“At the start I felt a little bit rusty,” Brossoit said.“First period — a little bit sloppy in my eyes, but second period, third period, I definitely settled in and felt good.”Connor, Brandon Tanev, Blake Wheeler, and Bryan Little all scored for Winnipeg. And the Jets managed to hold off a strong push from the Red Wings late in the game.“It was another one of those strange games kinda where there was a lot of momentum shifts,” Little said. “We let off the gas couple times in the second and they made a good push, and just one those games it was back and forth, and your lead never felt safe.”“I thought it was kind of a gutsy performance,” Josh Morrissey said.“Probably not one for the entire 60 minutes that you would use as your template at the start of the year.”Little’s goal gave him 500 career points.“It went by fast,” Little said. “Trying to think of the years of my career. Up to this point, it feels like it flew by, so hopefully, there’s many more to come.”Luke Glendening and Dennis Cholowski both scored for Detroit. St. Andrews’ Darren Helm had one assist in the loss.Jonathan Bernier made 23 stops for Detroit.WATCH: Winnipeg Jets Post Game Reaction
