Winnipeg Jets win streak

Fresh off their eighth consecutive victory, the Winnipeg Jets are soaring into the Stanley Cup playoffs with momentum on their side.

In a thrilling regular-season finale at Canada Life Centre, newcomer Nikita Chibrikov made an unforgettable NHL debut by netting the game-winning goal 5:18 into the third period, propelling the Jets to a 4-2 triumph over the Vancouver Canucks.

Cole Perfetti showcased his scoring prowess with a pair of goals, including an empty-netter in the final minutes, while Gabriel Vilardi also found the back of the net for Winnipeg. Despite valiant efforts from Conor Garland and Elias Lindholm of the Canucks, Laurent Brossoit stood tall in the Jets’ goal, making 18 crucial saves to secure the victory.

Hellebuyck’s outstanding performance, combined with Brossoit’s stellar play, helped the Jets allow the fewest goals in the league during the regular season, edging out the Florida Panthers by a single goal.
