"We got contributions from a lot of places and Charlie was so strong in net. Just you one of these sixty minute efforts where you know it was only those first five minutes in the third where they (Jets) pushed and were able to get two quick ones. After that I just think we responded really well. And you know didn't panic and kept them from getting too chances after that. So it was a really overall good game tonight," said Eller.

It could have been a two or three goal game instead of a four goal game going into the third. And who knows what happens after that? Now we have a huge game against a Western Conference team, so we’re going to have to be ready for that. They’re a good team.”

The goal was his 17th of the season.

Jets Head Coach Rick Bowness said his club came out flat.

"We didn’t have our legs early, that was clear. They were jumping on us. I thought as the first period went on we got our legs going again. Clearly the coverage on their first goal was a complete breakdown for us. Power play hurt us, you get a four-minute and give up the breakaway and the penalty shot, it kind of sets you on your heels a little bit against a veteran hockey club. They know how to play. I liked how we finished the second period, the last four minutes. We felt we were still in the game, and we were. We made it 4-2 and we just didn’t get that third goal. We started trading chances, but that’s the only way you’re going to get back in the game. Give them credit, they bent a little bit but didn’t break. We had some really good looks at the end of the second. We hit the post. We had some really good looks. Their goalie made some timely saves for them," he said.

Washington visits Chicago Tuesday while Winnipeg hosts Vegas.

But Jets Head Coach Rick Bowness didn't make any bones about how his club started the game, he wasn't happy.

"Good or bad, I don't look at it that way. It's just not right to start a game like that. Listen, I'm the head coach so I'm responsible for the way we start and getting our team prepared. So that starts with me. The second thing is I'm not a babysitter. These guys are men. They're professionals and they're paid to show up here and go to work. My job here is to make that happen. The third thing on that would be: you cannot play this game without passion. Without emotion. You cannot play this game on your heels. And I hate when we're on our heels. It's not right."

Anaheim Head Coach Dallas Eakins said his club played hard but couldn't match the Jets.

“It's hard. You're coming into a game like this, you know your backs are going to be against the wall anyway. Winnipeg had just lost a tough one (to Columbus Friday) and we're playing back-to-back and they're sitting here fresh so you know it's going to be a tough game," said Eakins.

“I thought our guys did a hell of a job throughout the game, leading early and hanging on. The winning goal just comes off of a guy. Our D-man got his feet tangled up with another guy and he falls. If he doesn't fall, we're probably right now in overtime or a shootout.”

Winnipeg closes out a four-game homestand Tuesday when they host Florida while Anaheim returns home to face the Carolina Hurricanes.



Winnipeg, Manitoba (NHN)-Blake Wheeler fired three goals and added an assist and Connor Hellebuyck stopped all 40 shots he faced as the Winnipeg Jets shut out the Colorado Avalanche by a 5-0 score Tuesday night.

The Jets winger netted his 5th, 6th and 7th goal of the NHL season.

Wheeler says he's just happy to be playing well on a good team.

“Just grateful to still be out there and playing a meaningful role on a pretty good hockey team. I’m just enjoying these opportunities. When you’re playing with the guys I get to play with, you’re going to get put in those position. Like I said, I just feel fortunate a few bounces went my way tonight," he said.

Wheeler was much more impressed with the effort of his goaltender on the night.

“He’s (Hellebuyck) been our best player all year. You talk about Josh elevating his game. For a guy whose won a Vezina and been second before, this is the best I’ve seen him play. He’s been the backbone of our team for a long time. He’s just taken his game to another level and given us an opportunity to win every night.”

Hellebuyck's shutout was his third of the season and kicked off a four-game homestand with a key divisional win.

“I felt like I was doing a lot of work, because they can buzz," said Hellebuyck.

"They are a good team over there and they can move the puck well when they move around our zone. But everything was controlled when I was getting it. The guys battled so hard in front of me for those rebounds. I felt that I was part of the win tonight, and it was a good team win.”

