Exhale, everybody. That was undoubtedly the best game of the tournament so far, and if you were watching, count yourself lucky. It will probably end up being the best game of the tournament, period. With a semifinal berth at stake, Team Sweden and Team North America turned in a high-octane thriller that ended in a fitting fashion: An electrifying 3-on-3 OT with end-to-end rushes, dramatic saves, and a beauty of a game-winning goal.
If you missed this one, you'll want to go ahead and watch a replay of the entire game, because this matchup was one for the ages. Sure, there's no history or bad blood between Sweden and this North America team, but there was a whole lot of skill and talent on the ice between the two teams, and we sure saw plenty of it.

Since then, we've grown into the leading independent site for Winnipeg Jets news and analysis, with our daily traffic surpassing what was once the norm for weekly numbers.
With a new season just over the horizon, I want to talk about a change coming with the new season, both personal and with the site.
