Vladislav Namestnikov, Nikolaj Ehlers and Cole Perfetti scored the visitors' first three goals. The Coyotes regained their momentum in the final third, but two goals from Mark Scheifele and another from Adam Lowry ultimately ended their hopes of a comeback.
Dylan Guenther and Nick Schmaltz provided the answer for the Arizona team.
With this win, the Manitoba organization is 8-0-2 in their last 10 games. She sits alone in first place in the NHL overall standings.
The Coyotes will look to return to victory on Tuesday against the Boston Bruins. The Jets, for their part, will challenge the Columbus Blue Jackets on the same day.
