Winnipeg Jets 2 Carolina Hurricanes 1 (Jets 28-25-5, Road 14-14-1) – With the win the Jets move to three games above the five hundred mark for the first time this year, while getting their road record to an even .500. The Jets have now won nine of their last 11, and five of their last six road games. With the win they moved to within two points of Vancouver in the west, the Canucks holding down the eighth spot. Vancouver lost in Boston, while the other big game saw Dallas win in Phoenix. The Jets do jump ahead of Nashville, and are now tied with Dallas, one point behind Phoenix. It was the Jets 33rd one-goal game of the season. The first period was scoreless with some careless play by both teams leading to a number of scoring chances, forcing both Ondrej Pavelec and Anton Khudobin to make a number of outstanding saves. The Jets outshot the Hurricanes 11-9. The only goal of the second period came from Andrew Ladd, his 13th of the season. Ladd now 3-7-10 in the last ten games. Ladd buried a rebound of a Micheal Frolik shot, with Bryan Little also picking up an assist, giving him 13 points in the last 14 games. A key part of the game later in the period with Zach Bogosian off for holding, the Jets were nailed with too many men on the ice. So for the eighth time this season the Jets were down two men (51 seconds) and for the eighth straight time they killed it off. Other than a shot off the post, the Hurricanes did not have a shot on goal on the power play. Adam Pardy made a number of key plays including a key blocked shot. Shots in the second were 12-9 Carolina. Riley Nash tied the game early in the third, setting the stage the game winning goal with 1:03 left in regulation. Blake Wheeler started the play with a cross blue line pass to Jacob Trouba in the Carolina end. Trouba took the puck all the way around the Hurricanes goal, tried to get a pass to Mark Scheifele in front, but instead found Chris Thorburn at the edge of the circle who scored his second of the year for the win. Wheeler has 15 points in the last 14 games, Trouba nine points in the last 10 games. Final shots were 29-27 in favour of Carolina. Pavelec is now 7-2 in his last nine games, allowing 20 goals against, including six games where he has allowed two or less. Al Montoya has played the other two in the 9-2 Jets run, allowing one goal in each. Bogosian for the fifth straight game led the Jets in ice time at 25:01, Trouba next at 24:13. Little had five shots on goal, four of which were great scoring chances. Face-offs very much favoured the Hurricanes, who finished at 64%. 37 hits for the Jets, Trouba leading the way with five. Trouba was a plus-1 and is now a plus-14 in the last 11 games to lead the team, Scheifele was a plus-1 and is now a plus-12 in the last 11 games and is second on the team. "It wasnt one of our best games, but we found a way," commented Coach Paul Maurice post-game. "The effort was there, our structure was good, our goalie was good. Huge penalty kills. Just wasnt anything easy about the game but we handled it well." There was a lot of line matching with the Hurricanes wanting Manny Malhotra against the Little line and Eric Staal against the Scheifele line. "Scheifele is Winnipegs dirty little secret, hes a pretty good player. I have no problem putting Scheifele out against anyone." Trouba struggled early in the game handling the puck, but Coach Maurice kept putting him out. "He had a couple of shifts that were unusual. But he wants the puck on his stick with a chance to win the game. He took it low with his head up, and he can make those big plays. Hes been on the ice for a lot of big goals." On the penalty kill, "We got bodies and sticks where they needed to be. A big block by Pardy, that shot was a bomb." Jets continue their four-game trip in Washington Thursday as for the second straight game they renew the old South East Division rivalry. (TSN Jets, TSN 1290).

Now comes an off-season of questions about manager Matt Williams decisions and a handful of key roster choices, including what to do about Ryan Zimmerman, whether to sign Jordan Zimmermann and Ian Desmond to long-term deals, and how to upgrade an offence that fell flat in October.OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators have a big week ahead and cant get caught up dwelling on one game — even if its against former captain Daniel Alfredsson. The Senators will face Alfredsson for the first time Wednesday since the 40-year-old chose to leave Ottawa and sign with the Detroit Red Wings as a free agent this past summer. Alfredssons decision came as a shock to many, and while fans might still be reeling, the players say theyve moved on, adding Wednesdays game in Detroit is more about two points on the road and beating a division rival than facing a former teammate. "Its more (weird) for him," said new captain Jason Spezza. "Were used to seeing one guy move on and play for a different team and play against teammates youve played with. It will be different because its Alfie, but I think it will be harder for him playing against Ottawa because its the only place hes ever played." Senators coach Paul MacLean has great memories from his own time in Detroit, where he served as an assistant coach to Mike Babcock. But as far as hes concerned, this is just one more game on the schedule. "Were just going there to play the Red Wings," said MacLean. "Thats all my focus is on is were playing the Red Wings. Thats a big enough task in my book. "They have lots of good players. Daniel is one of them so our focus is on the Red Wings and how they play as a team, not one guy." MacLean has reason to worry. Going into Mondays games, the Red Wings led the Atlantic Division, with Alfredsson putting up one goal and nine points through his first nine games. Meanwhile, the Senators were sixth. Senators tough guy Chris Neil says it will be a little strange to see Alfredsson in a different jersey, but says he wont get any special treatment. If the opportunity to finish a check on Alfredsson arises, he wont think twice. "At the end of the day hes just on another team," said Neil, who spent 11 seasons with Alfredsson.dddddddddddd "Its not like hes not our friend, but youve got to go out and play hard against him. For us we want to get the two points and thats the bottom line. Its no different than playing other friends on other teams." While the Senators seem to have adjusted to life without Alfredsson, there is perhaps no one who misses him more than Erik Karlsson. The Senators defenceman lived with Alfredsson and his family as a rookie and the two Swedes were extremely close. "Its been very different," Karlsson said. "Hes been here as long as Ive been here and longer than that as well. Its just something that you were used to and someone you were used to having around all the time. Its different, but its going well. Im still a happy guy and even though I miss him were still talking every once in a while so its all good." As for facing his former mentor, Karlsson doesnt anticipate it being as big a deal as many are making it out to be. "Its going to be different in a way, but I think once the game starts its not going to be on anyones mind its going to be like a regular game. Maybe if we see him before the game and after its going to be a little bit weird, but once the puck drops I think its going to be just like normal." Alfredsson had a great deal of influence on the franchise and the community and Neil understands the emotional impact the former captains departure has had, but he says everyone needs to move on. "The city of Ottawa is going to miss him and as teammates of his for so long we miss him too, but he turned the page. Weve got to turn the page too," he said. "You dont dwell on it, you just go out, focus on the task at hand and thats to beat the Detroit Red Wings."
