There's no place like home for the Winnipeg Jets.

The Jets finished their run of 13 of 15 games at the MTS Centre on New Year's Eve against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Winnipeg fell behind 1-0 on a Clarke MacArthur power play goal, but got one of their own early in the second to tie it up.

Andrew Ladd gave the Jets their first lead 2:35 later, only to have Phil Kessel tie it with his 21st goal of the year. The game-winning goal also came in the second, again on a power play with Blake Wheeler getting his sixth of the season.

The Shots on goal after two periods were 28-12 in favour of the Jets. While the Leafs had a strong third, they could not beat Ondrej Pavelec.

Kessel, MacArthur and Joffrey Lupul extended their point streaks for the Leafs, while Blake Wheeler had a goal and an assist to extend his point streak to five games, where the Jets' forward has three goals and five assists in that span.  Wheeler has points in 16 of his last 20 games and has picked up 22 points in that stretch.

The Jets finished their 13 home games with an impressive 9-3-1 record, and now prepare for 14 of their next 19 games on the road.

Coach Claude Noel summed it up the best at the end of his post game news conference, "There is a lot of joy in my life today, Happy New Year to you all."
