The Los Angeles Kings blew a three-goal lead and their chance to clinch the Pacific Division title Saturday night, losing 4-3 to the Winnipeg Jets on Mark Scheifele's shootout goal.
Blake Wheeler scored the tying goal on a pass from Scheifele, and the Jets closed another non-playoff season with a stirring rally for their fourth straight victory.
Winnipeg also put the Pacific race in the hands of the Anaheim Ducks, who can win their fourth straight division title with a victory in Washington on Sunday. Los Angeles has 102 points and the tiebreaker edge over the Ducks, who have 101 points after beating Colorado earlier Saturday.
Jonathan Quick made 27 saves for the Kings, who could have clinched just the second division title in the franchise's 48-season history.
