Jets edge Flyers in SO

Bryan Little scored on the final attempt 1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

With the final attempt, Little skated in and buried a low wrister between the pads of Ilya Bryzgalov to give the Jets their sixth straight win against the Flyers.

Chris Thorburn scored the lone goal of regulation for the Jets, who had dropped their prior three games. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 27 shots and all three skaters in the shootout.

Brayden Schenn scored the only goal of regulation for the Flyers, who have dropped two of their last three, all shootouts. Bryzgalov made 23 stops in the loss.

This game was a far cry from the previous two contests these two squads had played this season.

The first was a 9-8 win for the Jets in Philly on October 27 while the second was a 6-4 contest, which was also a victory for the Jets in Winnipeg, on November 19.

Skating on the power play in the first period, the Flyers got on the board as Matt Carle sent a hard shot on net from the left side with Schenn jamming it in with 4:49 to play in the first.

The Jets got the only goal of the second period and they did so 2:06 in. Ron Hainsey brought the puck in the left side and left a drop pass at the point for Nik Antropov, who fired the puck over to the right point. From there, Thorburn skated it down to the circle and ripped a wrister into the net.
