Jets-Senators Preview

The last time these clubs met, the Winnipeg Jets ended the Ottawa Senators' six-game home points streak. The Southeast Division-leading Jets can do that again. Winnipeg will also go for its first seven-game points streak in six seasons on Sunday when it faces a Senators club that could tie a league record for consecutive one-goal games. After the visiting Senators (14-8-6...

Peter Tessier: Beware the Ides of March

The Winnipeg Jets are hosted by the Leafs tonight in Toronto on HNIC. IT’s a game that should have a playoff feel to it- much like the one on Tuesday in Winnipeg. The Leafs are on a 4 game skid and Jets are now building their own streak with 2 solid wins, 5-2 over the Leafs and 3-1 over the Rangers. With the most consistent play seen this season from the Jets it might be...

Peter Tessier: Let’s Talk About Burmistrov

FYI the Jets have officially signed Arturs Kulda to a one-year, one-way pro-rated 550k deal for the final 20 games of the Jets' season. I’m not going to review the game from yesterday- let’s put it mildly: the effort was not there. However, the loss presents a whole load of other questions, which may help explain some of Coach Claude Noel’s actions/choices...

Kyle Turris scores sick game-winner on terrible angle snipe

This shot was very Steve Stamkos-esque.  On a four-on-three powerplay late in overtime, the Ottawa Senators wanted to get the extra point badly against their division opponent the Buffalo Sabres.  Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson set up Kyle Turris with a nice pass and Turris absolutely buried it.  He had a terrible angle, positioning himself at the bottom of the circle, but...

Evander Kane turns down Korbinian Holzer’s fight offer, Zach Bogosian accepts

This was a pretty interesting series of events.  Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Korbinian Holzer and Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane were pushing and shoving in the corner and it looked like that they might fight.  Kane knew Holzer was bigger than him and declined Holzer’s attempt to fight.  Holzer had already thrown his gloves off and started to awkwardly pick his equipment...

Senators 4, Sabres 3, OT

Kyle Turris scored his second goal 3:54 into overtime to give the Ottawa Senators a 4-3 victory over the slumping Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. Patrick Wiercioch had a goal and assist, and Chris Phillips also scored for Ottawa, which won for only the second time in eight games (2-2-4). Turris added an assist, and Ben Bishop made 31 saves in his first start in four games. The Senators...

Colton Orr destroys Chris Thorburn in heavyweight fight

After Colton Orr (6’3″ 222 lbs) and Chris Thorburn (6’3″ 210 lbs) mixed it up during the Toronto Maple Leafs-Winnipeg Jets game on March 12th, they went for round 2 on Saturday night.  Unfortunately for Thorburn, like round 1, Colton Orr tuned him up.  The best punch was thrown at about the 36 second mark by Orr.  He worked his arm inside and Thorburn could do nothing...

Mike Augello: Jets Shootdown Leafs Comeback With Shootout Victory

The Maple Leafs for the second Saturday in a row mounted a furious comeback to gain a valuable point in the standings, but their inability to play competent defensively for an entire game cost them a win, as Zach Bogosian’s shootout goal gave the Winnipeg Jets a 5-4 victory at a sold out Air Canada Center. Toronto played with energy and physicality most of the night, but...

Travis Yost: GAMEDAY: This Season is a Neverending Loop of Matinee Games

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators have dropped six of seven games, but have managed to hold firm in the standings against tough competition courtesy of four overtime/shootout points in that same stretch. They'll need to get back in the win column if they're serious about chasing down a playoff berth, though, and have a good shot to do so against...

Travis Yost: Quick Thoughts

Few thoughts after the Ottawa Senators strong three-goal victory over the Winnipeg Jets at Scotiabank Place on Sunday moved them to 15-8-6 on the year through twenty-nine games. -- I mentioned in the pre-game post yesterday what a regulation win would do for Ottawa over Winnipeg, and they went out and handed it to another playoff hopeful. Now, Paul MacLean's team sits in a...

Bruins-Jets Preview

With the lockout-shortened season winding down and playoff races heating up, the condensed schedule is beginning to take its toll on the Boston Bruins and Winnipeg Jets. Neither team will be getting much of a break anytime soon, either. Boston looks to avoid a third consecutive road loss Tuesday night by earning a third straight win over Winnipeg, which begins a four-game homestand...
