Matt Duchene and Alex Tanguay each collected their ninth goal of the season in last night’s overtime loss to Calgary. Nick Holden was moved from defense to a fourth-line forward and we saw a much better result. Holden scored a second period goal, recording his second goal of the season with Zach Redmond and Michael Sgarbossa picking up the assists.

The Jets are playing pretty well thus far, sitting at a record of (13-9-4, 30 points) in the Central Division. They are coming off a 3-2 overtime victory over the Edmonton Oilers Wednesday night. Jacob Trouba notched the second-star honors, recording a goal and two helpers to help lift the Jets over the woeful Oilers. Trouba’s second assist of the night was to Mathieu Perreault, scoring the game-winning goal just 17 seconds into the overtime period.
