There was great risk in the way the Jets trailed the speed of the game in the first. They also overcame another big obstacle - the Kings owned the faceoff circle on Friday. L.A. won the faceoff match in every period, by counts of 15-6, 12-8 and 13-9. Jim Slater was the Jets' only plus man, at 9-for- 17. It's very difficult to win in the NHL when you're not starting with the puck.


In going 2-0 to start the season, the Jets have bucked the odds. For a second straight night, they lost the special-teams battle to their opponents and came out with a clean two points. The Kings, with their third-period surge on Friday, wound up two-for-five on the power play. Winnipeg went one-for-six.
