Scheifele, Jets aim to refuel vs. Sabres

The Winnipeg Jets hold a wild-card spot and a berth in the postseason in the Western Conference's current standings, but there is very little margin of error for coach Paul Maurice's club.

The Jets will make their third stop during a four-game road trip on Sunday afternoon when they visit the Buffalo Sabres in the teams' first of two meetings this season.

Maurice's group opened the trip in Ottawa Thursday night, and they turned to forward Mark Scheifele to help lift them into a playoff spot. Winnipeg leapfrogged the Calgary Flames and Arizona Coyotes in the standings behind Scheifele's third career hat trick -- all on the power play -- in a 5-1 win over the Senators.
