Jets use quick strikes to beat Devils
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- Mathieu Perreault and Mark Scheifele scored less than 2 minutes apart early in the second period, and the Winnipeg Jets beat the New Jersey Devils 3-1 Tuesday night.
Michael Frolik added a goal late in the third to seal the victory.
Perreault got Winnipeg started with his first of the season as he backhanded a high shot past Cory Schneider at 1:54 of the second. Scheifele flicked in linemate Adam Lowry's rebound at 3:38 for his third goal.
Martin Havlat narrowed it to 2-1 on a power play just more than a minute into the third. He poked a loose puck under Jets goalie Michael Hutchinson, who made 21 saves.
