Saturday nights win was the Jets 29th one-goal game of the season (fourth straight) and the second straight home game that ended in an overtime win. Jets are now 4-1 in overtime. It was the first game since Paul Maurice took over behind the bench that the Jets allowed more than two goals. It was the 14th time the Jets have gone to extra time. The Jets have now won five of their last six. The Jets got the start they were looking for with a good forecheck by Blake Wheeler forcing a turnover that resulted in a goal by Mark Scheifele, his 10th of the year, the eighth Jet to get to double digits this season, the pass to Scheifele coming from Evander Kane. Kane has 14 points in his last 15 games. It was only the second time in the six games under Maurice that the Jets opened the scoring. The Jets then went on the power play and a pass from Jacob Trouba to Blake Wheeler who was in full flight down the left wing led to a goal, as Wheeler went five hole on James Reimer for his team-leading 19th of the year. At the other end of the ice Ondrej Pavelec made at least two outstanding saves, his best a glove save off Phil Kessel. Shots in the first were 12-11 in favour of Toronto. The power play goal by Wheeler was the Jets first in four games, after a 0-for-10 stretch over three games. The second period was a wild one. The Leafs got on the score sheet with a power play goal from Dion Phaneuf, but a power play goal by Bryan Little put the Jets back in front by two, his 17th of the year and fifth on the power play. Little redirected a slap pass from Toby Enstrom, with an assist to Dustin Byfuglien as well. It was the Jets second power play goal of the game, the sixth time this season the Jets scored two power play goals in a game. A screened shot from the blue line from Zach Bogosian made it 4-1 and chased Reimer in favour of Jonathan Bernier. For Bogosian, it was his second of the year from Little and Ladd as the Jets get two in 37 seconds. Troy Bodie got the Leafs to within two at 9:14 making it four goals in 3:01. The Jets then ran into penalty trouble and were two men short for just under a minute, but were successful on the penalty kill and are 7-for-7 on the season when down two men. Tim Gleason with his first of the year at 16:44 made it a one-goal game, 4-3, after forty minutes. Shots in the second were 12-8 Jets. The third period settled down a bit and was not as wide open, although both Pavelec and Bernier still had to make some good saves. Phil Kessel tied the game with 1:33 left scoring his 27th of the year, sending the game to overtime and setting the stage for Dustin Byfuglien to beat Bernier glove side off the rush to end the game with his 12th goal of the year. Andrew Ladd and Michael Frolik drew assists, as Byfuglien was moved back to defence for overtime. Final shots were 32-28 Jets. Enstrom led the Jets in ice time at 26:03, followed by Trouba at 25:39 and Bogosian at 24:15. Devin Setoguchi had five shots on goal, he also led the team in hits with six. Little was the top face-off man at 57 per cent winning 12 of 21. After having his point streak stopped at five Thursday, Little had a goal and an assist in this game. Wheeler and Byfuglien also had two-point nights. It was Pavelecs eighth straight start – he has won five of his last six starts. “At times every functioning part of our game was good,” said Maurice in his post-game news conference. “There were some stretches where we werent great but theyve got a good team and theyre explosive. But an overtime win on a Saturday night against the Leafs, well take it and enjoy every inch of it. Emotions can get away on you in a game like this but I didnt see that from our group.” Coach Maurice felt this win is another confidence builder for the team. On Byfuglien going back to defence in overtime: “Its an unbelievable luxury for us. I always wanted to go three forwards and one D in overtime and just go, open it up, trade chances four on four. Having Byfuglien move back is a big benefit for us.” The Jets are in Chicago Sunday night for the final game of the season against the Hawks (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). The ‘Hawks have won all three prior meetings this season. Its the seventh back-to-back of the season (0-6), and ends a stretch of three games in four nights. Brad Richardson Coyotes Jersey . Toronto will also send a 2015 second-round pick to Atlanta in the deal. Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri had been shopping Salmons and his cap-friendly contract through last weeks draft, hoping to turn him into an asset that can help the team next season. The 34-year-old can be bought out of the $7 million hes owed in 2014-15, the final year of his deal, for just $1 million if hes waived prior to Monday evening.

