Andrew Ladd scored twice and the Winnipeg Jets boosted their playoff hopes in 5-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday.

The Jets also got goals from a pair of recent acquisitions, Drew Stafford and Tyler Myers, and held the defending Stanley Cup champions to 20 shots on goal in one of their more complete efforts of the season. Blake Wheeler added an empty-net goal.

Jeff Carter scored twice for Los Angeles, and the Kings dropped their third consecutive game after an eight-game winning streak.
