WINNIPEG, Manitoba — The Winnipeg Jets overcame a slow start to win their home opener.
Devin Setoguchi had two goals in the third period and linemate Evander Kane also scored and Winnipeg earned a 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night.
The Jets got going in the second period, after being swarmed by the Kings in the first.
Kane was given credit for a goal early in the third period that was switched to Setoguchi after the game ended.
“That was a lucky one,” said Setoguchi, describing the shot by Kane that glanced off his stick.
He teamed with Kane for his second goal as well.
“It was nice to get the other one on the wraparound, but the main thing is we won the game.”
