"Protect yourself at all times." These are the instructions that boxers receive prior to a match. All hockey players need to start doing the same thing.

TAMPA, Fla. -- When the Winnipeg Jets returned from a very difficult seven-game road trip, my colleague here at jetsnation.com, Matt Eichel, called it a "confidence building road swing."
He was right, too. The Jets had just gone 3-2-2 against Philadelphia, Tampa, Florida, the Islanders, New Jersey, the Rangers and Buffalo and improved from 2-5-1 to 5-7-3. As Eichel pointed out, Bryan Little finally scored his first two goals of the season, Mark Flood emerged as a legitimate NHL defenseman and Ondrej Pavelec demonstrated that he could backstop his team and play consistently well from one game to the next.

Because I teach literacy and basic skills with the Thames Valley District School Board, I was asked to attend Facing Off With Literacy, an evening headlined by guest speaker (and former Cup winner) Jacques Demers. Many of you probably remember that in 2005, Demers revealed to the world that he was functionally illiterate, that he was set to begin rectifying that situation, and also that he wanted to address literacy in a more public way. On Thursday night, he opened up to a room of nearly 450 people at the London Convention Center, and spoke passionately to raise support and finances for literacy programs. Leafs-Habs rivalry notwithstading, I have to say that it's a noble thing he's chosen to do.
