Pittsburgh Penguins 4 Winnipeg Jets 2 (Jets 34-34-10, 17-16-5 home) – With Thursdays loss the Jets are officially eliminated from the playoff race with four games to go. The Penguins meanwhile will clinch top spot in the Metropolitan Division. The only goal of the first period came just as a Jets penalty expired, with Beau Bennett getting his third of the year, Sidney Crosby picking up the first of his two assists. Coach Paul Maurice also took a puck in the forehead ni the first, needing some attention. Shots in the first were 8-6 Pittsburgh. The Jets tied the game early in the second with Olli Jokinen scoring his 17th, assists to Blake Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien. For Wheeler it was his 65th point of the season, a new single-season high for him. The Jets had a great chance to take the lead on a power play, but chances by Byfuglien and Andrew Ladd went for not as both shots missed the net. The Jets did tie it on a great play by Adam Pardy. He worked his way around two Pens, got the puck to Matt Halischuk who found Zach Redmond in the high slot for his first of the year. Late in the period the Jets got caught on a long shift, had a couple of chances to clear the zone but did not, resulting in Craig Adams tying the game with 1:13 left. Shots in the second were 6-6. With Mark Stuart off on a very questionable hooking call, the Pens took the lead on a Paul Martin goal, Crosby with his 102nd point of the season on the play. Crosby then went off on an interference call, and the Pens caught a break. Tanner Glass cleared the puck over the glass that would have given the Jets a lengthy two-man advantage, but after a long discussion the officials ruled it was deflected. Replays showed otherwise. Brian Gibbons made it 4-2 at 16:24 and that was the final. The Jets were outshot 7-3 in the third, and 21-15 over the game. Brian Little had his seven-game point streak come to an end, Jacob Trouba had three shots on goal to lead the team, and also led the team in ice time at 23:23. Jokinen won 9 of 12 face-offs. Byfuglien and Anthony Peluso each had six hits. Paul Maurice had another stat in his post-game news conference. “We missed the net 18 times, more than we had on net. Thats the difference.” The Jets also had another 12 blocked. Asked about the Stuart penalty in the third, “Weve made improvements with our sticks. Not sure if that one was a penalty. Sometimes you need to be higher up on the food chain.,” Maurice said. On the game, “I would like us to execute better and liked to see that push on a 2-2 game.” Jets are in Toronto Saturday (TSN 1290), before returning home to play Minnesota Monday and Boston Thursday (Both TSN Jets and TSN 1290), then close out the season in Calgary Friday (TSN Jets, TSN 1290).

I think weve got a good shot if we play our best at the Vanier so its really exciting.It was a career performance for Mackie, who had four sacks all season in 2013 and just two in 2014.The OUA champion Marauders will play the Montreal Carabins in the Vanier Cup on Nov. 29 in Montreal. The Carabins slipped by the Manitoba Bisons 29-26 in the Uteck Bowl earlier Saturday.Moore rushed for 146 yards and a touchdown to lead McMasters offence after fellow running back Chris Pezzetta re-injured his surgically repaired left knee.Todays game showed our heart. Our heart and our perseverance, said Moore. We had to persevere throughout the whole thing. Its a national semifinal and both teams are going to be good. Its not going to be a blowout at this level.Thank God we came out with the win.Pezzetta ran the ball on McMasters first offensive play of the game, gaining three yards. He stayed on the ground after being tackled, clutching his knee. Although he walked off the field under his own power, Pezzetta did not return to the game.He will make the trip (to Montreal) as the heart and soul of this football team, said head coach Stefan Ptaszek. Whether he will play or not... its very unlikely.Ptaszek said he had no update on Pezzettas injury, except that it would require an MRI to properly diagnose.Pezzetta tore his ACL in 2012 and 2013, with the Marauders easing him back into the lineup for the 2014 season. His best games of the season came in the playoffs where he rushed for 143 and 144 yards.He should be so proud of himself, to come back from what he came back from and to do what he did, said Ptaszek. He knows better than any of us how fragile this game of football can be. He might be in a place where hes been too often in the last three years.QB Marshall Ferguson completed 18-of-32 pass attempts for 154 yards and an interception for McMaster.Leyh completed 15-of-33 pass attempts for 186 yards with one TD and one interception for Mount Allison, the AUS champions.dddddddddddd The Mounties were the only undefeated team in the CIS playoffs until the Mitchell Bowl.McMaster returns to the Vanier Cup for the third time in four years, having beat Laval 41-38 in 2011 and losing to Laval 37-14 in 2012.We know the Quebec teams are great and its in their own province, its in their own barn, said Mackie.
