WINNIPEG Womens Samuel Girard Jersey , Manitoba (AP) Not many people, if any, expected the Winnipeg Jets to have one of the NHL’s best teams this season.Vegas Golden Knights assistant general manager Kelly McCrimmon was one of the few.The former owner, general manager and coach of the Western Hockey League’s Brandon Wheat Kings said he watched Winnipeg play 20 times last season, giving him a peek at what was to come.”It was pretty easy to see that it was going to happen,” McCrimmon said. ”This year, certainly it has.”The Jets earned 114 points during the regular season, trailing only Nashville.Winnipeg advanced in the playoffs for the first time since moving from Atlanta in 2011. The Jets lost only once to Minnesota in the first round, and eliminated the top-seeded Predators on the road in Game 7 of the second round.The Jets clearly looked like the better team in a 4-2 win Saturday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals against Vegas, the darling of the NHL in its expansion season.Suddenly, Winnipeg might have the best chance of winning the Stanley Cup, especially if it wins Game 2 at home on Monday night.The Jets have a pair of fantastic lines up front along with two solid ones and a strong group of defenseman led by Dustin Byfuglien , and 24-year-old Connor Hellebuyck has been one of the best goaltenders this postseason.How has a franchise Semyon Varlamov Jersey , which has largely been an afterthought in the league, gone from finishing fifth or worse in its division the previous three seasons to having one of the world’s best hockey teams?”They put on a clinic in drafting and developing,” McCrimmon said. ”Along with that, great patience and leadership from Mark Chipman as an owner.”What they did takes time.”Unlike other NHL teams, which fire general managers and coaches if they don’t quickly have success, the Jets have allowed general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff to build a championship contender since hiring him in 2011 when they left Atlanta. He was just 20 games above .500 in his first five seasons as Winnipeg’s GM, and its only previous postseason appearance in 2015 lasted just four games against Anaheim.Coach Paul Maurice, likewise, was afforded the opportunity to lead the team for fourth-plus season this year. He made the most of it by helping the Jets go 52-20-10 during the regular season.But ultimately, it comes down to having talented, unselfish players, and the Jets have plenty.When Winnipeg had high draft picks, as it often did as a struggling team http://www.avalancheshoponline.com/authent...i-boikov-jersey , it didn’t miss.Patrik Laine, a 20-year-old winger, was drafted second overall two years ago and is one of the league’s best young players. He had 70 points in the regular season and scored his fourth goal of the playoffs in Game 1.Mark Scheifele, selected No. 7 overall in 2011, leads all postseason scorers with 12 goals and has averaged more than a point per game the past two seasons. On the back end, defenseman Jacob Trouba has been exceptional in the playoffs as the franchise hoped he would be eventually after taking him No. 9 overall in 2012.The Jets have also hit on some late-round picks, including Hellebuyck, whom they took No. 130 overall six years ago.”Hit home run after home run in the draft,” captain Blake Wheeler said . ”A lot of our marquee players are guys we drafted and have taken huge steps in the last year or two to be impact players.”Winnipeg didn’t draft its best player, Wheeler, but the franchise acquired him from Boston in a trade while it was in Atlanta in 2011 and has built around him. That same year, the Thrashers took advantage of Chicago’s need to get rid of salaries by dealing for Byfuglien.And like the front office and coaching staff, it seems the players were patient about the process of slowly building a winner when the team moved to Canada.”We weren’t coming here expecting to blow the doors off right away Womens Sven Andrighetto Jersey ,” Byfuglien said. ”We knew it was going to be a process of building and finding the right group of guys.”But when it looked like the Jets had a shot to contend this season, they were willing to give up a first-round pick to St. Louis just before the trade deadline to add veteran center Paul Stastny to chase the Stanley Cup. And now, they might just be the team to beat.”The story of Winnipeg and the Jets, for far too long, has been about being underdogs and underrated,” Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman said. ”But not anymore.”