Ondrej Pavelec entered his 5th career game against his new Division rival with 99 career wins and not a single one against Chicago. It's starting to feel like some things never change when it comes the Jets.

The Jets face the Blackhawks just four times this year, and three of those matchups fall in November. The NHL often relies on many games in a short time span to spur rivalry. You play anyone enough in a physical, close quarter, frustrating game like hockey, the logic goes, and you'll learn to hate each other. It's like the playoffs!
I think it's working because I, for one, am starting to really hate these games. Isn't there some team from a place where you can barbeque year-round that has a team for us to play?

The boys start the show with an obligatory mention of Winnipeg's first snowfall, and then get to figuring out how to solve overtime without a shootout. Travis still doesn’t understand why we didn’t pick up Mikhail Grabovski. And the Jets still have (had) the Belt!

Well, I guess we all know what Detroit felt like about a week ago. It’s not a very nice feeling is it?

Fenwick chart (shots + missed shots) from Extraskater.com
In a game that the Jets thoroughly dominated at even strength, they were ultimately defeated due to a bad bounce, defensive lapses, and a painfully horrible penalty kill.
