WINNIPEG -- It was a few days early but the Winnipeg Jets gave cheering fans a long-awaited present Friday night as they capped the resurgent Florida Panthers winning streak at five with a 5-2 home-ice win. Jacob Trouba, Toby Enstrom, Blake Wheeler, Evander Kane and Michael Frolik scored for the Jets (16-16-5), who hadnt won a home game since Nov. 15. Shawn Matthias and Nick Bjugstad scored for the tired-looking Panthers (14-18-5). Both goals were unassisted, and thanks to giveaways by the Jets deep in their own zone. With Florida playing their second game in two nights after beating Ottawa 4-2, Winnipeg came out fast and dominated the opening minutes against their former Southeast rivals. But it was the Panthers who scored first, as Dustin Byfugliens attempt to raise a clearing pass bounced off Matthias and he snapped one in at 7:45. The Jets had plenty of chances in the penalty-filled first. But the teams were even when Trouba tied it with his soft tip at 11:06. It looked like Florida goalie Jacob Markstrom kicked it into his net with his skate as he scrambled to block it. The Jets made it 2-1 on a five-on-three as Enstrom fired one from the slot at 15:24 and Wheeler finished off the five-on-four as he deflected Zach Bogosians shot past Markstrom just 33 seconds later. It was Bogosians first game since that last home-ice win Nov. 15. He was out with what is thought to have been a groin injury. Kane flipped in Froliks pass to make it 4-1 just 1:03 into the second as the pair grabbed just enough space for a two-on-one. But Bjugstad narrowed the gap with Floridas second goal at 5:55 of the second with his wrist shot when he intercepted Kanes cross-ice pass in front of the Winnipeg net. Frolik restored the three-goal lead at 17:53 when he snapped in Andrew Ladds rebound. Notes: The piper who opened the game got a round of applause for "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" for the Jets last game before the holiday. Jets Mark Scheifele extended his point streak to five games, the longest active streak among NHL rookies. With another two assists, Scheifele also has collected 12 points over the last 12 games, dating back to Nov. 23. . Both players have lower body injuries that will keep them out of the lineup until at least January 31, which is the first game they can be activated from IR.

Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011.KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs had their backs to the end zone in the third quarter on Sunday, and the Houston Texans had first-and-goal with an opportunity to take the lead. Three straight plays went nowhere and the Texans had to settle for a field goal. It was a virtuoso display by the NFLs stingiest defence, and a signature stand in a stellar second half. The Chiefs kept repelling the Houston offence the rest of the way, and the result was a 17-16 victory to extend their perfect start. "You know as well as I do you win with great defences. Thats how it rolls," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "You cant be successful like we are without a great defence." Nor can you be successful without a guy like Jamaal Charles, who ran for 86 yards and a touchdown, or quarterback Alex Smith, who also had a touchdown scamper. "It was a physical game," Charles said, "the kind of a game this team needs to go far." The game was still in doubt even after the Chiefs goal-line stand. They had to punt with 1:46 left, but the Texans had no timeouts. Case Keenum threw an incompletion on first down, and then was stripped by linebacker Tamba Hali on the ensuing play. Derrick Johnson recovered the ball for the Chiefs, and Smith simply kneeled on it from there to run time out. The result was a 7-0 start for Kansas City, trailing only the 9-0 mark put up by the 2003 team for the best in franchise history. In the Super Bowl era, 31 teams have started 7-0 and all qualified for the playoffs. Fifteen of those 31 clubs advanced to the Super Bowl and nine have won it. "Its confidence," said Hali, who was part of the Chiefs two-win team last season. "Guys believe in what were doing. They believe in one another, and that goes a long way." Keenum, making his first NFL start in place of the injured Matt Schaub, threw for 271 yards and a touchdown for the Texans. His performance was overshadowed by a pair of crushing injuries: Running back Arian Foster left in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and did not return, and linebacker Brian Cushing was carted off with a left knee injury in the second half. "It was very detrimental to us," said Texans coach Gary Kubiak, whose banged-up team is riding its first five-game skid since Nov.dddddddddddd. 6-Dec. 11, 2005. "When they can pin their ears back, theyre very, very difficult," Kubiak said. "They came and got us pretty good there late in the game." The Texans moved the ball well early on, taking the lead on Randy Bullocks 48-yard field goal. But the scoring drive proved costly when Foster left for the locker room, and then emerged a short while later in a grey sweatsuit. "Im going do everything I can to get healthy and come back and fight," he said afterward. The Chiefs took the lead later in the first quarter when Charles pounded into the end zone from a yard out to cap an 82-yard drive. But the Texans, behind Keenums unflappable play, retook the lead on a 29-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins. "He did a great job," Kubiak said of his young quarterback, who beat out T.J. Yates for the starting nod. "Hes got some things hes got to understand when they come after him. But he made some great football plays to get his team in position to win." Indeed, the Texans still led 10-7 midway through the second quarter. Smith proceeded to guide the Chiefs 97 yards in 15 plays, and his 5-yard draw gave the Chiefs the lead at halftime. Bullock tacked on two more field goals for Houston, and Ryan Succop hit one for the Chiefs, who came within inches of extending their 17-16 lead early in the fourth quarter. Tight end Anthony Fasano caught a pass at the goal line and was ruled down, and Reid was unsuccessfully in challenging that it should be a touchdown. Charles was stuffed on the next play, and Smiths pass to wide open Sean McGrath on fourth down was out of bounds. It turned out that the missed points didnt matter. The Chiefs defence made sure of that. Notes: The Chiefs had five sacks, giving them 36 on the season. ... Ben Tate had 50 yards rushing for Houston. ... The Texans did not commit a turnover until Keenum was stripped at the end. They had an AFC-leading 15 turnovers coming into the game. ... Smith had 231 yards passing. wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
