Recap


Jets 3, Predators 1: Ondrej Pavelec turned aside 39 shots to lift visiting Winnipeg past Nashville.

Olli Jokinen, captain Andrew Ladd and Devin Setoguchi scored as the Jets improved to 5-1-1 in their last seven games. Pavelec withstood an early barrage to help Winnipeg beat the Predators for the second time in five meetings this season.

Rookie Simon Moser scored his first career goal for Nashville, which lost for the fourth time in five games (1-2-2). Carter Hutton, making his eighth consecutive start, stopped 17 shots in falling to 7-3-2 in his last 12.

Despite getting outshot 29-16 through two periods, the Jets went to the locker room with a 2-0 lead. Kane's long lead pass sprung Jokinen on a partial breakaway down the left side and he buried a high wrist shot at 5:02 of the middle session for his 14th goal.

Winnipeg doubled the lead with 1:42 left in the period, when Ladd deflected defenseman Zach Bogosian's blast from the right point. The Predators closed within 2-1 on Moser's deflection of blue-liner Michael Del Zotto's shot with just under 11 minutes remaining in the third, but Setoguchi stuffed home a rebound after Blake Wheeler drove the net with 3:52 to play.
