LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Kings haven't looked like themselves very much lately.

Austin Wagner scored twice and Los Angeles snapped a four-game losing streak Tuesday night with a 4-1 victory over the Jets.
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Kyle Connor wasn't too disappointed about falling short of his first career hat trick.
The third-year forward scored twice as the Winnipeg Jets beat Chicago 6-3 on Tuesday night to give the Blackhawks their eighth straight loss.
Connor nearly had another goal late in the second period when Chicago goalie Cam Ward made an arcing glove grab. He had other opportunities, too.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Minnesota Wild coach Bruce Boudreau is keeping it simple.
"You've got to win four," Boudreau said after the Winnipeg Jets beat the Wild 4-1 on Friday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference first-round series.
The Winnipeg Jets can thank their own St. Patrik for their success this season and potentially for years to come.
Patrik Laine was the consolation prize in the 2016 NHL draft behind generational talent Auston Matthews. But he has been a cause for celebration in Winnipeg as a franchise-changing superstar at age 19.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Bryan Little made sure Winnipeg went into the All-Star break with at least one overtime victory. In a season filled with success, the Jets finally got two points in their eighth overtime contest.

Hellebuyck made 21 saves for his first shutout of the season, captain Blake Wheeler had a goal and three assists, and the Winnipeg Jets crushed the Ottawa Senators 5-0 on Sunday night.

NEW YORK (AP) — Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas was suspended for 10 games without pay by the NHL on Sunday for slashing Winnipeg Jets forward Mathieu Perreault.
Gudas was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct for slashing midway through the first period in the Flyers' 3-2 loss at Winnipeg on Thursday night.
Gudas is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and, based on his average annual salary, will forfeit $408,537.
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — A little chat for Winnipeg's fourth line paid off in a big way.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Patrik Laine has felt good about his game of late, even though he hasn't been getting a lot of goals. His reward finally came on Tuesday night.
The 18-year-old rookie scored twice and Mark Scheifele had a goal and an assist as the Winnipeg Jets beat the St. Louis Blues 5-2 for their season-high fifth straight victory.
Laine hadn't scored since missing a game on March 26 with the flu. He finally feels all the way back.
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Blake Wheeler admitted it was a slow start for the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.
That's accurate, considering it took more than six minutes for either the Jets or Philadelphia Flyers to get a shot on goal.
But once the scoreless first period was done, Wheeler got things rolling with linemates Mark Scheifele and Mathieu Perreault as the Jets earned their third consecutive victory with a 3-2 win over Philadelphia.
NEW YORK (AP) — The well-rested and high-scoring Winnipeg Jets took advantage of a New York Islanders team that looked tired Thursday night.

Mathieu Perreault and Adam Lowry also scored for the Jets, who had their game Tuesday in Newark, New Jersey, against the Devils postponed because of a snowstorm.
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Mathieu Perreault thought he would try to take advantage of being left-handed — and it worked.
After some of his Winnipeg teammates couldn't beat Roberto Luongo on his glove side, the forward flipped in a forehand shot in the sixth round of the shootout to give the Jets a 4-3 victory over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night. The Jets ended a four-game losing streak.
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Patrik Laine's first NHL goal was special in many ways.
It came on the power play. His parents from Finland were in the stands. It drew a roar from Winnipeg Jets fans like none he'd heard before.
And, more importantly, it helped the Jets come back from a 4-1 third-period deficit to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-4 in overtime Thursday night.
