WINNIPEG - Olli Jokinen scored his second goal of the night in the seventh round of the shootout to help the Winnipeg Jets rally for a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Friday night.

The game was halted in the second period when defenceman Jacob Trouba was stretchered off the ice following a crash into the boards.

Tobias Enstrom scored the tying goal in the third and Evander Kane also scored for the Jets. Ondrej Pavelec made 29 saves.

Alexander Steen scored twice and David Backes also scored for the Blues.

Trouba slammed into the boards after missing a hit early in the second period. The Jets' top 2012 draft pick managed a wave as fans shouted his name while he was being wheeled off.

A Jets spokesman said Trouba was taken to hospital for X-rays and was alert, communicating and moving all his limbs.

DUCKS 3, COYOTES 2, SO

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Nick Bonino scored the tying goal with 2:02 left in the third period, Jakob Silfverberg scored the deciding goal in the sixth round of the shootout and Jonas Hiller made 30 saves to lead Anaheim over Phoenix.

The defending Pacific Division champions are off to their best start in franchise history, winning six straight following a 6-1 loss at Colorado on opening night. It's also the first time the club has started 4-0 at home.

Rostislav Klesla got his first goal of the season, Antoine Vermette also scored and Mike Smith made 37 saves for the Coyotes.

Teemu Selanne also scored for Anaheim.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
