JETS 3 DEVILS 1

Free Press Three Stars

1-Evander Kane, Jets. Offence has been hard to come by and this was a most timely contribution.

2-Mark Scheifele, Jets. Hasn't scored much at all, but see above. It applies to the rookie, too.

3-Ondrej Pavelec, Jets. His team not good at confidently closing them out, he was needed, knew it, and made a difference.

 

Buffed

Two assists from Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien, and a plus-three, his best game that way all season. Byfuglien has been a contributor to the overall effort recently. In his last 10 games, he has scored six goals and 12 points. And Monday, partner Toby Enstrom did his part as well, also plus-three as the duo shared the overall game's ice-time lead with 24:18.

 

Good blocking

Jets coach Claude Noel noted the sacrifices after the game. In that vein, he found Mark Stuart with five and Blake Wheeler with three blocked shots in the game to lead all players, and the Jets won the blocked-shots battle 14-6. They also had a decent night in the faceoff circle once again, gaining a 58-42 edge in percentages, winning 29 of 50.

 

Favourable numbers

Winnipeg is now 7-2-1 when getting the game's first goal. And the team's record against Eastern Conference teams is a most pleasing 5-1-1

 

Up Next

Jets at Islanders, Wednesday, 6 p.m. TSNJets, TSN1290.
