Wheeler delivers decisive tally, Jets edge Wild

(TSX / STATS) -- WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Winnipeg Jets captain Blake Wheeler showed the benefits of having a short memory as he brushed aside a goaltender interference ruling to come back minutes later to net the winning goal in a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Wild.

The right winger appeared to have set up center Mark Scheifele to break a 3-3 tie near the midway mark of the third period but officials ruled Wheeler had bumped goalie Devan Dubnyk in his crease after the Wild challenged the play.

No matter. Just a few minutes later, Wheeler broke into the Wild zone with rookie left winger Kyle Connor, took a nice saucer pass and deked out Dubnyk to give the Jets (4-3-0) the lead at 13:14.
