Maple Leafs upend Jets 3-2
TORONTO 3, WINNIPEG 2

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- Phil Kessel picked the right time to
end his 10-game goal-scoring drought.



The Maple Leafs winger scored his first goal of the season late
in the third period to lift Toronto over the Winnipeg Jets 3-2
on Thursday night.



"I know it's eventually going to go in there," said Kessel, who
had 37 goals last season. "I've had some chances. Bozie (Tyler
Bozak) made a good drop pass and I went to the net and was
fortunate to get it in."



Bozak also scored short-handed and Matt Frattin added a goal for
the Leafs, who won their second straight of a three-game road
trip.



Zach Redmond and Andrew Ladd scored for the Jets, who have lost
four of their past five games.



The Jets outplayed the Maple Leafs for two periods and were
ahead 2-1 in the third when the momentum shifted.



"I wouldn't say (the game) would be one that we were going to
frame," said Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle, who finished his
playing career with the original Winnipeg Jets in the early
1990s.



It was a homecoming for the popular longtime resident of
Winnipeg as a player and then coach of the AHL's Manitoba Moose.
He received a standing ovation from fans when he was introduced.



"I thought we really didn't play well for the first two periods
and I thought we were much better in the third, specifically the
last 10 minutes of it, and we were fortunate to eke out a win,"
he said.



"We've got to feel fortunate that our power play finally came
through and our top goal scorer finally hit the back of the
net."



For the Jets, it was one more frustrating night after a
promising start.



"There's a lot of good things we did but, at the end of the day,
when we've got a 2-1 lead going into the third, you've got to be
smarter and you've got to close out those games," said center
Bryan Little.



Little was Winnipeg's most productive forward Thursday night
with two assists and coach Claude Noel said he is going to have
to shake up his two top lines.



Winnipeg's defense seems to be providing much of its offense
lately, with defenseman Tobias Enstrom leading the team with 13
points.



"You've got to make changes, you can't just sit back and watch
this," he said.



"You've got to juggle this thing around a little bit. ... They
get on the power play and they score and our opportunities don't
even exist on our power play."



The Jets went 0 for 4 on the power play and had trouble getting
off a shot.



Redmond scored his first NHL goal on a 2-on-1 short-handed
breakaway initiated by Little, who sent him a cross-ice pass the
rookie fired past James Reimer's glove hand at 3:32 of the
second period.



Dion Phaneuf was the only Leafs player between the two Jets and
Toronto's goaltender.



But at 6:21 of the second, a mistake by Jets defenseman Paul
Postma handed Bozak a 1-on-1 short-handed shootout with Jets
goalie Ondrej Pavelec.



Ladd put the Jets ahead at 3:46 of the third, tipping in a shot
slapped from just inside the blue line by Grant Clitsome that
beat Reimer's glove hand again.



Cody Franson fired a shot that Frattin got credit for as the
puck glanced off him past a downed Pavelec to tie the game at
14:58.



Kessel popped in Bozak's drop pass less than a minute later
after the Jets took a holding penalty.



Pavelec stopped 15 shots while Reimer made 23 saves.
