Chris Thorburn potted the game-winning goal with only 1:03 remaining in the third period to propel Winnipeg to a 2-1 win over Carolina on Tuesday.

"It feels great, man, just to chip in," said Thorburn. I'm not a guy that is depended upon to score goals but at the same time I still feel confident to be able to do that when I get the opportunity. I've been given a great opportunity right now and I'm playing with two great players who are helping me out and helping along the way."

Chris Thorburn contributed two assists in Winnipeg's 5-2 win over the New York Rangers on Monday night.

Thorburn was elevated to a line with Olli Jokinen and Devin Setoguchi in the contest because of Evander Kane's lower-body injury. "He's a veteran player," Jokinen said. "He's been in the league for a long time. He's a good player. He keeps the game simple. He's good in corners, an easy guy to play with. He was telling me before the game, to just make sure the puck goes to his corner that he's going to go get it. He was doing that. He was easy to play with." The newly-formed trio led the Jets to victory by combining for seven points.
