We are the Jets. They are not. They are the Coyotes. Run Spot Run.
Lineup and predictions after the jump...
Pre-lineup Thoughts: Please please please stop pinching at the blue line, Jets D. You are not nearly nimble nor deft enough with the puck to hold the line; let's try to keep the number of the bad kind of 2-on-1s below a baker's dozen. Also, someone needs to affix nipple clamps and jolt this top line. They're close to scoring, they just need to shake the Craig Ramsay off their backs. This game, and this opponent, is the prime time to do it.
#50 Chris Mason
The "Coyotes" Pronunciation Makes No Sense
#41 Mike Smith
New Player Nickname: Jim "A.C." Slater. Too easy.
What You Should Do if You're Going to the Game: Get a picture with Claude Noel. Don't smile, and request that he doesn't smile, either (last part should be pretty easy). First Fan Shot wins something.
Prediction: 2 to 1 Jets, as Jets get their first win on a deflection off Shane Doan's Winnipeg hatin' knee. Doan crumples to the ice, at which point Buff gets down on all fours and licks up his salty salty tears. Victory is sweet, ShilDo.
