WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice anticipated tonight's match-up with the Philadelphia Flyers (8-8-3) would be a test.
It was a test of his team's persistence, it's ability to stick to the game plan, and it's ability to handle adversity.
That adversity came in the form of an early 2-0 Flyers lead, but the Jets (11-4-3) used the final 40 minutes of regulation, overtime, and the shootout to rally back in dramatic fashion, and send the home fans out of Bell MTS Place happy.

Mathieu Perreault and Mark Scheifele scored in regulation, and Bryan Little added the shootout winner in a 3-2 win, the team's third victory in a row.
"It was a great comeback win," said Maurice. "After the first period, it was just a hard fought, grinding kind of game. Nobody moved the puck well. There were things we'd like to do better. Fighting back in this league from down two, tying a game… I don't think we were lucky."
