WINNIPEG — With it appearing the Winnipeg Jets would cruise to a consecutive win at home holding a 3-2 lead late in the game, two quick strikes from the Detroit Red Wings in the final seven minutes sunk the Jets 4-3 at MTS Centre.
Winnipeg — now 10-8-3 on the season — suffers their fourth loss in their last six games, but it is only the third time they have fallen in regulation in their last 14.
Tomas Tatar‘s second of the game would prove to be the game-winner, as Detroit responded impressively every time Winnipeg took the lead Thursday night. Justin Abdelkader found the equalizer for the Wings with 7:00 remaining in the third period, wildly swinging the momentum and putting a clearly tired Jets team on their heels.
A four-vehicle crash at the intersection of Highway 2 and Provincial Road 248 on Thursday evening sent one man to hospital in critical condition.
Carman and Headingley RCMP responded to find a southbound pickup truck that had entered the intersection and collided with an eastbound semi. The pickup was then hit by a westbound pickup and then again by an eastbound pickup truck.
The 52-year-old Hadashville man driving the southbound truck was taken to hospital with serious injuries. His passenger and the occupants in the other vehicles involved weren’t injured.
