With tonight’s game Mark Scheifele slides into a tie with the S in GST aka Jim Slater for 7th on the all time franchise regular season games played list with game number 584.
The Jets played a solid period as a team to open the contest. Had quite a bit of possession and supported each other when they didn’t. Held a 7-1 high-danger chances edge over the Oilers after one period of play.
Seems appropriate that that slapshot goal by Nikolaj Ehlers tied him with Patrik Laine for 7th on the all-time franchise list with 140 career NHL goals. And also seems appropriate that he was shown on the bench being congratulated by Vesa-Laine-n.
