Pavelec makes 25 saves, wins 100th NHL game

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 25, 2013
Ondrej Pavelec made 25 saves in earning his 100th NHL win, and the Winnipeg Jets snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the New Jersey Devils 3-1 on Monday night. Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane scored in the first two periods as the Jets opened a season-high, six-game road trip by completing a two-game, season-series sweep of the Devils, who lost their second straight game. Devin Setoguchi scored into an empty net in the final minute. Pavelec was less than 10 minutes from his second shutout of the season when Patrik Elias deflected a shot from the point by Andy Greene past him. Elias scored his fifth goal of the season after earlier firing a shot off the crossbar in the second period during a short-handed, 2-on-1 break. The Devils spent most of the third period in the Jets' zone, but Pavelec came up big. He made his best stop against Adam Henrique, who shot from low in the left circle with just over four minutes to play. Scheifele, who scored the Jets' first goal of the season, ended a 24-game goal drought with 3:59 left in the first period on a wide-open shot from the right circle that found the top corner of the net. The goal came on a quick counterattack. Michael Frolik took a cross-ice pass in the defensive zone, skated into the left side of the Devils' end, and sent a cross-ice pass to Scheifele, who came late down the right side. Former Devils forward Matt Halischuk helped set up the shot by allowing Frolik's pass to go through to Scheifele. Kane ended an 11-game goal drought at 7:16 of the second period, just seconds after Devils goalie Martin Brodeur stopped a point blank shot that Olli Jokinen set up with a pass from behind the net. The shot hit Brodeur and dropped right on the goal line. The play was reviewed and the no-goal call was upheld. Jokinen won the ensuing faceoff from Travis Zajac and sent the puck to Kane on the outside edge of the circle. He fired the puck at the net, and it beat Brodeur after possibly hitting off the stick of defenseman Marek Zidlicky. It was his seventh goal of the season and third against New Jersey. NOTES: Jets D Jacob Trouba, the No. 9 pick in the 2012 NHL draft, returned to the lineup after he missed 17 games with an upper-body injury. ... Winnipeg D Dustin Byfuglien had two assists, giving him a team-high 15. ... The Devils were without D Adam Larsson (lower body) and C Stephen Gionta (ankle). They were hurt Saturday at San Jose. ... The Jets beat the Devils 3-0 on Oct. 13 in Winnipeg.
