– Corey Perry and Joe Morrow dropped the gloves in Morrow’s first game back after being injured in a fight;
– No scoring in the middle frame;
– Kyle Connor deflected Tyler Myers’ point shot past John Gibson to give Jets a 2-0 lead in 3rd period;

Coach Maurice:  What did he like about his club’s performance, especially defensively?  Did he like that his club was able to get two goals in the 3rd?  Is he seeing more confidence from his younger players in 3rd periods?  Play of Trouba and Myers.  “Haven’t been pretty wins but getting the job done”.  On the Jets pushing back physically against the Ducks.