The Argentina international, who has scored 19 goals in 20 games for City this season, was hurt at the start of the second half in the 6-3 win over Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday.HOUSTON -- Just when it looked as if things couldnt get any worse for the Houston Texans in this dreadful season, it has. The Texans sunk to a new low on Sunday with a 13-6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars to extend their franchise-record skid to nine games. A playoff team the past two years, Houston (2-9) was expected to contend for a Super Bowl in the preseason and won its first two games. Soon poor play by quarterback Matt Schaub and a slew of injuries started the losing streak. A change at quarterback to Case Keenum gave the Texans some life, but the losses continued to pile up and they were soon dealing with an illness to coach Gary Kubiak. But as bad as things had gotten, most people assumed that facing the lowly Jaguars (2-9), who picked up their first win just two weeks ago, would be just what Houston needed to break out of its funk. Instead Maurice Jones-Drews touchdown on Jacksonvilles first drive put the Jaguars on top, and they never trailed against an inept and ineffective Texans offence. "I respect the Jaguars, but I just never thought ... that this is something that would happen. Especially in the way it happened," running back Ben Tate said. "I feel very embarrassed and bad for the city." Josh Scobee kicked field goals of 30 and 53 yards to help the Jaguars win for the second time in three games. Keenum had the worst performance in his five starts, throwing for just 169 yards with an interception. Kubiak wouldnt commit to sticking with Keenum, saying he never makes decisions right after games. "Obviously we didnt execute worth a darn offensively," Kubiak said. "Defensively we were on the field pretty much the whole football game." Houston (2-9) was driving late when rookie Ryan Davis grabbed a one-handed interception off a deflection by Keshawn Martin to seal the win. The Jaguars pushed their lead to 13-6 with Scobees 53-yard field goal with about seven minutes remaining. Houston got lucky on its next drive when Keenum threw a ball right into the hands of Jacksonville rookie Johnathan Cyprien, but he couldnt hold on to it. It didnt matter much though as the Texans ended up punting a few plays later anyway. Keenum shouldered the blame for the loss. "Im very frustrated right now," Keenum said. "We had guys open, we hadd the right play calls and I didnt see them I didnt hit them.dddddddddddd" Jacksonville entered the game averaging an NFL-worst 61.7 yards rushing a game, but finished with 118. Chad Henne was 23 of 32 for 239 yards and Cecil Shorts led the team with eight catches for 71 yards. Kubiak coached from the booth for the second straight week on the advice of his doctors after returning to work last week after recovering from a mini-stroke. After the game he was left to answer questions about his job security and why his team cant get things together. Henne was sacked and fumbled on third down late in the third quarter. The Jaguars recovered and attempted a 49-yard field goal, but J.J. Watt swatted it down and the Texans returned it 25 yards. It was the second time this season that Watt has blocked a field goal. Houston didnt take advantage of the opportunity, and Jacksonville got the ball at its 40 after Dennis Johnson was stuffed for no gain on fourth-and-1 early in the fourth quarter. Rookie Denard Robinson came in for one play on Jacksonvilles next drive, and launched a long and accurate pass on third-and-5 downfield to Shorts. But Johnathan Joseph was there to break it up and the Jaguars had to punt again. Jones-Drew gave the Jaguars an early lead when he scored on fourth-and-1 from the 1 on the first drive. Jones-Drew had a 41-yard catch and run and Ace Sanders grabbed a 51-yard pass to set up the score. Jones-Drew had a 44-yard run in the second quarter on a drive that ended with a 30-yard field goal by Scobee to make it 10-0. Houston hadnt made a first down on four straight possessions and had just 20 total yards before a 29-yard run by Johnson 4 1/2 minutes before halftime. But the offence soon stalled again after Keenum was sacked and the Texans settled for a 49-yard field goal to cut the lead to 10-3 at halftime. Keenum was terrible in the first half, going 5 for 12 with 32 yards. His tough day started early when he was sacked by Andre Branch for a loss of 19 yards on third down on Houstons first series. NOTES: Olympic gold medallist Mary Lou Retton attended the game and served as an honorary team captain. ... Houstons Andre Johnson, who had a career-high 273 yards receiving in his previous game against Jacksonville, managed just 36 yards receiving on Sunday.
