Kyle Connor scores twice, Jets beat Oilers 4-2 to move into wild-card spot

  Kyle Connor scores twice, Jets beat Oilers 4-2 to move into wild-card spot EDMONTON — The night started normally for the Winnipeg Jets and Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday. Then, things quickly changed. Kyle Connor had a pair of third-period goals as the Jets beat the Oilers 4-2 in a game that switched its tone after the first period when the players learned that the NBA was suspending its season due to the novel coronavirus situation. “It was a weird game, we had some pretty awesome efforts at our goal line to keep pucks out,” Jets captain Blake Wheeler said. “Our goalie was really good again, and I think we just kind of stayed with it and allowed the game to evolve and we were able to get some opportunities that we were able to capitalize on.

Let no one say Connor McDavid is dogging it during the NHL's hiatus.

The Edmonton Oilers superstar shared a video Thursday in which he showed off an unconventional workout routine, doing bodyweight squats with his rather large pup named Lenny.

Lenny made an appearance alongside his best friend last week (albeit in a less active role) when McDavid offered well wishes to fans amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The dynamic forward always comes to camp in shape, but if he keeps using Lenny for body squats, he's going to be downright gigantic by the time hockey comes back.

No ice, big problem: Nothing mimics skating for NHL players .
Taking ice away from NHL players has caused some to resort to desperate measures. New York Islanders captain Anders Lee bought a Peloton. Anaheim defenceman Josh Manson wants a pair of roller blades. League leading scorer Leon Draisaitl of Edmonton stickhandles around his dog. Whatever works. “You’re kind of going back to that ‘Rocky’ mentality where you’re doing push-ups and sit-ups and punching the cow,” Columbus forward Nick Foligno said. NHL players are running, biking and trying to stay in shape in case the season resumes after being put on pause because of the coronavirus pandemic.
