Bring it, fans

Oh, it's rare that the most entertaining moment in a game comes courtesy of the away team's goalie. Such is the magic of Ilya Bryzgalov. Not only did the colourful Wild goalie stop 24 of the Jets' shots to get the shutout and the win, but when Winnipeg fans raised up a throaty "Ilya" taunt, their longtime foe raised his gloves to call for more. "It's kind of became a good tradition every time," Bryzgalov said, of how he played with the fan chant. "Every time I play here, at the end of the third period they start cheering my name. I wanted to show them with my hands, get louder, you know? It's a good tradition."

 

Shots, boys, shots!

Look, we get the playoff dream is dead and nobody wants to get hurt in games that don't matter. Still, it's too bad the Jets couldn't have mustered up a feistier performance for fans, in their second-last home game of the season. The team managed only five shots in the entire second period. Still, they actually finished with an edge over the Wild in overall possession -- not that it amounted to much, especially after going zip-for-four on the power play.

 

500 for Slats

Jim Slater marked his 500th NHL game on Monday night, all of them with the franchise that became the Winnipeg Jets. The 2002 Atlanta Thrashers draft pick played 8:53 minutes in the tilt and blocked a couple of shots. Before the game, head coach Paul Maurice noted that one of the previous teams he coached craved the hard-working forward, and wanted to get him. "I don't think that's tampering now, that I'm coaching the guy?" Maurice quipped.

Seriously though, Maurice had nothing but good things to say about Slater, one of the few fourth-line forwards to stick in the league as long as he has. "He's been a guy that's become so valuable with his work ethic, his being a great teammate, his faceoff prowess, that he's done something a little bit unusual," Maurice said.
