NEW YORK — Brian Little scored twice and Michael Hutchinson made 40 saves to lead the Winnipeg Jets to a 4-1 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

Nikolaj Ehlers and Mark Stuart each added a goal for Winnipeg, which improved to 3-1-0 in the early season. The victory ended a four-game road trip to begin the season for the Jets.

Despite being outshot 20-8 in the period, the Jets went into the second intermission with a 2-1 lead thanks to Little’s short-handed goal at 18:49. Little, whose 52 points were third most on the Jets last season, one-timed a feed from Jacob Trouba.

His power play goal at 10:35 of the third period sealed the game for the Jets, who handed New York its first loss of the season.

Henrik Lundqvist made 24 saves.
