Winnipeg, MB (Sports Network) - Blake Wheeler had two goals and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Toronto Maple Leafs, 5-2, on Tuesday.

Nik Antropov added a goal and two assists for the Jets, who have won three of four. Kyle Wellwood had a goal and an assist, while Evander Kane also lit the lamp.

Ondrej Pavelec made 24 saves for Winnipeg, which avenged a 3-2 loss to Toronto on Feb. 7.

"I thought we had a lot of good games tonight from a lot of players. I thought guys played hard and weren't going to be denied," Jets head coach Claude Noel said.

Phil Kessel scored a pair of goals for the Maple Leafs, who have lost three in a row.

"We'll regroup and reset our group and go forward," Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle said.

James Reimer stopped 24-of-28 shots before being pulled in the third period. Ben Scrivens made five saves in relief.

The Jets drew first blood at the 6:06 mark of the first period. While on the power play, Antropov deflected Dustin Byfuglien's shot from the point.

Winnipeg scored the next four goals to take a comfortable lead. First, Wheeler put home a rebound off Bryan Little's shot at the 1:03 mark.

Wellwood finished off a nice give-and-go play Byfuglien and Antropov at the 10:43 mark, then at 11:16 of the third period, Kane intercepted a pass in the neutral zone and went in on a breakaway and Reimer's exit followed.

Wheeler's second goal of the night came 1:37 later, as he took a cross- ice pass from Eric Tangradi and beat Scrivens to make it 5-1.
