Winnipeg Jets 4 Vancouver Canucks 3 (Jets 26-25-5, home 14-11-4) Winnipeg Jets made it seven wins in their last nine games with the win and for now move to within six points of the Canucks, who hold down the final playoff spot. Original Ray Ban Wayfarer . The Jets jumped into a quick 2-0 lead in the first on goals by Zach Bogosian (3rd) and Devin Setoguchi (9th) 1:05 apart. Toby Enstrom and Andrew Ladd drew assists on the Bogosian goal, a point shot that seemed to dip and get by former Moose goaltender Eddie Lack. It was only the third time in the last nine games the Jets scored first. A great pass by Dustin Byfuglien led to the Setoguchi goal, with Mark Scheifele also assisting. Scheifele now has 12 points in his last 12 games. The Canucks got a power play goal from Alex Edler to make it a 2-1 score after the first, the Jets outshooting Vancouver 15-7. The Canucks tied the game at 4:48 of the second with an unassisted goal, but less than two minutes later the Jets had the lead back on Michael Froliks 11th of the year. Ladd with his second assist of the game and Bryan Little were also in on the goal. Shots on goal in the second were 13-10 Jets. Lack was the star of the second with at least four outstanding saves, two off Scheifele on great feeds from Blake Wheeler. The Canucks played with desperation in the third and dominated the early going, but it was now Ondrej Pavelec coming up with some big saves to keep the Jets in front. At 11:50 Jason Garrison with a bomb from the point scored his 6th of the season to tie the game, setting the stage for Setoguchi to get the winner. He fired a low shot to the far corner from the right side for his second of the game and 10th of the year. It was a great set up by Jacob Trouba who picked up his eighth point in the last eight games. Setoguchi becomes the ninth Jet to hit double digits in goals, tying the Jets for the NHL lead in that category. It was Pavelecs 10th start in the last 11 games and he upped his record to 6-2 in the last eight. Final shots were 34-26. In the game against Nashville Predators on Tuesday, Setoguchi took a costly penalty, in this game he scored the winner. "Really happy for him, its been a tough stretch of games and I always want to have those players have an opportunity to respond for their teammates." said Coach Paul Maurice. The Jets passing was very sharp in the first half of the game. "For 30 minutes we had better looks than in any other game weve played. Had great chances." On the Canucks chances. "What were trying to do will come back and bite us sometimes but were going to stick with it. Theres going to be parts of the game they are going to control, we just have to manage it. Our compete level is high, our resiliency is really good." For the third straight game Bogosian led the Jets in ice time, Frolik led in shots on goal with five. Trouba was a plus two and leads the team at plus 10. Jets again were over 30 hits with Byfuglien leading the way with six. It was the Jets final home game before the Olympic break, as they prepare for a four game road trip starting in Montreal Sunday afternoon (TSN 1290). Ray Ban Sunglasses sale . Now his teammates are feeling better about themselves at Fenway Park, too. Ray Ban RB4098 . Sauve confirmed to RDS that he expected an answer from general manager Marc Bergevin soon, though hes also had discussions with several other teams about the free agent forward.MIAMI -- Their big early lead was gone, the Miami Heat were trailing with 3 minutes remaining and the two-time defending champions seemed very much in trouble. They didnt let Boston score again. Thats how to snap a defensive slump. LeBron James scored 11 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, Chris Bosh added 16 and the Heat beat the Celtics 93-86 on Tuesday night -- finishing the game on a 9-0 run after trailing 86-84 with 3:08 left. "Its difficult doing what we do," Bosh said. "But thats why were the champs, to do the difficult thing again and get the job done. Tonight was a good start. We just have to build off of it." Chris Andersen scored 13 points and made all five of his shots for Miami, which had given up at least 100 points in four of its last six games. The Heat are 25-1 when allowing less than 100 points; 5-11 otherwise. Brandon Bass scored 15 points, Kris Humphries had 14 points and 13 rebounds, and Jeff Green had 12 points for the Celtics, who enjoyed a 46-33 edge in rebounds but shot only 39 per cent. And when it was over, Celtics coach Brad Stevens had a simple assessment of the final 3 minutes. "LeBron James happened," Stevens said. James made seven free throws in the final 2:33, the only other points down the stretch coming on a jumper by Ray Allen that put the Heat up for good. James did the rest, while the Celtics missed their final four shots. Rajon Rondo, still coming around after returning from knee surgery, missed all eight of his shots, plus a pair of free throws with the Celtics down four with 44.4 seconds remaining. Avery Bradley, the Celtics other starting guard, was lost in the second quarter with a sprained right ankle. "LeBron got a bunch of calls down the stretch," Bass said. "We expect that. We just wished we could have kept him off the line." The Celtics rallied from a 10-point deficit to win 111-110 in their first trip to Miami this season. They seemed poised for a bigger comeback this time, steadily chipping away at a big Miami lead by getting it down to 11 by halftime, then four entering the fourth. And a dunk by Humphries with 3:08 left -- about a half minute after JJames tried a reverse dunk that rimmed out -- put the Celtics on top for the first time since the opening minutes. Ray Ban RB3044. Thus ended Bostons offence for the evening. "Its the only way were going to be able to win games, if we defend," James said. As if playing without Dwyane Wade isnt difficult enough for Miami -- he was out for the 12th time this season -- the Heat found themselves facing a sticky situation at his position just 71 seconds after tip-off. Allen, who started in Wades spot, was called for two fouls in a span of 11 seconds. But the Heat rolled the dice and left him in until 4.3 seconds remained in the opening quarter, a move that paid off two ways. One, Allen didnt get in any deeper foul trouble. Two, Michael Beasley made those 4.3 ticks on the clock count. Without even time to work up a droplet of sweat, Beasley banked in a 35-footer at the horn of the first quarter to give Miami a 29-15 edge. And another beat-the-clock 3 -- this one by Bosh, with 2.0 seconds left and somewhat less dramatic than Beasleys -- put Miami up 51-40 at intermission. Boston used a 13-2 run to get to 42-35 late in the second. Thats when Greg Oden made his first home-court impact with the Heat. Oden -- playing in Miami for the first time since Nov. 12, 2008 -- blocked a dunk attempt by Green, then after a timeout had a follow slam of a miss by James to help snuff out the Boston rally. The Celtics just kept coming back. The Heat, though, had the final answer. "Erik sits over there and its been a long stretch for them, a hard stretch for them," Stevens said of Spoelstra. "Im sure the last 5 minutes he feels really good about what he can build on moving forward because that teams really good and they didnt even have Wade." NOTES: The Heat are 24-6 when Wade plays, 6-6 when he doesnt. ... Former Heat C Joel Anthony, who was traded to Boston last week, got a video tribute on the scoreboard and a standing ovation during the first quarter. The ovation was slightly less robust when he hit a jumper in the second quarter, though some still stood and clapped. ... James got his trophy for being Eastern Conference player of the month for December at halftime. ' ' '
