Mark Scheifele had a four point night as the Winnipeg Jets defeated New Jersey 8-4 Friday at Canada Life Centre.
Scheifele recorded his fourth career hat trick and ended his seven-game goal drought. He also drew an assist on Josh Morrissey’s fourth goal of the season.
Nikolaj Ehlers added a pair of goals for the Jets while the rest went to Kristian Vesalainen and Adam Lowry.
14 Winnipeg skaters and goaltender Connor Hellebuyck had at least one point.
Jersey erased a 3-0 deficit thanks to unanswered goals from Damon Severson, Jack Hughes, Nico Hischier and Ryan Graves.
Hischier and Graves scored 39 seconds apart early in the second period.
It was all Winnipeg from that point on as the Jets scored the final five goals of the game.
Hellebuyck finished the night with 33 saves.
The Jets (11-8-4) continue their four-game homestand Sunday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
