The Jets have been a great team to watch so far this preseason!
Well, the first two games the Winnipeg Jets played this preseason went incredibly well. They took the first two games from the Oilers in dramatic fashion.
The first game was close. After being tied one-to-one for most of the game. The Jets pulled off the win after Cole Perfetti scored the lone shootout goal.
The game was an interesting watch as you could really tell it was a long time since they had played a real game.
The player I was happiest to see on the ice was Adam Lowry in the ‘C’ for the first time. It suited him and I hope he pulls off being captain.
The second game against the Edmonton Oilers is where the Jets really took off. They scored five unanswered goals, with Laurent Brossoit holding his own between the Jets posts for all three periods. Its really great to see him between the pipes in a Jets jersey again.
Usually, I find myself watching them lose to the Oilers at the start of the preseason, so this was a nice change. I know it doesn’t mean much in regards to the regular season, but it is a promising start.
I am counting down the days until October 11 for the season opener against the Calgary Flames. It should be an exciting match up.
I’ve been watching this team play for over a decade now, since they moved from Atlanta, and I still get just as excited as I was that first year back.
I wish every Canadian team the best of luck this year, though. I would love for at least one of the teams to win it.
Go Jets Go!
