(SportsNetwork.com) - The Winnipeg Jets escaped with a victory in their season opener despite some struggles on the defensive side of things. Head coach Claude Noel knows his team will need a better effort on Friday night in the Jets home opener against the Los Angeles Kings. Winnipeg kicked off its season in Edmonton on Tuesday and trailed by two goals midway through the second period before scoring three straight to notch a 5-4 win over the Oilers. Michael Frolik, acquired this past offseason from the Chicago Blackhawks, got the rally started with 3:42 to play in the second period with his first goal. Rookie defenseman Jacob Trouba added his first NHL tally in the third frame and Frolik put home the game-winner with 5:02 to play. Mark Scheifele and Bryan Little added goals, Dustin Byfuglien had three assists and Ondrej Pavelec shook off a slow start in Winnipegs Western Conference debut. The Jets moved to the Central Division following realignment this offseason. Pavelec allowed four goals on 24 shots through the first two periods, but turned aside all 14 shots sent his way in the third. "The game was pretty good, kind of up-and-down. I think we battled hard, especially at the end. It was a good finish by us and a good turnaround. Guys battled hard at the end and we came away with the win," Frolik said. It was a rare win for the Jets when giving up at least four goals. They were 2-16-0 in 18 games last season when yielding at least four scores. Set to play two straight and eight of the next nine at home, Noel knows his club will have to improve in tonights game against a talented team like the Kings. "I dont think you can go into too many nights playing the way we played in Edmonton and anticipating a win," Noel said on Thursday. "You dont win the special teams game. You go into the third period down 4-3. In the National Hockey League, those are recipes for not having success. We know we dodged a bullet and we know we have a lot of work to do to get better." The Jets may have a slight edge given that the Kings were in action last night, recording a 3-2 shootout victory in Minnesota. Jeff Carter tied the game late in the third period and both he and Anze Kopitar scored in the shootout against Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom. Drew Doughty also scored in regulation for the Kings and Jonathan Quick had 27 saves. He then stopped both Minnesota skaters in the shootout, including a poke check on Mikko Koivus try. "He played good," Kings head coach Darryl Sutter said of Quick. "It was good to see him in the shootout because I think the last time we were here we lost in a shootout." Quick also got some help late in regulation to force overtime. He found himself out of position and Minnesotas Matt Cooke sent a shot on net looking to notch the go-ahead goal, but forward Trevor Lewis, minus a stick, made a diving stop to keep the game tied. "I tried to make myself kind of big, and it hit me. I think it was a pretty good butterfly there," said Lewis. "Everyone kind of gave me a high five, but I was kind of saying I looked like a roller hockey goalie out there, so it was good." The Kings will play their home opener on Monday versus the New York Rangers, but first will try to secure just their second victory over the Jets franchise in the last six meetings. Los Angeles visited Winnipeg on Dec. 29, 2011 for the first time since the Jets relocated from Atlanta and lost a 1-0 overtime decision. The Jets Evander Kane scored the lone goal to give his club its fourth straight home victory over the Kings. L.A. has not picked up a road victory over the Jets franchise since a 4-0 triumph in Atlanta on Oct. 29, 2002. In a draft day surprise, the Vancouver Canucks relieved their goaltending logjam in a surprising manner. Numbers Game looks at the deal sending Cory Schneider to New Jersey. The Devils Get: G Cory Schneider. Schneider, 27, has a save percentage of .931 over the last three seasons, best among goaltenders with at least 75 games and was expected to be the Vancouver Canucks goaltender of the future, but their inability to move out Roberto Luongo and his sizeable contract, left a Schneider deal as the only viable solution to Vancouvers financial and goaltending concerns. However, for a variety of reasons, Schneider is a 27-year-old that has yet to play even 35 games in an NHL season and if hes going to be a top-tier starting goaltender, its about time to take on a starters workload and maintain the high level of play hes established in his limited NHL playing time. In New Jersey, the Devils have Martin Brodeur, who has been the backbone of the franchise for nearly two decades, but Brodeur has a .905 save percentage over the last three seasons, which ranks 29th out of 31 goaltenders to have played at least 100 games, and hes 41-years-old, so its entirely understandable that the Devils are looking to upgrade. The question is how will the Devils allocate playing time next season? Its the final year of Brodeurs contract and, based on recent play, Schneider has to be the starter. If Schneider gets 55-60 games next year, that would leave Brodeur with his fewest games played since 1991-1992 (though 29 games in a lockout-shortened 2013 season is his lowest since too). Additionally, veteran Johan Hedberg has another year left on his contract, at a $1.4-million cap hit, and he struggled in 2012-2013 (posting an .883 save percentage), but Hedberg could be moved to a team seeking a veteran backup goaltender though, at that price, the Devils may need to eat some of the salary in order to make Hedberg a more palatable option. Goaltending was such a problem last season for New Jersey, a team that had some of the best possession numbers but also the 28th-ranked save percentage in the league, so its possible that Schneider could solve tthat issue.dddddddddddd New Jersey currently has tons of cap room, but is a team with financial concerns and some high-profile pending free agents, including Patrik Elias and David Clarkson. If they depart, that could affect those strong possession stats going forward. Schneider is under contract for a couple more seasons, at a cap hit of $4.0-million, leaving New Jersey with $9.9-million tied in to three goalies. That may just be a short-term issue, since the Devils dont appear to be a cap team for next season and both Brodeur and Hedberg are heading into the final year of their respective contracts. So long as Schneider makes it as a bona fide starting goaltender, the Devils have to be very happy with this deal. The uncertainty of a ninth overall pick (from 1994-2008, six of 15 ninth picks would be considered fringe NHLers or worse) makes the cost quite reasonable for an established NHLer who still has a chance to be a star. The Canucks Get: The ninth overall pick (used to take C Bo Horvat). Horvat is a highly-regarded two-way player, who scored 33 goals and 61 points in 67 regular season games for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, adding 16 goals and 23 points in 21 playoff games. Hes a two-way centre who had some offensive upside and gives the Canucks some much-needed forward talent in the organization. At the same time, Horvat isnt necessarily providing immediate help. He could use time to improve his skating and a year of strong production in the OHL may give him a better chance to make an impact when he does arrive in the NHL. Provided he reconciles himself to the idea of returning to Vancouver, Roberto Luongo should be back in line for 60-plus starts next season. In 20 games last season, Luongo had a .907 save percentage, his lowest since .904 in 1999-2000, his rookie season. With a .919 save percentage in 747 career games, however, Luongo should be expected to play well as a starter for at least a few more seasons.
