and Joel Armia: great line or the greatest line?

For New Jersey: Nico Hischier – 1 assist, 7 shots on goal. Led all Devils in shots and was dangerous all game long.
