Jets take off
Yesterday was the Winnipeg Jets’ first game. It came with the expected fanfare. The Prime Minister of Canada, the NHL Commissioner and other dignitaries including Don Cherry all showed up to add their star power to the Biggest Show In Town. Unfortunately, that was where it ended and the Jets came out flat and cruised to a rough landing at the sticks of the Montreal Canadiens. The score was 5-1 and deservedly so. I hope that this game is not a sign of things to come. For now, I will blame it on the jitters.
