“I’m very proud of our captain, the fight that he had,” Colorado coach Patrick Roy said. “I’m not saying it was for fighting. But he showed a lot of character out there. And we cannot lose a game where your captain does that. We have to find a way to win.”

Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane will have a hearing Monday with the NHL Department of Player Safety for a check from behind on Anaheim Ducks defenseman Clayton Stoner during a game Sunday at MTS Centre.
Kane hit Stoner from behind at 19:49 of the second period. He was assessed a major penalty for checking from behind and a game misconduct. Stoner was not injured on the play.
Anaheim won the game 4-3 in overtime.
The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: checking from behind. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.
You will see Beleskey's stick touch the left leg/toe of the goalie, not sure if there was enough call a two minute penalty for goalie interference or even waive off the goal.

from Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press,
Late in Thursday's first period at PNC Arena, most of it being run by the visiting Winnipeg Jets, a disgruntled Carolina Hurricanes' fan in Section 328 bellowed: "For gawd's sake, these are the Atlanta Thrashers."
And not for a while in this 2014-15 NHL season.
The Jets stayed with their buckle-down style of game against the Canes and scored a 3-1 victory to stop the home team's six-game (5-0-1) points streak before a sparse crowd announced as 10,005.
It was another tight contest -- Winnipeg owns the distinction today of having played the lowest-scoring games in the NHL so far this season -- won by a pair of deflection goals by Blake Wheeler and a late empty-netter by Michael Frolik, making a winner of backup goalie Michael Hutchinson.
The visitors dictated the style and earned the two points to make their mark 7-1-2 in the last 10 games. The amazing part of that is that in the process, the Jets have scored 18 goals and given up 14.
