The Winnipeg Jets dominated Game 5 for the first two periods at home against the St. Louis Blues until the third-period came around. St. Louis was trailing 2-1 Brayden Schenn scored the game-tying goal with 6:08 remaining in regulation.
It wasn’t ruled a goal at first on the ice because it looked like the net completely dislodged. However, the net stayed in its area long enough for it to count before it completely dislodged. Even if the net didn’t move at all, it was going to be a goal anyways.
With 15 seconds remaining in regulation, Jaden Schwartz scored on a deflection and a turnover forced in the zone and it lifted the Blues to a 3-2 win in Game 5 over Winnipeg. St. Louis leads the series 3-2.
Adam Tanev scored 12 seconds into the game for Winnipeg. Kevin Hayes scored later in the first with 6:25 remaining in the first-period.
There were no goals scored in the second-period. Ryan O’Reilly scored a power-play goal 1:29 into the third-period for the St. Louis Blues.
Jordan Binnington made 29 saves for St. Louis.
Connor Hellebuyck made 26 saves for Winnipeg.
