Jets look to repeat the style of game that helped them win 4-2 over Red Wings

WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane won't be making the trip to Chicago.

Kane is missing his second straight game with an unspecified injury.

He has nine points (six goals, three assists) in 15 games this season.

Winnipeg head coach Claude Noel is hoping the Jets can put together the same kind of game they managed without Kane when they beat Detroit on Monday.

More than the 4-2 win, Noel was happy to see the Jets execute many of the things he's been preaching for some time.

Winnipeg's improved puck control created scoring chances against one of the Eastern Conference's stronger teams.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
