Barret Jackman's surprising goal from the neutral zone with 1:03 to play lifted the St. Louis Blues to a thrilling 5-4 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.
Robert Bortuzzo gathered the puck off a neutral zone faceoff win and sent it across the ice to Jackman, who played the puck off the boards and fired it from above the blue line and past an unsuspecting Ondrej Pavelec for the game- winner.
Not only did Jackman score from an unorthodox spot on the ice, but it was also his first goal since Dec. 11.
Vladimir Tarasenko, Jori Lehtera and Jaden Schwartz each tallied a goal and an assist, Steve Ott also lit the lamp and Brian Elliott stopped made 12 saves for the Blues, who have won their last two games.
Blake Wheeler and Andrew Ladd posted a goal and an assist, while Lee Stempniak and Michael Frolik scored for the Jets. Michael Hutchinson allowed four goals on seven shots and was replaced by Pavelec, who stopped 19 shots.
