Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) - Al Montoya turned aside all 24 shots he faced in his season debut, backstopping the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils at MTS Centre.
Evander Kane scored two goals for Winnipeg, which snapped a three-game losing streak. The Jets opened the season with consecutive wins before the slide.
Cory Schneider stopped 32 shots for a Devils team still seeking their first win (0-3-3). The six-game winless drought is the worst to start a season since the club moved to New Jersey.
The Devils were 0-for-5 on the power play and failed to score on a two-man advantage for 1:12 early in the second period.
Shortly after the Jets killed the 5-on-3 power play, Kane went around defenseman Adam Larsson on a rush down the left wing boards and had his feed into the crease pinball in off rearguard Andy Greene at the 2:57 mark.
Kane added an empty-netter with 57 seconds remaining in the third period. Andrew Ladd then scored 20 seconds later with Schneider back between the pipes.
