WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Ben Chiarot wanted to play well against the defending Stanley Cup champions.
The defenceman did just that by scoring the tiebreaking goal with 7:09 left in the third period to lead the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-1 victory over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.
"We've been talking about getting on a bit of a roll here," Chiarot said after Winnipeg's third straight win. "We're excited, the Stanley Cup champs coming to town you want to bring your best effort."
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — The Winnipeg Jets didn't get down about a two-goal deficit Monday night.
Bryan Little tied it late in the third period and Jacob Trouba scored in overtime to help the Jets beat the St. Louis Blues 5-4.
Trouba took a pass from Kyle Connor and shot into an open side of the net behind goalie Jake Allen. It was Trouba's first goal of the season.
St. Louis led 3-1 heading into the third before Ben Chiarot and Mark Scheifele got consecutive goals to tie it.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Filip Forsberg dropped his broken stick and raced to the bench for another just as the puck slid around the boards near his skates. He grabbed a new stick from the Predators' equipment manager, fought off Jets defenseman Ben Chiarot and kept the puck onside.
Then he skated toward Connor Hellebuyck, holding off Chiarot as he scored, then slid into the net .
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Wild were hit with a major setback in their first-round playoff matchup with Winnipeg, a broken sternum for left wing Zach Parise suffered in the last game that will keep him out for at least the remainder of the series and likely longer if they advance.
The Wild revealed the injury about three hours before Game 4 against the Jets, with a vague announcement on Tuesday by general manager Chuck Fletcher that declared Parise's status as "week to week."
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Patrik Laine promised he'll do better next time. At least until he gets the better of Alex Ovechkin.
Laine scored twice to extend his point streak to 15 games and tie Ovechkin for the NHL goal lead, and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Dallas Stars 4-3 on Sunday night to match the franchise wins record at 43.
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice pointed to 19-year-old scoring star Patrik Laine's feet.
"His feet. His skating. He's driving harder," Maurice said. "He's skating better with and without the puck and, because of that, his timing is right and everything else is falling into place for him. It's all in his feet."
NEW YORK (AP) — Winnipeg Jets defenseman Ben Chiarot was fined $3,763 by the NHL on Saturday for butt-ending Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry.
Chiarot brought the butt-end of his stick up into Perry's jaw as the two battled for a puck in front of Winnipeg's net in the second period of the Jets' 4-1 road victory Friday. The hit drew blood and Perry required stitches.
