Post-game recap and interviews with Jets players as well as from interim coach Lowry.

The Jets scored 4

Lots of goals and lots to discuss after the Jets defeat the Habs 8-4 here in Winnipeg to kick off the homestand.

For those who would like to take a deeper dive into the advanced stats click here to see the results from the game via Natural Stat Trick.

Notable:

Blake Wheeler played in game number 800 in his career with the Jets/Thrashers. He joined Bryan Little (843)as the only other member of the 800 club for the combined franchise.

Prior to puck drop Hoosli Ukrainian Male Chorus of Winnipeg gave a powerful performance of the Ukrainian (and Canadian) national anthems before puck drop (watch it here). I could be wrong but I wonder if this is the first time (at an NHL game in North America) a national anthem (other than the Canadian or American) has been sung pre-game.

Mathieu Perreault played 455 games in a Winnipeg Jets uniform which puts him 7th overall for Jets 2.0. Tonight is his first visit to Winnipeg wearing a Habs jersey after seven season playing in Manitoba. He got a warm welcome back to the province which you can watch here.

Both Adam Lowry and Evgeny Svechnikov have scored a goal in three straight games.

Seven straight seasons for Mark Scheifele with at least 20 goals or more.

Multi points:

Mark Scheifele 2G 1A
Pierre-Luc Dubois 1G 2A
Evgeny Svechnikov 1G 1A
Nate Schmidt 1G 1A
Andrew Copp 1G 1A
Adam Lowry 1G 1A
Kyle Connor 2A
Blake Wheeler 2A
