Scheifele stays hot on road for Jets in Game 4 OT win against Blues


Scheifele has scored 12 goals in his past nine postseason road games, including 11 in the 2018 playoffs, an NHL single-year record.


Scheifele, Connor and Jets captain Blake Wheeler were reunited as a line late in the regular season.


On a rush, Connor sent the lead pass across from the right wing that Scheifele re-directed under the crossbar to tie the game in the third period.


For the overtime winner, Scheifele took a shot off the rush before tapping his own rebound to Connor, who was near the crease and staring at an open net.


"When he's winning those battles and cutting back and eluding defenders in the offensive zone, it makes our line so tough," Wheeler said.


ST. LOUIS -- Mark Scheifele has turned into a road warrior for the Winnipeg Jets in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
