The Winnipeg Jets and Montreal Canadiens are taking part in once more. After a masterful sport towards the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday, the Jets regarded to select up the place they left off on Monday apart from the turnovers. I like a great turnover. They’re scrumptious baked good, however they’re horrible in hockey. The Jets missed that memo and gave the Habs likelihood after likelihood by serving the puck up on a platter.
Turnovers are an indication of being ill-prepared. Bodily they have been there, however their psychological exhaustion got here out of their turnovers. Might they’ve executed one thing totally different? I don’t really know. Their psychological fatigue was apparent and sort of unsurprising. This yr has been mentally exhausting. It has been roughly a yr since every part was shut down. It has been a protracted yr for anybody functioning with a coronary heart and off video games are a bi-product of that. Nonetheless, it stands out.
It additionally stands out that the Jets defence just isn’t ok. It appears like Kevin Cheveldayoff is open to calling up some younger defenders to shore issues up as an alternative of constructing a commerce which might in all probability be a good suggestion. Ville Heinola and Dylan Samberg may each work and whereas Mattias Ekholm is The Dream, he could be too dear to commerce for which is okay. The Jets simply want somebody on defence to assist carry the load.
After tomorrow night time’s sport we enter Late Sport Time so be ready for lots of complaints.
