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.

Six thoughts 10/17/11 Jets 2-1 Penguins

First win! First win! The Jets are back! The Jets are back!

It was a game I don't think many people in the hockey world expected Winnipeg to win, but they struck with two first period goals and held on for a thrilling 2-1 win over Marc-André Fleury and the Pittsburgh Penguins in what was a terrific hockey game with some good chances at both ends.

SIX THOUGHTS:

-Alexander Burmistrov was by far the best player on the ice Monday night. Claude Noel had him out for the last shift, and he nearly sealed it after creating a late shorthanded breakaway. When the dust settled, he managed a +8 Corsi rating and a +9 Fenwick, being the highest forward in the game. In the first period he looked like a hog on the puck, refusing to give up any control. Despite the arena hosts giving it to Pavelec, I thought that Burmistrov deserved the first star on the night.

Giddiness over the return of the club, understandable as it might have been, appeared to obscure the fact that the team that moved north wasn't very good and that the roster hadn't been bolstered in any meaningful way.

It is now well known that the Winnipeg Jets do not like home openers.

After losing the second one they were a part of this season Saturday night, they no longer have to be involved in one until next year.

A fact the Phoenix Coyotes can't really say for sure they will be a part of in Glendale next year.

But the 0-3 Jets haven't shown much in the category of awe and wonder when it comes to play on the ice.
