Wild Survive Jets – Zucker Gets Two

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Jason Zucker scored twice, giving Minnesota’s lagging power play a lift with his first goal and getting one later just after leaving the penalty box, and the Wild hung on to beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Thursday night.

Jets’ Problematic Play in Pittsburgh Continues

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has not been a prosperous place for the Winnipeg Jets. After their frustrating 4-0 loss to the Penguins Friday night, the Jets are 0-7-2 in Pittsburgh since relocating from Atlanta in 2011. Problems at PPG Paints Arena Call it what you will — an anomaly, a trend, a curse — but make no mistake, the Jets have been owned when visiting the Steel City. Friday’s game seemed a good chance for the Jets to get their first-ever win in Pittsburgh as they came into the match...

Penguins Down Jets – Winning Streak at 8

PITTSBURGH — Olli Maatta and Matt Cullen scored 11 seconds apart in the first period, Matt Murray stopped 33 shots and the surging Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-0 on Friday night for their eighth straight victory. Maatta picked up his first goal since last March when his power-play goal beat Connor Hellebuyck 14:19 into the first period and Cullen added his fourth when Zach Aston-Reese’s centring pass went airborne and caromed off Cullen’s left shoulder and into the net. Dominik S...

Brandon Tanev and Blake Wheeler also scored for the Jets (25-12-2), who snapped a two-game losing skid. Leon Draisaitl had a pair of goals and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored the other for the Oilers (18-18-3), who lost all five games of their recent homestand and have dropped six in a row overall.

Flames Snap 3-Game Skid With Win Over Jets

WINNIPEG — Johnny Gaudreau had a hat trick as the Calgary Flames ended a three-game losing skid with a 4-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday. Mark Jankowski had a shorthanded, third-period goal for Calgary, which was 0-2-1 heading into the game. Sean Monahan contributed three assists and Elias Lindholm added a pair. Gaudreau’s first goal was actually a redirection by Jets forward Patrik Laine, who stuck out his stick to block a Gaudreau pass attempt to Lindholm, but the puck went by goa...

Top 5 Winnipeg Jets Games So Far

The Winnipeg Jets are currently on a well-deserved four-day break after playing nine games in 16 days, but The Hockey Writers and this author never take a holiday. Despite the fact more than half of the 2018-19 season has yet to be played, the Central Division-leading Jets have racked up a lot of wins so far — 24 of them, in fact — and created many memorable moments in the process. The Winnipeg Jets have done plenty of celebrating this year, capturing 24 wins so far. (THE CANADIAN PRESS/D...

Whicker: The young and the old combine to lead the Kings to an impressive win

LOS ANGELES — The learning finally began to curve for the Kings on Tuesday night. Rookie Austin Wagner scored twice. Rookie Matt Luff shook off an offside, which nullified a goal after Winnipeg called for a replay, and sprung Wagner loose for his second goal. Rookie Daniel Brickley fired the puck from the left point that Wagner redirected for the first goal. If you’ve been following this so far, you might get the impression that the Kings scored more than once. In fact, they beat the Jets 4-1. I...

It was Winnipeg’s third straight overtime victory (22-9-2) and extended their win streak to a season-high five games. It also put them in a tie for second in the NHL with the Calgary Flames and tops in the Western Conference.

Brossoit Is Jets’ Biggest Surprise This Season

Many storylines surrounding the Winnipeg Jets this season — such as their prolific power play, Patrik Laine’s innate goal-scoring ability, and Kyle Connor’s continued success — are not hugely surprising. However, one storyline has been rather unexpected: the steady, heady play of backup goaltender Laurent Brossoit. Brossoit Cool, Confident and Capable Brossoit has been so sturdy fans have given him the moniker “Bross-Wall.” With a 7-1-1 record, 2.35 GAA, and .930 SV%, he’s exceeding all ...

Jets Get Past Blackhawks – Ehlers With Hat Trick & Laine With Two

WINNIPEG — Nikolaj Ehlers had a hat trick and Patrik Laine became the fourth-youngest player in NHL history to score 100 career goals when he recorded a pair in the Winnipeg Jets’ 6-5 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday. Laine scored his 100th and 101st goals in his 178th game at the age of 20 years, 224 days. Wayne Gretzky did it the fastest in 20 years and 40 days.

