Winnipeg Jets in Europe - October 4, 2012

There were two games of note to the Winnipeg Jets played in Europe today, both in the KHL.

  • First off we had Sibir Novosibirsk hosting Metallurg Magnitogorsk which is coached by Paul Maurice and has names such as Evgeni Malkin, Sergei Gonchar, Oleg Tverdovsky (former Jet 1.0), Cal O`Reilly and Nikolai Kulemin on the roster.

    On Sibir...there are 4 guys with the initials A.K. and not a single one of them took number 47. Embarassing.

    Speaking of embarassing, someone should tell Magnitogorsk Coach Maurice that having a gameplan other than "pass it to Malkin" would likely score more goals and be more entertaining. The Russian had 9 shots on goal, and none of them went in. Luckily for Malkin, 2 goals did manage to go in compared to the 1 for Sibir and that would leave Magnitogorsk the victors in this game. Despite being on the losing side, Arturs Kulda would end up with a shot and a +1 rating in the game.

  • In the next game of note, Evander Kane, Tim Stapleton and the rest of Dinamo Minsk failed to find the back of the net in a game against visiting Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod, who would score 3 on the night. The biggest impact a Jet had on the scoreboard was Evander Kane getting tossed from the game when he got himself a 10 minute misconduct to go along with a 2 minute cross checking penalty. Kane would finish with 5 shots on goal to go along with those 12 penalty minutes in 16:29 of ice time. Timmy Staples would end up with a -1 rating and 3 shots on goal in 15:59
