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.
Second straight season and third time in his last four that Mark Scheifele hits the 40 assist mark in his career.
Nikolaj Ehlers hits the 50 point mark (22G 28A) with his assist on the Jets 2nd period goal. Third time in the last four seasons he has hit the 50 point mark (other two seasons he hit 64 & 60).
Coach Maurice: After being down two goals did he see more of what he liked from his club as the game progressed? Difficulty being behind. Neutral zone issues. What did he see from the Copp line? Goalie plan for tomorrow? How he will try to get Cody Eakin into the lineup? The message/boost of the moves the team has made this week.
