The Jets mid-November home stand resulted in a 3-game home winning streak against division rivals against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Washington Capitals and the Philadelphia Flyers at the MTS Centre. The Capitals visit marked the first time many Winnipeg fans were able to watch Alex Ovechkin, captain of the Washington Capitals who is known for brilliant on-ice moves and dazzling goals.
Unlike their epic road trip earlier in November, the Winnipeg Jets went out on a relatively short road trip for three games against the Washington Capitals (3-4 loss in OT), Carolina Hurricanes (3-1 win) and Boston Bruins (2-4 loss). Closing out their games in November, the Winnipeg Jets lost to the Ottawa Senators in a 6-4 loss at MTS Centre last Tuesday. This is the second of four meetings between the Ottawa Senators.
December is going to be one epic home stand for the Winnipeg Jets. They play twelve of fourteen games at MTS Centre in December with the Phoenix Coyotes visiting on December 1st. The Winnipeg Jets will play host to the visiting Anaheim Ducks and the return of former Winnipeg Jets rookie superstar, Teemu Selanne.
Winnipeg Jets License Plates
Following the success last summer with the Winnipeg Blue Bomber license plates, Manitobans will be able to sport Winnipeg Jets license plates starting December 12th. There will be a total of 20,000 license plates available and more if the demand is there.
The Winnipeg Jets unveiled their new specialty license plates to the public last month and will begin selling them through all Manitoba Autopac brokers for $70. Part of the fee, $30 will go towards the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation and the remaining will be shared by the province and MPI.
