Benny and the Jets

No, the Jets aren’t playing, but the anticipation surrounding tonight’s NHL regular season kickoff couldn’t be more intense in Winnipeg. With the NHL deciding to host the 2011 Molson Canadian NHL Face-off festival at The Forks - located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg - the eyes of the hockey-loving world will turn in our direction for the first of two times this weekend.
The Winnipeg Jets lost 5-1 last night against the Columbus Blue Jackets, with Evander Kane getting the franchise’s first goal in front of a meagre crowd of 8,855.
But the people of Winnipeg aren’t interested in talking about that game – in fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if many of the 15,004 on hand for last night’s pre-season home opener at the MTS Centre didn’t know there was another Winnipeg Jets game going on.
