Maurice's impassioned response included some trademark sarcasm and humor, as well, after a reporter asked him to comment on what San Jose's Tomas Hertl, Justin Braun and Tim Heed said about Winnipeg in an online video feature before the Jets dropped the Sharks 4-1 at Bell MTS Place on Sunday.
"I feel like we've been able to find the lanes and get a lot of pucks on goal", said Perreault, whose first goal came with the man advantage to give the Jets a 3-1 lead.
"It's great coming to the rink knowing we have a strong game here at home", Perreault said. We got a sold-out building, pretty sure that goes into hockey-related revenues and everybody cashes their check. "We're just really happy". Scott Wilson would score his first as a Sabre midway through the period, but the Jets survived a late flurry from the Sabres to hang on for the 4-3 win. He beat San Jose goaltender Martin Jones glove side on the backhand for his fourth goal of the season and third point in four games.
Dano doubled the lead just past the midway point when he tipped Jacob Trouba's point shot for his second goal of the season.More news: Faf du Plessis: Was surprised with Ajinkya Rahane's exclusion, Jasprit Bumrah's inclusion
Blackhawks prevail • Anton Forsberg made 32 saves, Nick Schmaltz and Alex DeBrincat scored in the first period and Chicago beat Edmonton 4-1.
Over is 4-0 in Jets last 4 vs. a team with a losing record and under is 3-0-1 in Jets last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and under is 4-0-1 in Jets last 5 games following a win. Neither player has skated since being placed on injured reserve - Crawford on December 27 and Anisimov two days later.
"If they want to take me up on my offer, we could even invite them to a Jets playoff game".
"Once the National Hockey League playoffs get into full swing and the Sharks have some more time on their hands I'd be happy to tour them around and show them all that Winnipeg has to offer - festivals, food trucks, sunshine, world-class attractions and one of the best culinary scenes in the country". I don't even know what a frappuccino is, but my point being, we got nothing to complain about. I really liked our game.More news: Celgene Corporation (CELG), Huntington Bancshares Incorporated (HBAN)
"Overall, we're OK", said DeBoer. A pretty good life, every day. The third was tough to come back down two against that team in the third period. "We're not ideal. We're not exactly where we want to be, but it could be worse".
With an assist on Perreault's power-play goal, Winnipeg captain Blake Wheeler extended his point streak to six games. He has eight points in five games since moving to center after Mark Scheifele was injured.
The Jets will kick off a four-game road trip Tuesday at Buffalo.More news: Panasonic GH5S hits new lows at CES 2018 -- and that's good
