Winnipeg Jets

Jets 5 Maple Leafs 2

Free Press Three Stars

1 Nik Antropov, Jets

Pretty effective against his old team; 3 points, +2.

2 Dustin Byfuglien, Jets

More than 25 minutes, was involved and dealt with Toronto's speed pretty well.

3 Blake Wheeler, Jets

Two important goals on Tuesday, especially the quick-response goal early in the second that put the Jets ahead to stay.

Do it again

The two teams played with an edge Tuesday night, and more fun is likely later in the week when the Jets and Leafs meet for the third time this season, this time in Toronto on Saturday on Hockey Night in Canada.

Margin for victory

For all the close games they've played this season, this was the first time the Jets have held a four-goal lead on an opponent. That made it quite a bit easier to make their mark 9-1-0 when leading after two periods. Another factor -- Winnipeg led after Tuesday's first period, only the second time this season the Jets have been ahead at home after 20 minutes. It sure seems to make a difference with the 15,004 faithful.
