Recap


Mark Stuart's goal with 6:47 left in regulation propelled the host Winnipeg Jets to their second straight victory, a 4-2 triumph over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.

Stuart fired a shot that sat in the crease but appeared to have been kept out of the net by Devils defenseman Andy Greene. Winnipeg forward Evander Kane drove the net, and the puck crossed the line.

A video review confirmed the call on the ice, and the Jets added an empty-netter by Kane - his second of the game and team-high 15th of the season - in the final minute to ice things.

Kane continued his hot play with the opening goal 1:42 into the game, tipping a Dustin Byfuglien shot past Devils netminder Johan Hedberg. It was his eighth in the past nine games.

Adam Henrique evened the game at 5:53, firing a wrist shot from the right circle that eluded Winnipeg netminder Ondrej Pavelec.

Patrik Elias gave New Jersey a 2-1 lead late in the second period with the Devils enjoying a 5-on-3 advantage, but Winnipeg roared back just over a minute later while still shorthanded. Bryan Little intercepted a pass deep in New Jersey territory and fed the puck to Alex Burmistrov, who one-timed the puck past a scrambling Hedberg.
