Philadelphia Flyers 2 Winnipeg Jets 1 – The loss snapped the Jets road winning streak at two after wins against New Jersey and the Islanders to start the six-game trip. The Jets record now sits at 12-12-4, while their road record drops to 5-6-1. Ten of the 12 road games have been one-goal games and overall, the Jets have now had 17 games decided by one goal. It was an 11:30am et start in Philadelphia and the home team had far more jump in the early going than the visitors. Scott Hartnell opened the scoring 48 seconds into the game as the Jets had trouble getting out of their own end. It was the first time in four games the Jets did not open the scoring. Final shots in the first were 13-2 in favour of the Flyers, and if not for a number of great saves by Ondrej Pavelec, this one would have been over early. His best stop came off Sean Couturier on a shorthanded breakaway. The Jets also ran into penalty trouble at the end of the period and the Flyers started the second with a 5-on-3 advantage for almost a minute and a half. It was great penalty killing by the Jets, in particular Bryan Little, James Wright, Mark Stuart and Jacob Trouba. After the kill, the Jets gained some momentum and forced the Flyers into a penalty. But another shorthanded breakaway and this time a goal for Couturier made it a 2-0 game. It was the fifth shorthanded marker the Jets have given up, most in the NHL. The Jets did outshoot the Flyers in the second 12-10 and had a number of good chances but could not beat Steve Mason, who was terrific. The Jets were the better team in the third but it was not until 12:53 when Michael Frolik scored to make it a 2-1 game. Mark Scheifele and Stuart drew assists, as Scheifele now has points in four straight games. The Jets did have two power plays in the third but struggled against the aggressive penalty killing of the Flyers, going 0-6 on the day. Jets did go 4-4 on the PK. Final shots were 34-26. Evander Kane left the game early in the second, the result of a hit from Brayden Coburn late in the first. Kane tried it in the second but left and is listed as day-to-day with a lower body injury. Pavelec has now given up only seven goals in his last four road games and has dropped his goals-against-average below his career season-low of 2.73. Stuart and Dustin Byfuglien each had five hits, Little led the way in shots on goal with five with most of those shots being very good scoring chances, while Wright was the best face-off man winning six of nine. Byfuglien ended the night with 27:24 and had a few power play shifts as a forward. It was Blake Wheelers 400th NHL game, but despite a couple of chances has seen his goalless stretch hit 14 games. For the second straight game, Olli Jokinen made two trips to the penalty box and has now surpassed the 1,000 mark for penalty minutes in his career. Head coach Claude Noel felt there were too many players that started slowly but "saying it was because of the 11:30 start would be an excuse." He was disappointed with the power play. "We cant get anything out of it and havent been able to through the year. Finding solutions to that issue and that problem is certainly challenging for us." The Jets will practice in New York the next two days in preparation for Mondays game with the Rangers (TSN Jets and TSN 1290). Saturday is an outdoor practice in Central Park.

Our team is in front in the standings, and thats what I want.Tampa Bay finished a run of 21 games that included a 6-0-1 record against Edmonton, Buffalo and Carolina, the NHLs worst three teams. The Lightning went 5-8-1 against other opponents during that stretch.It wasnt our best two periods, but the guys certainly came alive in the third period, said Lightning goalie Ben Bishop, who made 30 saves. Its hard to win games when you play 20 minutes, but we were able to do it.Edmonton, which has lost 14 consecutive road games, got two goals from Benoit Pouliot. He has scored the last five Oilers goals.Its not like were getting blown out every game like last year, Edmonton goalie Ben Scrivens said. Weve been playing better, but weve got to figure out its easier to play defence in the third than try to score one late.Scrivens stopped 16 shots.After Palat scored from in-close at 1:33 of the third, he made it 3-2 from the slot with 8:01 to play. It was the first time Tampa Bay has won when trailing after two periods (1-13-1)Edmonton took a 2-1 lead on Pouliots second of the game, coming on a goal-mouth scramble durring a power play with 57.dddddddddddd3 seconds left in the second period. The left wing has a four-game goal streak.Pouliot put the Oilers ahead 1-0 with a short-handed rebound goal at 13:52 of the first.The guys Im playing with now are really clicking, Pouliot said. Like tonight, we got chances and we got goals on it. Its just a matter of trying to win those games, and theyre not easy to win.Stamkos tied it 7:10 into the second on his 26th goal from the right circle. Matt Carle set it up right after serving a penalty.During a one-minute stretch late in the second, Edmontons Nail Yakupov hit the post, and Stamkos missed the net with an in-close shot and had another scoring chance blocked by defenceman Anton Lander.We had our chances in the third period, but I thought that if we buried a couple in the second where there were some Grade A (chances), the result might have been different, Oilers coach Todd Nelson said.NOTES: Tampa Bay C Tyler Johnson returned after missing one game due to a lower-body injury and had two assists. ... Lightning D Victor Hedman missed his second game with a lower-body injury and might be out until after the All-Star break. ... Oilers C Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had two assists. ... Tampa Bay rookie Jonathan Drouin and F Brenden Morrow, pointless in 17 games, were scratched. ... Oilers C Boyd Gordon played in his 600th NHL game. ... NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski was at the game. A fan of the Red Wings, Keselowski spent time with current Chicago adviser Scotty Bowman, who coached Detroit to three Stanley Cup championships.
