On Nov. 29, the Winnipeg Jets snapped their five-game losing streak thanks to an exciting 4-2 victory over the Calgary Flames. I’ll be honest, I was ready to shut the game off after that first goal that occurred less than 30 seconds into the game. But luckily, the Jets overcame a two-goal deficit and went on to win.
@Kyle Connor recaptured his scoring groove, registering two of Winnipeg’s four goals, including the game-winner. In goal, @Connor Hellebuyck put on a spectacular show against Calgary and proved once again why he’s one of the best goaltenders in the league, as he stopped 34 of his 36 shots against and earned his seventh victory of the season.
Personally, I endured a very mediocre showing in the betting realm, going 2-for-6 on the night regarding my bets. Let’s hope I can bounce back and enjoy a much better performance Monday.
