MILESTONE WATCH:

Blake Wheeler's first-period goal was the 100th of his career... Martin St. Louis' second-period assist was the 939th point of his career, moving him out of a tie with Jason Arnott for sole possession of 91st place on the NHL's all-time scoring list.

 

NOTABLE:

St. Louis has a six-game point streak (1G, 5A) alive against the Jets... Winnipeg is now 9-3-1 when scoring first.

 

QUOTABLE:

Tampa coach Jon Cooper when asked what his biggest challenge was after becoming an NHL coach:

"Seriously? It was finding out where the locker-room was when we got off the bus. You have to pretend you're on the phone... I get off the bus first and so I'd pretend I'm on the phone and let most of the guys walk and then I'll be right behind them to the locker-room."

 

 UP NEXT:

The Jets chartered home immediately after the game Saturday night and are back on home ice on Tuesday against the St. Louis Blues (7 p.m.; TSN-Jets/TSN 1290).
