Oct 13 (The Sports Xchange) - Jets 3, Devils 0

A defensive clampdown helped the Winnipeg Jets reverse their fortunes. The Jets allowed just 24 shots to the New Jersey Devils in a 3-0 win Sunday night at the MTS Centre.

Winnipeg goalie Al Montoya was sharp while recording the shutout in his first action of the season.

In the moments before Winnipeg left wing Evander Kane opened the scoring early in the second period, Montoya made a pad save on Devils right winger Michael Ryder during a New Jersey five-on-three power-play.
