Video: Jets outlast Blues in seven-round shootout

Oct 19, 2013, 12:21 AM EDT

The Winnipeg Jets conjured up a late third-period comeback and then beat the St. Louis Blues in the shootout by a final score of 4-3.

The skills competition, itself, took seven rounds, with Olli Jokinen scoring the winner on a wrist shot over the glove of Blues netminder Brian Elliott.

The comeback win came at a price, however. Winnipeg’s rookie defenseman Jacob Trouba was taken off the ice on a stretcher after falling heavily face-first into the end boards early in the second period.

The Blues didn’t get the victory, however the St. Louis Cardinals punched their ticket to the 2013 World Series Friday evening thanks to a win in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series over the L.A. Dodgers.

    That’s what happens when you dominate most of the game, miss WAY too many opportunities, then try and coast through the 3rd period. Hats off to the Jets for fighting back. Disappointed in my Blues tonight.

    The blues hit the post at least 3 times in the opening period. We were lucky to be down by just 1 goal after the first. And you could tell St.Louis was tired by the third. Good game. Not great. But good.

    Unfortunately posts don’t count for anything but a shot on net. Jets definitely got some lucky bounces that the Blues could’ve used, but that’s how it goes. The goalie taunting by the fans is annoying though…

    Ah yes the silly rabbit who called out Hawk fans just 2 days ago for being homers is out in full force. Ok so I assume you will need examples of how you twist things just to make some dumb point. Yesterday you accused Hawk fans of using the term lucky when actually no one did. Your comment on this game. “Jets definitely got lucky”. Yet another homer comment, ” that’s what happens when you dominate”. Which was a backhanded compliment. See what I did there. I only mentioned everything I wanted you to see, exactly like you did 2 days ago. Hopefully you see what I’m getting at here, but I will assume you do not. Just because your team wins does not mean they were the best team on the ice that day. Bounces and calls go your way and if you take advantage of it your chances of winning are better. Just because your team loses any day does not mean they were dominated by the other team. I realize you have Hawk envy and can’t see the reality when it hits you square in the face but believe it or not fans will have a different opinion than yours which does not make them homers.

    Nice novel that makes no sense. I said they for some lucky bounces- did you see two of their goals? Ricocheting off multiple players… I said the Blues could have used those lucky bounces as they rang about five shots off the post or crossbar. Didn’t I commend the Jets for battling back? Yes I did. That doesn’t sound like “our team is still better, but the Jets got lucky”. Nope, the Jets were the better team, and capitalized on their opportunities. Good try though!
