It is not often that a team gets badly outplayed on special teams, runs into an opposing goalie who performed as well as the Winnipeg Jets' Ondrej Pavelec did last night, finds itself staring at three separate one-goal deficits and still wins the hockey game. But that's exactly what the Philadelphia Flyers did in last night's 5-4 win at the MTS Centre. The Flyers showed a lot of character last...

Peter Tessier: Jets Felled by Flyers

Do you want to tell me something- do it via Twitter HERE! Ondrej Pavelec sat after the game, he had a look of bewilderment if not dejection and frustration. That was what I read about the Tuesday night game, one I uncharacteristically could not attend, perhaps fortunate to not see the emotional carnage that was left of the Winnipeg Jets. Take a look at what he did to keep...

Winnipeg Jets Forward Jim Slater Wants to Buy 30-Second Trip to Outer Space

If Winnipeg Jets forward Jim Slater could go anywhere this trade deadline, his first choice of a destination wouldn't be anywhere an NHL team plays. Slater wants to visit outer space, he told the crowd at a Jets charity event hosted by a local fire department. He said that when he was growing up, he didn't want to be a firefighter like many young boys dream of. Instead, he...

NHL analyst’s watch destroyed while covering game between benches (video)

Fan Fails of the Week: Seton Hall Fans Fail vs. Winnipeg Jets Fan

Nothing but pure enjoyment today. Let’s set up the scene - Seton Hall vs. Georgetown – The Hall got a huge win last night vs. the #8 Hoyas. Not only was it a big upset, it pretty much (assuming they don’t lay an egg) set them up for March tournament play. The only problem – the fans didn’t succeed last night like the team… Winnipeg Jets Fan – On Tuesday night the Winnipeg...

Flyers and Jets Redefining NHL Awesomeness

If the NHL wants to turn non-believers into fans, it wouldn’t hurt to have every game turn out like the ones between the Winnipeg Jets and Philadelphia Flyers. But given the impossibility of that happening, I’d gladly settle for seeing the two duke it out in a first-round playoff series. The two teams met for the fourth absurdly entertaining time this season on Tuesday night...
