Jets lose Perreault for four weeks

Kyle Connor recalled from Manitoba Moose

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Heading into practice on Monday, the big question revolved around the injury status of Mathieu Perreault and Dmitry Kulikov after both left Saturday's win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Head coach Paul Maurice had the update following the team's 60-minute skate, saying Kulikov had a "strong morning" and may be out "considerably less" time than the two weeks the team initially feared.

The news wasn't so good for Perreault.

"Mathieu is going to be four weeks we think. It's a big number," said Maurice. "We need what he brings, because he finds a way to get on the puck, knock things down, and keep it there. He's an important piece to that second power play unit.

"But we've got some young guys that are playing in the minors that maybe two years ago would have started here. They come with a little more bite and a little more determination. So we think we have the pieces here to survive an injury like this."

Ehlers scores the winner as Jets edge Hurricanes

Jets win third straight to open home stand

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - They knew it wasn't going to be easy, and got exactly what they expected.

However, the Winnipeg Jets also got the result they wanted.

The final score at Bell MTS Place read 2-1 in favour of the Jets over the Carolina Hurricanes, and Blake Wheeler said the team came in mentally prepared for a tight-checking 60 minutes.

"Carolina is one of the tougher teams to play - just great sticks, no room all over the ice. Paul did a great job preparing us for that, and showing us what they do well," said Wheeler. "Through two periods we had 10 shots, and everybody was comfortable.

"There was no panic, there was nobody trying to do their own thing, and try to create offence out of nowhere."

WINNIPEG - Dustin Byfuglien returns to the line-up as the Winnipeg Jets look for their third win in a row tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Byfuglien has missed the last two games with a lower-body injury, something he said started bothering him in training camp.

"We tried taking care of it as much as possible, and we did the right thing and got on it early," said Byfuglien. "It's definitely nothing big, but it's something that can drag on for a long time. If you take care of it early, you won't lose much time."

The 6'5" defenceman was paired with Toby Enstrom at today's morning skate, a pairing head coach Paul Maurice has liked in the past.

"He and Toby have played some real fine hockey together for us so we're hoping that pairing can match it again," said Maurice. "He's such a force. We miss him on the back end on that power play. That shot threat and the movement that group has, we felt we've missed him there."

Jets double up Canucks to wrap up road trip

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - The Winnipeg Jets got a taste of the winning feeling in Edmonton on Monday night, and talked this morning about wanting to carry that feeling into Vancouver.

They did just that.

Josh Morrissey, Patrik Laine, Tyler Myers, and Nikolaj Ehlers found the twine for the Jets in a 4-2 win over the Canucks at Rogers Arena Thursday night, giving them back-to-back wins to close out a three-game road trip.

"I thought the last two games, we played exactly the way we wanted to," said Myers, who's shorthanded goal proved to be the game winner. "These last two games we've adjusted nicely and kept things simple. Teams are going to make a push on us at some point, it happens in every game. These last two games are a good start to creating a new habit of how we need to play to win. We just have to keep it going."

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Two days after recording his first point and first goal as a member of the Winnipeg Jets, defenceman Dmitry Kulikov wants to keep building on that performance tonight as the team wraps up a three-game road trip against the Vancouver Canucks.

"Usually when things go well, and you don't get points, it kind of gets in your head. For me it felt good to get it out of the way early," Kulikov said, adding the win on Monday helped raise the spirits in the room. "It definitely made us feel better to get a big win, and moving on to these couple days, we got to enjoy ourselves and get to know each other a little better. It was a good team-building time."

Head coach Paul Maurice won't make any changes to the line-up that earned those two points in Edmonton.
