GDT: Winnipeg Jets vs Vancouver Canucks

New, comments

Off to meet up with a pacific division team in a Monday night match up.

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

The Winnipeg Jets are coming off a gutsy 3-2 victory against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.  Goals by Mark Scheifele and Drew Stafford and the eventual game winner by Adam Lowry was enough to dispatch the Avs. Scott Kosmachuk scored his first NHL point as an assist on Lowry's goal.  Meanwhile, the Vancouver Canucks beat the Nashville Predators 4-2 in a late Saturday tilt.
