CHICAGO — Mark Scheifele's hard slapshot beat Chicago goalie Robin Lehner just 47 seconds into overtime as the Winnipeg Jets came back to defeat the Blackhawks 3-2 Saturday night at United Center.

The Jets had trailed 2-1 until about 12 minutes into the third period when Andrew Copp evened the contest. Kyle Connor worked the puck to the front of the net, drew the attention two Blackhawks and dished to Copp, who promptly stuffed it behind Lehner with just 8:16 left in regulation time.
