The Winnipeg Jets got off to a fantastic start against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night, scoring a goal on the game’s first shift, but the game’s final 59:25 didn’t go exactly as Winnipeg had planned.

Getting over .500 (12-11-4) for the first time this season didn't exactly come easy for the Winnipeg Jets.
They had to beat a Boston Bruins team that hadn't lost in regulation in 15 straight games going back to Oct. 29. The 2-1 win Tuesday gave the Jets a three-game winning streak and its seventh win in 10 games (7-2-1), which narrowed the gap behind division-leading Florida...

I don’t know what USA Hockey plans to say about Chris Chelios on Monday night. I’m not sure how...
The Red Wings received a welcome Sunday off after their 7-1 victory over Winnipeg on Saturday, and today, they’ll practice, fly to Pittsburgh and prepare for what might be the most brutal stretch of their schedule: the Wings will play six games over the course of ten pre-Christmas days, facing the Penguins in Pittsburgh (and no, neither the Penguins nor Wings know the status of...
Only four Detroit Red Wings were kept off the score sheet last night in a 7-1 thrashing of the Winnipeg Jets. In contrast, every member of the Jets was a minus save for Tanner Glass and Jason Jaffray, with Zach Bogosian and Evander Kane “leading” the charge at -4 apiece. Ouch.

On Monday, the NHL Board of Governors voted 26-4 in favor of realignment from six divisions and two conferences to four conferences. In a surprisingly quick move, the Board adopted the four-conference format that will establish two eight-team and two-seven team conferences primarily premised on geographical proximity. The NHLPA must still vote for the proposed...

Here are notes and quotes from the Wings' 7-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday night at Joe Louis Arena:
Hope you weren't too attached to that rivalry with the Red Wings, San Jose fans. Starting next season, they'll be no more a part of the Sharks' lives than teams playing in Eastern Canada or Florida. Same goes for the...
