Expansion primer: Winnipeg Jets

  Expansion primer: Winnipeg Jets At look at Winnipeg's options ahead of the expansion draft.The Jets had a bit of an up-and-down season as they went from battling for the top spot in the North Division to backing into the playoffs. Then they went from sweeping Edmonton in the first round to being swept by Montreal in the second round. GM Kevin Cheveldayoff will have some decisions to make this summer as a result, including a couple of calls to make in terms of their expansion planning. In the Vegas draft, they traded down 11 spots in the first round to secure the protections of Marko Dano and Toby Enstrom.

About Last Night: Habs send Leafs packing, restore balance in universe

  About Last Night: Habs send Leafs packing, restore balance in universe There were times during the regular season where the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens didn’t even look like they were playing in the same league. Heck, there were moments in THIS SERIES where the Leafs looked like they were in a different class. The high-flying, precise passing offensive juggernaut Leafs, who tore through the North Division with ease, were not only supposed to demolish the lowly, depleted Canadiens, it was pre-ordained. It seemed all but a certainty after the Leafs jumped out to a commanding series lead 3-1, but as they’ve been doing since 2004, Toronto couldn’t finish the job.

About Last Night: Scheifele cheap shot overshadows Game 1 win

  About Last Night: Scheifele cheap shot overshadows Game 1 win The Montreal Canadiens handled the Winnipeg Jets with relative ease in their 5-3 Game 1 win on Wednesday at the Bell MTS Centre, but it was an unnecessary late hit by Jets forward Mark Scheifele on Jake Evans with under a minute left that cast a pall over the night. I won’t post what Scheifele did here. It was vindictive and gratuitous. Starting from the other end of the ice, Scheifele charged at Evans, who had just scored in the empty net. Evans fell to the ice and stayed there before he was removed via stretcher. After the game, Evans was being evaluated but not taken to hospital. In the postgame presser, coach Dominique Ducharme called the hit “vicious.
