LAS VEGAS (AP) — Kyle Connor scored in overtime and the Winnipeg Jets held off the Vegas Golden Knights 5-4 in their return from a two-week hiatus.
Mattias Janmark scored twice for Vegas in the third period, including a tying goal with 8.1 seconds left, but Winnipeg's Connor Hellebuyck improved to 4-1-1 career against the Golden Knights by stopping 42 shots.
The Jets hadn't played since beating St. Louis 4-2 at home Dec. 19 due to COVID-19 outbreaks. They hadn't been on the road since Dec. 10, when they lost 4-3 in a shootout at Vancouver.
Jansen Harkins, Kristian Reichel, Andrew Copp and Paul Stastny also scored for the Jets.
