Mathieu Perrault scored two goals while extending his point streak to eight games, and the Winnipeg Jets routed the listless Chicago Blackhawks 5-1 on Tuesday night.

Bryan Little also had his team-best 13th goal as Winnipeg stopped Chicago's eight-game home winning streak. The Jets are responsible for two of the Blackhawks' four regulation home losses, also winning 1-0 at the United Center on Nov. 2 in their first meeting of the season.

Winnipeg (18-10-7), one of the NHL's biggest surprises, won for the third time in four games, bouncing back from a 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Sunday. The Jets led the Flyers 3-1 after two periods, but were unable to close it out.
