Wheeler, Scheifele lead Jets past Avalanche 6-1

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) That 15-game goal drought was not bothering Blake Wheeler. And now it is over.

Wheeler scored twice and added an assist and Mark Scheifele assisted on three goals as the Winnipeg Jets defeated the Colorado Avalanche 6-1 on Friday night.

"With the amount of ice time I get, the guys I play with, the expectation would be that you'd score a goal once in a while," said Wheeler, who has 16 goals and 48 assists through 58 games. "Sometimes it doesn't happen. It's a crazy game. I had 13 shots the last two games before this one, and one behind the goal line goes in. I don't lose much sleep over it."
