NEW YORK — Olli Jokinen broke a tie with 7:18 left in the third period and then netted an insurance goal moments later to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers and rookie goalie Cam Talbot on Monday night.
Jokinen, a former Rangers player who also assisted on Devin Setoguchi’s tying goal in the second period, gathered the puck after a strange carom off the end boards. He then fired a shot past Talbot, who got a surprise second straight start over No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist, to make it 3-2.
Setoguchi took a pass from Jokinen and snapped a shot that sailed between the legs of New York defenceman Michael Del Zotto and past Talbot.
