Winnipeg Jets Secure Shutout Victory Against Seattle Kraken

Laurent Brossoit's Stellar Performance Leads Jets to Win

On March 8, 2024, the Winnipeg Jets faced off against the Seattle Kraken at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle. The Jets emerged victorious with a convincing 3-0 shutout, showcasing their defensive prowess and goaltending excellence.

Key Moments:

  • Mark Scheifele Breaks the Ice: At 7:15 of the third period, Mark Scheifele capitalized on a play set up by Vladislav Namestnikov, slotting the puck past Kraken goaltender Joey Daccord to give the Jets a 1-0 lead.
  • Adam Lowry Doubles the Advantage: Just over four minutes later, Adam Lowry jammed in a rebound after Nino Niederreiter's drive to the net, extending the Jets' lead to 2-0.
  • Nikolaj Ehlers Seals the Win: With an empty net, Nikolaj Ehlers sealed the victory for Winnipeg, scoring the final goal at 19:10 of the third period.

Seattle forward Jaden Schwartz left the game in the first period due to an upper body injury, further hampering the Kraken's chances.
