Frolik's goal helps Jets edge CanadiensMONTREAL – Winnipeg right winger Michael Frolik scored 1 minute, 4 seconds into the third period to send the Jets on to a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday.
Left winger Andrew Ladd stripped the puck from Montreal goalie Carey Price in front of the goal line in the left corner to set up the goal that restored Winnipeg’s one-goal lead. Ladd, the Jets’ captain, fed the puck out front to Frolik, who scored his 12th goal before Price could scramble back to the net.
