WINNIPEG - Once again, the Winnipeg Jets had their mettle tested.

And once again, the Jets found another way to respond instead of folding.

Facing waves of adversity is something every team in the NHL is going to encounter on a regular basis but recently, the Jets have been responding with much more vigour, not to mention composure.

The latest example saw the Jets blow a 4-1 lead before Dustin Byfuglien took a pass in the neutral zone from Andrew Ladd and cut to the middle before rifling his shot past Jonathan Bernier at 2:44 of the extra session.

"You don't like to see a team creep back into the game like they did and we can definitely clean up some of that, but overall we stayed positive and stayed with it," said Jets centre Bryan Little, who had a goal and an assist. "It took longer than 60 minutes, but we got the job done. We stayed level-headed and didn't get frustrated."
