Winnipeg Jets Bounce Back with 6-3 Win Over Blues

With their season decidedly on the line, the Jets displayed far better jump than they had previously shown and clawed their way back into the series, dropping the Blues 6-3 at Enterprise Center on Sunday night.

Looked pretty good in St. Louis.

We didn't have to reinvent the wheel, or pull an A-game out of the bag where we'd been playing bad first two games. "Tonight, it was nice to have everyone contribute".

Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele each had a goal and one assist for the Jets, Patrik Laine also scored and Dustin Byfuglien had a pair of assists.

"You've got to win four games to win a series", Wheeler said. We're real comfortable with where our game is at, but we've got to keep building and keep getting better.

The Jets went on the power play 3:58 into the first period after O'Reilly was called for tripping, but Scheifele took an interference penalty 1:03 into the man advantage. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 28 shots.

But the Jets grabbed the lead for good when they scored three times in a span of 4:01 in the second.

NOTES: The Blues held a 23-14 margin in shots on goal after two periods. But Tanev and Byfuglien responded for Winnipeg, running its lead back out to 5-2 with 11:54 left.

"He was good. We didn't need him to be the best player on our team because when you throw up six you've got a little bit of a cushion there", said Maurice.

Andrew Copp leads the Jets with a plus-20 in 69 games played this season. "But we've got to give them credit". He had just one goal in his last 19 regular-season games.

Laine scored five goals in an 8-4 win in St. Louis on November 24, 2018.

"We just stayed within our game and tried to play it simple", Laine said.

Hellebuyck made a big stop on Pat Maroon just seconds before Tanev's goal. Rookie Jordan Binnington made 26 saves.

Winnipeg's Bryan Little and then Mathieu Perreault would attest to Binnington's brilliance, both being stymied on stellar scoring chances from in close.

This is only the fourth time the Blues have won the first two games of a series while starting on the road, and they are 3-0.

"The biggest thing is we didn't play our game tonight", Tarasenko said. "It was not our best game out there. It's on us, and we'll handle it tomorrow".

Blues: 8-1-1, averaging 3.8 goals, 7.1 assists, 2.3 penalties and 4.9 penalty minutes while giving up 2.3 goals per game with a.916 save percentage. The Blues failed on their first seven power-play attempts in the series prior to Perron's first-period goal.

St. Louis coach Craig Berube said the Jets had his team on their heels for most of the first period and that sort of set the tone.
