★ Eric Tangradi brought plenty of sandpaper to open up space for linemates Klingberg and Eric O’Dell, and fed the first two Jets goal-scorers.
★★ Oilers blue-liner Philip Larsen fed a pretty pass to Mitch Moroz for the Oilers’ first goal, then scored the second just 23 seconds later.
★★★ Carl Klingberg is an underdog in training camp, but the IceCaps forward was a beast all over the ice, and his hustle was rewarded with a second-period goal.

Seems like Dustin Byfuglien is making a bone-crushing hit into a pre-season tradition. The big Jets defender had the crowd roaring in the first, when he threw a thundering check on Oilers winger Ryan Hamilton. In fact, Buff crushed Hamilton into the corner so hard that the gate to the ice actually pushed open, and the Oilers winger staggered off the ice. That's super dangerous -- those gates are supposed to be locked -- but Hamilton was all right.
Count on Winnipeggers to welcome any familiar face back home. During the first TV timeout (or whatever you call a timeout for a non-televised game), the crowd gave a warm ovation to new Oilers coach Dallas Eakins, who played a pair of games for the original Winnipeg Jets early in his career, was captain of the Manitoba Moose in his final professional season in 2003-04.
Winnipeg hosts Minnesota Thursday night before traveling to St. Paul for another meeting with the Wild on Saturday night. Both games start at 7 p.m.
