WINNIPEG – Tyler Myers could sense his Winnipeg Jets teammates struggling to fight after getting down by two goals to the Washington Capitals on Tuesday.
Then came the pushback: Bryan Little scored to make it a one-goal game midway through the third period and Mark Scheifele supplied his second of the night with 15 seconds left to send it into overtime.
WINNIPEG – Henrik Lundqvist left Winnipeg satisfied with how his team earned two points.
The Jets threw 38 shots at the veteran New York Rangers goalie and lost 3-1 on Sunday. Lundqvist kept New York hanging around long enough for Jimmy Vesey to score the go-ahead goal with 3:53 left in the third period.
WINNIPEG – Mark Scheifele has come a long way since the early days of an injury that made it difficult for him to even sleep.
The Winnipeg Jets forward participated in his first full-contact practice Monday since being hit into the boards in a Dec. 27 game against the Edmonton Oilers. Scheifele won’t play Tuesday against Arizona but could get the green light to return Friday versus St. Louis, head coach Paul Maurice said after practice.
“Love Struck Pucks” will be sold for $25 each during the Jets vs. Washington Capitals game. The sale of 1,000 custom designed pucks signed by Jets players will support #HockeyTalks month, a national public awareness campaign for Canadian NHL teams designed to encourage conversations about mental health.
