Free Press ★★★
★ Bryan Little, C, Wpg.: Potted the winner in OT, going topshelf over Scott Clemmensen on a smart feed by Zach Redmond with the Jets on the man advantage.
★★ Zach Redmond, D, Wpg.:Keeps getting better and better with each shift. Picked up two assists in just his third NHL game. Makes smart decisions, doesn’t panic and will be difficult to take out of the lineup now.
★★★Mike Weaver, D, Fla.: Battled from the opening draw to the final horn. Finished with just over 24 minutes of ice time and registered four hits and three blocked shots.
