Jets’ GM Cheveldayoff: ‘Tough Decisions’ Coming This Summer

WINNIPEG — General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff says an upcoming summer of “tough decisions” means changes are on the way for the Winnipeg Jets. Young stars such as Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor are due hefty raises now that their entry-level contracts are coming to an end, but the team was already near the US$79.5-million salary cap so some familiar faces may be gone to free up cash. “We have some tough decisions to make this summer, a lot of them,” Cheveldayoff said Monday after exit meetin...

The Secret To Success In The Stanley Cup Playoffs

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, The drama isn’t over but the NHL’s first round has again served up an exquisite set of storylines with a new cast of heroes and goats, each unique, each resistant to a quick and easy judgment on the state of the game. If the NHL is trending towards youth, for example, someone forgot to tell the Washington Capitals, New York Islanders, St. Louis Blues and San Jose Sharks, four teams built around veterans who are making noise this spring. The Is...


Blues’ Improbable Run Continues

ST. LOUIS — Last in the NHL in early January, the St. Louis Blues keep making history and celebrating an unlikely run. After having a league-worst 34 points on Jan. 2, St. Louis became the seventh team to make the playoffs after being in last place at the start of the new calendar year. Beating the Winnipeg Jets in six games made the Blues the first such team to reach the second round from that far back. "Within this locker room we had a lot of tough conversations and honest conversatio...

Will Canada’s Stanley Cup Drought Continue?

Whether you call it a drought, a curse, or by some other name (I personally call it the Bettman curse, as it almost perfectly coincides with Gary Bettman’s tenure as NHL commissioner), Canada hasn’t had a Stanley Cup Champion for a very long time. Sadly, 26 years might not be long enough to turn things around. Related: Longest Stanley Cup Droughts With both the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets eliminated, it’s now beginning to look like Canada’s rather unfortunate streak will continue beyo...

Binnington Proving to be Blues’ Future

The St. Louis Blues finished an improbable comeback Thursday night when they defeated the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 in Winnipeg, scoring the winning goal with 15 seconds remaining. With that victory, the team took a 3-2 series lead back to home ice for game six, which takes place Saturday night in St. Louis. Lost in the chaos of the last-minute victory was another strong performance from the team’s rookie goaltender, Jordan Binnington. With his consistent playoff performance, the netminder is puttin...

Jets Need Another Road Win to Force Game 7

WINNIPEG — Jacob Trouba hopes recent history will repeat itself for the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets face elimination from the playoffs in Saturday’s Game 6 in St. Louis, but the veteran defenceman and his teammates are drawing confidence from a pair of victories at Enterprise Center over the last week. “It’s the biggest game of the year so we’ve got to show up and we know we can do it,” Trouba said Friday after Winnipeg held an optional skate before flying to Missouri. “We know we can play ...

The St. Louis Blues Need One More Win To Advance After A Shocking Win In Winnipeg

from Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, By now the strategy is crystal clear for the Blues. They should simply forfeit Game 6 Saturday in St. Louis, proceed directly to Game 7 here, clinch the series, and move on to Round 2 of Lord Stanley’s playoffs. Because apparently it no longer is possible for the Blues to lose at Bell MTS Place. They were down 2-0 in the first period Thursday. On the ropes when they had to kill a four-minute high-sticking penalty to Robert Thomas. Within...

St. Louis Blues: 3 Notes for Success Against the Jets

As has become tradition in the Gateway City, the St. Louis Blues squandered a two-game series lead in the playoffs (this time against the Winnipeg Jets) and now find themselves tied at two, with the series returning to Canada on Thursday night. The team’s play was uninspiring in both of their home defeats, and there are a number of alterations they need to make to improve their chances of capturing the series.

Winipeg Jets Even Their Series With The St. Louis Blues

from Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet, After an uneven 82-game regular season that saw them decline by 15 points, and two more playoff losses on home ice, the Winnipeg Jets went to St. Louis and rediscovered the formidable form that brought them within three wins of the Stanley Cup Final last spring. Kyle Connor’s calm tap-in from Mark Scheifele’s centring pass at 6:02 of overtime gave the Jets a 2-1 win against the St. Louis Blues and a 2-2 tie in their first-round series that seemed impr...

Andersen, Grubauer & Rinne Stepping up in Playoffs

DENVER — This classifies as fun for Frederik Andersen: Protecting a late lead in the third period by leaping out of his net to stop a shot with the handle of his stick. Sticky situation handled. “Doing whatever it takes to save it,” the Toronto goaltender explained after the 3-2 win Monday over Boston. “Fun one.” Going into the post-season, there were some reservations concerning such goaltenders as Andersen, Philipp Grubauer of Colorado and even Pekka Rinne of Nashville. They have each...

Credit To Doug Armstrong

from Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, While the Blues toiled with the Jets in a Friday night thriller that tilted for good on another dominant third period that sent the Blues home from Winnipeg up 2-0 in this best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal, Armstrong offered a quick nod as he cruised by. No need for comment. His decisions are saying everything for him. Ryan O’Reilly, his eye blackened by a scrum, shared between wins in Winnipeg that this is the ...

Five Storylines From Jets’ First Two Playoff Games

The Winnipeg Jets’ first two Round 1 Stanley Cup Playoff games — a pair of one-goal losses to the St. Louis Blues that has them down 2-0 in the series — has created a number of storylines.

The Tampa Bay Lightning, the NHL's best team, lost their first two playoff games at home to the Columbus Blue Jackets and are vulnerable without their top scorer for Game 3.

WINNIPEG — Patrik Laine views the playoffs as a fresh start for himself. He’s not the only Jets player with that approach.

The Blues, on the other hand, nearly ran the table, finishing 8-1-1. Laine admitted his confidence was low following an inconsistent regular season, but he’s optimistic going into Wednesday’s Game 1 at home. “B...
