WINNIPEG — Mark Scheifele led the way with three goals as the Winnipeg Jets beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 on Thursday.

Pierre-Luc Dubois also hit the mark for the Jets, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Kyle Connor and Josh Morrissey each had two assists.

Conor Garland and Andrei Kuzmenko replied for the Canucks, who had won their previous three games.

Connor Hellebuyck stopped 20 shots in front of the Jets net. For the Canucks, Collin Delia stopped 35 shots.

Garland put the Canucks within a goal of the Jets by scoring after 13:11 of play in the third period. He recovered a rebound from the boards behind the net, then bounced the disc against Hellebuyck.

However, Scheifele restored the Jets’ lead by scoring in an empty-netter with 28 seconds left on the clock.

It was Scheifele’s second hat trick this season and his seventh career.
