★★ Andrew Ladd, LW, Jets: Two goals for the Jets captain, who now has six this season. Both as a result of solid passes — the first from Blake Wheeler, the second from Evander Kane — and his quick hands.

★★★ Ilya Bryzgalov, G, Flyers: Jet fans serenaded him all night, but he was steady in kicking out 24 of 16 shots.
