NEW YORK (AP) - Olli Jokinen broke a tie with 7:18 left in the third period and then netted an insurance goal moments later to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers and rookie goalie Cam Talbot on Monday night.

Jokinen, a former Rangers player, also assisted on Devin Setoguchi's tying goal in the second period.

John Albert also scored in his NHL debut and Blake Wheeler added an empty-net goal in the final minute for Winnipeg, which got 35 saves from Ondrej Pavelec in the fourth-game of the Jets' season-high, six-game road trip (3-1).

Mats Zuccarello and Ryan Callahan had goals for New York. Talbot made 25 saves.
