Jets extend lead in Central with 3-2 win over Kings

LOS ANGELES (AP) Winnipeg is tied for the most goals scored in March, but the Jets are also proving that they are just as tough in close games.

The Jets won their third straight one-goal game, edging the Los Angeles Kings 3-2 on Monday night. The win gives them 90 points and a three-point lead over Nashville atop the Central Division with less than three weeks to go in the regular season.

"It's an important win," said defenseman Tyler Myers, who scored the game-winning goal. "I feel like this time of the year games start tightening up and scores get lower. You can tell it is starting to get into that playoff-hockey mode. It's a good type style of play we want to get used to in April and the postseason."
