The 5-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche Sunday night was a win that was all about statistics for the Winnipeg Jets. wholesale nfl jerseys . The Jets now have 64 points, which is the same as eighth place Toronto in the Eastern Conference, one less than Southeast Division leading Florida, but both the Leafs and Panthers have games in hand. The win extended the Jets win streak to three, the first time they have hit that mark since the turn of the calendar. Their season high winning streak is four, and theyll try and match that Tuesday against Philadelphia (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). Keep in mind puck drop is just after 6 pm. The team is now 2-0 in their eight game home stand. Evander Kane opened the scoring on Sunday, the eighth time this year he has done so, and the Jets are now 7-1 in those games. 19 of his 22 goals have come in victories and Kanes five shots on goal lead the team. Bryan Little scored 1:45 after Kane did. That turned out to be the winner, and it was Littles team leading sixth game winner of the season. It was also his second straight two-goal game and fourth of the season. Little now has seven goals in his last nine games. Earlier this season he had a stretch of nine goals in 11 games. Blake Wheeler had a career high 4 point game, all assists. Wheeler had a goal and two assist Friday against Boston giving him seven points in two games, and 10 points in his last five games. Andrew Ladd snapped a 13 game goalless drought with a power play marker in the third. Ladd also added an assist. Yes, the power play connected twice in the game, after going four games without a goal. In fact, heading into Sundays game, the Jets had only one power play goal in their previous 12 games. While they tallied some goals, the Jets continued to struggle the other way, giving up a shorthanded goal, which has now happened in five the last six games. Kyle Wellwood had a goal and an assist giving him five points in his last five games including two goals. Wellwoods goal came 46 seconds after the Avs had cut the Jets lead to 2-1 on a goal by rookie Gabriel Landeskog, who finished the game with nine shots on goal. Which brings us to Ondrej Pavelec, who was terrific on Sunday. Colorado outshot Winnipeg 18-8 in the second period. If you take away the messy game in Pittsburgh, Pavelec has now given up 13 goals in the last 8 games. Dustin Byfuglien picked up two assists giving him nine points in the last six games. He was also a plus two in the game. Eric Fehr was back in the lineup and played over 11 minutes on a line with Nik Antropov and Tim Stapleton. Coach Claude Noel was able to share the ice time, as Chris Thorburn was the only Jet under 10 minutes. Thorburn missed some time in the first after getting cut by a high stick and missed time in the third after a scrap with Cody McLeod. The game was feisty and physical. Thorburn went after Cody McLeod after McLeod went leg on leg with Jim Slater., and Kane picked up a double minor in the third going after Shane OBrien. As much as the head coach Claude Noel and the players were happy with the win, all agreed there were some sloppy moments. "I was happy with the way we played in the first," Noel stated. "We gave up some power plays in the second and they had eight good scoring chances on them. (That is where Pavelec perhaps saved the day) "Pavs been real good. Huge in the second. I dont get nervous watching him. There is a sense of calm. Wade Flaherty has helped him through the maturing process." Alexander Burmistrov had another good game and was key during Kanes double minor in the third period, where his great work resulted in a minor penalty to Kyle Quincey. "[Burmistrov] was good all game, so was his line. He was strong on the puck, took them off the power play. That could have been dangerous," continued Noel. It looks like 90 points may be good enough to make playoffs, meaning Winnipeg needs 13 wins in their final 21 games. That number of course will move depending on the performance of the teams that the Jets are chasing. wholesale jerseys . LOUIS -- With Vladimir Tarasenko and T. cheap nfl jerseys . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell while figuring out which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value.CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Cam Newton will undergo surgery Wednesday on his left ankle and will be sidelined for four months, the Carolina Panthers announced. The team said Tuesday the Pro Bowl quarterback has experienced soreness in the ankle since the end of last season and the problem simply wasnt getting better. "The ankle was sore after the San Francisco game and we wanted to see if rest would calm it down, but it is still bothering him and the decision was made to address it," Panthers trainer Ryan Anderson said in a press release. The Panthers lost to the 49ers on Jan. 12 in the NFC divisional playoffs. The surgery will be performed by Panthers team physician Robert Anderson at Carolinas Medical Center. If all goes as expected, Newton could return before training begins at the end of July. Newton led the Panthers to a 12-4 record last season and the NFC South championship. He was also selected to the Pro Bowl. The news is particularly concerning for the Panthers since Newton is expected to be working with almost an entirely new group of wide receivers this season. The Panthers released Steve Smith, the franchises all-time leader in receptions in a salary cap related move last week. Brandon LaFell, the teams other starter last season, signed with New England in free aagency while top reserves Ted Ginn Jr. cheap jerseys. and Domenik Hixon signed free agent deals with Arizona and Chicago respectively. Given that Newton wont be back until just before the start of training camp means he wont have much time to develop chemistry with the new receivers the team brings in to play this season. The Panthers havent signed any free agent receivers this off-season, although they did recently visit with Jerricho Cotchery from the New York Jets. Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Ron Rivera were unavailable for comment. Newtons father, Cecil Newton, reached by telephone, said he hasnt spoken to his son about the ankle and didnt feel comfortable discussing the injury in the media. He said Cam Newton has been taking classes at Auburn where he is working on his college degree. Newton has started all 48 regular season games since arriving as the No. 1 overall pick out of Auburn in 2011. This past season Newton threw for 3,379 yards with a career-high 24 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions. He also led the Panthers on five come-from-behind victories in the fourth quarter. In three seasons Newton has thrown for 11,299 yards passing with 64 touchdowns and 42 interceptions. Hes also run for 2,032 yards and 28 touchdowns. ' ' '
