What better way to kick of 90s night than to have Daniel Greaves from The Watchmen to sing the anthems. Only thing better would have been him breaking into “My life is a stereo” once he concluded the Canadian anthem.
At one point in the 1st period the Jets had David Gustafsson, Jansen Harkins, Mikey Eyssimont, Ville Heinola and Dylan Samberg and they looked very good as a five-man unit.
Paul Stastny got a Friendly Manitoba welcome back to Winnipeg.
Crowd gave Mikey Eyssimont a HUGE cheer for his first ever NHL goal. Worth pointing out that this goal by the Jets was a total Moose effort. G: Mikey Eyssimont A: David Gustafsson A: Jansen Harkins.
Jansen Harkins picks up his first point of the season.
Amazing what happens when you allow guys to continue to do in the NHL what they excel at in the AHL. For David Gustafsson that is working his ass off on the penalty kill. Moose PK could use him right now but he’s working quite nicely with the Jets PK.
Three goals in 4:09 meant this game was going to OT.
Netminder David Rittich is now 3-1-0 as starter for the Jets.
