Latest Jets news.

Jets (and prospective Jets) @ World Championship games:

The semifinals are today:

Game 1:  Russia vs. Finland.  (Alexander Burmistrov, Ivan Telegin & Parik Laine).

Update:  Alexander Burmistrov didn’t play.  Telegin assisted on the opening goal of the game for Russia.  Patrik Laine had a beauty assist (see below) over to Jokinen to help break a 1-1 tie.  Ivan Telegin had to be helped off the ice after receiving a slash as he couldn’t get himself off the ice.

And for some real fun listen to the Finnish call of the second and third goals. Now that guy is a smidge excited:

Finland wins 3-1.

Game 2:  Canada vs. USA (Mark Scheifele, Kyle Connor).

Update:  Kyle Connor didn’t dress for the Americans.  Appears to still be bothered by that undisclosed minor injury.  Scheifele finished with two penalty minutes and two shots on net.

Canada wins a tight game 4-3.
