Wheeler, Perron Shine in Matinee
(2/25/12) Blake Wheeler is simply playing the best hockey of his still relatively young career. The Winnipeg Jets' leading point getter was busy doing all of the goal scoring for the Jets in their 3-2 defeat at the hands of the St. Louis Blues. Wheeler scored twice in regulation, and once in the shoot-out. In case you aren't aware of Wheeler's current up-tick, consider the fact that he has 3 goals and 9 assists in his last five games!
Not to be out done, David Perron kept his current hot streak going as well, with a regulation goal and a shoot-out goal. After going pointless in 2 straight, Perron has now collected points in 2 straight. He remains red hot; in his last 11 games, Perron has 8 goals and 4 assists.
