The Winnipeg Jets finally found a way to sink the San Jose Sharks.
After losing two games at San Jose in October, the Jets avoided a season series sweep with a 4-1 win at Winnipeg on Thursday night.
Winnipeg (7-3-3, 3rd Central Division) snapped a two-game losing streak with the victory.
The Sharks scored first just over six minutes into the game when Andrew Cogliano scored his second of the season. But that would be the only time the Sharks would beat Connor Hellebuyck.
Later in the opening draw, Kyle Connor crashed the net to bury a rebound. Connor now has 10 goals in the first 13 games of the season, which has not been done by a Jets player since Igor Korolev during the 1995-96 season.
The Jets took the lead with less than six minutes to go in the second period when Nate Schmidt fired a shot that passed Sharks goalkeeper James Reimer for his first goal as a Jet.
With 44 seconds left in the period, Jansen Harkins took advantage of a pass from Adam Lowry for his second goal of the season.
Pierre-Luc Dubois completed the scoring with an empty net at the end of the third for his eighth of the year.
Dubois had a multi-point night (1 W, 1 A) as did Andrew Copp (2 A), who now has 14 points from 13 games this season.

Hellebuyck made 27 saves in the victory while Reimer, the Morweena, Man. Product, stopped 31 shots.
Paul Stastny missed his second game in a row due to injury.
Winnipeg moved to 3-1-1 in its seven-game home run, the best season of the season.
Next up for the Jets is a date with the sizzling Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night (6pm, 680 CJOB).
Since the Jets defeated the Kings in Los Angeles on October 28, the Kings have notched up seven straight victories.
