WINNIPEG – It was as close to home as Cody McLeod will ever play a National Hockey League game, and he was only happy to oblige his family in attendance and those back home.

“It’s a small farming community,” said McLeod of his hometown Binscarth, Man., a four hour drive west from Winnipeg. McLeod’s father Pete, along with some friends, were at MTS Centre as the Colorado Avalanche beat the Jets 4-1 on Monday night.

“A lot of people back there are Jets fans so it’s good to beat them,” he said.

McLeod scored the winner, added and assist and even took the fists out of the drawer in the win.

WINNIPEG – Chris Thorburn wasn’t even supposed to be on the ice, yet he ended up with the game-winning goal.

Thorburn picked the pocket of Michael Stone and scored his first short-handed goal as a Jet at 11:09 of the third period to lift Winnipeg to a 3-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday.

“Chris does the same things whether he plays three minutes or he plays 15 minutes,” said Jets coach Paul Maurice. “We’ll take a 3-2 goal from anybody, but it’s really great when you can get a heart-and-soul guy, subs in on the penalty kill because we’ve got a (penalty) killer in the box, and he scores a goal like that — all effort.”

A humbled Thorburn added that he was fortunate on the play that led to his third goal of the season.

“I got lucky with the defenceman falling down and myself having more time than I thought I would have and I was able to sneak one by him,” said Thorburn. “The adrenaline was rushing. It seemed loud and I just got caught up in the moment. I’m just proud of our team the way we battled. There were times where things weren’t pretty.”

WINNIPEG – Pairing Drew Stafford with Mark Scheifele helped the Winnipeg Jets end their losing skid.

Stafford and Scheifele both scored twice and added an assist each as the Jets snapped a six-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday.

Stafford’s first goal in 12 games helped break a 1-1 tie late in the second period. He scored an empty-netter with 1:34 left in the game.

“Twelve? OK,” Stafford said when he asked about the end of his drought. “At this point, I’m not really worried about stats or counting the games. That’s just more clutter in your head.
