Game Report: Jets 4, Blues 0

After the Blues’ Carter Hutton stopped 48 shots in shutting out the Jets on Saturday night, the belief in the Jets’ locker room was united: If they get that many chances again on Sunday, the result will be different.

They were right. The Jets didn’t quite get to 48 shots – they settled for 46 – but scored four times while getting a shutout performance from goalie Connor Hellebuyck as they earned a split of the back-to-back, home-and-home series in the game in Winnipeg.

Jake Allen was in goal for the Blues, who lost in regulation for the third time in their last four games as scoring continued to be a problem.

The Blues were shut out for the second time in that stretch and had three combined goals in the other two games, including the 2-0 win on Saturday night at Scottrade Center.

The Blues were 0-for-4 on the power-play and were out-shot 46-24 in the game. It was their fourth shutout of the season and their first on the road. 

The game was scoreless after the first period before the Jets got goals from Adam Lowry and Patrik Laine, on a power-play, to take a 2-0 lead after the second period. They added goals from Mark Scheifele and Josh Morrisey in the third period.

Worth noting: The Blues activated defenseman Alex Pietrangelo from injured reserve before the game. … Center Kyle Brodziak also was in the lineup after sitting out Saturday night’s game with an undisclosed injury. It was the 800th game of his NHL career. … Sammy Blais was out because of a lower-body injury he suffered on Saturday night.

Looking ahead:
The Blues will be off until Wednesday night, when they will take on the Flames in Calgary.
