Winnipeg coach Claude Noel mixed up his line combinations in Tuesday's victory in Washington, which led to some notable players getting on the scoresheet for the first time this young season.

Blake Wheeler, who played with Olli Jokinen and Evander Kane, recorded his first points of the season with a goal and an assist in the match. He scored what would be the game-winning goal at the 14:32 mark of the second period and picked up a power-play assist on a first-period tally by Kane for his first marker of the year.
