Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) – Mathieu Perreault’s redirection goal came
only 17 seconds into overtime and lifted Winnipeg to a 3-2 victory over
hapless Edmonton at MTS Centre.
The Jets controlled the puck following the faceoff to begin the extra session,
and on the dump-in to the Edmonton zone, Evander Kane fished the puck away
from the left-wing boards.
He dished to the point for Jacob Trouba, whose wrister was tipped en route by
Perreault to end the contest.
Trouba finished with a goal and two assists while Dustin Byfuglien supplied
the other marker for the Jets, who improved to 2-2 in games decided by the
five-minute overtime period.
