Winnipeg Jets still finding ways to win

Winnipeg Jets still finding ways to win, Vladimir Volenyuk

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!

Updates On Rapid Transit In Winnipeg   Construction of Rapid Transit in Winnipeg continues, and there’s a lot to unpack. Originally, once the Southwest Transitway was completed, the Eastern Transitway was to be the next step in the project. That step has been put on hold as of summer 2019 as the City develops their new Transit Master Plan. We’re going to take a deep dive into the Southwest Transitway and then we’re going to take a look at some of the propo...
Winnipeg Residential Water And Waste Fees
The City of Winnipeg is in the process of debating an increase to water and waste rates. To understand the impact this potential increase could have, it’s important to look at a few factors. First, we will analyze how these fees are structured and what they fund. Then, we will look at why an increase is being proposed in the first place. Finally, it will be helpful to compare our fees to the fees in other Canadian cities, though this can be trickier than y...

Volunteers are really making a difference in helping those who are in need. We are talking homeless people, poor, sick, disabled, children without parents…, the list is endless, so each volunteer, each day and each hour they give and provide the service, really helps those people and the cities to stay cleaner and a better place to live in. Some Winnipeggers living in homeless camps just outside of the downtown core say they prefer the autonomy of the camp...

Our City, Our Community: Creating Connections in Winnipeg   There’s a palpable tension in Winnipeg that’s been growing over the past few weeks. You might find this surprising, given we just won the Grey Cup for the first time in decades, but it’s there. This tension revealed itself when the City presented their four-year budget process, in which they anticipate having to make cuts to libraries, fire services, Transit, and more. The budget cuts stem from a...
