    EDMONTON, Alberta -- Patrik Laine has scored a lot of big goals in his first NHL season, including a few game-winners. Brad Wing Jersey .His latest was anything but.Laine shot the puck into his own net midway through the third period, costing the Winnipeg Jets in a 3-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night.Edmontons Mark Letestu was credited with his second goal of the game when Laine fired the rebound of Letestus slap shot directly into his own wide-open cage.I think everybody saw what happened. Thats my comments, said the Finnish rookie, who has 17 goals in his first 32 NHL games. It was just a bad position for me. An unfortunate goal.Captain Blake Wheeler put an arm around Laine to console him when he returned to the bench.Hes 18 years old. He feels terrible, Wheeler said. These things happen. Ive done it many times.Oscar Klefbom also scored and Cam Talbot made 29 saves for the Oilers.Mathieu Perreault and Chris Thorburn had goals for the Jets, who have now lost four straight games. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 27 shots.Winnipeg started the scoring with 5:10 left in the first period. Bryan Littles tip went off the post, but Perreault got two whacks at it, eventually sweeping it in past Talbot.Edmonton came close late in the first on a power play, but Jordan Eberles one-timer hit the crossbar behind Hellebuyck.The Oilers tied the game about two minutes into the second period when a huge rebound from Tyler Pitlicks shot came to Klefbom, who hammered in his fifth of the season.Winnipeg regained the lead with 8 minutes to play in the second when Thorburn scored on a nice feed in front from Marko Dano.Edmonton appeared to pull even again two minutes later, but Zack Kassians breakaway goal was overturned for offsides on review.The Oilers made it 2-2 2:28 into the third period on the power play when Connor McDavid set up Letestu for a goal in front.That set up Edmontons fortunate break, when Laine one-timed the puck with some authority into his own cage. Laine appeared surprised when the rebound of Letestus shot came his way, quickly putting a second hand on his stick and smacking at the puck, possibly in an attempt to clear it out of the zone.Every guy in the National Hockey Leagues got a goal like that, Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. Every defenseman, it goes in off them, so he has a story to tell.Five of Letestus six goals this season have come against Winnipeg.I cant really explain it, Letestu said. The puck just goes in on certain nights. I think its just coincidental that its been against this team. A really lucky third goal and on the power play, Connor (McDavid) finds me in a good spot.Game notes It was the third and final meeting between the two teams this season. The Oilers won both previous games in Winnipeg, shutting out the Jets 3-0 at the Heritage Classic in October, and then won the second game 6-3 to start December. ... Winnipegs Brandon Tanev leads all NHL rookies in hits, coming into the contest with 74 in 30 games.UP NEXTJets: Are off until Thursday night, when they host Florida.Oilers: Remain at home to play Columbus on Tuesday night. Odell Beckham Jr. Jersey . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Jersey . -- Jaye Marie Green shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday to increase her lead to five strokes after the second round of the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament. . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Port Adelaide forwards Charlie Dixon and Angus Monfries will miss the next month of the AFL pre-season because of injury.Dixon had surgery on a lingering ankle complaint and Monfries an operation on his left shoulder after a training mishap last week.Both players are expected return to full training after Christmas.Ports high performance manager Darren Burgess said Dixon felt discomfort in his left ankle, a problem which caused him to miss time last season.Charlie has a history of ankle issues and this is the same ankle that gave him problems towards the end of last season, so we thought the most sensible thing to do is get it cleaned up nnow, Burgess said in statement on Tuesday. Darian Thompson Jersey. Hell be back running in three to four weeks.Monfries, who was among former and current Essenson players suspended for the 2016 season because of the Bombers 2012 supplements scandal, was hurt at training last week.The damage isnt that bad but like Charlie, we just feel its safest to get the shoulder right now so there are no issues down the track, Burgess said.Hell be back running in a few weeks but will stay out of full contact drills until after Christmas.
