Jets defence plays key role offensively in win over Arizona

Trouba, Morrissey, Myers combine for seven points

by Mitchell Clinton @MitchellClinton / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Good defence leads to good offence. 

That's what the Winnipeg Jets preach. On Saturday night against the Arizona Coyotes, the defencemen were a big part of that offence.

Josh Morrissey and Tyler Myers each had a goal and an assist, while Jacob Trouba added three assists of his own in a 5-3 Jets win. 

Add it all up and those three defencemen combined for seven points.

"We definitely have the capability to get in on the offence there on the back end. It's good to see," said Trouba. "It was a back and forth game. We'd get up and get playing pretty well and they'd get on us. We'd kind of have lulls and it went back and forth for pretty much the whole game."

Postgame Wrap-Up: Grubauer Strong In Avs Win Over Hurricanes

The netminder made 42 saves in the victory

by Callie Parmele @CallieParmele / ColoradoAvalanche.com

RALEIGH, N.C.--Facing a team that consistently fires a high number of shots on net, the Colorado Avalanche relied heavily on its goaltender to get the win against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Philipp Grubauer finished Saturday's matinee with a career-high 42 saves and the Avs defeated the Hurricanes 3-1 at PNC Arena.

"Without the way he played tonight, we wouldn't have won this hockey game," said Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog. "We got two big points on the road, but we know that we need to play better defensively than what we did tonight. He was outstanding, and honestly it was one of the better goalie performances I have seen in a long time."
