NEW YORK, N.Y. - Evander Kane and Blake Wheeler scored in the shootout to lift the Winnipeg Jets to 1-0 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

Winnipeg's Ondrej Pavelec was excellent throughout, making 36 saves in regulation and two in overtime including a breakaway stop on Martin St. Louis. He allowed a goal to Mats Zuccarello to start the shootout but denied the next three attempts.

The shutout was his first this season as the Jets improved to 5-5-1.

The Rangers (5-4-1) were forced to play with only four defencemen for the final two periods and overtime after captain Ryan McDonagh and Kevin Klein were injured in the first.

McDonagh sustained a separated shoulder on a hard check into the boards by Kane. Klein left with a bruised foot after blocking a shot.
