The Winnipeg Jets are off to a solid start with a 3-1-0 record following a surprisingly easy 4-1 victory at MSG versus the New York Rangers. Winnipeg is a postseason hopeful and beating the Rangers on the road was a huge accomplishment despite the season being so young. Mats Zuccarello scored the Rangers lone goal butt Henrik Lundqvist could not make it stand up with three goals allowed on 28 shots. Nikolai Ehlers tallied his first career goal and Mark Stuart tallied an empty netter with Bryan Little scoring on the power play and down a man. The star of the game was netminder Michael Hutchinson who brushed aside 40 shots.
