Raymond has 3 points to lead Flames past Jets 4-1

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Mason Raymond had a goal and two assists, and the Calgary Flames beat Winnipeg 4-1 on Sunday to hand the Jets their fourth straight loss.

Dennis Wideman, Johnny Gaudreau and Raymond scored against Ondrej Pavelec during the second period in a span of 6 minutes, 42 seconds. Calgary (4-3-0) finished a six-game road trip with its fourth win away from home.

T.J. Brodie scored Calgary’s other goal to add to his career-high, six-game point streak. Wideman and Gaudreau, who was benched in the previous game, each had an assist.

Jonas Hiller stopped 34 shots for the Flames.

Mark Scheifele scored in the first period for Winnipeg (1-4-0). After opening the season with a 6-2 win over Arizona, the Jets have managed two goals during their four-game losing skid.

It was the second game of a five-game homestand for Winnipeg, which hosts Carolina on Tuesday.

The Flames return home for five games, beginning Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

Scheifele scored his first of the season after Mathieu Perreault passed the puck from behind the net to Blake Wheeler at the right side. Wheeler then sent it across to Scheifele for a high shot into the side of the net at 10:28 of the first.

Winnipeg had a goal reviewed and disallowed earlier in the first when defenseman Anthony Peluso rifled a shot that hit the crossbar and then the post.

Calgary had a good chance to score early in the opening period when the Jets were on a power play, but Pavelec stopped Joe Colborne’s breakaway shot.

The Jets, who haven’t scored on a power play this season, got a second chance with the extra man, but the only moment that drew noise from the crowd was when defenseman Tobias Enstrom broke his stick on an attempted one-timer.

Winnipeg outshot the Flames 13-6 in the opening period, but it was Calgary that came out strong after the break.

The Flames tied the game at 6:12 of the second after the Jets turned the puck over in their own end and Wideman took a shot from the high slot that got by Pavelec, who appeared to be screened.

Winnipeg was called for too many men on the ice, leading to Gaudreau’s first goal of the season on the power play with a wraparound at 10:12.

It was the first power-play goal Winnipeg has given up this season in 19 penalty-kill situations.

Raymond followed up with his fifth of the season on a high wrist shot at 12:54 to make it 3-1.

The Flames had 18 shots in the middle period and were outshooting the Jets 24-23 heading into the third.

Brodie made it 4-1 at 3:18 when he put a rebound high past Pavelec.

Jets captain Andrew Ladd had a breakaway during a Flames power play, but couldn’t get off a shot.

Calgary was 1 for 3 on the power play and Winnipeg 0 for 2.
