Preseason Game 1: Senators 3 Jets 2 in OT and SO post-game recap

Post-game recap and interviews with Jets players as well as from Coach Maurice.

The Senators came back to win the game in OT and then for extra measure they won it a shootout. In case the headline or that last line is confusing you it was announced during the 1st period by JetsPR that regardless of the score the game would end with a shootout.

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.



It was Eric Comrie‘s first game in a Jets jersey in Winnipeg since April 2nd, 2019.

Backup goalie Mikhail Berdin was a friendly fire victim when Evgeny Svechnikov‘s shot went into the Jets bench in the 1st period. He was back on the bench in the 2nd period.

While this game has the chaotic feel of an AHL game you can see why the Jets signed Riley Nash. Steady presence out there.

Took Cole Perfetti about a period to get comfortable but the Jets 2020 1st rounder was really showing off his intellect in the 2nd period.

He doesn’t get a lot of fanfare but Jansen Harkins continued to show a relentlessness to his game.

Solid enough game for CJ Suess, David Gustafsson and Kristian Vesalainen.

Defenceman Johnny Kovacevic also had a good game, which merited him praise from head coach Paul Maurice.
