Winnipeg Jets is an amazing team and has a huge army of fans and supporters.
With five wins in their last six games, the Jets are now just a single point out of first place in the tough Central Division. And they’ve been doing it all different ways. From blowout wins to comeback victories, to just hanging on at the end, the feeling around this group is every game is winnable.
“I think if we play our game, no matter who we play in this league, I think we got a pretty good chance of winning,” forward Kyle Connor said. “I like our odds.”
Next up for the Jets is a date with the slumping Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday. The Hawks are in the last place in the Western Conference and still haven’t won since the Jets beat them at the end of November, now mired in a seven-game losing streak.
“That’s gonna tell something about the team we have here,” forward Patrik Laine said. “It’s really special. Obviously, after a period like this, we were able to turn it around and play pretty good hockey for the next 40 minutes. That’s a sign of a good team.”
Just a few days ago, December 9, Winnipeg Jets routed the visiting Philadelphia Flyers 7-1, as Josh Morrissey scored the early winner and added an assist. Winnipeg’s power play struck three times, and seven different players found the net, as the Jets improved to 10-4-2 on home ice.
The Jets’ power play was 3-for-6 on the afternoon, while the Flyers went 0 for 2 on the man advantage.
Winnipeg Jets fans give big support for the team at every game, and fans can get rewarded with the team win or with a much better gift. Thanks to Patrik Laine and the amazing game he showed last weekend, one lucky Jets fan is now $1 million richer, it is actually $50,000 a year for 20 years.
Laine scored a very rare five goals against the St. Louis Blues, a five-goal game means a Million Dollar prize through Safeway/Sobey's Score & Win contest plus $100,000 for the fourth goal, and $1,000 in gift cards for the third goal, for whoever is in the draw that night.
On Saturday, November 24th that happened to be Christopher Haley of Winnipeg, the company tweeted Saturday night, a great night for the team and the fans.
Congratulations to our fellow Winnipegger and let's hope for the win in the next game! Go Jets Go!
