Free Press ★★★
★ Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec turned back 41 of 43 shots and was especially stellar during Detroit’s third-period onslaught.
★★ Detroit sniper Pavel Datsyuk accounted for all his team’s goal-scoring with powerplay goals in the first and third periods.
★★★ Jets captain Andrew Ladd had an assist on Winnipeg’s first goal of the game and for the second game in a row scored the shootout winner.

IT'S nice having your game decided in shootouts every night when you start each one up 1-0 thanks to Andrew Ladd.
The Jets captain is a perfect 5-for-5 on shootouts this season and now has three game-winners, including the last two games in a row.
"It's getting a little tiring playing overtime games every night," said Bryan Little, "but the shootouts have been going well for us."
Ladd says his secret is simple. "I just kind of pick a move and stick with it," said Ladd. "And luckily it went in."
