High-octane offense continues to fuel the surging Winnipeg Jets. Kyle Connor had two goals and an assist, Nikolaj Ehlers also scored twice, and the Jets defeated the Buffalo Sabres 7-4 on Tuesday night for their third straight victory. The Central Division-leading Jets are 6-0-1 in their past seven games and have scored at least four […]
Maybe a heated, confrontational practice is what it will take to snap the Buffalo Sabres out of their funk. Coming off a 7-4 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night, the Sabres held a physical practice that could have an effect in different ways moving forward. Evander Kane and Justin Falk had a loud […]
For a franchise that’s never won a playoff game, let alone a series, it’s probably wise to be conservative in praising the Winnipeg Jets. Then again, with a name like the Jets, it also makes sense that this team might rapidly raise its ceiling. During
The Winnipeg Jets shoved aside yet another opponent at Bell MTS Place. Mathieu Perreault scored twice, Connor Hellebuyck made 31 saves and Winnipeg beat the San Jose Sharks 4-1 on Sunday to extend its home winning streak to five games. Matt Hendricks and Marko Dano also scored to help the Central Division-leading Jets improve to […]

Myers is right on the cusp of being owned in half of Yahoo’s leagues, but he technically still qualifies for the list. After missing most of last season, Myers has been solid for the Jets […]
Against a high-powered Jets offense that leads the league in first-period goals (40) and ranked fourth in goals per game (3.41) entering Thursday, the Blackhawks made sure to throw the kitchen sink at Winnipeg in the opening frame. The Blackhawks scored two goals on their first two shots thanks to Vinnie Hinostroza netting his first […]
Might regression be hitting the Winnipeg Jets at the moment? It’s a question Jets fans are asking themselves after a three-game road trip that produced just a single point and a goose egg in the win column. It’s the first time the Jets have lost three straight all season.
Brayden Point put the exclamation point on the Tampa Bay Lightning's success stretch at home. Point scored 36 seconds into overtime and the Lightning completed a perfect four-game homestand with a 4-3 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday night.

Things looked ugly for the Ottawa Senators on Sunday, even beyond the 5-0 margin of defeat at the hands of the increasingly legit Winnipeg Jets.
