Monday's NHL highlights

Jets cool off Rangers rookie

– Olli Jokinen’s third-period outburst for the Winnipeg Jets put any talk of a New York Rangers goalie controversy to rest.

Not that there was much of one to begin with.

Jokinen scored the go-ahead and insurance goals against rookie Cam Talbot and pushed the Jets to a 5-2 victory over New York on Monday night.

By the time Blake Wheeler put a puck into an empty net in the final minute, Talbot was on the bench mulling his second NHL loss.

“I thought I felt all right, still not where I wanted to be,” said Talbot, who made 25 saves in his second consecutive start over Henrik Lundqvist. “Four goals is not going to cut it. I can’t expect the guys to go and score five goals for me every night.”

Up until this one, three was plenty for Talbot to win. He already has two shutouts to his credit and he hadn’t allowed more than two goals in his first seven starts — a Rangers record.

HIGHLIGHTS

 

• KINGS EDGE BLUES: Rookie Tyler Toffoli scored two goals, Jarret Stoll also tallied and Ben Scrivens made 25 saves for the host Kings in a 3-2 victory over the Blues. Scrivens was heading toward his fourth shutout of the season when Kevin Shattenkirk and Vladimir Tarasenko scored in the final 5:54.

• VARLAMOV CAN STAY FREE: Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov can remain free on bond while facing a domestic violence charge involving his girlfriend, a Denver judge said. Varlamov appeared in court for a brief hearing as the judge formally advised him that he faces a misdemeanor charge of third-degree assault. He is scheduled to enter a plea at his next hearing on Jan. 22. Varlamov could face a sentence ranging from probation to two years in jail if convicted of the assault charge.
