For some reason, the Jets only win when they are at home. And they’re winning now. Chadd is in the upper deck for this one; happy to be at the game because it’s pretty hard to get tickets. Home games are always sold out, so you gotta know someone who has extra or is willing to sell theirs. Lots of fights tonight, but the excitement at any game in the MTS Centre practically vibrates the ice.
I was never a hockey fan, but all of a sudden, Eastern Conference standings take on a new meaning. Interviews with the team after a game are funny in the “hockey speak” that you translate through; fun to see the guys grinning without the helmets on. Doubtful that we’ll make the playoffs, but still possible. Twelve more games.
We win this one…and I finally see Coach Noel smile. Repeatedly.
