Jets Beat Wild 3-1 at Xcel
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Dustin Byfuglien had a goal and assist, Connor Hellebuyck made 14 saves to win his NHL debut and the Winnipeg Jets spoiled left winger Zach Parise's return from a knee injury by beating the Minnesota Wild 3-1 on Friday.
Mathieu Perreault added his second goal in two games and Nikolaj Ehlers' goal late in the third put the game away.
The Jets won on the road for the first time in their last seven tries and for just the third time in their last 11 games.
Ryan Carter scored for Minnesota, finally getting a shot past Hellebuyck that made it 2-1 midway through the third period.
Hellebuyck was college hockey's top goalie in 2013-14 and the goaltender on the U.S. team that won a bronze medal in the 2015 world championships.
