Evander Kane, Ondrej Pavelec lead last-place Jets past league-leading Ducks, 3-2

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Ondrej Pavelec made 40 saves, Evander Kane had a short-handed goal and an assist in his return from a four-game injury absence, and the Winnipeg Jets ended the Anaheim Ducks' 10-game home winning streak with a 3-2 victory Tuesday night.

Blake Wheeler and Andrew Ladd also scored for the last-place Jets, who also handed Anaheim its first regulation loss at home this season after a 20-0-2 start at Honda Center.

Bryan Little had two assists as Winnipeg hung on for its fourth consecutive win since coach Paul Maurice replaced Claude Noel.

Cam Fowler and Nick Bonino scored for the NHL-leading Ducks, who hadn't lost at home since Dec. 3. Anaheim has won 19 of 22 overall, but has lost two of its last three games.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
