Granlund opened the scoring with a redirect in front. The forward deflected a shot from defenseman Ryan Suter at the 8:47 mark of the first period.

It was Granlund's 13th goal of the season and his 10th point in his last eight games. The goal came on the power play after Winnipeg's Josh Morrissey was whistled for interference.

Zucker put his team up 2-0 early in the second. Not long after getting denied by Hellebuyck on a breakaway, Zucker buried a rebound from off the end boards. Zucker's 16th goal was his first since Dec. 27 — a span of seven games. Granlund picked up one of the assists on Zucker's goal.

The Jets took advantage of a power play to get on the board early in the third. Perreault tipped in a pass from Blake Wheeler on the doorstep just 47 seconds into the period. Winnipeg started the third with the man-advantage after a penalty late in the second period.
