The last Jets 1.0 victory I witnessed in person was on a Saturday in December vs New Jersey (Dec. 29, 1995). The first Jets 2.0 victory I witnessed in person was on a Saturday night in December vs New Jersey (Dec. 3, 2011).
Who Holds The Record For Fastest Two Goals In An NHL Game?
This amazing record was first achieved back in 1931, only to be repeated only [sic] in 1995. The first hockey player to score the fastest two goals in an NHL game was Nels Stewart. They were only 4 seconds apart. The date was January 3rd 1931 and the lethal sniper was playing center for the Montreal Maroons.
Stewart’s record has not yet been beaten. But, it has been matched! The player that matched it was Deron Quint, some 64 years later! The defenseman, not known for his scoring prowess, scored 2 goals within 4 seconds as an NHL rookie playing for the Winnipeg Jets in the 1995-96 season.
Does anyone else have any old 1.0 Jets games on VHS? I taped a few of their last games knowing that they were almost done. I've got Calgary at Winnipeg on Hockey Night in Canada.
Also Curt Keilback's last ever Jets broadcast and the last regular season home game against Los Angeles although I accidentally taped over the first period. This is the game where the Jets clinched the playoffs and Tkachuk scores his 50th with one second left.
I also have their two wins against Detroit in the playoffs.
Didn't keep the final game though. Too painful.
I'm only just watching these again since the original broadcast.
