Eric Comrie, Winnipeg Jets shutout Philadelphia Flyers 4-0



Eric Comrie made 34 saves to record his first career shutout in the Winnipeg Jets' 4-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday.


The 26-year-old native of Edmonton was playing in his 27th NHL game, and making his 15th start for Winnipeg this season.


Kyle Connor scored into an empty net and added a pair of assists to set a new team record for points in a season.


He has 92 points, one more than captain Blake Wheeler's point total since the Atlanta Thrashers moved to Winnipeg and became the Jets in 2011.


Wheeler had 91 points in two seasons (2017-18, 2018-19).


Nikolaj Ehlers and Wheeler each had a goal and an assist.


Pierre-Luc Dubois also scored his career-high 28th goal of the season for the Jets (37-32-11).


It was the sixth time the Flyers (25-45-11) have been shut out this season.


Playing in only his fifth NHL game, and second straight, Philadelphia rookie netminder Felix Sandstrom stopped 23 of the 26 shots he faced.
