The Jets were scored upon first three straight times this week. Their record in those games? A crisp 3-0. It's a sign some character is starting to take hold.
If there was a grade for Winnipeg's puck management on Sunday night, it might have been a D, or a C at best. "You're going to get these nights," said coach Claude Noel. "But we found a way to get it done."
"ï"ï UP NEXT:
The Jets begin a three-game week on the road with a contest at Montreal's Bell Centre on Tuesday night, 6:30 p.m., TSNJets, TSN1290.
