He likes the weather here in Winnipeg better than Gotham(Pittsburgh).



BTW the picture of Kane in the OP shows up in 4pieces on my iPad. Looks okay on my PC.

keep it rolling beat the Burgh!!! Just looking around the NHL today

-New Jersey plays Washington so we need that game to be won in regulation i would say preferably NJ getting the win since we have two more games played then Washington.

- Carolina to beat Ottawa

- Islanders to beat the Leafs

I'm probably watching the game with my brother tonight. He is a Pens fan. I REALLY(!) need a win tonight so I can enjoy christmas with him in the house!

Tonight is going to be a tougher game than yesterday no doubt. Montreal was in melt down mode. I don't think the Pens are. The duo of Malkin and Neal is IMO the most dangerous duo in the league atm (imagine, more dangerous than Wellwood and Antro!) and we're going to need one hell of a defensive game to shut down their offense.

I'm not too worried about our offense getting chances. Even though Fleury is in net and he usually has great games against us, they are missing like half their defense (which must be tough, not that we would know ). And our offense look really good yesterday, with the Stapler leading the way and showing how it's done!

Please, a win for christmas is enough!

The Jets had better pay close attention to clogging up the middle of the ice when Pittsburgh has the puck in their own end because the Pens have been running some long stretch passes quite effectively of late, and the Jets conversely have shown themselves to be vulnerable to that a few times this season.


In the spirit of the holiday season...




GO JETS GO!!!

Juzmo = Awesome! MS Paint and a GDT - like they were made for each other.

Jets need to bring the A game tonight. The Pens are not going to roll over like the Habs.

Pittsburgh is a great test for us given the position we are in and the game we are coming off. We can't come into this one overly cocky or content based on last nights win, we've gotta come out and stick to our game plan.

Big test for the Jets, it would be so awesome to get a win and 2 points tonight!

ok that is a kick a55 GDT Juzmo and I am liking the humor allot

really tough game tonight and if we can find a way to win this one and get a clean 2 points I will put it up there with the Boston or Minnesota home ice wins. I have allot of respect for Pittsburg and they are fresh and we played last night so this will be tough. This is a measuring stick game IMHO. Can we bring real energy on back to back nights, can our D carry on their stellar play from last night against a group that will be bringing more pressure?

coming into this three game mini set (Isles, Habs, Pens) I was hoping for 4 points and I would still be satisfied with 4 but thrilled with 5

Thanks for posting the link to that article, Gump.

The quote I loved most was this one, because so many people thought given that this was relatively the same team that failed in Atlanta, that it would automatically have the same results in Winnipeg. Many upon many Jets fans (and others too) stated they believed the fans, crowd and atmosphere could indeed help be apart of changing the outcomes and results, even though this was relatively the same team.

Quote:
"[Supportive, vocal fans] play a bigger role than a lot of people would be willing to admit," Penguins left winger Matt Cooke said. "To have a crowd that's behind you all the time and is loud and intimidating, that makes it a hard place to play. That affects other teams."
Quote:
The Penguins aren't likely to make that mistake again. Good thing, too, because even though Winnipeg's roster is a lot like the one the franchise had in Atlanta, much has changed for that team.

"Playing in Canada is different for these guys," Penguins winger Pascal Dupuis said.

"They have fans who are cheering for them and they're playing for something every night. Which is the way it should be."

The Penguins won't take us for granted anymore.... This will be a hard game.

I don't discount our win against Montreal at all, because the Jets did a lot right, they kept them to the outside, they blocked shots, and breakouts were far more effective.... ALL the stuff they did poorly against the Islanders.

We need these points just as much as last night's points. I predict a real grind. Enstrom, and Antti, and Wheeler are coming to form just in time.
