The St. John's IceCaps had an up and down weekend against the Portland Pirates. If this was a soccer series played on aggregate, heads would be rolling. But two completely separate games? Different story. You can almost take it as a net positive.

On Friday night the Winnipeg Jets hung with arguably the best five-on-five team in hockey for 60 minutes. It wasn't enough, as the club dropped their sixth consecutive decision in overtime to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Not sure I really understand the whole "littering the ice with a jersey to show your displeasure" trend, but from Toronto, On. to Edmonton, Alta. it's sweeping the nation this hockey season.
On Friday night, during Winnipeg's overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks, some fan threw what appeared to be a newly purchased Evander Kane shirshey on the ice.
We won't give this too much comment, because really, who cares? Suffice it to say that we can safely assume that the shirsey tossing fan is cheap (because they threw a shirsey, rather than a jersey) and also that they probably bought the last full-priced piece of Kane memorabilia in all of Manitoba.

Mark Stuart is one tough customer.
The Winnipeg Jets defender dove head first into a Patrick Kane shot on the power-play in the first period of Friday night's game in the Chicago Blackahwks, in order to block a shot. He ended up taking the shot off of the chin, but he stayed in the game.

It has not been a quiet 48 hours in Winnipeg with the controversial news regarding forward Evander Kane, more on that in a bit. But tonight the Jets are back in action for a big divisional matchup against the Chicago Blackhawks for the fourth time this season. The Jets will be looking to snap a five-game losing skid at the MTS Centre.
