Jets rally to beat Golden Knights 4-3 in OT on Connor’s goal

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Kyle Connor had another big night in Vegas.

The 22-year-old left wing scored 3:22 into overtime to give the Winnipeg Jets a 4-3 comeback victory over the Golden Knights on Saturday.

Connor leads the Jets in scoring against Vegas with 12 points in seven career games. It was his seventh goal versus the Golden Knights, who blew a two-goal lead in the third period for the second time in three nights, including a 5-4 loss to Montreal in overtime Thursday.

The Jets, meanwhile, won both games of a back-to-back set – they withstood 53 shots by San Jose during a 3-2 victory Friday.

”We came out in the third knowing we had something to prove,” said Connor, who also had two assists. ”I think it was an incredible comeback and a testament to our team, that kind of character.”
