The Jets looked like the better team for the first 28 minutes, but went completely in the opposite direction the rest of the way in a 3-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers. 

The team had a few defensive breakdowns that lead to Oiler goals, seeing Josh Morrissey and Jacob Trouba be victimized, while veterans Adam Pardy and Grant Clitsome did nothing to inspire confidence in their abilities to be solid NHL options this year.

Today is a big day for me.

All my life I have been an Edmonton Oiler fan, and despite the many disappointments along the way, I am still faithful. Since the Jets have re-entered the league, they have been my second favourite beating out my previous second favourites; the Nashville Predators and Columbus Blue Jackets (See how i'm a sucker for punishment).

The best part of tonight is that I actually get to watch the game and it will feature my two favourite teams.

The Jets (1-0-0) will hope to remain undefeated in the preseason while the Oilers (1-1-0) are looking to get back in the win column after splitting their opening nights with the Calgary Flames.
