Kyle Connor scores twice in 3rd period, Jets beat Oilers 4-2

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Kyle Connor scored twice in the third period in the Winnipeg Jets' 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night.

Blake Wheeler and Patrik Laine also scored and Connor Hellebuyck made 36 saves for the Jets. They have won four in a row to move into a wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

"It was a weird game, we had some pretty awesome efforts at our goal line to keep pucks out," Wheeler said. "Our goalie was really good again, and I think we just kind of stayed with it and allowed the game to evolve and we were able to get some opportunities that we were able to capitalize on."
