NHL Highlights | Jets vs Flames | Canucks vs Canadiens | Senators vs Oilers


WINNIPEG – Sports – The Winnipeg Jets scored three first-period goals in a solid game to take a 3-2 win against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday.

Trevor Lewis and Derek Forbort each scored his first goal with the Jets (6-3-1), and Laurent Brossoit made 29 saves, 15 of those stops in the third period.

“Obviously [Brossoit] was huge back there for us,” says Lewis. “He made some great stops, but we also made it tough for them to get into the zone … getting in lanes and blocking shots is huge and getting those clears when we can.”

Johnny Gaudreau had an assist to extend his point streak to nine games, and Matthew Tkachuk scored two goals for the Flames (4-4-1). David Rittich made 25 saves in his second loss in as many starts this season.

“It’s just fun out there right now, and we’re just doing so well as a team and all the guys are getting along great,” Toffoli said. “So hopefully we can stick with it and stay together and keep getting better every single day, and that’s what we’re trying to do. I think we’re on the right path right now.”

He’s one of our top guys being around, not just getting chances himself, but being able to create chances for other people, so you’d like to see him get rewarded for that work. Tonight, he got rewarded for it.”
