WINNIPEG Vancouver Canucks Hats Womens , Manitoba — It doesn’t have the cache that it did a few years ago, but the battle of Winnipeg Jets 1.0 vs. Winnipeg Jets 2.0 figures to be fierce anyway.As happy as Winnipeggers are that NHL hockey returned to their city in 2011, they are still bitter and upset about the circumstances that caused their beloved team to move south to the Arizona desert back in 1996 and be renamed the Phoenix Coyotes.One renaming later — replacing ‘Phoenix’ with ‘Arizona’ — hasn’t dulled the enthusiasm of Jets fans rooting against their former team. (An exception used to be made for Shane Doan, the last remaining member of Jets 1.0 on the Coyotes, who retired in the spring of 2017.)Article continues below ...The Jets are looking to build on their 4-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday as they start the back end of a six-game homestand on Saturday. Defenseman Dustin Byfuglien made a triumphant return to the lineup in that game, scoring a goal and assisting on two more after missing a pair of contests in which his often terrifying physical presence was sorely missed.While hardly terrorizing the league, the Jets are 4-2-1 and appear to be clicking on at least some cylinders – they scored three goals in the third period on Thursday – just a couple of games after some absolutely dreadful play, including blowing a 4-1 lead and losing to Edmonton on Tuesday. Some of the best news involves much-maligned center Bryan Little Custom Vancouver Canucks Jerseys , who scored his second game-winning goal of the season – and week – against Vancouver and added an assist.“After that last game we were pretty hungry in the third period,” Little said in a post-game scrum. “It was our best period. Once we got that go-ahead goal it seemed like we turned it up even more. That’s what you need. That’s what we were looking to do.”At the other end of the ice, Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck finished with 26 saves.The Coyotes come to town on the heels of an impressive 4-1 road victory over the Chicago Blackhawks, a win that improved their record to 2-4-0. Center Vinnie Hinostroza led the way with a pair of goals, his first two in his hometown since being traded this past summer.He was quick to share the credit with left winger Lawson Crouse, who got the Coyotes on the board in the first period.“That was our first 5-on-5 goal of the season, so [Crouse] and [center Clayton Keller] made a great play there and it was nice to see them score and it kind of got our team going,” he said in a post-game scrum at his locker.The Jets made one roster move www.jetsshoppro.com , sending rookie winger Kristian Vesalainen down to the Manitoba Moose to get some much-needed playing time. The young Finn first round draft pick had one assist in five games playing primarily on the fourth line, but he’ll play at the top of the line-up in two weekend games. WASHINGTON (AP) Sergei Bobrovsky looked as poised facing 58 shots as he did before the game when he calmly walked down the hallway in a buttoned-up beige trenchcoat.On the ice, Bobrovsky stood out even more. The goaltender with a history of playoff struggles looked like his two-time Vezina Trophy-winning self in making 54 saves as the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Washington Capitals 5-4 on Sunday night on Matt Calvert’s overtime winner to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round playoff series.”He’s our best player and he was our best player by a mile tonight,” said Calvert, whose one-handed rebound 12:22 into overtime sent the Blue Jackets into a frenzy. ”It makes us confident. When you’ve got him making up for your mistakes, it’s always good. He’s been doing it all season.”The playoff version of Bobrovsky of years past was a confounding nightmare compared to his elite play during the regular season: 3-10 with a 3.63 goals-against average and .887 save percentage. Through two games this year, the second of which coach John Tortorella called ”one of the best goaltending performances” he has seen, the reserved Russian has stopped 81 of 88 shots to send Columbus home for Game 3 Tuesday in a place it’s never been before.The Blue Jackets had never led a playoff series until Thursday night. With ”Bob” locked in like never before in the Stanley Cup playoffs Winnipeg Jets T-Shirts Womens , they’re two victories away from advancing to the second round for the first time in franchise history.”I would say your career is a journey and you learn some things here and there,” Bobrovsky said. ”It doesn’t matter what’s in the past. When we’re gonna play third game, it doesn’t matter what happen tonight. Each moment is huge right now, and you just have to be ready.”Columbus appears ready for anything against an experienced opponent with a history of playoff disappointments that has now blown two-goal leads in consecutive games. Just like in Game 1 when charging and tripping calls on Tom Wilson and Andre Burakovsky cost the Capitals, they were done in by penalties on Wilson and Devante Smith-Pelly that led to goals by Cam Atkinson and Zach Werenski.Alex Ovechkin scored twice on the power play and T.J. Oshie tied it with 3:35 left to give Washington a chance. When Philipp Grubauer was pulled for allowing four goals on 22 shots, Braden Holtby made seven saves, but now the Metropolitan Division champions are in a hole only 49 of 361 teams (13.6 percent) have dug out of to win a best-of-seven series.”Right now in hard position, but it’s going to be fun when we bounce back and … tie the series Winnipeg Jets Hoodies Womens ,” Ovechkin said.Coach Barry Trotz, who said he’d let his decision on who starts Game 3 simmer, added that the Capitals are ”not going away.” Through two games, the Blue Jackets have shown they aren’t, either.Penalty trouble almost cost the Blue Jackets as much as the Capitals, but they got to leave celebrating after Calvert’s OT goal held up to an offside review by the NHL situation room. Replays showed Calvert was just onside before scoring to make the Blue Jackets just the fifth team in NHL history to overcome a multi-goal deficit to win the first two games of a playoff series.”Luckily, I got the rebound, had one hand on my stick and the rest is history Winnipeg Jets Hats Womens ,” Calvert said. ”Two games in overtime, that can really crush a team.”History says Calvert is right. The Capitals are the sixth team to lose Games 1 and 2 of a best-of-seven series in overtime, and the previous five have all lost.NOTES: Columbus forward Josh Anderson scored after being ejected from Game 1 for boarding Washington’s Michal Kempny. … Columbus improved to 4-1 all-time in playoff overtime games. … Linesman Steve Barton had to be helped off the ice late in the first period after clipping skates with Anderson and going down clutching his left knee. On site as the standby official, mid-amateur golfer/referee Garrett Rank replaced Barton as the second linesman. … Columbus C Alexander Wennberg was out after taking a hit to the head from Wilson in Game 1. Coach John Tortorella only called Wennberg ”day-to-day” with an upper-body injury. … Capitals F Jakub Vrana was a healthy scratch after recording an assist and committing two turnovers in 6:58 of ice time in Game 1.—
