Recap

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Johnny Gaudreau supplied the offense and heaped praise on netminder David Rittich.

Gaudreau had a hat trick as the Calgary Flames ended a three-game winless streak with a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.

Mark Jankowski had a short-handed, third-period goal for Calgary. Sean Monahan contributed three assists and Elias Lindholm added a pair.

Rittich made 35 saves.

"I think Ritter, Dave Rittich, played out of his mind tonight," Gaudreau said.

"He made some big saves and kept us in that game. It could have easily been 2-2, 3-3 there, going late into the third. He played unbelievable tonight and got us that win."

Adam Lowry scored for the Jets, who had won their previous two games and had a four-game win streak at home halted.

Gaudreau's first goal was a redirection by Jets forward Patrik Laine, who stuck out his stick to block Gaudreau's pass attempt to Lindholm, but the puck went by goalie Connor Hellebuyck. His third goal was into an empty net.

Hellebuyck stopped 24 shots for Winnipeg.

The Jets remained first the Western Conference, one point ahead of Calgary.

Jets forward Bryan Little was the victim of a couple of Rittich's solid saves.

"We had some really good chances and (Rittich) was standing on his head in there," Little said. "He was making some big saves at important times of the game, too. You're going to have those nights."

Winnipeg captain Blake Wheeler said the Jets weren't sharp.

"We're not going to fool ourselves and pretend we played a great game and their goalie stole it," Wheeler said. "But he played well. They capitalized on their looks and we didn't. But we've got another level."

Winnipeg outshot Calgary 14-7 in the scoreless opening period, with both teams a bit sloppy after their holiday breaks. Rittich made a couple of key saves as the Flames went 0 for 2 on the power play and the Jets 0 for 1 in the first 20 minutes.

Gaudreau scored his 17th goal of the season at 1:04 of the second with Laine's accidental redirection.

A few minutes later, Jets fans had a bit of a scare when Hellebuyck bent over to smother a puck with his glove at the side of the crease. Noah Hanifin caught the goalie in the head with a knee, knocking off his mask. Hellebuyck appeared shaken, but after a trainer came out to look at him, he remained in the game.

Lowry tied it with 2:07 left in the period after he intercepted a pass by Alan Quine. But 54 seconds later, Gaudreau took a pass from Lindholm and put a backhand shot past a sprawled Hellebuyck.

Winnipeg's shots on goal were 25-20 after the second period.

The third period included a 2-on-1 with Little and defenseman Dustin Byfuglien, but Little's shot hit Rittich's body as he slid over to make the save. Laine then rang a high shot off the iron and Little fired the puck, and Rittich made another save.

Jankowski's fifth of the season made it 3-1 at 15:39, and Gaudreau notched an empty-netter with 2:06 remaining. He left the ice right after that following a slash by Byfuglien earlier in the play.

NOTES: Calgary captain Mark Giordano, who had assist on the last goal, was playing in his 791st NHL game, tying him with Theo Fleury for fourth-most games with the Flames.
