Gagnon’s first goal helps Jets win 4-1

, , Leave a comment

Wellwood scored first for the Jets, a wrist shot from the slot off a pass from Evander Kane just under five minutes into the second period that beat Ryan Miller.. It was rinse and repeat as Gagnon fired a slap shot from the same spot on a pass from Dustin Byfuglien.. Just before the period ended, Bryan Little and Ladd got a jump on a race to the Sabres’ net and Ladd fired one past a prone Miller.. Wheeler finished things with an empty-netter just before the end of the third period.. The Jets dominated early: The first period looked like a Winnipeg power play until the last few minutes.. It took almost seven minutes for the Sabres to put a shot on the board.. Both teams struck out on their power-play opportunities, two for the Sabres and one for the Jets.. Both defenseman Tobias Enstrom and Little headed to the Winnipeg dressing room during the first.. Little was hit by a puck fired by a teammate but it wasn’t clear what happened to Enstrom.. Little returned, Enstrom did not. source: http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/04/09/3333171/gagnons-first-goal-helps-jets.html

Kane scores twice as Jets tame Panthers

Brennan and Tomas Fleischmann scored for the Panthers (13-21-6), who remain in the Eastern Conference cellar.. Gagnon got things started with his second career NHL goal.. He was parked in front of the net and deflected Blake Wheeler’s shot from the point at 3:54 past Jacob Markstrom.. Less than a minute later though, Brennan deflected one past Winnipeg goaltender Ondrej Pavelec to even things up.. Kane waited a whole 18 seconds to tip a slow-motion puck past a sprawling Markstrom to put the Jets ahead again.. but Fleischmann scored less than a minute and a half later with a wrist shot that slipped under Pavelec’s leg.. Winnipeg coach Claude Noel then called a time out to try and settle things down and it seemed to work.. Ladd put the Jets back in front with a 3-2 lead at the 12:42 mark of the first.. Winnipeg outshot the Panthers 17-9 in the opening 20 minutes of play.. Florida put on more pressure in the second but it was the Jets who scored, starting just past the 10-minute mark when Bryan Little fed Clitsome in the slot on a power play.. Byfuglien drilled one past Markstrom from the point just 28 seconds later and Kane dashed in behind the sprawling goaltender to slip one into an empty net at 11:58.. That was enough for coach Kevin Dineen who put veteran Scott Clemmensen in the net. source: http://www.canada.com/entertainment/movie-guide/Kane+scores+twice+Jets+tame+Panthers/8231407/story.html

Aaron Gagnon, Andrew Ladd, Grant Clitsome, Dustin Byfuglien and Chris Thorburn also scored to help Winnipeg win its third straight and increase its points total to 44.. The Jets also remained two points behind Southeast Division-leading Washington.. T.J.. Brennan and Tomas Fleischmann scored for Florida.. The Jets led 3-2 lead after a wild first period that featured four goals in less than 3 minutes.. “There’s a part of the game you’re going to go through where you have situations like that, where maybe it’s not ideal,” Ladd said.. “But we’re still winning the game 3-2 and it settled the guys down and (we) moved forward.” Gagnon got things started with his second career NHL goal.. He was parked in front of the net and deflected Blake Wheeler’s shot from the point past Jacob Markstrom at 3:54.. Less than a minute later, Brennan deflected one past Winnipeg’s Ondrej Pavelec.. Kane scored 18 seconds later, tipping the puck past a sprawling Markstrom to put the Jets ahead again, but Fleischmann countered with a wrist shot that slipped under Pavelec’s leg.. Winnipeg coach Claude Noel then called a timeout to try and settle things down and it seemed to work. source: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/hockey/nhl/gameflash/2013/04/11/30979_recap.html

Evander Kane scores twice, Jets beat Panthers 7-2 for third straight victory

Less than a minute later, Brennan deflected one past Winnipeg’s Ondrej Pavelec.. Kane scored 18 seconds later, tipping the puck past a sprawling Markstrom to put the Jets ahead again, but Fleischmann countered with a wrist shot that slipped under Pavelec’s leg.. Winnipeg coach Claude Noel then called a timeout to try and settle things down and it seemed to work.. “It was back and forth — it’s not ideally what you’d like but there’s an opponent too you know — we wanted to get things back on track,” Noel said.. “I thought we did a great job straightening it out.” Ladd put the Jets back in front at 3-2 lead at the 12:42 mark of the first.. “It wasn’t in anyone’s plans (the wide-open first period), but that’s how it happened and you’ve just got to move on,” Panthes enforcer George Parros said.. Florida put on more pressure in the second, but the Jets added to their lead, starting just past the 10-minute mark when Bryan Little fed Clitsome in the slot on a power play.. Byfuglien drilled one past Markstrom from the point 28 seconds later, and Kane dashed in behind the sprawling goaltender to slip one into an empty net at 11:58.. That was enough for coach Kevin Dineen, who put veteran Scott Clemmensen in the net.. The frustrated Panthers ended the second by handing the Jets a five-on-three power play.. It started with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against Parros after he failed to goad Chris Thorburn into a fight, followed by an illegal check to Little’s head by Eric Gudbranson. source: http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2013/04/12/evander-kane-scores-twice-jets-beat-panthers-7-2-for-third-straight-victory/

Jets want to resurrect Winnipeg White Out as they close in on NHL playoff berth

Their first line is really good.” The Hurricanes’ top line of Eric Staal, Alexander Semin and Jiri Tlusty has racked up 114 points in 42 games this season, including nine points in their last three games against Winnipeg.. The Jets’ top line of Ladd, Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler isn’t too shabby, either, combining for seven goals and 15 assists in their four-game winning streak.. Head coach Claude Noel said the trio is getting more “mature” and in sync in its second season together.. “You’ve really got to tip your hat to the three of them,” he said.. “They’ve really done a good job of becoming a top line in the National Hockey League, whereas before or even last year we were like, ‘Well, are they or aren’t they or what are they?'” Ladd leads the Jets with 18 goals and 41 points.. Wheeler is next with 16 goals and 35 points.. Kane has 16 goals and 31 points and Little follows with 28 points from six goals and 22 assists.. But every Winnipeg player is going to have to boost their production in the last five games of the regular season with the tight races for playoff spots in the conference.. The Jets also host the seventh-place New York Islanders on Saturday, a team that’s three points ahead of them.. Then it’s out on the road to face Buffalo (four points back) and the red-hot Washington Capitals, who lead the Southeast Division with four more points than Winnipeg. source: http://news.yahoo.com/jets-want-resurrect-winnipeg-white-close-nhl-playoff-204648694–spt.html
