Winnipeg Jets 2, Montreal Canadiens 1 (Jets 27-25-5, road 13-14-1) - With the win, the Jets are now two games above the five hundred mark for the first time since starting the season 2-0. Bruce Ruffin Jersey . The win also moved the Jets to within four points of the final playoff spot. Four points separate spots 8-12 in the West. It was the Jets 32nd one-goal game of the season and the seventh in the last eight games. The Jets are now 8-2 in the last 10. The Jets last five wins have come against teams sitting in a playoff spot. After going winless in their first six afternoon games, the Jets have now won their last two. The first period was scoreless with both Carey Price and Al Montoya making a number of very good saves as the Canadiens outshot the Jets 12-10. The opening goal of the game came at 9:13 of the second as Toby Enstrom beat Price with a wrap around. It was Enstroms sixth of the season with assists to Chris Thorburn and Blake Wheeler. It was the second straight game that a Jets defenceman opened the scoring, after Zach Bogosian opened the scoring against Vancouver Friday. Montreal tied the game with the teams playing four on four, Brian Gionta notching his 10th of the year. Shots in the second were 13-9 in favour of the Jets. The Jets got the winner early in the third as Price mishandled the puck against the checking of Andrew Ladd, allowing Ladd to find Micheal Frolik open in front of the Montreal goal who scored his 12th of the year. Ladd has nine points in the last nine games. Jets outshot Montreal 12-10 in the third and 35-31 over the game. It was a wild third period with a number of net front battles at both ends. The game ended with a pile up in front of Montoya following a last second save. For the fourth straight game, Bogosian led the Jets in ice time at 27:30. He also led in shots on goal with six. Mark Stuart had five shots on goal as the Jets defence core accounted for 15 of the 35 shots. Dustin Byfuglien leads the Jets in hits and added to that total with 10. It was another very good game for Byfuglien. Mark Scheifele was a plus one in the game as is a plus 11 in the last 10 games. Coach Paul Maurice liked most of what he saw from his team, but there were areas of concern. "We did some funny things with the puck at strange time, but that will come. This was a confidence builder. Its not an easy building to play in. We were better in the third than in the first and second." Jets were guilty at times of not moving the puck quick enough, allowing Montreal to create turnovers with their forecheck. "Weve made pretty good strides in some areas", continued coach Maurice. "We are working on defining what Winnipeg Jets hockey is. Two goals, one is making the playoffs, but first is building a foundation for a game we understand. We are big, fast and young. Were using that." On the play of Montoya, "he made some great saves. Good for the team to know whoever is in, they have confidence in him. After the Chicago game we knew we had to get him back in. Not playing for seven or eight days is like starting from scratch all the time. This win makes the Chicago win even better." When asked about the play of Mark Stuart, who received the fighter pilot helmet from his teammates, "every game I get a far greater appreciation for the role he plays." Stuart was as battle ready as could be for this game with a number of one-on-one confrontations, but especially with Brendan Gallagher and Gionta. The Jets continue the four game road trip Tuesday in coach Maurices old stomping grounds, Carolina (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). Twice he was head coach of the Hurricanes. Then it is into Washington and St. Louis to close out the pre-Olympic schedule (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). The Jets will then finish with 22 games in 44 days, with 15 of the 22 games against Western Conference opponents. Kyle Freeland Jersey . Ryan Callahan trade talks caught a lot of people off guard. Details are now emerging about why the Rangers would consider such a move. Darren Dreger: He wants a lot of money. Its been widely reported that Callahan is looking for a seven-year term around $6 million per year. That is not accurate. Im told that it is more than $6. Yency Almonte Jersey . Viewers in the Canadiens region can watch the game on TSN Canadiens at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The game can also be heard on TSN Radio Montreal 690. The Calgary Flames will see if they can take their recent hot streak on the road when they shoot for a sixth consecutive win Monday night in Montreal. https://www.cheaprockiesjerseys.us/ .

The team will interview former Maccabi Tel Aviv coach David Blatt, a person familiar with the teams plans told The Associated Press on Thursday. Earlier in the day, Blatt announced in Israel that hes leaving the European champion to pursue an unspecified job in the NBA. Hell meet with the Cavs next week, said the person who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team is not discussing any aspect of its search -- now a month old. The 55-year-old Blatt has known Cavs general manager David Griffin for years. At his news conference, Blatt, who led Maccabi to its first European title this year, said hes weighing offers from unnamed teams and has "a few good options." Hes expected to make a decision soon. "I am leaving here not because I was asked to. The opposite is true, I was asked to stay, and offered the best possible conditions for such an event," Blatt said. "But I just felt it is a move I wanted to make. It has been a dream of mine for almost forever to go and join a team in the NBA in some capacity. "I wish I could have done it as a player. I wasnt good enough. But now perhaps Ill have that opportunity as a coach." Blatt has ddrawn interest to be an assistant with New York, Golden State and Minnesota. Ellis Burks Jersey. The Cavs, though, are interested in talking to him about being their head coach. They reached out to him last week, but had not set up a face-to-face meeting. The Cleveland Plain Dealer was first to report Blatts interview. Blatt is just the latest candidate to interview with the Cavs, who will have a second meeting with Clippers assistant coach Alvin Gentry on Friday. The person familiar with the teams plans also said the Cavs will meet for the second time with another Clippers assistant, former NBA guard Tyronn Lue. Gentry and Lue are expected to speak with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, who did not participate in the teams first round of interviews. The team has contacted as many as 12 candidates to fill the vacancy created when owner Dan Gilbert fired Mike Brown -- for the second time -- on May 12. The Cavs would like to have a coach in place by the NBA draft on June 26, but obviously, the team isnt rushing into any decisions. Earlier this week, the Cavs interviewed former Cleveland All-Star guard Mark Price, now an assistant with Charlotte. Price has limited head coaching experience, but Griffin has said the team will not be restricted in its search. ' ' '
