WINNIPEG – Blake Wheeler had a plan to spark the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday and it involved a familiar play.
The Jets captain looked for linemate Mark Scheifele. He found the centre at the front of the net and Scheifele fired in his 18th goal of the season to tie it 4-4 against the Edmonton Oilers at 9:58 of the third period.
WINNIPEG – Patrik Laine is just doing what feels right.
The Winnipeg Jets forward became the fourth-youngest player in NHL history to score 100 career goals when he recorded a pair in Winnipeg’s 6-5 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday. His close friend, Nikolaj Ehlers, had a hat trick.
WINNIPEG – The Pittsburgh Penguins old guard and young blood came together to rally past the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.
Sidney Crosby, a 14-year NHL veteran, had a goal and 24-year-old Zach Acton-Reese added the late winner as Pittsburgh staged a third-period comeback to top Winnipeg 4-3. It was Aston-Reese’s second goal of the season. Riley Sheahan also had his second and Derek Grant his first to round out the Pittsburgh (10-8-5) scoresheet.
