Mark Scheifele posted a goal and an assist while Mark Stuart and Adam Lowry also scored for the Jets, who have ripped off four straight wins. “ I thought we did a really good job of 5- on- 5 play tonight,” said Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice. “ We were able to control the puck real well and any time we did have a breakdown Ondrej was there for us.” Braden Holtby turned aside 21 shots for the Capitals, who had a three- game winning streak snapped. “ I thought we were playing really good in the first period,” said Washington head coach Barry Trotz. “ But then they got that second goal in and it seemed like we were chasing a lot. We had some quality chances, but just couldn’t get anything past Pavelec.” The Jets scored the only goal they needed 11: 46 into the first as Drew Stafford skated in down the left wing and from behind the net fired a pass out front.

Jimmy Hayes tallied in regulation for the Panthers, winners of two straight and five of seven to pull within four points of the final wild- card berth in the Eastern Conference. Roberto Luongo ended up with 26 stops. Jaromir Jagr participated in his 1,540th NHL contest, tying him with Johnny Bucyk for 12th place on the all- time list. Patrice Bergeron netted the lone goal for the Bruins, who just so happen to hold that final postseason berth despite having dropped four in a row but two beyond regulation. First Period 1.

Att. at Sunrise, FL — 17,044 Justin Fontaine recorded a goal and an assist and the Minnesota Wild struck early and often in a 6- 3 victory over the St. Louis Blues. The Wild followed up two unanswered first- period goals with three more in the second en route to their second win over the Blues in a week. Minnesota posted a 3- 1 decision between the Central Division rivals in St. Louis last Saturday. In this one, the Wild battered Blues netminder Brian Elliott for four goals on 16 shots before he was removed in favor of Jake Allen 4: 05 into the second period. First Period 1.

Att. at St. Paul, MN — 19,204 Radim Vrbata’s third- period goal on an extended power play was the difference in the Vancouver Canucks’ 4- 1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in a key Pacific Division clash. Vrbata’s game- winner came 4: 05 into the third on a 5- on- 3 created when Kings forward Tyler Toffoli was assessed a five- minute major and a game misconduct for shoving Vancouver’s Alex Burrows into the boards from behind with the game tied at 1- 1. Daniel Sedin and Bo Horvat tacked on empty- net goals in the final minute to seal the Canucks’ fifth win in seven games, while Vrbata added an assist on Nick Bonino’s second- period score to support Eddie Lack’s 25 saves. Vancouver entered the day in second place in the Pacific, two points ahead of the Kings and one in front of Calgary. First Period No Scoring. Penalties — Carter LA ( hooking) 9: 25. Second Period 1.

Att. at Los Angeles, CA — 18,230 Cam Talbot made 28 saves, then two more in a shootout to lead the New York Rangers to a 3- 2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night. Mats Zuccarello beat Anton Khudobin with a forehand deke for the only goal in the shootout after J. T. Miller and Jesper Fast scored in regulation for New York. The Rangers rebounded from a 1- 0 loss to Chicago on Wednesday night, winning for the sixth time in seven games to remain two points behind Montreal for first place in the Eastern Conference.
