Randy Carlyle’s perfect Manitoba homecoming featured a win in Winnipeg and a Phil Kessel goal.

Life doesn’t get any better for the Leafs coach. At least not on this particular evening.

Thanks to goals by Matt Frattin and Kessel just 54 seconds apart late in the game, Carlyle’s Maple Leafs posted a 3-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets Thursday night at the MTS Centre.
