WINNIPEG — Speed was the name of the game for the Winnipeg Jets on Friday.

Kyle Connor and his teammates cited quick feet as a key reason the Jets handed the Vancouver Canucks their third straight loss with a 4-1 victory.

“I think that’s when we’re at our best,” said Connor, who had a goal and an assist. “The hands follow, you start to think the game at a higher pace and you see plays more often, too.”

Jack Roslovic, Mark Scheifele and Adam Lowry, with an empty-net goal, also scored for the Jets (9-7-1), who have points in their last four games (3-0-1).

Connor Hellebuyck made 32 saves for Winnipeg, which has won nine consecutive games against the Canucks.

“I thought we had a spark, good jump,” Hellebuyck said. “We were working together as a team, there was no one man trying to do it all himself.”

J.T. Miller scored his team-leading eighth goal of the season for the Canucks (9-5-3), who've gone 0-2-1 in their past three outings. Miller has two goals and a pair of assists in a four-game point streak.

Thatcher Demko stopped 31 shots for Vancouver, which was coming off a 5-2 road loss to Chicago the previous night.

"I liked our game a lot more than I did (against Chicago),” Canucks coach Travis Green said. “I liked our first period a lot. We get the lead. It was a good hockey game.

“Their power play, give them credit, they got a lot of momentum off that power play.”

After a scoreless first period, the Jets had a pair of power plays 16 seconds apart in the middle frame. They capitalized on the second one when Roslovic flipped in his own rebound at 11:54 to tie it 1-1.

Jets 4, Canucks 1: Better effort, but Vancouver heads home after turbulence on the road

  Jets 4, Canucks 1: Better effort, but Vancouver heads home after turbulence on the road WINNIPEG — In their two-game swing through Chicago and Winnipeg, the Vancouver Canucks accomplished something they haven’t done since the first two games of the NHL season. They lost back-to-back games in regulation time. Here’s what we learned from Friday’s 4-1 loss to the Jets at Bell MTS Place which dropped the Canucks’ record to 9-5-3: Better effort comes up short After an off night in Chicago, the Canucks responded with an improved effort but had the game taken away in the second period and couldn’t beat Jets’ hot goalie Connor Hellebuyck in the third.

Scheifele broke the tie exactly five minutes later with a rebound off a Connor shot.

With the Jets ahead 2-1 in the third period, Hellebuyck made a glove grab on a close-in shot by Bo Horvat.

Nine seconds later, Connor stole the puck from Vancouver defenceman Tyler Myers and went in alone and shot a high shot past Demko at 13:35.

“I would like to have that one back, for sure,” Horvat said. “He made a heck of a save on me.”

Myers had a game of highs and lows.

Early in the first period, Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers was tripped up by the stick of Myers, who signed as a free agent July 1 after five seasons in Winnipeg.

Ehlers slid into the boards and was down for a couple minutes, but skated slowly to the bench and quickly returned to the game.

Later in the period, Myers was recognized by the arena announcer for his time with the Jets and received cheers from the crowd at Bell MTS Place.

“It was a nice gesture, a pretty cool moment,” Myers said. “I had a lot of good times here, a lot of good memories.”

Canucks recall defenceman Jalen Chatfield from Utica Comets

  Canucks recall defenceman Jalen Chatfield from Utica Comets The Vancouver Canucks have called up defenceman Jalen Chatfield from the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League. The 23-year-old Chatfield, who has not hit the scoresheet once in 11 games with Utica this season, will add some insurance on the Canucks’ blue-line with Chris Tanev questionable for Friday’s game in Winnipeg (5 p.m., SNETP). Canucks Game Day: Jets having a devil of a time, but Hellebuyck props them up Tanev suffered an upper body injury in Thursday’s 5-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. If he’s unable to play Friday, it’s likely that Swedish defenceman Oscar Fantenberg will take his place and make his regular-season debut against the Jets.

He was also glad Ehlers was fine. As for Connor stealing the puck from him, that wasn't a good memory.

“We were trying to set up a play on the faceoff. Not really sure what I was doing down there,” Myers said with a wry chuckle, noting Connor's speed to get to him.

Canucks defenceman Chris Tanev, who left the Chicago game late in the first period with an upper-body injury, took a hard shot to his right leg from Laine earlier in the period. He limped to the dressing room, but returned after getting the medical green light.

“It's hockey, everyone does it,” he said of going back in the game. “It just hit me in a good spot and leg went numb.”

Jets forward Andrew Copp helped Lowry get his first goal, and first point, of the season. Facing an empty net, Copp passed back to Lowry instead of scoring himself with 1:45 left in the third.

Winnipeg made changes to its top two lines because of veteran centre Bryan Little's injury in Tuesday's loss to New Jersey. The puck from a one-timer shot by teammate Ehlers hit Little near his left ear, perforating his eardrum.

Jets right-winger Blake Wheeler was moved to play centre on the second line between Ehlers and Roslovic. Scheifele was in the middle of Connor and Patrik Laine.

Winnipeg plays the third game of its four-game homestand Sunday afternoon against the Dallas Stars. Vancouver goes home for four straight games starting Sunday against New Jersey.
