Recap


Jets 3, Flyers 2 (SO): Bryan Little scored the deciding goal in the fifth round of the shootout and defenseman Dustin Byfuglien had a pair of power-play tallies to lead host Winnipeg to its fourth consecutive win.

Olli Jokinen notched a pair of assists while Ondrej Pavelec made 32 saves before allowing just one goal in the shootout as the Jets halted Philadelphia's three-game winning streak.

Scott Hartnell and Wayne Simmonds scored first-period goals and Steve Mason stopped 36 shots for the Flyers, who lost for the eighth time in their last 11 meetings with Winnipeg.

The Jets ended a six-game power-play drought when Devin Setoguchi sent a crossing pass from the left point to a cutting Byfuglien, who beat Mason to the stick side at 5:36 of the first period. The Flyers needed only 49 seconds to answer as Hartnell's wraparound attempt caromed off Pavelec and into the net, and Simmonds scored off a scramble in front during a man advantage less than 5 1/2 minutes later.

Following a scoreless second period, the Jets started to take control in the third, and the pressure paid off when Byfuglien ripped a blast from the left point past Mason for the tying goal with 5:37 remaining. It was Winnipeg's first game with multiple power-play tallies this season.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Jets entered with the league's worst power play (6-for-71) and had converted only one of their previous 47 chances. ... Hartnell recorded his first two-point performance since notching a hat trick in Montreal on April 15. ... Jets captain Andrew Ladd was stopped in the shootout, his first miss in six attempts this season.
