WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Mathieu Perreault viewed his 100th NHL goal as a lucky tap rather than a highlight-reel milestone.
The Jets forward scored two twice and added an assist to help Winnipeg halt a three-game losing streak with a 5-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday night.
His second goal with 44 seconds left in the game was even initially awarded to linemate Matt Hendricks before it was changed. Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom was behind the net with the puck and shot it straight to Hendricks in the slot. Hendricks fired the puck and Perreault lifted his stick up and deflected it in.
