Jets Hold On To Beat The Leafs

Josh Morrissey and Dustin Byfuglien scored 1:10 apart in the second period as the Winnipeg Jets defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on Saturday night.

Andrew Copp had the other goal for Winnipeg, while Connor Hellebuyck made 28 stops in a battle of the only two Canadian NHL teams heading to the playoffs.

Patrick Marleau replied for Toronto, which got 26 saves from Curtis McElhinney.

The Leafs, who picked up a 7-2 victory in Winnipeg to open the season on Oct. 4, are all but assured of finishing third in the Atlantic Division. The Jets, meanwhile, look just as certain to wind up second in the Central.
