Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) - The Winnipeg Jets erased a two-goal deficit in the third period and Olli Jokinen scored the decisive shootout goal to cap a 4-3 come-from-behind win over the St. Louis Blues at MTS Centre.
Jokinen beat St. Louis netminder Brian Elliott with a wrister on the glove side to open the seventh round. Ondrej Pavelec then turned away a bid from Chris Stewart.
It looked as though it was shaping up to be a happy homecoming for Blues forward Alexander Steen. The Winnipeg native beat Pavelec twice, the second tally giving the visitors a 3-1 lead at the 3:34 mark of the third.
Steen's father, Thomas, was a standout player for the original Winnipeg franchise, accumulating 817 points in 950 games for the Jets from 1981-95.
However, the current incarnation fought back with two goals in a 4:53 span.
