Evander Kane scored one minute into overtime to give the Winnipeg Jets a 1-0 win over the Los Angeles Kings Thursday night at MTS Centre. The Kings fell to 3-0-2 under Darryl Sutter, and have yet to lose a game in regulation under their new head coach.
Jonathan Bernier picked up where Jonathan Quick left off Wednesday, saving all 25 shots in regulation before allowing the game-winner to Kane in overtime. Bernier fell to 2-4-1 on the season.
The Kings outshot the Jets 13-9 in the first period and 12-8 in the second period, but despite the Kings' relative assault on Winnipeg goaltender Chris Mason the game remained scoreless heading into overtime. The Jets outshot the Kings 8-6 in the third period and 2-0 in overtime. Mason saved all 31 shots he faced for the shutout victory.
The Kings return home to face the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday in the opening game of a six-game homestand.
