Hellebuyck shuts door on Canucks:
Kyle Connor scored twice, one into an empty web, to give him a team-leading 24 goals for Winnipeg (25-18-4), which was 0-5-1 during its losing skid at Bell MTS Place.
Jack Roslovic and Blake Wheeler also had an objective each and Patrik Laine got a set of helps for the Jets, who have actually won their previous 10 video games against Vancouver.
Jets coach Paul Maurice was great with Hellebuyck screening his scoring touch.
"After the method that he's played, he needs to have ownership of the method that it ends," Maurice said. "I desire him to take that shot."
Jacob Markstrom stopped 21 of the 24 shots he faced for the Canucks (25-18-4), who have been shut out three times this season.
The Canucks ended a five-game journey going 2-3.
"I thought we played an actually great hockey video game," Vancouver coach Travis Green stated. "One might state it was our best game of the trip, truly.
"But at this time of the year, as we decrease the stretch you're going to have games like this where you play well and you don't win."
Winnipeg led 2-0 after the first period and 3-0 after 2.
The game left to an uncommon start for the Jets, who appeared to score three objectives in the span of 37 seconds but just one counted.
During a wraparound by Jets centre Mark Scheifele, the puck went off Vancouver forward Brock Boeser and into the net at 1:18. An evaluation revealed the web had actually raised off its mooring and the puck actually moved under the side of it so the objective didn't count.
4 seconds later on, Connor got a cross-ice pass from Sami Niku and sent out a one-timer past Markstrom on the glove side.
Defenceman Anthony Bittetto's point shot went by Markstrom at 1:55, but a Vancouver coach's obstacle for offside achieved success so the goal was no excellent.
"Yeah an unusual start of the video game, however I believed we settled in for sure," Markstrom stated. "You can always say we played good, but we didn't win."
The Canucks had an early power play, however Hellebuyck stopped J.T. Miller's shot.
With his 1 8 th shutout ... Connor Hellebuyck is officially THE FRANCHISE SHUTOUT LEADER! pic.twitter.com/pfQNYWfNSJ— @NHLJets Winnipeg made it 2-0 at 14:24 after Adam Lowry fed a long pass to Roslovic and he went in alone and fired the puck high previous Markstrom. Canucks forward Elias Pettersson hit the objective post late in the duration. The Jets began the second
on the power play after a late first-period Vancouver charge and made it count with Wheeler's objective at 1:12. Opting for objective The Canucks had two power plays close together late in the period, however Hellebuyck turned aside a Boeser blast and
then a Pettersson slap shot. Winnipeg defenceman Carl Dahlstrom left the game late in the 2nd with an upper-body injury and didn't return.
Maurice said it"isn't going to be brief term."After Horvat struck the crossbar behind Hellebuyck early in the 3rd, the netminder made a number of slick conserves. He handled to smother a puck that was sliding around behind him, made a quick glove save money on an Adam Gaudette shot and after that splayed out to cover a puck in the last 4 minutes. "He was exceptional from the start," Connor stated of Hellebuyck. As for the goalie's scoring effort, he was cheering Hellebuyck on to get an objective like Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne did last week." I was hoping for it,"Connor said."Everybody saw Pekka Rinne's, so yeah. It was funny."Winnipeg concludes a three-game homestand Friday versus Tampa Bay.
Vancouver returns house to host Arizona on Thursday.
