Stars edge Jets for 2-1 victory
Question of the Day
DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Stars used a strong power play to stay in the Western Conference playoff chase on Monday night.
“Power plays for us won it, and the power play for them got them back into it,” Whitney said.
The victory allowed Dallas to move within a point of the Phoenix Coyotes for the Western Conference’s final playoff spot. The Stars have missed the playoffs in each of the past five seasons.
Winnipeg had a 4-on-3 power play, and added a fifth skater by pulling goalie Al Montoya.
“Kari was excellent. His saves were great, and his puck handling really helped us. He made some good passes.”
The Jets continued to fade in the postseason race.
“It is (tough to make a playoff push like this),” Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. “The final results haven’t been good enough for our team. We’re just getting closer to it. We’re not there.”
The Jets are 2-6-3 in their past 11 games. One of the victories was a 7-2 rout of visiting Dallas eight days earlier.
Ruff said he did not use that game as motivation.
“I didn’t even talk about last week. We had a tough night in goal, and when you start chasing the game, it can get ugly.”
Dallas’ defense has allowed only two goals in the past two games after giving up 16 in the previous three, all losses.
