Jets 5, Wild 4
WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Defense was largely an afterthought as Winnipeg recovered from blowing a 4-0 lead to top Minnesota.
Michael Hutchinson relieved Connor Hellebuyck in the Jets net after 40 minutes and stopped 13 shots — including many of the highlight reel variety — in posting the victory. Devan Dubnyk let in five goals on 21 shots for the Wild.
Andrew Copp, Adam Lowry, Ben Chiarot, Dustin Byfuglien and Jim Morrissey all lit the lamp for Winnipeg, with Morrissey getting the winner midway through the third period. Chris Stewart scored twice and Charlie Coyle and Mikael Granlund once each for the Wild.
