Scheifele’s hot streak has propelled him to fifth in the NHL in points (46) and tied for fourth in goals (21) entering Monday – two tallies behind teammate Patrik Laine. Goaltender Connor Hellebuyck has won six of his last seven starts, giving up 19 goals and posting a .912 save percentage in that stretch. The Jets lead the NHL in power play percentage (30.8 percent) and have nine power-play goals during their winning streak.

Los Angeles has struggled to score all season, ranking last in the NHL in goals per game (2.18) and 28th on the power play (14.3 percent) through Sunday. The Kings dressed four rookies Saturday due to injuries, including forward Matt Luff, who scored his seventh goal in 20 games in the Pittsburgh loss. Goaltender Jonathan Quick made 32 saves Saturday, but his record dropped to 2-8-2 with a career-low .892 save percentage.

Winnipeg F Mathieu Perreault has scored in four straight games, the longest streak of his career.
