Game 15: Jets 6 Oilers 5 post-game recap

Post-game from the Jets players as well as from Coach Maurice.

The Jets and Oilers decided to play some firewagon hockey tonight in Edmonton to kick off this four-game road trip for Winnipeg.  It was chaotic, it was entertaining, and for the Jets it was successful as they held on for a 6-5 regulation win, after blowing leads of 4-1 and 5-2. The Jets improve to 9-5-1 on the season.

Game Highlights:


Mark Scheifele is the first Jets player to eclipse the 20 point mark for the 2020-2021 season.

Nikolaj Ehlers is the first Jets player to hit double digits in goals as he scored his 10th of the season.

Mason Appleton’s goal gave him 4G 5A on the season which is one more than he had all of last season in 41 fewer games. Appleton is now one back of his career high for points which he set in 2018-19 and also one back of tying his high for goals with five which he set last season.

With that game-winner by Blake Wheeler he moves into a tie with Bryan Little for second overall for the franchise with 32.
