Winnipeg saw their NHL team win for the first time since April 26, 1996 last night, defeating the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1. After watching the first three games, it seemed like it was never going to happen, but finally the Jets prevailed; and better yet, it was in our own barn.
Kyle Wellwood started the night off on a very high note, scoring just eight seconds into the game, tying the an Atlanta Thrashers/Winnipeg Jets franchise record for the fastest goal scored in a game. Tanner Glass deposited the second, and game-winning goal for the Winnipeg. The Jets also got a glimpse of what Ondrej Pavelec is really capable of as he stopped 28 Pittsburgh shots in the victory.
