  • Justin Abdelkader helps Red Wings ground Jets

    Detroit News "For two periods Thursday, the Red Wings didn't look like a team capable of swiping any sort of victory. But, that final 20 minutes, that was a different matter.

  • Jets down Senators in shootout

    Winnipeg Sun "Mathieu Perreault could be onto something, if only playing with a broken stick didn't usually result in a two-minute minor.

  • Malkin, Crosby score in shootout in Penguins victory over the Jets

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "There will, of course, be nights like this.

Games when goaltending and penalty-killing..." November 07

  • Pavelec saves the day for Jets against Rangers

    Winnipeg Sun "Ondrej Pavelec won’t completely silence his critics just because he has strung together a few top-notch performances, but he’s doing everything he can to quiet them down.

  • It’s a miracle! Devils finally victorious in a shootout with win over Jets

  • Jets beat Islanders to kick off road swing

    Winnipeg Sun "The Winnipeg Jets looked like they had travel legs in the first period and had to deal with a hard-charging New York Islanders team chock full of talent.
