Even when the scariest thing on Halloween was their penalty-killing unit, the Winnipeg Jets exorcised their early-season road demons once again and got exactly what they deserved on Monday night: A 4-3 victory over the Florida Panthers in Sunrise.

It wasn’t easy, but with Jets 2.0, nothing ever is.

Being Halloween, the Winnipeg Jets made their fans sit through a bit of a scare, giving up a 2-0 first period lead, forcing themselves to tie it up with 49.9 seconds to go and wait all the way to a shootout before earning two points against the Florida Panthers.

-Jets/Panthers on Monday night means football, right?


-What a pretty goal by Kyle Wellwood to undress Jose Theodore on the shootout winner. He came in with both speed and lateral movement and had the 2002 MVP completely out of the net before tucking the puck in for the winner. Good composure from Wellwood who scored the new-NHL hat-trick: A goal, an assist, and the shootout winner. You could call that a Pavel Datsyuk.

October 31 News and Notes

All Hallows Eve is here in all its glory, with children headed to the door this evening in search of treats their parents would never let them near any other night, and those same parents openly regretting the sugar rush they're about to bestow on said urchins. Of course, for those of you in between those ages, Hallowe'en is about other pursuits, and those are perfectly fine as well. As an aside, when did this copious skin baring business start in earnest? When I was in university in the early 80's, you'd only see someone in their knickers if you were dating them, and even then it was iffy ;-) I'm not complaining, mind, just attempting to fill the gaps in my knowledge base.

Anyhoo, let's get to it. In this aggregation of notes, the Leafs hit a roadblock in the nation's capital, the Oil are cruising for now, and Vancouver snaps out of their funk with a bang.
