The Jets almost doubled the Oilers in shots (41-22) but ultimately the home side won the game 3-2 in regulation and Winnipeg falls to 33-28-6 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.
Coach Maurice: Coming close but finishing without any points. Playoff intensity in that game? What did they do well to keep the Oilers to 20 shots? The Oilers power play. Can he sell this like the Bruins game when they didn’t get any points. How did he like the 1st? On the RNH goal against. Rebounding from this loss. Were they aware of the results of the other NHL games ahead of their game? Any update on Laine/Morrissey? Thoughts on Connor Hellebuyck?