—Follow Larry Lage at https://twitter.com/larrylage— VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Elias Pettersson’s teammates couldn’t quite find the words to describe how the rookie played on Friday night.The 19-year-old had two goals and three assists, scoring the tying goal in the final minute of regulation and then setting up Derrick Pouliot’s winner late in overtime to lift the Vancouver Canucks to a 7-6 win over the Colorado Avalanche.“Wow,” Vancouver’s Bo Horvat said when asked about Pettersson’s performance.The Swedish center downplayed what was perhaps his most impressive play of the night — a jaw-dropping bank pass that sent the puck off the end boards right on the tape of Brock Boeser’s stick, setting the right wing up for a go-ahead goal early in the second period.“I was just trying to make a play and it worked out,” said Pettersson, who’s now the youngest player in Canucks history to have at least five points in a regular-season game.The play was simply the latest in a string of highlight-reel worthy moves that earned the teen the NHL’s rookie of the month nod for October.Canucks coach Travis Green said he wasn’t sure how to describe the way Pettersson has played through nine NHL games.“We knew he was supposed to be a pretty good player. And he’s been all of that,” he said.Petterson’s second goal of the night tied the score with 36 seconds remaining in regulation — the game’s sixth tie — just 1:01 after Nathan MacKinnon second of the game gave the Avalanche a 6-5 lead.“I got goosebumps when we tied the game late Tyson Barrie Jersey ,” Pettersson said.Pouliot then took a pass from Pouliot on the right side of the goal and sent a shot that hit the crossbar and deflected off defenseman Gabriel Bourque and in with 22 seconds left on the clock in overtime.Boeser scored twice, and Loui Eriksson and Markus Granlund had the other goals for Vancouver in a game neither team lead by more than one goal. Jacob Markstrom stopped 23 shots.Sheldon Dries, Ian Cole, Alexander Kerfoot and Nikita Zadorov also scored for Colorado, and NHL points leader Mikko Rantanen had three assists. Philipp Grubauer finished with 30 saves.The Avalanche completed an 0-2-1 road trip, losing each game by one goal — including a 6-5 defeat at Calgary on Thursday night after giving up a 4-1 lead.“It’s been a weird seven periods,” Grubauer said. “It wasn’t the best road trip, to be sure. We’ll need to keep working, if we’re smart as a team we’ll learn from this road trip, learn from our mistakes.”Green had no complaints after the Canucks’ third straight win.“Wow. What a night. Seems like a lot of ups and downs. That was a fun game to coach,” he said. “That was a hell of a win.”Zadorov gave Colorado a 5-4 lead 1:30 into the third period with first of the season.Granlund responded for the Canucks on a power play just past the midpoint of the period. Vancouver right wing Nikolay Goldobin struggled to hang on to the puck in front of the net, but found a way to dish it to Granlund, who popped it in past Grubauer.The teams combined for seven goals in the second period Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey , with Dries starting the flurry 1:38 in as he redirected a shot from Kerfoot into the net to tie the score 1-1.Boeser got his second of the night at 5:18 on that nifty pass from Pettersson to put Vancouver back ahead. Just 50 seconds, Cole tied it as he wound up from the blue line and put a shot in the top right corner of the net.Eriksson put Vancouver ahead 3-2 at 8:47, settling a bouncing puck and popping it past Grubauer for his first. MacKinnon tied things up again less than two minutes later, scoring off a give-and-go with Rantanen.Kerfoot gave Colorado its first lead with 7:24 left in the middle period, splitting the Vancouver defense and firing a wrist shot past Markstrom.Pettersson tied it 4-4 as he scooped up a rebound at the top of the crease and poked it in with about 2 1/2 minutes left in the period.Boeser got the Canucks on the board just 58 seconds into the game after Pettersson slid him a long pass across the ice. The right wing got the puck on his tape and flipped a shot past Grubauer.NOTES: Four players tallied their first goals of the season on Friday. Zadorov and Cole for the Avs, and Eriksson and Pouliot for the Canucks. … Pettersson now has nine goals and six assists in nine games. He’s the 16th player in the league to score nine or more goals through the first nine games of his career, and just the sixth to complete the feat outside of the league’s inaugural season.UP NEXTAvalanche: Host Nashville on Wednesday night.Canucks: Visit Detroit on Tuesday night to open a six-game trip.
