Senators @ Jets | Sat Jan 19 | 200PM CST | MTS Centre | Game 1 | OMIGODTHENHLISBACK!




Ottawa (0-0-0) at Winnipeg (0-0-0)

Season series: First of three meetings this season. Ottawa took three of four from Winnipeg in
2011-12, with Milan Michalek scoring five goals and Jason Spezza finishing with two goals and seven
points. Craig Anderson posted a .932 save percentage.

Big story: Year Two begins for the reborn Jets, and while the fans' fervor over the NHL's return to
Winnipeg doesn't figure to die down anytime soon, more will be expected in Manitoba this season. The
Jets were not exactly a disappointment in 2011-12 with their 37-35-10 record, but it left them 11th
in the Eastern Conference, eight points out of the final playoff berth occupied by Saturday's
opponent, the Senators.

Team Scope:

Senators: There are raised expectations in Ottawa as well after the Senators surprised last season
by making the playoffs and forcing the top-seeded Rangers to a Game 7 before bowing out in the first
round. During the offseason, captain Daniel Alfredsson decided to return for another season. The
Senators added Marc Methot to their defense and Guillaume Latendresse up front, while their
offensive nucleus should be bolstered by rookie Jacob Silfverberg, who made his NHL debut in the
playoffs and will skate on the top line alongside scorers Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek.

"I don't know him very well, but I like his attitude -- he seems like a really driven kid and I
think he wants to do well," Spezza told the Ottawa Citizen. "I think he expects a lot out of himself
and it's probably a little bit of an advantage to him that he's gotten to play those American League
games without the pressure of thinking about being called up and worrying about that.

"I think he'll bring a good element to our line and it's good to have more options, for sure."

Jets: Over the past two seasons, Ondrej Pavelec has established himself as a No. 1 goaltender in the
League, and while Andrew Ladd, Evander Kane, Dustin Byfuglien and others in front of him will go a
long way in determining Winnipeg's fortunes this season, it's the 25-year-old Pavelec who stands as
the last line of defense. He posted a 29-28-9 record with a 2.91 goals-against average and .906 save
percentage in 2011-12 and figures to be a workhorse in this shortened, 48-game campaign.

"He was a good player for us last year," coach Claude Noel told the Winnipeg Free Press. "I'd like
him to improve a little bit on the road, along with our team. And if those numbers can improve a
bit, great. I don't expect him to carry the team on his shoulders. We'd like him to play the
majority of games and see where that goes."

Injury report:

Ottawa defenseman Jared Cowen will miss the entire season after hip surgery.
Defenseman Mike Lundin is recovering from a broken finger.

Winnipeg defenseman Zach Bogosian is
out indefinitely following wrist surgery. Forward Antti Miettinen is out indefinitely with an
upper-body injury. Forward Nik Antropov is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

WOOT--First 2013 GDT!!!

My prediction...

Jets 7
Sens 4

allan5oh 01-19-2013 12:01 AM

A GDT appears!

DespoticNewt 01-19-2013 12:02 AM


Oops, wrong team. :D

Hammer Slammer 01-19-2013 12:02 AM

Hahaha, beautiful.

TroubaFan1 01-19-2013 12:03 AM

Im going to say 4-2 Sens with an empty net goal. Hope im wrong though. Go Jets Go!

Becel 01-19-2013 12:03 AM

Beautiful. Can't wait. Let's go.

YWGinYYZ 01-19-2013 12:04 AM

My prediction: 6-4 Jets, with an EN. Claude will pull his hair out over the loose defensive play, and all will be right with the world. :D

pcanuck 01-19-2013 12:05 AM

Jets 3
Wheeler, Kane PP, Enstrom

Sens 2
(who cares)

A gritty performance and lots of back checking save the Jets. The D is horrendous and Pavs plays very well after signing a huge deal. The fans leave happy.

Tom ServoMST3K 01-19-2013 12:06 AM

Jets: Lots
Sens: Very Few

Many pizzas will be delivered by both sides in the game I'm sure.

Gump Hasek 01-19-2013 12:06 AM

OMG, epic GDT. Great job, nice touch with the pizza insertion BTW.


Time for a musical interlude...

JetsHomer 01-19-2013 12:07 AM

People sure do like to bash our defence but looking at their line up our defence is clearly better.

sipowicz 01-19-2013 12:08 AM

5-4 Jets, Jets goals by Ladd, Little, Wheeler , Buff and Ponki

YWGinYYZ 01-19-2013 12:08 AM

videofarmer 01-19-2013 12:16 AM

Great job, YWG!

Jets 1 - Sens 3...

...injuries from rusty players jumping right into an NHL game.

The score will be higher and the Jets will have more goals!
Slater with the first goal of the season.
