Tobias Enstrom's late PP goal helps Jets beat Sharks 4-3

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Tobias Enstrom scored a power-play goal with 3:36 remaining in the third period to help the Winnipeg Jets deal a blow to San Jose's chances to finish in first place by beating the Sharks 4-3 on Thursday night.

Blake Wheeler added a goal and two assists for the Jets, who trail Phoenix by nine points in the race for the second wild card spot in the Western Conference. Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien also scored, and Al Montoya made 27 saves.

Dan Boyle, Brent Burns and Logan Couture scored for the Sharks, who have lost four of the past six games. San Jose still holds a two-point lead over Anaheim in the Pacific Division but the Ducks have three games in hand. Antti Niemi made 27 saves for San Jose.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