Hellebuyck’s Play Far from Solid This Season

Not many people thought goaltending would be an issue for the 2018-19 Winnipeg Jets. The team appeared to be set between the pipes coming into this season, inking Vezina-nominated goalie Connor Hellebuyck to a six-year, $37 million contract that seemed to be a steal. However, through the first 23 games of the season, the 25-year-old has looked shaky and been far from the goaltender who won 44 times and contributed massively to his team’s success in 2017-18. Hellebuyck’s Statistics Show Re...

Connor Hellebuyck Takes The Blame For Tying Goal Last Night

from TSN, Winnipeg Jets goaltender  Connor Hellebuyck  stopped 26 of the 30 shots he faced Tuesday night against Pittsburgh Penguins and shouldered the blame for the 4-3 loss after allowing a weak goal early in the third period. With the Jets up 3-2 in the final frame, Hellebuyck failed to stop a soft wrist shot from Penguins fourth-liner  Derek Grant , allowing the Penguins to tie the game 3-3 with just under 15 minutes remaining. “That one is on me," Hellebuyck said of Grant'...

Penguins Rally Late to Down Jets

WINNIPEG — Zach Aston-Reese capped off a third-period rally as the Pittsburgh Penguins downed the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 on Tuesday night. Sidney Crosby, Riley Sheahan and Derek Grant also scored for the Penguins (10-8-5). Mark Scheifele scored twice for the Jets (13-8-2) and Brandon Tanev had another. Tanev got things started for the Jets at 7:01 with his fourth goal of the season, coming on a short-handed breakaway with a wraparound that beat Casey DeSmith.

Jets Need Much More From Myers

It’s one thing to have a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. It’s another to have those adjectives describe your season. Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tyler Myers has struggled mightily through the first quarter of the 2018-19 season, and his exceptionally poor play over the Jets’ past few contests has brought the situation closer to a head. From Luxury to Liability Coming into the season, it seemed as if having a veteran of 365 NHL games playing a third-pairing role, against the oppos...

Jets Beat Capitals 3-1; University of Manitoba Coach is Backup Goalie

WINNIPEG — Defenceman Ben Chiarot scored with 7:09 left in the third period to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-1 victory over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday. Chiarot’s shot beat Pheonix Copley on the glove side and may have ticked off a Washington player’s stick. Mark Scheifele scored on the power play for Winnipeg (11-5-1), while Kyle Connor put in an empty-netter with a minute left to seal the victory.

NHL Standings Predictions: Preseason Edition

For a number of seasons now, the Metropolitan and Central have been the better and deeper of the NHL’s four divisions. That has meant teams from the Atlantic and Pacific have been picking higher in the entry draft in recent years. Is that balance of power on the verge of shifting this season? According to my annual preseason predictions, the answer is yes — at least to some degree. Some of these predictions — from the divisional standings to the playoff picture to the draft lottery odds — are, a...

Jets’ Burning Question: Who’s Going to Backup Hellebuyck?

The big news in the Winnipeg Jets’ crease this offseason was the extension signed by Connor Hellebuyck, yet the more important decision has yet to be made. That decision? Who will backup Hellebuyck? Brossoit Leaves Much to be Desired The 2018 offseason left the Jets’ goaltending depth depleted. First, there was the buyout of Steve Mason’s contract – following an injury-filled season when his tandem with Hellebuyck collapsed – and then there was the departure of Michael Hutchinson to the Florid...

Battle for Jets Backup Is Brewing

Let’s get one thing straight: there is no goaltending controversy in Winnipeg… at least not when it comes to their starter. Connor Hellebuyck is the Jets’ undisputed number-one netminder. The 25-year-old is coming off a sparkling season and entering 2018-19 with a new lucrative yet team-friendly deal. In 2017-18, he notched a career-high 44 wins and six shutouts, posted a .924 save percentage (SV%), a goals-against average (GAA) of 2.36, and was nominated for the Vezina Trophy — an award he shou...
