Jets down Blues 4-3 in SO after Trouba injured
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Olli Jokinen scored his second goal of the night in the seventh round of the shootout to help the Winnipeg Jets rally for a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Friday night.
The game was halted in the second period when defenseman Jacob Trouba was stretchered off the ice following a crash into the boards.
Tobias Enstrom scored the tying goal in the third and Evander Kane also scored for the Jets. Ondrej Pavelec made 29 saves.
Alexander Steen scored twice and David Backes also scored for the Blues.
Trouba slammed into the boards after missing a hit early in the second period. The Jets' top 2012 draft pick managed a wave as fans shouted his name while he was being wheeled off.
A Jets spokesman said Trouba was taken to hospital for X-rays and was alert, communicating and moving all his limbs.
