Flames defeat Jets 4-0 to win NHL qualifying series three games to one

EDMONTON - The Calgary Flames overwhelmed the injury-addled Winnipeg Jets, beating them 4-0 Thursday to knock them out of the NHL's post-season.

 

Dillon Dube, Sean Monahan, Sam Bennett and Rasmus Andersson scored for the Flames while Cam Talbot made 31 saves for the shutout at Rogers Place.

 

Calgary won the best-of-five qualifying series 3-1.

 

Connor Hellebuyck stopped 30-of-32 shots in net for Winnipeg.

 

It was a series the Jets were chasing from the get-go, when they lost elite scorers Patrik Laine and Mark Scheifele to injury in Game 1, and two other top point-getters Blake Wheeler and Kyle Connor failed to step up to fill the void.

 

Wheeler and Connor (the regular season team leader with 38 goals and 73 points) combined for just two assists in four games.
