On the heels of a somewhat disappointing outcome in the Big Smoke last night, Winnipeg's two game roadie finishes this evening with a game versus one of the few teams likely to be looking up at them by season's end. Our nation's
sump hole for tax dollars capital hosts a very bad hockey team, one that seems a clear favourite to have the best shot in the Nail Yakupov derby next spring.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has been very good early in the 2011-12 season, but he isn’t the only player from his draft class making an NHL splash. After the jump, a quick recap of the players selected in 2011 currently playing in the NHL.

The Jets, after a strong start, blew a 3-1 third period lead and lost to the Toronto Maple Leafs in the shootout...
-You can't fault Ondrej Pavelec on either of the three regulation goals, but on the tying marker by Phil Kessel, Bryan Little who was supposed to control Dion Phaneuf at the left point, fell way out of position because he dropped his stick in the opposite corner. Rather than play without his stick, the young Little went to retrieve it, leaving Mark Stuart to cover both Kessel and Phaneuf, who made a terrific pass, albeit through not much traffic to Kessel who took an excellent shot in a classic scoring position.

Despite watching their 3-1 lead in Toronto evaporate faster than you could blink, the Winnipeg Jets can take away alot of positives from the game against the Leafs Wednesday night.
First of all, they came out of the gate and took the play for the most part to the Leafs for the most of the game until the final 11 minutes of the third.
They also did take it pretty hard to the Leafs at times in overtime, but their first shootout was not a success as both Kyle Wellwood and Bryan Little could not cash in on James Reimer.

Adam Lowry breathed a sigh of relief when his agent called on June 26th to tell the six-foot-five, 189-pound forward he had been selected in the third round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. He took another one when he found out that it was the Winnipeg Jets – not the Calgary Flames – who had selected him.
