from Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press,
Inch by inch, game by game, Evander Kane and Zach Bogosian are making the Winnipeg Jets their team.
They bring more will and effort to games on a consistent basis than the rest of their teammates. They are willing to lead. Now if only the rest would follow.
If all the Jets had the jam of Kane and Bogosian, this team would win far more games. Until they do, more disappointment such as Tuesday night's 3-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens will follow.
Too many of the Jets were unwilling to engage early and before the first period was barely half over it was 2-0 Montreal. The lead held and was more than enough for Carey Price to add another shutout to his resumé.
Apologists will suggest the Jets had a strong game, but for the first 10 minutes. Ridiculous. What does it matter if a team is strong once the game is virtually decided?
The Jets can't continue to post half-games or three-quarter games.
