Former Tiger Chad Rau scored in his NHL debut, recording the second of a franchise record three goals in 59 seconds in a win over Dallas.

Goalie Richard Bachman came on in relief in the third for Dallas.

It proved to be the game-winner, which prompted some shaving cream to the face by his teammates. He was the subject of this blog post as well.

Mark Stuart brings a blue-collar attitude that’s invaluable to the Jets in this feature.
