Jets win 3-2 in OT, hand Oilers 11th straight loss

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Mathieu Perreault scored 17 seconds into overtime, and the Winnipeg Jets sent the Edmonton Oilers to their 11th straight loss with a 3-2 victory on Wednesday night.

Perrault tipped Jacob Trouba’s point shot past goalie Ben Scrivens to win it. Trouba and Dustin Byfuglien also scored for the Jets.

David Perron and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had goals for the Oilers (6-15-5), who haven’t beaten a Western Conference opponent this season.

Edmonton’s longest winless streak is 14 games from Oct. 11-Nov. 7, 1993.

Ondrej Pavelec made 24 saves in the win. Scrivens stopped 21 shots.

Perron had given Edmonton a 2-1 lead at 1:31 of the third period when he capitalized on a Winnipeg turnover. He got around a Jets player and fired a shot that caromed in off the crossbar.

Byfuglien tied it 2-2 with 3:06 left in regulation when he redirected in Mark Stuart’s point shot. He also assisted on Trouba’s goal.

The Oilers had the game’s first shot, but it didn’t come until 7:30 elapsed in the first period.

The Jets scored on their third shot when Perreault skated into the right circle and sent a pass back to Trouba in the slot for his third goal of the season at 12:33.

Winnipeg has scored first in seven straight games and in 17 of 26 this season. The Jets are 10-4-3 in those 17 first-goal games.

Pavelec was screened on a point shot from Nugent-Hopkins at 17:59 of the first period. The goal was Nugent-Hopkins’ sixth of the season and it extended his point streak to three games. Taylor Hall assisted on the goal, giving him three assists in a three-game point streak.

Winnipeg outshot Edmonton 8-7 in the first period.

Scrivens faced a barrage of shots midway through the scoreless second period, and had to whip out his glove for a stop against a drive by Byfuglien.

NOTES: Byfuglien’s assist on Trouba’s goal was his 100th franchise point. Oilers RW Jordan Eberle played in his 300th NHL game. … Jets sophomore C Mark Scheifele played in his 100th NHL game. … Winnipeg placed top defenseman Tobias Enstrom (lower-body) on the injured list this week.
