NEWARK, N.J. - It was all about slump busting for the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night.

Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane each snapped lengthy goal-scoring droughts and Devin Setoguchi provided the insurance marker with 27.1 seconds remaining as the Winnipeg Jets said so long to a four-game losing skid with a 3-11triumph over the New Jersey Devils before an announced crowd of 12,253 at the Prudential Center.

The Jets improved to 11-11-4 and are back in action Wednesday night against the New York Islanders as they continue a season-long six-game road trip.

Scheifele took a pass from Michael Frolik before unleashing a wicked wrister to the glove side of Martin Brodeur in the first period and Evanander Kane snapped a quick shot home in the second period to provide the scoring for the Jets.

Scheifele had gone 24 games since denting the twine, while Kane went 11 games without a goal and now has seven, which leaves him second on the team to Bryan Little (12).
