The Jets picked up the victory over the Kings to improve their record to 2-1 on the season.
For those who would like to take a deeper dive into the advanced stats here are the results from tonight’s game via Natural Stat Trick.
– Mark Scheifele scored his first of the season
– Fun fact: Scheifele had never scored a goal against LA before and has now scored against all NHL teams;
– Kyle Connor got the go ahead goal in the 2nd, which was his third goal of the season;
– Kings goalie Jack Campbell was excellent keeping his team in the game.
Coach Maurice: On the Jets discipline. Was that a game that looked like the style they expect to see from Winnipeg? On Brandon Tanev getting time with the top line, was that by design? Did he like what he saw from Tanev? On the Jets defensive game. Thoughts on Ilya Kovalchuk’s game. What are the keys to getting comfortable playing with the lead in a tight game? Did he feel like Ehlers took on the shooters mentality that he needed to? Did he see more confidence in Jack Roslovic?
The Jets are scheduled to practice tomorrow at Bell MTS Place at 12 noon before the depart for Nashville. They will take on the Predators on Thursday night.
