CALGARY, Alberta - In their first game after the five-day player break, the Winnipeg Jets faced a great challenge on the road in Calgary to take on a Flames team that had won seven straight.  

The Jets put forth a gritty, playoff-type effort and outlasted the Flames 2-1 in a shootout on Saturday afternoon at Scotiabank Saddledome. Mathieu Perreault had the Jets' lone goal in regulation with his 14th of the year midway through the second period, while Bryan Little scored the shootout winner, as the Jets improved to 27-13-7 on the season.

Tanev set to return as Jets return to practice after bye week

Mason, Matthias, Lowry, Scheifele remain out with injuries as Jets prepare to face Flames

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - The bye week is over, and the Winnipeg Jets didn't waste any time getting back to work.

"You saw everyone was on the ice 20-25 minutes before practice today just trying to touch the puck as much as they can and try to get the hands back," said Bryan Little. "I don't think anyone took five days off. I think guys were working out and in the gym still. It didn't feel too bad. The passes were a bit off and the lungs were burning a bit."

Overall, the Jets skated for close to an hour at Bell MTS Place before hopping on the plane for a quick one-game stop in Calgary against the Flames.

There was news on the injury front from head coach Paul Maurice shortly after the skate. Brandon Tanev will be in the line-up after missing the last seven games with a lower-body injury.

Robinson enjoying breakout year with first-place Moose

Six-foot-six winger signed with Jets in off-season, leads AHL affiliate with career-high 18 goals

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - When he signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Winnipeg Jets back on Jul. 1, Buddy Robinson was starting a new chapter with a renewed sense of confidence.

After all, it was around this time last year when the undrafted, then-25-year-old wasn't sure where the story was headed next.  

It was the halfway point of his fourth year with the Ottawa Senators' American Hockey League affiliate in Binghamton, New York. Robinson was having a fine year focusing on his defensive game, but was just never able to break out offensively and become what he believed he could be at this level.

Jets head into player break with loss to Wild

Perreault scores lone goal; Hellebuyck stops 37 in 4-1 defeat

by Jamie Thomas @JamieThomasTV / WinnipegJets.com

ST. PAUL, Minnesota - With Shawn Matthias joining Adam Lowry, Brandon Tanev and Mark Scheifele on the injured list on Saturday, you could understand why this five-day player break comes at the perfect time for the Winnipeg Jets.

Video: POSTGAME | JetsTV Road Report

The Jets came out slow in the first period and fell behind 2-0 for the third straight road game against a Central Division opponent, and they just ran out of gas in the third period in their comeback attempt, falling 4-1 to the Minnesota Wild. Winnipeg missed out on a chance to sweep the season series from the Wild, but did take three of the four meetings this year.

"Well, we were 22 hours since we took out skates off last night (in Chicago); it's tough." said Blake Wheeler, who had an assist in the defeat. "People come into our building after that and we've given a couple beat downs this year. We knew it was going to be a grind."
