Benny and the Jets
Entries with the tag: edmonton oilers
Sloppy. That’s the best word to describe the Winnipeg Jets’ play in a 5-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers in the only meeting between the two teams this year. The first period was a parade of turnovers – mostly by the Jets, but some by the Oilers – that, miraculously, didn’t result in a goal.
The Jets looked better in the second period, and went to the dressing room after 40 minutes with a 2-1 lead. But the Oilers scored four unanswered goals in the third that sucked the life out of the building, and if there’s one team that relies heavily on home ice advantage these days, it’s the Jets. What makes it worse? It’s the first time the Oilers have won this year after trailing going into the third period.
