WINNIPEG -- Al Montoya made his case for more time in the Winnipeg net after watching the Jets first five games from the bench. C.C. Sabathia Jersey . The Jets backup goaltender had 24 saves for a shutout as Winnipeg beat the New Jersey Devils 3-0 on Sunday. Montoya said he was only as good as his teams willingness to play defence. "The team was communicating with me and really letting me see the puck," said Montoya. "Its forwards coming back to help out the (defencemen), (defencemen) coming back to help out the goalie. Selflessness out there -- thats what we want our identity to be." Evander Kane scored twice and Andrew Ladd added a goal in the final minute for the Jets as they snapped a three-game losing streak to get back to .500. The Devils are now winless in six games to open the season. Montoya was rarely under siege, but controlled rebounds well and showed poise handling the puck. Montoya started only five games in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season as No. 1 netminder Ondrej Pavelec was near the top of the league in games played and shots faced. "Its not an easy game to play when you watch your team play five and youre under the gun," said Jets coach Claude Noel. "(There was) a lot of pressure on Al. I thought he handled it superbly." Kane opened the scoring for Winnipeg (3-3-0) early in the second period when he carried the puck the length of the ice and banked it off the leg of Devils defenceman Andy Greene and past goalie Cory Schneider. Schneider said he got a piece of the puck with his stick, but couldnt react quickly enough after it bounced off Greene. "They got the bounce to get the winning goal, and we didnt," Schneider said. "Weve just got to find a way. I was good tonight, but he just made that one extra save." The game winner came after an unsuccessful two-man advantage for New Jersey (0-3-3) that head coach Pete DeBoer saw as the games key moment. "If we score I think its a different game," DeBoer said. "Weve got to generate something there. We didnt work hard enough to create enough offensive opportunities." Montoyas best save came in the second period, when he stopped Patrik Elias point blank after a turnover in the neutral zone. The backup goalie rarely had to deal with traffic in his crease as the Jets defended their territory and frustrated the Devils. Kane, who later added an empty-net goal with 57 seconds remaining for his third of the season, thought the Jets found success by limiting the Devils chances. "When you play in the other teams zone, youre going to get less shots against," Kane said. "That was a key part -- pressuring them and not giving them time and space to attack us and abuse us in our own end." Kane played alongside Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler on the Jets top line for the first time this season as Noel decided to juggle his roster after three straight poor showings. "A lot of good play from a lot of players tonight," Noel said, adding that the reconfigured lineup would likely be used again when the Jets continue their six-game homestand on Tuesday night against Montreal. Schneider, who made 32 saves, wasnt challenged often. His best stop came on a short-handed breakaway by Kane in the third period to keep his team within a goal. Neither team came close to scoring in a low-energy first period that had the MTS Centre quieter than usual. Each side had one power play, but failed to register a shot on goal. The Devils will try again for their first win when they wrap up their five-game road trip in Ottawa on Thursday night. Schneider said getting the first win doesnt get any easier the longer it takes. "Were playing well in stretches," he said, "but our consistency isnt quite there yet." Notes: Schneider, who spent three seasons with the AHLs Manitoba Moose, was on MTS Centre ice for the first time as an NHL goalie. The crowd gave him a warm ovation during a first-period stoppage, before launching into a taunting chant of "Co-rey". a The Jets kept their opponent off the scoreboard in the opening period for the first time this season. a The Devils went 0 for 6 on the power play, and are now 1 for 16 to start the season with the extra attacker.

Medlen allowed four hits over 7 1-3 scoreless innings to win his fourth straight start, leading the Braves to a 2-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night. The first-place Braves increased their lead over second-place Washington to 11 games. Any combination of four Braves wins or Nationals losses will give Atlanta its first division title since 2005. Medlen (14-12) has enjoyed a strong resurgence after a slow start. He went 1-6 over the first two months of the season but is 8-2 in his last 10 games. In 2012, Medlen moved into the rotation on July 31 and then was 9-0 with a 0.97 ERA in 12 starts. "Whether Im a second-half guy or whatever it is, I just feel like Ive clicked," Medlen said. The Braves led 2-0 before Chase Headley hit a ninth-inning homer off closer Craig Kimbrel, who then pitched around a two-out walk to Ronny Cedeno for his career-best 47th save -- the most in the majors. Freddie Freeman had three hits, including a sixth-inning homer off Robbie Erlin (2-3), to help the Braves earn their first win of the season over the Padres. San Diego won the first four games of the season series. Medlens surge has been especially important after staff leader Tim Hudson broke his right ankle on July 25 and was lost for the season. Medlen, Mike Minor and Julio Teheran have taken over atop the rotation. Is Medlen, the staff leader in wins, the Braves emerging ace? "I think there are a lot of guys you could say that about," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "I think his last four starts have been really, really good. Maybe more than that." Medlen looked like an ace to Padres manager Bud Black. "Hes their guy," Black said. "Hes won 14 games. Obviously, theyre on their way to the playoffs. I suspect that hell be their first-game pitcher." Medlen, who had five strikeouts and two walks, was removed after allowing a bloop single to Will Venable with one out in the eighth. David Carpenter recorded the final two outs of the inning. Kimbrel overcaame Headleys leadoff homer in the ninth. David Robertson Jersey. After striking out Kyle Blanks and Tommy Medica, Kimbrel walked Cedeno. After pinch-runner Reymond Fuentes stole second base, Nick Hundley grounded out to end the game. "We were one base hit from tying that game," Black said. "We were right there with them." Erlin allowed two runs on eight hits and one walk in six innings. The Braves took a 1-0 lead in the fourth when Justin Upton led off with a single and scored on a two-out single to left field by Chris Johnson, who had two hits. The Braves were denied a chance to extend their lead in the fifth when Elliot Johnson hit a two-out single and stole second. Upton singled to right field and Johnson, trying to score from second, was thrown out on right fielder Chris Denorfias one-hop throw to the plate. The Braves left the bases loaded in the seventh. Right-hander Dale Thayer, the Padres third pitcher of the inning, struck out Evan Gattis to end the threat after Brad Boxberger and Tommy Layne combined to walk three batters. San Diegos problems with walks continued in the eighth. With two outs, Andrelton Simmons doubled off Brad Brach, who then walked B.J. Upton and pinch-hitter Joey Terdoslavich. Brach struck out Elliot Johnson to end the inning. There was a brief delay in the fifth inning when Medlen fouled a ball that hit home plate umpire Tom Hallion under his mask. The ball skimmed off catcher Nick Hundleys helmet before hitting Hallion, who remained in the game after being checked by Braves assistant trainer Jim Lovell. Venable made a diving catch of Elliot Johnsons sinking liner in left-centre in the first inning. NOTES: Gonzalez said Braves OF Jason Heyward, who took batting practice for the second straight day, could be sent to the Braves Instructional League in Florida next week. Heywards right jaw was fractured when hit by a pitch from the Mets Jonathon Niese on Aug. 21. ... B.J. Upton drew three walks. ... Braves RHP Brandon Beachy (inflammation right elbow) will begin light throwing on Monday or Tuesday. ... Teheran will try for his 13th win against Padres RHP Burch Smith on Sunday.
