Found November 04, 2011 on Sox and Dawgs:
By Brian Ring Hartford, CT, November 4, 2011 – The Connecticut Whale fell to the St. John’s IceCaps, 6-3, Friday night before 4,028 at the XL Center in Hartford. St. John’s scored twice in 38 seconds midway through the third period, as part of a four-goal frame which erased a 3-2 deficit en route to a 6-3 win over the Whale. “Sometimes it comes down to second effort, recognition, desperation, things like that,” said Whale coach Ken Gernander. “We got some big goals at the end of the second period and then we really didn’t force the issue and played first-effort for the last 20 minutes.” Connecticut had gotten on the board early, as John Mitchell scored his fourth of the season on a backhander just 4:03 into the first period.

Carl Klingberg tied it for St. John’s at 13:58 with...

Tobias Enstrom Injury Report

  Tobias Enstrom is out indefinitely with a broken collarbone, Ken Wiebe of The Winnipeg Sun reports. The injury came in Monday's game against the Florida Panthers when Enstrom was taken down by a hit from Florida Panthers forward Jack Skille. In my view, Tobias Enstrom's skills were under-appreciated with the Atlanta Thrasher organization.

So Much To Work On

In a 3-0 loss to the Winnipeg Jets last night, the Islanders managed 34 shots on goal, but failed to get one past goalie Ondrej Pavelec.  I give full credit to a stellar performance by Pavelec, but eventually the Islanders need to put the puck in the net.  Having 34 shots on goal is certainly an improvement over the lackluster performances over the last few games, but in order...

Winners or losers, Winnipeg happy to have Jets

Evander Kane was sky high when he learned how pumped fans were to have the Jets back in Canada. On a commercial flight over the summer to Winnipeg, Kane was recognized as one of the stars of the reborn franchise and became more popular among his fellow passengers than the free peanuts. Once he landed, about a dozen Jets fans waited outside his gate to greet him.

Two in a row

It’s a chilly, windy morning here in Winnipeg today, but Jets fans here are positively glowing and giddy after last night’s 3-0 victory over the New York Islanders in front of, well, a crowd. Or at least two-thirds of one. After seeing the masses packed into the MTS Centre for Jets home games, it’s still a bit of a shock to see so many empty seats (although it’s not shocking...
