SCHEIFELE SCORES WIN­NER AS JETS RALLY PAST DUCKS

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

win­nipeg, man­i­toba » Dustin Byfuglien tied the score with 12 sec­onds left in reg­u­la­tion and as­sisted on Mark Scheifele’s 30th goal at 3: 34 of over­time, ral­ly­ing the Jets to a 4- 3 vic­tory over the play­off- bound Ducks on Thurs­day night.

Win­nipeg scored twice in the fi­nal 8: 25 of the third pe­riod to pull even. Fol­low­ing a coach’s chal­lenge by Randy Car­lyle of the Ducks, it was de­ter­mined that Byfuglien’s jam job in the crease was in­deed a good goal.

Joel Ar­mia and cap­tain Blake Wheeler also scored in reg­u­la­tion for Win­nipeg.

Corey Perry scored twice, but the Ducks had their five- game win­ning streak snapped. Jakob Sil­fver­berg also scored for the Pa­cific Di­vi­sion lead­ers.
