GDT: Winnipeg Jets vs Minnesota Wild

New, comments

After a well deserved 4 days off from game play, the Jets came out flying against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night. After fighting back in the third period to tie the game, a sneaky goal early in overtime clinched it for the opponents, but still gave the Jets one point for the ever important standings.  Today, the Jets face the Minnesota Wild, and by all accounts, this will be as tough a match as any.  Lets hope the Jets stop these vikings from plundering and pillaging two points in river city!
