Winnipeg Sun: Connor scores OT winner as Jets tie series with Blues. Just a wee bit of emotion from the Jets as each player appeared to individually hug Kyle Connor after his goal ensured this series was tied at 2 rather than the Blues holding a massive 3-1 series lead. Ken has more from St. Louis.
Winnipeg Sun: Chiarot makes strides. Sometimes life is about the opportunities that are put in front of you.
Winnipeg Sun: Whiteout Street Party capped at 11,000 for Game 5. While I’m not outside at the street parties the excitement just doesn’t seem to be the same as what we witnessed last season. Having said that with a 2-2 series on the biggest party night of the year (holiday on Friday) I suspect it will get to that next level.
