Ladd scores in regulation and shootout to lead Jets to 2-1 win over Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Andrew Ladd scored in regulation and in the second round of the shootout, and Ondrej Pavelec stopped Antoine Vermette's attempt to send the Winnipeg Jets to a 2-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night.

The Coyotes dropped into a tie for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with the Dallas Stars, who blanked the Capitals 5-0. Dallas has a game in hand with seven left to play.

Ladd opened the scoring, firing the puck past Coyotes goalie Thomas Greiss from inside the left faceoff circle 10:01 into the first period.

Zbynek Michalek tied it 19 seconds in the middle frame.

Jets wing Blake Wheeler was whistled for a high-sticking penalty with 3:45 into overtime, but the Coyotes couldn't take advantage.

Pavelec finished with 28 saves and Greiss stopped 21 shots.

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
