Free Press ★★★

Justin Peters, goalie, Carolina: The Jets didn’t make it difficult for the Canes’ netminder, but he was positionally sound and didn’t spit up an abundance of rebounds for second and third chances.

★★ Alexander Semin, right-winger: Carolina: Just so slick and when he’s involved, he’s dangerous. Finished with a goal and an assist as the Canes top line, including Eric Staal at centre and Jiri Tlusty at left wing, was solid.

★★★ Zach Bogosian, defenceman, Winnipeg: There were spurts from any number of Jets, but Bogosian was probably the most consistent. He was a minus-1, but finished with a game-high nine shots.
