2 down, 14 to go; Big Buff: “just another day in the office”…ferocious hitting leads Jets to a 4-1 win and 2-0 lead in the series. By Chuck Duboff

 

 

  • Quite simply…the best game I’ve seen Dustin Byfuglien play in the past seven years.  As dominating a performance as you could ever expect; body smashing hits, beautiful set up for Stastny’s game winner…what a Force the Big Man is!!!Big Buff
  • Hey Paul Romanuk…it’s Blake, not Mark,  Wheeler…how’d your Toronto media react if you called Matthews “Mitch”…you should apologize to Wheeler, the Jets and all its fans…and time you took this team more seriously.
    Is Wheels ever pissed off… https://twitter.com/twitter/statuses/984851384552992768
  • Not only is this team for real…they are playing with a confidence I have never seen a Jets team play with.  Even during the Jets 1.0 days of Hawerchuk, you never got the sense of mojo, confidence that this Jets team has.  They just expect to win…their last loss was that “fun one” to the Black Hawks several weeks ago…
  • We gave Adam Lowry lots of love after Game one, I think it’s time we start giving Andrew Copp the same kudos…the kid is hitting everything in sight and this past month has found his scoring touch…yet, another great draft pick by the Jets scouting department.IMG_3452
  • The Jets hitting just wore the Wild down and by the third period it was all Jets…smothering, cycling and hitting and scoring.  I haven’t seen the “hitting” stats, but I dare say the numbers would be bone crushing.https://www.nhl.com/video/byfugliens-huge-hit-on-koivu/t-297851668/c-59867403
  • Sorry Toby Enstrom…no way Morrow comes out of the lineup…he is playing really well with the Big Man; having been a first round draft pick, he is probably getting his first real shot…and taking advantage of it!!  Again, our scouts finding a depth d-man for the Jets at the trade deadline!!
  • What a party on Donald Street last night…they said there were close to 15,000 out there…and if the Jets go on the roll we are all expecting, those numbers will just get bigger and bigger.
  • Paul Stastny has really picked up his game and has been a force in the first two games; Laine and Stastny with goals last night and “fly”, with the afterburners on, was making great plays.
  • Without Devan Dubnyk in the Wild goal, that could have been an 8-1 game!!
  • I really liked that Little line, with Copp and Roslovic.
  • Speaking of Jack Roslovic…that kid just makes things happen…how many teams in the NHL could lose a Matthieu Perrault and have a player like Rosco take his spot!!  Hello scouting department!!
  • Manitoba Moose:  AHL Coach of the Year: Pascal Vincent; AHL Rookie of the Year: Mason Appleton; AHL Defenceman of the year: Sammy Niku.   WOW!!
  • Unless the Wild find some way to slow the Jets down, to nullify their hitting, this could be a really quick series.
  • It’s hard not to be excited when you read article after article after article raving about the Jets and predicting great things for this playoff season and for years to come!!
  • Seriously…how talented is Josh Morrissey…great skater and always just seems to make the right play!!  Great pick Jets scouting department!!
  • Jets are going to have to literally and figuratively weather a storm in Minnesota tomorrow night…looks like a blizzard hitting the Twin Cities…and…the first ten minutes tomorrow night will be key; Minnesota will be bringing everything they have at the start of the game…if the Jets can maintain their composure and find their speed and hitting to match the Wild intensity, they will be good!!IMG_3451
