Sometimes i'm of the Gene Principe spawn with puns, and I like to call myself the metaphorical genius, but sometimes the stars align and it works out perfectly.
The Winnipeg Jets will host the Carolina Hurricanes in a game that is much like fighting the opposing team's actual given name. The beginning of the season for the Jets has been much like a natural disaster after a "calm before the storm" when they pummelled the Phoenix Arizona Coyotes. Even coach Paul Maurice is freaking out, stemming from telling CBC's Jeff Hamilton that he could #?*!ing make him cry.
Sorry Paul, but it's more like the fan base is starting to cry.

When you’re trying to protect a castle, you put up as big of a wall as you possibly can to slow down your enemies. Now, if you don’t have a wall, or enough variables to build one. The best way to defend your defenseless castle, is to launch an all out assault on your enemy while their deciding their attack strategy. That’s a long, Dungeons and Dragons/Lord of The Rings way of saying a good defense is a good offense.

The Jets look to end an early season three-game skid tonight as they welcome the Calgary Flames to MTS Centre. The Jets offence has hit a wall since their season opener, scoring just one goal in the past three games. This is a sign that the Jets are still missing their top offensive threat, Evander Kane. Kane is still out after suffering an injury Jets season opener against Arizona.
