Jets continue wild-card hunt at Oilers

92 0

Cody Eakin picked a good time to score his first goal for the Winnipeg Jets.

Eakin, acquired at the trade deadline from Vegas, broke a tie at 11:33 of the third period Monday night as the Jets rallied from a two-goal deficit to defeat visiting Arizona 4-2.

That pushed the Jets (36-28-6, 78 points) to the top of the Western Conference’s wild-card playoff standings. Winnipeg, which has won three in a row, opens a three-game trip Wednesday night in Edmonton against the Oilers.

“That’s a big game by us, being down two to start,” Eakin said. “They’re a hungry team. We ended up stopping the bleeding there and finishing it off the right way. … It’s been a while, so to chip in in that way, you’re doing good work out there. It felt good.”
