NEW YORK (AP) Patrik Laine went more than a year between hat tricks Chris Terry Jersey Womens , and still the 19-year-old Finnish star is on a remarkable pace.Laine got his fourth hat trick and set a career high with his 38th goal, lifting the Winnipeg Jets over the New York Rangers 3-0 on Tuesday night.The 19-year-old star had been the youngest ever with three hat tricks – getting there at 18 years, 302 days – but it had been over a year since his last three-goal game. He joins Jimmy Carson and Dale Hawerchuk as the only players with four hat tricks before turning 20.Laine has at least a point in nine straight games (13 goals, six assists) and has scored multiple goals in four of his past five contests. He’s two goals behind Washington’s Alex Ovechkin for the NHL lead this season.Laine has taken off since being put on a line with Nikolaj Ehlers and Paul Stastny.”Our line is playing pretty good hockey,” Laine said.Laine is the first visiting teenager with a hat trick at Madison Square Garden since Toronto’s Ted Kennedy on Dec. 27, 1944, according to Sportsnet Stats.Steve Mason made 31 saves as the Jets extended their winning streak to three. Winnipeg has earned points in seven straight road games (6-0-1) and improved to 14-6-5 against the Eastern Conference.”He didn’t get overworked,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said. ”He had a couple of tough ones early Dennis Cholowski Jersey Womens , a couple of squeezers right around the net that he made a good save on, and then a lot of what came to him, he saw clean, so it was a good start for sure.”Henrik Lundqvist made his 798th career appearance and stopped 31 shots as the Rangers lost for the first time in four games. Lundqvist made 50 saves in each of his previous two games.”At the end of the night, we tried hard and tried battling back in the third,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. ”That’s a real good team we played tonight and they were able to get their best shooter to get a few good looks.”Laine opened the scoring by putting a wrist shot past Lundqvist at 19:05 of the first period. He added on midway through the second period when he snapped off another wrist shot, then scored into an empty net with 34 seconds left.Laine, the third overall pick of the 2016 draft Matt Read Jersey Womens , scored 36 goals in his rookie season. He leads the NHL in goals since entering the league with 74. Ovechkin and Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov each have 73.Mason made his first appearance since Jan. 9th, when he was sidelined with a concussion. The veteran will play important minutes down the stretch as Winnipeg looks to lighten Connor Hellebuyck’s workload before the playoffs. The franchise hopes to win a playoff series for the first time in its history.Winnipeg teammates Mark Schiefele and Blake Wheeler collided in the first period. Schiefele initially returned to action but was later ruled out for the game with an upper-body injury. His last shift ended with 3:58 remaining in the second period.Rangers forward Vladislav Namestnikov skated in his first game at MSG since being acquired at the trade deadline from the Tampa Bay Lightning.NOTES: Twelve members of the gold medal-winning U.S. women’s Olympic hockey team were honored during the first period. … Rangers F Pavel Buchnevich skated in his 100th game. … Rangers F Mika Zibanejad missed the game with the flu. … Rangers D Kevin Shattenkirk skated with the team in practice for the first time since having a knee operation in January. … Winnipeg sent goalie Michael Hutchinson to the AHL to make room for Mason. … Defenseman Toby Enstrom missed his fourth consecutive game.UP NEXTJets: Play at New Jersey on Thursday night.Rangers: Play at Tampa Bay on Thursday night.— WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Dustin Byfuglien returned to the Winnipeg lineup and helped carry the Jets to a victory.The defenseman had a goal and two assists in a 4-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night after missing the previous two games with an upper-body injury.“I thought we put together a decent game,” said Byfuglien, who had his first goal of the season. “It’s nice to be back and we got our two points.”Patrik Laine and Bryan Little scored power-play goals, and Andrew Copp also scored for Winnipeg (4-2-1).Connor Hellebuyck made 26 saves for the Jets, playing the third game in a season-long six-game homestand (2-0-1).Bo Horvat scored for the Canucks (4-3-0), who had their three-game winning streak halted.Anders Nilsson stopped 28 shots for Vancouver Matt Hendricks Jersey Womens , which finished its six-game road trip 3-3.“We’ve got to take positives out of this (road trip),” Horvat said. “Obviously to go 3-3 — it would have been nice to go 4-2 — but I thought we played some good hockey on this road trip.“I think we opened up a lot of eyes in our room and kind of created a culture for ourselves and have an identity to our team a little bit, where we’re going to be competing every single night and playing fast. So it’s all about consistency now throughout the lineup.”Little broke a 1-1 tie at 4:58 of the third period with a backhand shot that beat Nilsson. He also picked up an assist.Laine beat Nilsson with a one-timer late in the first period. Copp made it 3-1 with 7:14 left in the third and Byfuglien scored his first of the season at 14:43.Winnipeg was coming off a 5-4 overtime loss to Edmonton on Tuesday. In that game, the Jets gave up a three-goal lead entering the third period.“After that last game we were pretty hungry in the third period,” Little said. “It was our best period. Once we got that go-ahead goal it seemed like we turned it up even more. That’s what you need. That’s what we were looking to do.”Winnipeg led 1-0 after the first period, and Vancouver tied it in the second.Laine scored with 64 seconds remaining, taking a pass from Blake Wheeler across the front of the net and scoring past Nilsson on the stick side.Horvat scored his fourth goal of the season on a great effort to get around Winnipeg defenseman Jacob Trouba, hang on to a bouncing puck and shoot it past Hellebuyck at 12:54 of the second.Vancouver continued a power play at the start of the third period Eric Fehr Jersey Womens , but wasn’t successful on its second man advantage in the game. Winnipeg was 2 for 2.After giving his team the 2-1 lead at 4:58, Little hit the post. Copp then scored his first goal of the season when he banged in a bouncing puck in the crease at 12:45, and Byfuglien sealed it with 5:17 remaining.Vancouver defenseman Troy Stecher said returning home with six points was good and the trip showed them one important thing.“That we never quit, that’s for sure,” Stecher said. “I think we’re a group that’s going to have to win by committee. We’re learning how to win as a group.“Everybody’s trying to play to the best of their ability, but some nights aren’t going to go the way you want.”NOTES: Wheeler’s goal was his 500th point with the Jets franchise. It ranks second behind Ilya Kovalchuk during his time with the Atlanta Thrashers. … After being outshot 7-1 six minutes in, Winnipeg ramped it up and had an 11-8 edge at the end of the opening period.UP NEXTWinnipeg: Hosts Arizona on SaturdayVancouver: Hosts Boston on Saturday.
