Forward Morgan Barron was the only one to get the puck past the goal line. In the first period, he deflected a shot past goalkeeper Kaapo Kahkonen. See the purpose above.

Despite the loss, the Sharks' masked man performed very well in Manitoba. The 27-year-old Finn stopped 39 pucks.

The Jets return to action on Saturday with a matchup against the Canucks in Vancouver. The Sharks, for their part, will visit the Flames in Calgary on Thursday.
