Evander Kane provided the pre-game speech and the third-period spark. The Winnipeg Jets winger ignited a comeback from 3-1 down against St. Louis Friday night with his fourth goal of the season. And while it was a bit of a ping-pong job bouncing off at least one St. Louis stick on its way past Brian Elliott it did the job the Jets stopping the bleeding and collecting a critical two points with a 4-3 win in the shootout. “My goal was a bit of a lucky goal just throwing the puck at the net” Kane acknowledged. “And it’s a one-goal game.” That was just enough to put some doubt in the Blues who’d played a taxing one in Chicago the night before and some extra jump in the Jets who appeared well on their way to a fifth loss in their last six. When Toby Enstrom tied it in the final two minutes it was only a matter of when not if the Jets would grab the two points. A seven-round shootout not without its shadowy moments — the Blues scored two quick ones on Ondrej Pavelec — did the trick. It wasn’t always pretty but wins against the heavy-checking Blues rarely are. Down two in the third the Jets appeared done. Coming back no matter how you slice it showed signs of a pumper in the chests of the home side after all. “We showed some heart to battle back to get some key goals” Kane said. “Our attitude from in the room was good.” An attitude that may have started with No. 9 Friday morning.
