Lightning 1, Jets 0

Associated Press  |  Last updated October 29, 2011
Dwayne Roloson made 28 saves in his 29th career shutout, Vincent Lecavalier scored a power-play goal late in the second period and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Winnipeg Jets 1-0 on Saturday night. Tampa Bay has won 12 consecutive games against the Atlanta-Winnipeg franchise. The last victory in the series for the relocated Jets came on Oct. 3, 2009, when Atlanta beat Tampa Bay 6-3. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 26 shots for the Jets, who were coming off a 9-8 win Thursday at Philadelphia. Lecavalier scored with 39.2 seconds left in the second. His tough-angle shot from below the right circle beat Pavelec. Roloson, making his first start since a 7-4 loss to Florida on Oct. 17, made a leg save on Evander Kane's in-close shot in the second. He improved to 10-0-0 in 14 games against the Atlanta-Winnipeg club. Roloson entered with a 1-2-1 record and 4.54 goals-against average in his previous five games. The shutout was his first since Feb. 1 against Philadelphia, a span of 29 games. Pavelec made 23 saves through two, including a power-play rebound shot by Lecavalier midway through the second. Steven Stamkos extended his point streak to six games (two assists, seven points) with an assist on Lecavalier's goal. Winnipeg's Alexander Burmistrov had his six-game point streak snapped. He had three goals and eight points during that stretch. NOTES: Roloson came off the bench to stop all 10 shots he faced in Thursday's 5-3 loss at Nashville. ... Winnipeg recalled G Peter Mannino from St. John's of the AHL. Jets G Chris Mason is sidelined by a groin strain. ... Tampa Bay RW Ryan Shannon was in the lineup after being a healthy scratch the previous four games. ... The Jets placed D Derek Meech, who has a lower-body injury, on injured reserve and announced that forward Brett MacLean was claimed off waivers by Phoenix.
