WINNIPEG, Manitoba – Winnipeg defenseman Jacob Trouba scored his second goal of the game 1:10 into overtime to lift the Jets to a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.
Fellow rookie Mark Scheifele also scored for the Jets, who have won three straight since Paul Maurice took over as coach after Claude Noel was fired on Jan. 12.
Jordan Eberle and David Perron had the goals for the Oilers, who went 0-4 on a Central Division road trip and were outscored 17-8.
Edmonton lost this one when Jets forward Blake Wheeler found Trouba alone in front of the net for the winning goal after he nearly scored himself.
The Oilers forced overtime when Perron redirected Jeff Petry's point shot with two minutes remaining in regulation on just the fifth Edmonton shot of the third period.
Trouba had tied it at 5:48 of the third with a short-handed goal.