Mark Scheifele had a goal and two assists for Winnipeg.

Josh Morrissey had a goal and an assist for the Jets.

Cole Perfetti had three assists for Winnipeg, setting up two of Wheeler's goals.

Blake Wheeler opened the scoring 9:18 into the first, working a give-and-go with Josh Morrissey before moving in from the top of the faceoff circle and beating Colorado goaltender Alaxandar Georgiev blocker side with a low wrister.

Mark Scheifele appeared to give the Jets a 2-0 lead just over two minutes into the second period after he poked a loose puck past Georgiev but Colorado Head Coach Jared Bednar appealed, citing goaltender interference.

The ruling was no goal on the play.

Winnipeg continued to press with Scheifele ringing a puck off the post at 3:10.

The pressure paid off when Josh Morrissey took a Dylan DeMelo feed and beat Georgiev with a slap shot from the left point.

The goal was his 5th of the season.

Wheeler scored his second of the night 13:07 into the second when he capped off a neat three-way passing play by converting a Cole Perfetti backhand past Georgiev to make it 3-0 Jets.

Mark Scheifele made it 4-0 1:22 into the third when he broke in on a 2-on-1 with Kyle Connor before the Jet winger slid a cross crease feed past a sprawling Samuel Girard which Scheiefle tapped into a wide open net.

The goal was his 12th of the season.

Blake Wheeler converted a Cole Perfetti feed at 16:09 to put Winnipeg up 5-0 and score his third of the night.

The goal was his 7th of the season.

Avs forward Andrew Cogliano said they just weren't good enough.

“We obviously didn’t get enough traffic,” Avalanche forward Andrew Cogliano said. “Some pucks were laying there and we weren’t doing a good enough job getting there enough. At the end of the day we have to get more pucks from the top and get more rebounds and create chances that way. They’re a good defensive team. It wasn’t our best night and we’ve got to move on," he said.

Colorado Head Coach Jared Bednar said his club gave up too much ice.

“You look at the goals we gave up, they were odd-man rushes and Grade A scoring chances from them on the rush attack. I thought we were pretty good, actually, protecting the net front once we got into D-zone coverage. That wasn’t our issue. It was the work to get back above pucks in the offensive zone, get numbers back above it to be able to shut down a rush attack. It was sporadic, and when we didn’t do it they capitalized on it," he said.

Jets Head Coach Rick Bowness said it was a statement game by his club.

"No it’s not just another game. I think the message we’re trying to send here is make them worry about us. They’re the defending Stanley Cup Champions, they’re a great hockey team, yeah they are. We’re starting to realize that when we play the right way, and we play the way we’re supposed to play, and play together, we’re a very good hockey club. The message is more about us and the way we want to play. If you look at the game, I thought we gave them way too much respect in the first period, then we started to play our hockey in the second and third, and there was a big difference. That shows me that it’s coming. They’re starting to believe that if we play the right way, play hard, good things will happen for us. So was it a big game against the Stanley Cup champions, yeah, but I’m putting more focus on us and how we play," he said.

Colorado visits Buffalo Thursday while Winnipeg hosts Columbus on Friday.


Morrissey's OT goal lifts Jets to 4-3 win

Winnipeg, Manitoba (NHN)-Josh Morrissey's goal 2:50 into overtime lifted the Winnipeg Jets to a 4-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes Monday night.

Pierre-Luc Dubois picked up a loose puck and circled behind his own net before hitting Morrissey with a breakaway stretch pass at center ice.

The Jet defenceman cruised in and drifted a wrister past Hurricanes goaltender Pytor Kochetkov to seal the win for the Jets.

Morrissey had a pair of goals on the night.

"I felt we were able to create a turnover. We got control of the puck. I kind of just took off when one of their guys changed. Sometimes that's how it works. In overtime, if you can turn the puck over quick and transition the other way, you can create an odd man rush. Dubie made a great, heads-up pass and from there, I just tried to go in and score a goal," said Morrissey.

