Winnipeg Jets Beaten By Edmonton

Jets Beaten By Edmonton

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets must have had the wrong start time in their calendars yesterday afternoon only showing up in the third period as the Edmonton Oilers beat them 4-2 at Canada Life Centre.

Edmonton took a three-goal lead a little over halfway through the game, with Zach Hyman scoring during a disastrous first period where the Oilers outshot the Jets 15-5, and Kailer Yamamoto and Connor McDavid scoring in the second. The Jets woke up in the third with goals from Adam Lowry and Kyle Connor but their comeback bid was thwarted after being on the power play with an empty net goal by Darnell Nurse. The Jets were a terrible 1 for 6 on the power play yesterday, including a 90 second stretch in the first period with two Oilers in the penalty box. Connor Hellebuyck was peppered with 39 shots making 36 saves. Oilers goaltender Mikko Koskinen pretty much had the first two periods off only facing 16 shots, and then 8 more in the third making 22 saves for the win.

Winnipeg is 4-2-1 since the all-star break and will embark on a four-game trip starting Monday afternoon against Calgary. Puck drop is 3pm (TSN3, 680 CJOB/Power 97).
