Winnipeg's Jets Edge San Jose Sharks

WINNIPEG - The San Jose Sharks defeated the Winnipeg Jets last night 4-3; Winnipeg is now 0-2 on the season. Similar to Wednesday night in Anaheim, the Jets got off to a quick start last night, but then it all fell apart. Goals by Pierre-Luc Dubois and Andrew Copp gave the Jets a 2-0 lead…

Winnipeg's Jets Drop Season Opener

WINNIPEG - Despite outshooting and outplaying their opponents for the first half of the game, the Winnipeg Jets fell to the Anaheim Ducks 4-1 last night at the Honda Center. Ducks goaltender John Gibson was outstanding stopping 33 of 34 shots; Connor Hellebuyck was shaky between the pipes for the Jets stopping only 18 of…

Winnipeg's Jets Kick Off Season Tonight

WINNIPEG - The Jets open the 2021-22 campaign tonight on the road against the Anaheim Ducks. The Jets first venture into the Disneyland area in quite some time should bring joy to not only the players, but for all fans as well. On paper, the team looks great. But how they look on the ice…

Arena's New Name

WINNIPEG - A lot of people lost their minds the other day when it was announced that True North Sports and Entertainment entered into a new naming agreement with Canada Life and the downtown rink would be renamed Canada Life Centre. When the rink was originally opened in 2004, MTS bought the naming rights, hence…

Hockey's Done, Now Football!

WINNIPEG - I haven’t written anything for a week. I’ve read quite a bit though. I’ve read all the fan “outrage”. “Fire the coach!” “Fire the GM!,” “Trade Wheeler and Scheifele!” “Burn the building!” Or my favourite, “I’m not renewing my tickets!” Funny stuff. Go ahead and cancel. Give one of the 3000 or so…

Jets Are Done

WINNIPEG - Well, I did predict a sweep. Just not by the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs essentially ruined the Jets Logan Stanley’s one man show with a Tyler Toffoli goal at 1:39 of overtime to give the Canadiens a 3-2 win and a 4-0 sweep of the Winnipeg Jets. Montreal jumped out to a 2-0…

Jets Face Elimination

WINNIPEG - As a 56 year old Winnipeg sports fan, I’ve learned to live with a lot of disappointment. Being in the stands watching the Bombers lose Grey Cup games in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver. Attending the last Jets 1.0 game, that playoff loss to Detroit. Missing the Goldeyes win their latest championship because I…

Jets Trail Habs 2-0

WINNIPEG - I put new batteries in my Budweiser Red Light prior to puck drop yesterday, expecting the Winnipeg Jets to come out flying and exact revenge on the unfair suspension of Mark Scheifele by outplaying and out scoring the Montreal Canadiens. Instead, we got a Jets team that looked like the squad that won…

Scheifele Gets 4 Games

WINNIPEG - If there's anything I have learned over the past 18 months, it’s that I can’t change what I can’t change and not to complain about it. No matter how ridiculous things might be. But yesterday, the NHL set a new level of unbelievability. Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele was suspended for four games…

Jets Looked "Rusty"

WINNIPEG - I was asked on air by Hal Anderson on 680 CJOB yesterday if I thought the 9 day layoff the Jets had after the sweep of the Oilers if I thought the Jets would be “rusty” and I kind of dismissed the question saying that I thought the rest would recharge the team.…

Jets/Habs Get Going Tonight

WINNIPEG - Usually when a playoff series starts in June, it is for all the marbles; the Stanley Cup. For many fans, this matchup is better. The Montreal Canadiens have a huge following in Winnipeg. Since we didn’t have pro hockey in Winnipeg until 1972, that’s quite understandable for older hockey fans, and they passed…

Stop Complaining!

I like Sportsnet. I like TSN too. I love sports on TV. I love sports on radio as well. I am a fan. 100% complete disclosure – I also am a professional wrestling play by play guy; I call the action for the Manitoba based CWE. So I know how difficult it is to call…

Jets Sweep Oilers

I am sorry. I am sorry I predicted the Oilers would win in 5 games. I am sorry that I suggested the Jets should not tinker with the lineup and keep Ehlers and Dubois out. I am sorry I wrote that Kevin Cheveldayoff should of traded Paul Maurice for John Tortorella. I am not sorry…
