Game 6: Oilers 4 Jets 3 post-game recap

Post-game from the Jets dressing room as well as from Coach Maurice.

The Jets didn’t start this game looking like the team that had played last night as they came out with a strong opening period.  Some good work by Mathieu Perreault got the puck from behind the net to Adam Lowry who made no mistake to give the Jets a 1-0 lead.  Nikolaj Ehlers continues to look dangerous as he created another fantastic chance which Andrew Copp converted to make it 2-0 but the Oilers successfully challenged for goalie interference.  Winnipeg held a 16-9 shot edge after 20 minutes.

The middle frame was a total flipping of the script as Edmonton came out flying quickly tying the game and continuing to apply pressure all period long.  Eventually they would take the lead off a Kyle Turris goal.  Shots were 19-5 at one point until a late power play allowed the Jets to increase their shot total to six shots in the period.  The Jets looked like a team that had played five games in seven days.

The final frame looked like the Jets had regained their mojo which saw Nikolaj Ehlers tied the game off a nifty pass by Paul Stastny followed by a Blake Wheeler bank shot on the power play to give the Jets a 3-2 lead late in the 3rd.  However the Oilers weren’t gonna go away and they tied it up on a delayed penalty and then put a dagger in the Jets with a game-winning goal scored with 0.7 seconds left in the 3rd. Winnipeg falls to 4-2-0 on the season.
