Andrew Ladd scored 8 seconds into the game, tying a franchise record, and finished with two goals and an assist to lead the Winnipeg Jets over the New Jersey Devils 3-1 on Thursday night.

Blake Wheeler added an empty-net goal for the Jets, who have won three straight and five of six.

Andrei Loktionov had the lone goal for the slumping Devils, who have one win in their last six games after a fast start.

Ladd went around the defense to pick up a bouncing puck and put a backhand past Devils goalie Johan Hedberg just 8 seconds after the opening faceoff.

The Jets' captain continued his strong start by adding his 12th goal of the season to break a 1-all tie with 8 minutes remaining.
