Winnipeg Jets win 4th straight, complete season sweep of visiting St. Louis Blues

Sean Monahan scored a goal and added an assist after missing a game because of an illness to help the Winnipeg Jets beat the St. Louis Blues 4-2 on Tuesday night and extend their win streak to four games.

Brenden Dillon, Kyle Connor and Alex Iafallo also scored for Winnipeg, which has won seven of its last eight games. Josh Morrissey and Nikolaj Ehlers each contributed two assists and Laurent Brossoit made 36 saves.

Pavel Buchnevich and Brandon Saad scored for the Blues, who are 2-4-0 in their past six games. St. Louis goalie Joel Hofer made his first start in his hometown and stopped 28 shots.

Monahan got the Jets on the board at 8:53. He has six goals in his past five games after registering no points in his first four games after being traded to Winnipeg from Montreal.

Dillon scored his career-high seventh goal of the season less than two minutes later through traffic.

Buchnevich cut into the lead 30 seconds later off a rebound for his 23rd, but Connor replied with his 24th at 15:33 to regain the two-goal advantage. Connor has scored in four straight games and extended his point streak to six games with five goals and six assists.

Saad used a bouncing puck to make the score 3-2 nine minutes into the second period, extending his point streak to four games.

Iafallo ended a 20-game goal drought at 10:13 of the third when he used a puck that bounced off the end boards and put it by Hofer.

Winnipeg has won all three games against the Blues this season.

The Jets return to action on Thursday, when they open a three-game road trip at Dallas.
