A controversial end to this one sees the Minnesota Wild take it 3-2 in OT after the Jets felt there was goalie interference on Eric Staal’s game winning goal. The Jets fall to 22-16-4 on the season.
For those who would like to take a deeper dive into the advanced stats here are the results from the game via Natural Stat Trick.
– Mark Scheifele scored his 20th goal of the season (it’s Scheifele’s fifth straight season with 20 or more goals);
– Mark Scheifele with 1G 1A;
– Neal Pionk set a career high for points with his 27th point in game 42 (Last year he had 26 points in 73 games for the Rangers)
Coach Maurice: Did he get an explanation? Thoughts on the OT winner. Did the Jets sit back in the 3rd? Thoughts on the penalty kill? Did he feel it was a missed call when Morrissey was hit from behind? Can the anger at the way the game was lost be turned into something positive?
Jets bench boss Paul Maurice on the OT winner: “It’s goalie interference all day long for me. There’s not a lot of grey area on that one but I’m not giving them any money. Not one dime.”. Plenty of folks commenting on our insta.
