Jets edge Flyers in SO

Feb 1, 2012 - 4:40 AM
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Bryan Little scored on the final attempt of the shootout to give the Winnipeg Jets a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

With the final attempt, Little skated in and buried a low wrister between the pads of Ilya Bryzgalov to give the Jets their sixth straight win against the Flyers.

Chris Thorburn scored the lone goal of regulation for the Jets, who had dropped their prior three games. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 27 shots and all three skaters in the shootout.

"It is a huge two points for us," said Pavelec. "It's a really tough team to play against. They have some big guys in the line up. These next couple games are going to be huge for us, especially on the road."

Brayden Schenn scored the only goal of regulation for the Flyers, who have dropped two of their last three, all shootouts. Bryzgalov made 23 stops in the loss.

"I think this is a big stretch for us and even though we got one point, it's disappointing," said Philadelphia winger Scott Hartnell. "We need to start playing well with stretches at home and this is a big month where we have a lot of home games in this month and it's definitely going to take some big efforts by individuals and collectively as a group and some good goaltending, just like it takes every time you're on the road."

This game was a far cry from the previous two contests these two squads had played this season.

The first was a 9-8 win for the Jets in Philly on October 27 while the second was a 6-4 contest, which was also a victory for the Jets in Winnipeg, on November 19.

Skating on the power play in the first period, the Flyers got on the board as Matt Carle sent a hard shot on net from the left side with Schenn jamming it in with 4:49 to play in the first.

The Jets got the only goal of the second period and they did so 2:06 in. Ron Hainsey brought the puck in the left side and left a drop pass at the point for Nik Antropov, who fired the puck over to the right point. From there, Thorburn skated it down to the circle and ripped a wrister into the net.
