Down Laine and Scheifele, Jets Even Series With Flames 1-1

Featured Video Play Icon

Game Notes:

The Flames won the first game in this series, but the takeaway was that Winnipeg lost both Mark Scheifele and Patrik Laine in Game 1. Both are questionable for the second game and going down two in a best-of-five series would be disastrous for the Jets. There could be some animosity leading into the rematch.

The box scores were fairly even, but by the end of the first period, it was 1-0 Winnipeg after Jansen Harkins gave the Jets the lead. As the second period rolled along, early, the Jets had a chance to increase the lead with a two-man advantage. They weren’t able to capitalize and missed Laine’s one-timer on the power play (Laine and Scheifele counted for 42% of Winnipeg’s power play goals during the season), but in five-on-five play Adam Lowry scored to put the Jets up by two.

Elias Lindhom made it a one-goal game with a good forecheck and the energy ramped up for both teams right after. Exactly six minutes later, Sam Bennett scored to tie the game. The two teams headed into the 2nd intermission even.

Midway through the third, Nikolaj Ehlers broke the tie with a power play goal for Winnipeg.

Calgary pulled their goaltender with just under two minutes remaining in the third and Johnny Gaudreau drew a penalty with 37.6 seconds remaining. Calgary on won the faceoff but Winnipeg cleared. With seconds left, Calgary couldn’t manage to shuffle anything to the net and Blake Wheeler hit the post on an open net. It didn’t matter as the Jets won 3-2.
