WINNIPEG — The Minnesota Wild showed why they may be the hottest team in the NHL this month as they improved their November record to 9-1-1 with a 3-2 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Centre on Saturday afternoon.
The Jets, now winless in their last four after a near-fruitless three-game homestand, picked up a single point Saturday but remain in the cellar of the Central Division with 24 points and a 10-11-4 record.
“It’s a tough one. I thought we had control of the game,” said Jets captain Andrew Ladd. “Obviously giving up one on your power play is something you don’t want to happen. We’ll take full responsibility for that.”
Leading 2-1 late in the third and with the man-advantage after Wild defenceman Marco Scandella took a hooking penalty, the Jets caused a turnover. Going the other way on a 2-on-1 were Minnesota’s top two point producers.
