from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,
... despite rallying from a 4-1 deficit with three goals in the third period, the Jets left Scottrade Center empty-handed after Ondrej Pavelec was fooled by a long shot by defenceman Barret Jackman from just outside the blue line with 63 seconds left in regulation as the St. Louis Blues skated away with a 5-4 victory on Tuesday night.
Pavelec came on in relief at 11:09 of the second period and was mostly brilliant, turning aside the first 19 shots that he faced.
But it was the seeing-eye wrister from Jackman that is going to be plastered all over the highlights and will likely be the lasting memory.
“It went in. It was nothing more magical than that,” said Jets head coach Paul Maurice, when asked for an explanation of what he saw on the game-winning goal.
In watching the replay, it wasn't even clear if Jackman was trying to dump the puck in or actually take a shot on net.
Pavelec declined all media requests, choosing not to provide a description of the play in question.
Below, watch the game-winning goal and highlights from the game...
