Jets 3 at Ducks 2

Free Press ★★★

★ Ondrej Pavelec, G, Jets The Jets netminder was exceptional all night, turning back a total of 40 of 42 shots and standing on his head through Anaheim onslaughts all night long. Pavelec has been the Jets starter for all four games since Paul Maurice took over behind the Jets bench and, like Maurice, has yet to lose during that period.

★★ Evander Kane, F, Jets Playing his first game since a hand injury sidelined him for four games, Kane was a presence on the ice all night long, notching his 15th goal of the season on a short-handed marker late in the second period and also chipping in an assist on Winnipeg’s first goal of the game.

BOSS IMPRESSED:

WINNIPEG Jets chairman Mark Chipman weighed in for the first time on Tuesday on the undefeated performance of his team under new head coach Paul Maurice.

"Obviously, very pleased," Chipman told reporters at Honda Center prior to his team’s morning skate."

"I think it’s a step in the right direction.

Paul seems to have settled in very well and stepping into that situation is a difficult one and I think he’s managed it very, very well. I’m very pleased with the job he’s done so far."

It was Chipman’s first public comments on the state of his team since former head coach Claude Noel was fired on Jan. 12 and replaced by Maurice, who is 4-0 since taking over as Jets head coach.
