Winnipeg Jets forward Blake Wheeler was decked by Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin in a previous meeting this season, so the Jets captain got his revenge.
That revenge was served with a few right-handed jabs in a one-sided fight Wednesday night at MTS Centre. Wheeler landed several blows before taking Malkin to the ice.
Wheeler is having a pretty good season with 56 points (20 goals, 36 assists) in 67 games. Unfortunately for the Jets, it’s probably not going to matter because Winnipeg is unlikely to make the Stanley Cup playoffs.
