Kyle Wellwood scored 8 seconds into the game, and the reborn Winnipeg Jets earned their first win by beating the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 on Monday night. Tanner Glass netted Winnipeg's other goal, Alex Burmistrov had two assists, and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 28 shots to earn the win for the Jets - formerly the Atlanta Thrashers. Zbynek Michalek had the only goal for Pittsburgh, which got 33 saves from Marc-Andre Fleury. Heading into the game, the Jets (1-3) were one of three winless NHL teams. The other two, the New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets, were idle Monday. Pittsburgh (3-2-2), which played without top forwards Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, has lost two in a row.
