Jets 3, Ducks 2: Evander Kane recorded a goal and an assist in his return from a hand injury as Winnipeg remained perfect under Paul Maurice and handed Anaheim its first regulation loss at home this season.

Blake Wheeler and captain Andrew Ladd also scored for the Jets, who improved to 4-0-0 since Maurice replaced Claude Noel behind the bench. Bryan Little notched a pair of assists and Ondrej Pavelec made 40 saves.

Defenseman Cam Fowler and Nick Bonino tallied for the Ducks, who had won 10 straight at home and fell to 20-1-2 overall at the Honda Center. Jonas Hiller allowed three goals on 11 shots before being replaced by Frederik Andersen, who stopped all 10 shots he faced.

Anaheim got on the board 3:59 into the contest as Fowler beat Pavelec with a blast from above the left faceoff circle during a power play. Wheeler forged a tie 1:20 later, firing a wrist shot from the right circle past the glove of Hiller, and Ladd scored from the doorstep with 1:24 left in the opening period to give Winnipeg a 2-1 edge.

Kane doubled the lead with 4:17 left in the second, racing down the left wing and ripping a shot past Hiller from the top of the left circle while short-handed. Bonino buried a rebound in the slot midway through the third, but the Ducks were unable to get the equalizer.
