The Winnipeg Jets are finding ways to win late during their best stretch of the season.Jacob Trouba and Adam Lowry scored 22 seconds apart early in the third period [url=]Womens Kyle Palmieri Jersey[/url] , rallying the Jets to a 3-1 victory over the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.Nikolaj Ehlers added an empty-net goal with 2.1 seconds left and Connor Hellebuyck stopped 27 shots to help Winnipeg get its season-high fourth straight win and fifth in six games.We were able to grind and stick with our game, Hellebuyck said. Were believing in ourselves and doing everything right.The Jets have three straight road wins for the first time this season after completing a sweep of their three-game trip to the New York area. Winnipeg beat New Jersey 4-3 in overtime on Saturday, then won 4-3 in a shootout against the Rangers on Sunday.Of the three, I was maybe most pleased with tonight, Jets coach Paul Maurice said. A very grinding game. They had the rest advantage on us but we were very smart. They accepted the game that was being played and got comfortable.The Jets scored three goals after the second period in each of the three wins.We believe in our system and when you believe in something good things start to come, Hellebuyck said. Its huge to get all six points on the three games here. A key for your season.Anders Lee scored and Thomas Greiss finished with 21 saves for New York, which has lost three of four (1-2-1). The Islanders were back at Barclays Center three nights after rallying for a 3-2 win over Columbus in their first regular-season game at Nassau Coliseum in 3 1/2 years.Despite the loss, they were pleased with how they played in this one.We had some really good opportunities to score and Hellebuyck kept a lot of them out, Lee said. Credit to him on those, but for the most part we did play a pretty good game.Lee broke the scoreless tie 1:33 into the third period when he knocked down Johnny Boychuks shot from the right point and beat Hellebuyck from the left side for his 10th. It gave Lee four goals and six points in the last six games.Trouba tied it on the power play with a slap shot straightaway from the blue line for his third at 3:39. Lowry put the Jets ahead as he scored on a rebound of Brandon Tanevs shot in front for his fifth at 4:01.Lowrys goal was his first since Oct. 20. He had three assists in 18 games since.Ive had some chances last few games [url=][/url] , he said. There was a stretch I wasnt really happy with how my game was going. I was real happy to see that one go in.After a brisk first period in which neither team mustered a lot of chances, both picked up the pace in the second. Winnipeg, outshot 8-3 in the first, had a 15-12 edge in the middle period.The Islanders best try of the period came about six minutes in when Hellebuyck stopped Lees tip try in front and then denied Jordan Eberles follow attempt. Greiss made two stellar saves on Kyle Connor late in the second to keep the game scoreless. First, he stopped Connors try in front, then he made a shoulder save lunging to his right on Connors follow.New York had the first five shots of the game but then went nine minutes between Nick Leddys slap shot from beyond the left circle at 7:48 and Valtteri Filppulas attempt from the edge of the left circle with 3:08 remaining.Winnipeg didnt get its first shot on goal until Tyler Myers try from the right point 9:11 in, but then had nothing after Blake Wheelers slap shot from the right circle with 8:01 left in the opening period.NOTES: The Jets Mark Scheifele snapped a five-game point streak in which he had five goals and four assists. Patrik Laine ended a five-game point and assist streak in which he had a goal and eight assists. Winnipeg is 7-0-0 this season in games tied after two periods, and 9-3-0 when giving up the first goal. Winnipeg has scored 38 goals over its last nine games. Lee has 10 goals and 14 points in 11 career games against the Jets. New York went 0 for 2 on the power play and is 0 for 18 over its last eight games.UP NEXTJets: Host St. Louis on Friday night in the opener of a four-game homestand.Islanders: At Pittsburgh on Thursday night to begin a two-game trip. VANCOUVER, British Columbia Patrick Kane hopes to whet his palate again Wednesday night.The Chicago winger is riding a six-game point streak as the Blackhawks prepare to visit the Vancouver Canucks in the first contest of a three-game road trip through Western Canada.Its always fun scoring goals, Kane told reporters Tuesday in Chicago. So I think when you get a taste of that [url=]Anthony Mantha Jersey[/url] , you feel like youre getting hot. You want to keep it going.Article continues below ...Kane ranks among the National Hockey Leagues top scorers with 11 goals and seven assists after his latest run yielded six and four. He has earned a point in all but one of Chicagos 12 games.The Canucks are not the same version of the squad that waged several heated playoff and regular-season battles with the Blackhawks in the past. But Kane will not have trouble getting motivated for Wednesdays contest against a young Vancouver club that has surprised people despite enduring several injuries to key players.That was always a fun rivalry, Kane said. I know its not the same as it once was. But its still fun to go into Vancouver and play in that rink.But the Blackhawks have not had much fun on the power play lately. Kane and company have only scored on two of 14 power-play opportunities in the past four games. The Blackhawks split those contests.I think we need to do a better job of recovering (the puck) off the (first) shot, and maybe some plays will open up, Kane said. But its still a work in progress.Chicago coach Joel Quenneville wants his club to get off to a good start on what he calls an all-important three-game trip.Were playing three teams that are all in the (playoff) mix, Quenneville told reporters. All are improved. Theyre all younger and have some speed through the lineup.Swedish rookie Elias Pettersson, 19, is one player who has added to Vancouvers speed this season. He has also provided some scoring punch to make up for the retirements of Daniel and Henrik Sedin.Pettersson scored two goals, including the winner, Monday as the Canucks posted a 5-2 home win over the Minnesota Wild, who had won five straight beforehand. Despite missing six games to a concussion [url=]Darren Helm Jersey[/url] , he has seven goals in as many games including a pair of two-goal performances.He gets the building going like no other player like Hank and Danny (Sedin) used to do, so its nice, Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom told reporters.He has really good hockey sense, and its not just offensively, Canucks coach Travis Green said. Hes got a good mind for the game and his details are sharp.Petterssons on-ice sharpness was evident Monday as he scored on a one-timer and then capitalized on a breakaway after blocking a shot and taking a lead pass from Brock Boeser. The rookie said he wants to do his best at everything to help the team win.If I have to block a shot, Ill do my best at that, too, he said.The Canucks will likely need another strong effort from him against Chicago. Vancouver lost center Brandon Sutter to an apparent shoulder injury against Minnesota. Coach Travis Green said Sutter is expected to be out weeks.The Canucks are also again expected to be without injured defensemen Alex Edler (knee) and Chris Tanev (hip) as well as winger Sven Baertschi (concussion). Vancouver called up two forwards Brendan Gaunce and Darren Archibald from Utica of the American Hockey League on Monday. That suggests another forward could also be unable to suit up.I dont know whats going on around this team, Markstrom said. We keep getting injuries.
