VANCOUVER Tampa Bay Lightning Hats Authentic , British Columbia (AP) — Laurent Brossoit’s first career shutout happened in the right building.Brossoit stopped 40 shots at Rogers Arena and Mark Scheifele scored with 1:32 left in the third period as the Jets defeated the Vancouver Canucks 1-0 Saturday night.“This is one of those games I don’t think I will forget,” said Brossoit, who was born in Port Alberni, British Columbia, and grew up in Surrey, on the boarder of Vancouver. “To have that many shots and have the game go the way it did, and have my first shutout here in the building I grew up in, it was definitely a special moment.”The Canucks pulled their goalie in the final minute and mounted a frantic attack. Brossoit faced a barrage of shots.“You never want that kind of chaos but, at the end of the game, for it to go our way Custom Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys , the chaos is fine,” he said.Brossoit improved his record this year to 8-1-1. He has 38 NHL games split between Winnipeg and Edmonton. The game against Vancouver — his first start against the Canucks — was his fourth start this month.“It’s the most consistent amount of starts I’ve gotten in my NHL career,” said the 25-year-old, who had 25 family and friends at the game. “I appreciate the vote of confidence to have me in consistently. It’s easier to prepare.”Head coach Paul Maurice offered some humor while praising Brossoit, who joined Winnipeg this year as a free agent.“Our goalie was our best player,” said Maurice. “He’s earned every start that he’s got.“He just hasn’t given us a reason ever not to start him. As good as he is in the games, he’s equally good in practice, pushing to get better all the time. If he was on a longer term deal I’d talk more nice things about him, but we’ve got to sign him again this year so he’s just all right.”Scheifele scored his 22nd of the season from the left face-off dot on a give-and-go play with defenseman Dustin Byfuglien.The Jets have won 11 of their last 13 games. The victory was Winnipeg’s eighth straight victory over the Canucks.The Canucks lost in regulation for just the second time in nine games (6-2-1).“It’s been a couple of games we’ve lost like that,” said forward Antoine Roussel. “It’s frustrating.“You have to come up on top and learn from those games sometimes. You can’t be losing in the last two minutes of a game. We battle all the way and crack at the end. It hurts.”Vancouver goaltender Jacob Markstrom stopped 22 shots.Vancouver coach Travis Green said the game was “something to hang your hat on” as the Canucks held their ground against the Western Conference-leading Jets.“Our team played great tonight www.officialmapleleafsproshop.com ,” Green said. “One of our better games of the year.“The guys wanted to win bad tonight and they played like it. We’ll be fine if we keep playing like that.”Brossoit showed his quickness in the first period, sticking out a pad to stop a wrist shot by Josh Leivo, and then he blocked Elias Pettersson’s attempt on the rebound.Midway through the second period, with Vancouver pressing on a power play, Brossoit dragged his leg in front of Alexander Edler’s shot from the point through traffic.Markstrom wasn’t as busy, but still needed to be sharp. With just 51 seconds left in the first period he slid across his net to block a shot by Scheifele on a Jets power play.There were loud boos in the third period when Winnipeg defenseman Ben Chairot hit Vancouver’s Tyler Motte with what looked like a high stick. No penalty was called on the play.NOTES: Edler played his 782nd game to surpass Harold Snepts for the most by a Canucks defenseman. .. Second-period shots were 17-7 in favor of Vancouver. . Early in the first period, Byfuglien blasted a slap shot that hit forward Blake Wheeler in the midsection. Wheeler needed help getting to the bench and headed to the dressing room. He returned later in the period. .. Winnipeg center Andrew Copp missed his 10th straight game with an upper-body injury but is expected to return after the Christmas break.UP NEXTJets: Home against Calgary on Thursday.Canucks: At Edmonton on Thursday. The Florida Panthers roll into Columbus for a Thursday matchup against the Blue Jackets with a five-game winning streak after a 2-1 victory on Tuesday night on the road over the Philadelphia Flyers.The Blue Jackets (10-6-2) are also playing well lately, having gone 2-0-2 in a four-game regulation unbeaten streak. Their latest triumph was a physical 2-1 win on Monday night in Dallas over the Stars.The Panthers (7-5-3) are still stuck near the bottom of the Atlantic Division standings after a slow start, but they’re getting contributions from a host of players during their streak while converting 35 percent (7 of 20) of their power-play opportunities and outscoring their opponents 19-7.Article continues below ...Mike Hoffman’s 13-game streak with a point matches the longest in franchise history. He equaled the Panthers record set by Pavel Bure in 2000 with an assist on Aaron Ekblad’s power-play goal against the Flyers. It’s the longest streak in the NHL this season.“Other things are cool to look back at once I’m a bit older, at my success in the league Toronto Maple Leafs T-Shirts Authentic ,” Hoffman said, according to the team’s website. “Right now, the focus is winning hockey games.”Hoffman, who came to the team in a June trade, has found his groove on the Panthers’ top line with Evgenii Dadonov and Aleksander Barkov.“I love what he’s doing away from the puck,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. “He’s really playing hard and being smart defensively against other team’s top lines.”Dadonov added the Panthers’ second goal against the Flyers. He has a 12-game points streak of his own (seven goals, seven assists).“They’re just playing great hockey, not over-complicating things,” Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad said. “When the play is there they make it and they’re some of the best in the world at it. It’s really fun to watch them play. It’s extremely fun to watch Dadonov create things you didn’t think could possibly happen and (Hoffman) has an unbelievable shot.”Also helping the Panthers win games is 39-year-old goaltender Roberto Luongo. He’s 4-0-0 this season after a 30-save performance against the Flyers that included 17 stops in the third period. He needs one more win to tie Ed Belfour for third on the NHL career wins list for goaltenders with 484.“It’s a good feeling right now being around the locker room,” Luongo said.The Blue Jackets have picked up points in five of six November games (3-1-2) and were atop the Metropolitan Division standings entering Wednesday’s games.Cam Atkinson scored a goal and assisted on the winner by Pierre-Luc Dubois in the Blue Jackets’ win in Dallas.“We’ve had some challenges Toronto Maple Leafs Hoodies Authentic , but we’re setting some things back in place and I think the last couple games we’ve played a lot of good minutes,” Dubois said, according to The Columbus Dispatch. “It’s just trying to keep going in that direction.”Special teams have played a key part in the Blue Jackets’ recent success. They’ve converted four of their eight power-play chances in the last three games after going 0 of 20 in five games before that, and they killed off all four Dallas power plays on Monday. When the Jackets score a power-play goal this season, they’re 6-0-1.“Our penalty kill has done a really good job for us, the power play too,” Dubois told reporters. “That was a struggle at the start of the year, but we’re getting cured right now.”Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky also is starting to pick up his game. He has given up just one goal in five of his last six starts, including the 26-save outing against the Stars.
