Jets take opener against Wild

WINNIPEG—Joe Morrow felt a bit like he was wearing glass slippers instead of skates last night.

The Jets' defenceman scored at 12:47 of the third period to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild in Game 1 of their first-round NHL Western Conference playoff series.

“I've had a major roller-coaster of an NHL career so far,” the 25-year-old Morrow said.

Jets win the game but lose Scheifele

WINNIPEG—Concern and uncertainty clouded the Winnipeg Jets' celebration after a tough 4-3 victory over the surging Edmonton Oilers last night.

Mark Scheifele, Winnipeg's top-line centre and second-leading scorer behind linemate Blake Wheeler, left the game 7:37 into the second period after a hit by Oilers' defenceman Brandon Davidson sent him sliding hard into the boards.
