Nikolaj Ehlers scores twice to lift Jets over Flames 3-2 in NHL pre-season action

WINNIPEG - Nikolaj Ehlers scored two goals, including the game-winner to lead the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday in a pre-season NHL game at the Canada Life Centre.

Josh Morrissey opened scoring for Winnipeg (2-21) in the first period and Connor Hellebuyck made 16 saves in net for the win.

Andrew Mangiapane and Glenn Gawdin both scored in the second period for Calgary (2-4-1).

Goaltender Dan Vladar stopped 37 shots for the Flames.

Although it looked like Calgary had tied it with Vladar pulled from the net, it was called off due to a high stick after a video review.

Ehlers snapped a 2-2 tie on a power play at 9:14 of the third period.
