Edmonton Oilers 2 Winnipeg Jets 1 – The game ended a stretch of six games in 10 days for the Jets who will now get a couple of days off before closing out the pre-season schedule with a back-to-back series with the Boston Bruins. Games will be Thursday at MTS Centre (TSN, TSN 1290), and Friday in Saskatoon (TSN 1290). Special teams were the story in Edmonton. They did not decide the outcome, but very much disrupted any flow the teams tried to create. At the end of the night each team was zero for seven on the power play, or if you prefer a perfect seven for seven on the penalty kill. Chris Thorburn in his first pre-season game gave the Jets a 1-0 lead late in the first, a sharp angle shot that went off the blocker of Devan Dubnyk and in. Second period goals by Jesse Joensuu and Will Acton gave the Oilers the lead and despite the Jets outshooting the Oilers 12-4 in the third, Dubnyk made a number of very good saves to preserve the win for Edmonton. Eddie Pasquale put in another solid performance for Winnipeg, stopping 21 of 23 shots. The Jets have to be very pleased with Pasquale, both in this game and the game he played in Belleville against Washington on Sept. 14. Adam Lowry and Andrew Gordon were both healthy enough to get into their first pre-season action, and for big Lowry it was his first-ever NHL game. He was physical and drew praise from head coach Claude Noel. "He was really good for a guy that hasnt played at this level. He was strong on the puck, strong on his feet." Lowry led all players in the hit department with seven. As for the game, Noel offered that there was "a lot of special team play. Penalty kill was good, but no puck movement on the power play. We need to get more regulars in the lineup the last two games, but at the same time make sure our guys are healthy for the start of the season." Zach Bogosian played over 21 minutes but missed some shifts for what Noel termed "precautionary" reasons. Evander Kane and Olli Jokinen each had six shots on goal while Kane also had five hits. The Jets are now 1-3-2 in the pre-season with the two games against Boston yet to come. Wholesale China Shoes Free Shipping .
