FREE PRESS STARS

1. John Tavares, Islanders. Three points in the third period. That's usually good enough.

2. Alex Burmistrov, Jets. First goal of season and important time warrants selection.

3. Evander Kane, Jets. Delivered the game-winner with a strong skate up the ice to get at a rebound.

TRENDING UP:

The Jets were scored upon first three straight times this week. Their record in those games? A crisp 3-0. It's a sign some character is starting to take hold.

TRENDING DOWN:

If there was a grade for Winnipeg's puck management on Sunday night, it might have been a D, or a C at best. "You're going to get these nights," said coach Claude Noel. "But we found a way to get it done."

 

"ï"ï UP NEXT:

The Jets begin a three-game week on the road with a contest at Montreal's Bell Centre on Tuesday night, 6:30 p.m., TSNJets, TSN1290.
