Free Press ★★★

 ★ Evander Kane, left-winger, Jets: He’s got it going now, rolling through opposition defences like a tank through a poppy field. Two goals on seven shots, an assist and a pair of hits.

 ★ Olli Jokinen, centre, Jets: A pair of goals for the Big Finn, who was working primarily with Anthony Peluso — who had two assists — and James Wright.

 ★★★ Ryan Callahan, right-winger, Rangers: The best of the Rangers with a goal, seven shots and five hits.

Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist on Kane’s second goal, the game-winner: "I’ve gone over it a couple of times and I’ve tried to find out a reason for why I picked it up a little late. It doesn’t matter. I need to stop it. It’s a tough one. It really is."


New York has now dropped four straight to fall to 8-8-2. "We can say all the things we want to say, we just have to stay with it," said Rangers coach John Tortorella. "We’ll come to work tomorrow, see what our health is, keep on going abour our business each day."


Winnipeg now heads home to face the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night. Game time is 7 p.m. The Washington Capitals visit Saturday afternoon at 2 o’clock.
