Mark Scheifele scored the only goal in a shootout and the Winnipeg Jets clinched a playoff spot with a 5-4 win over the Nashville Predators on Sunday night.
The Jets are in the postseason for the first time since 2014-15 and just the second time since their relocation from Atlanta before the 2011-12 season. The franchise hasn’t won a playoff series since 2007.
Jets rookie Kyle Connor scored a power-play goal and had two assists Samson Ebukam Jersey , giving him seven goals in six games. That includes a pair of overtime goals in Winnipeg’s previous two games and gives him 29 on the season. That’s tied with Vancouver’s Brock Boeser for the rookie goal scoring lead. Boeser’s season ended March 5 with a fracture in his lower back.
Dustin Byfuglien also scored on the power play, and Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler each added a goal and an assist for Winnipeg.
Kyle Turris, Ryan Ellis, and Viktor Arvidsson each had a goal and an assist, and Roman Josi also scored for the Predators.
PENGUINS 5, FLYERS 4, OT
PITTSBURGH (AP) – Bryan Rust redirected a pass from Sidney Crosby 2:25 into overtime and Pittsburgh finished off a season sweep of Philadelphia.
The Flyers tied it on Sean Couturier’s goal with 43 seconds left in regulation, but the Penguins controlled the extra period. Rust ended it when he got his stick down in time to get a piece of Crosby’s pass from the top of the left circle and knock it by Petr Mrazek to give the Penguins their first sweep of Philadelphia since the 2006-07 season.
Crosby’s spectacular goal 17 seconds into the third period gave Pittsburgh a 4-3 advantage. Crosby held off Couturier high in the zone, skated to the left dot and ripped a wrist shot over Philadelphia defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere and Mrazek’s glove. Couturier exacted a bit of revenge when he knotted it late to assure the Flyers of at least a point.
Still Demaryius Thomas Jersey , the Penguins pulled within three points of first-place Washington in the Metropolitan Division and moved two points clear of Philadelphia, which pulled into a third-place tie with Columbus.
BRUINS 2, WILD 1, OT
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Brad Marchand scored 28 seconds into overtime to lift Boston over Minnesota.
Tuukka Rask made 24 saves and David Pastrnak also scored for the Bruins, who improved to 47-17-10.
Marchand got his second goal in two games and his third in a four-game span. His 33rd of the season was his eighth game-winner, tying a career high. Marchand also assisted on the first goal.
Minnesota has earned a point in five straight games. Alex Stalock got the start in net after Devan Dubnyk started Saturday’s win against Nashville. Stalock made 26 saves.
CANUCKS 4, STARS 1
DALLAS (AP) – Reid Boucher and Nic Dowd scored rare goals on the power play, and Vancouver rallied to beat reeling Dallas.
Dallas’ Mattias Janmark started the scoring with a short-handed goal in the first period Tyrann Mathieu Jersey , but Boucher tied it on the same man advantage. It was Boucher’s third goal this season, all coming over two games in Dallas.
Jake Virtanen added a third-period goal and Tyler Motte scored into an empty net for Vancouver, which won for only the second time in 10 games.
The Stars are on an 0-6-2 skid and have all but fallen out of playoff contention.
DUCKS 5, OILERS 4, OT
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) – Hampus Lindholm scored 1:21 into overtime to lift the Anaheim Ducks over the Edmonton Oilers.
