GDT: Jets. Senators. MTS Centre.

Bonjour and willkommen to the game day thread. How will the new kids on the block fare tonight? How much love of Tyler Myers is appropriate? What is up with all the Eric/Erik on the Senators? Was there a sale on Erics/Eriks somewhere and the Senators decided to snatch them all up before it was too late?

Tonight the Jets take on the Senators at home in Winnipeg before heading off on a road trip. They're had a pretty successful homestand thus far and it'll be awesome if they can end it on a high note with a shiny win.

The game can be seen on Sportsnet.

I was searching for the game preview on the Jets website to see what channel the game was being broadcast on and found this. It delights me greatly.

Okay, so there are actually only 3 Erik/Eric's on the team, but 3/20 is 15 percent. 15% of the Senators on the active roster tonight are named some form of Erik/Eric.

Here's their real line up for the night although if you knew their roster already you can probably guess based on the last name.
