 ★ Tomas Plekanec, Montreal. Not sure if he meant to, but banking in a power-play goal in the third decided the game.

 ★★ Olli Jokinen, Jets. Plus player, two points. Starting to look at home in this lineup.

 ★★★ Brendan Gallagher, Montreal. Rookie had another goal, looks like the real deal.

Mark Scheifele was a healthy scratch for the third game in a row and the Jets are mum on anything concerning their 19-year-old forward beyond the given day. Scheifele took extra drills and skating Tuesday morning in Montreal, as is the custom when a player sits out. If Scheifele plays three more games for the Jets, the first year of his entry-level contract will take effect but there is no time rule that says when he must be returned to his juinor team in Barrie, Ont.


The Jets stayed over in Montreal with rest in mind, and fly to Florida today. Their three-game road trip continues Thursday night with a game in Sunrise, Fla., against the Panthers (6:30 p.m., TSN Jets, TSN1290).
