Sometimes i'm of the Gene Principe spawn with puns, and I like to call myself the metaphorical genius, but sometimes the stars align and it works out perfectly.
The Winnipeg Jets will host the Carolina Hurricanes in a game that is much like fighting the opposing team's actual given name. The beginning of the season for the Jets has been much like a natural disaster after a "calm before the storm" when they pummelled the Phoenix Arizona Coyotes. Even coach Paul Maurice is freaking out, stemming from telling CBC's Jeff Hamilton that he could #?*!ing make him cry.
Sorry Paul, but it's more like the fan base is starting to cry.

The best way to defend your defenseless castle, is to launch an all out assault on your enemy while their deciding their attack strategy. That’s a long, Dungeons and Dragons/Lord of The Rings way of saying a good defense is a good offense.

The Jets offence has hit a wall since their season opener, scoring just one goal in the past three games. This is a sign that the Jets are still missing their top offensive threat, Evander Kane. Kane is still out after suffering an injury Jets season opener against Arizona.