Winnipeg had control of the game until Carolina came to life in the third period, firing three goals in a span of 4:09 to tie the contest and send it to overtime after Canes Head Coach Rod Brind'Amour opted to pull his goaltender with over five minutes remaining in regulation.

The move paid off as Carolina fired three straight goals to push the game into overtime.

Andrei Svechnikov, who scored the Hurricanes second goal said his club just wouldn't quit.

"You know I'm in my fifth year here and our team it's like uh never give up. It doesn't matter how much we're losing by we just play or try to play hard every shift," he said. "We played good today you know just a bit unlucky."

Pierre-Luc Dubois had a goal and two assists on the night, including his breakaway pass on Morrissey's game winning tally.

Mikey Eyssimont also scored for Winnipeg, who moved to 11-5-1.

Blake Wheeler had a pair of assists.

David Rittich made 24 saves for the Jets and has won his last three starts.

Jaccob Slavin, Andrei Svechnikov and David Necas scored for the Hurricanes.

Sebastian Aho had three assists for Carolina.

Pytor Kochetkov turned aside 19 shots for the Canes, who dropped to 10-5-4.

Pierre-Luc Dubois opened the scoring at 18:34 of the first when Blake Wheeler sent him in alone on Pytor Kochetkov as he beat the Carolina goaltender with a low wrister short side to make it 1-0 Winnipeg.

The goal was his 8th of the season.

Mikey Essyimont gave the Jets a 2-0 lead after he followed up on a David Gustafsson breakaway and knocked the disc past Kochetkov 6:44 into the second period.

The goal was the 1st of his NHL career.

The Jets were given a two-man advantage for 1:22 in the second period but failed to score.

Andrei Svechnikov nearly got Carolina on the board with 2:28 left in the second when he was alone in front of Rittich from 15 feet out but the Jets goaltender stopped his wrister point blank.

Josh Morrissey made it 3-0 on an odd man rush just under four minutes into the third when he took a Blake Wheeler feed and moved into the high slot before beating Kochetkov with a low shot.

The goal was his 2nd of the season.

Carolina Head Coach Rod Brind'Amour pulled his goaltender with 5:32 left in the third and the move paid off as Jaccob Slavin scored at 15:12 to pull the Canes to within a pair.

The goal was his first of the season.

Andrei Svechnikov got his stick on a Brent Burns point shot at at 16:52 to pull Carolina to within a goal.

The goal was his 13th of the season.

The Canes pulled their goaltender again and the move paid off as Martin Necas tied the game with 38.8 seconds left in the third to send the game to overtime.

The goal was his 9th of the season.

Carolina Head Coach Rod Brind'Amour said they had discussed pulling his goaltender earlier on during a time out.

“In this game, it didn’t matter. We talked about it at the eight-minute timeout. I’m like, ‘Why don’t we just try something crazy because this game is kind of flat for us.’ But we decided to wait a little longer. You get that one. If they get the fourth one, who cares, the game, it’s irrelevant. So that’s why you’re pulling him earlier and earlier. The trick is, I think, when you’re down two, not to pull him too early because you’re still in the game. So you’ve got to kind of manage that a little bit, but we had nothing to lose, it’s 3-0.”

Jets Head Coach Rick Bowness said the key to getting the win was not panicking after Carolina tied it up late in the third period.

“There was no panic on the bench. Again, sometimes in hockey, you shoot the puck, it gets deflected and goes in. Sometimes you tip it and we might have covered that thing perfectly, it still doesn’t mean it’s not going in the net. Sometimes it does. Just don’t panic, and there was no panic on the bench. OK, we got a point here, let’s go here and make sure we get the extra point. However we got it, we got it. And that’s the most important thing. We got the two points.”

Carolina returns home to host Arizona Wednesday while Winnipeg visits Minnesota in a divsional matchup.
