WINNIPEG Danton Heinen Jersey Kids , Manitoba (AP) Now, with the Jets in the Western Conference final, the temperature is rising further.Jets merchandise is flying off shelves, downtown office workers are decked out in team jerseys and organizers must cap attendance at 20,000 for street parties on game nights.The passion surpasses that of the glory days of 40 years ago when the Jets were champions of the World Hockey Association. Stars of that team are in town this week to join the festivities.”I don’t recollect any sporting event … bringing the fans into the downtown area and into the excitement that there is today,” Joe Daley, the 1978 squad’s goalie, said before the Jets hosted Game 1 against the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday. ”I think it’s unbelievable what’s going on.”Anders Hedberg, the right wing who notched 63 goals in 1978 and later returned to his native Sweden Authentic Mitchell Marner Jersey , told The Canadian Press he’s not surprised by how fans in the NHL’s smallest market have filled the arena and the streets.”The relationship to the game is the closest here of all the teams in the National Hockey League,” he said.The street parties feature fans dressing up in white, watching on big screens next to the arena and listening to onstage entertainment.Organizers said Friday that for the rest of the playoffs, attendance will be capped and fans must get free tickets in advance if they want to get in. By Friday afternoon, some online ads were offering to resell those free tickets at $25 or more.Fans can even taste the excitement. A chocolate maker has started selling Jets-themed chocolates in the shape of pucks.The feeling has been a long time coming for Winnipeg. The Canadian Football League Blue Bombers haven’t won a championship since 1990 and the original Jets never made it this far before leaving for Phoenix in 1996.The new version of the Jets relocated from Atlanta in 2011 and was swept in the opening round in 2015, the team’s only playoff appearance before this year.”The entire city, you can really feel the energy,” said Josh Drury, who along with his wife splits time between home in Winnipeg and running a business in Las Vegas. His loyalty lies completely with the Jets.”This is really uncharted territory. … Winnipeg sports fans are kind of used to disappointment http://www.officialmapleleafsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-morgan-rielly-jersey ,” he said.Daley continued to live in Winnipeg after his playing days. He says this playoff run is great for the city.”We forget about all the shortcomings that everybody else in Canada thinks we have as a city,” he said. ”Right now, we’re No. 1 in Canada.” WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Edmonton coach Todd McLennan made no apology for his bias toward Oilers star Connor McDavid.McLennan only had to watch McDavid score twice and add two assists as the Oilers overcame a three-goal deficit to beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-4 Tuesday night on Darnell Nurse’s goal 1:25 into overtime.“He’s our captain. He’s our leader,” McLellan said of McDavid. “He’s, in my opinion, the best player on earth right now and he decided that he was going to will his team to a win.”McDavid set an NHL record by scoring or assisting on his team’s first nine goals to start a season, breaking Adam Oates’ record of seven with Detroit in 1986-87. McDavid has four goals and five assists in four games.“You know what? It’s whatever. I’m not overly proud of it,” McDavid said about the record. “I don’t think it’s a stat we should be proud of Nikita Zaitsev Jersey Kids , either.“It is what it is, but we found a way to get a goal there at the end so we don’t ever have to talk about it again.”Ty Rattie ignited the comeback when he scored 18 seconds into the third period. McDavid got his second power-play goal of the game at 2:28 to trim Winnipeg’s lead to 4-3.Jesse Puljujarvi tied it at 13:39 when a shot by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins hit the Finnish forward’s stick and went past goalie Connor Hellebuyck. Nugent-Hopkins and Leon Draisaitl each had two assists.Jets forward Adam Lowry had two goals during a three-minute span in the first period. Mark Scheifele and defenseman Ben Chiarot also scored.“I just think we shot ourselves in the foot,” Lowry said. “We started to make plays at the blue line and fed into their transition game. We were on our heels in the third.“Credit to them, they didn’t quit. They have a dynamic top line and it showed tonight.”Nurse scored the winner unassisted when he got around Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers and beat Hellebuyck.“Going into the third we could have gone two different ways, and 18 seconds in his line makes a huge play,” Nurse said about McDavid.“When you have a leader like that, everyone feeds off that. For him to be able to set the tone every single game, it’s incredible.”Hellebuyck made 30 saves for the Jets (3-2-1).Cam Talbot, playing his 200th game with the Oilers (2-2-0) Womens Patrick Marleau Jersey , stopped 29 shots.Winnipeg opened a 3-1 lead in the first period.Lowry got his first goal when he wasn’t challenged in front and sent the puck past Talbot at 4:51. Lowry then got his own rebound and his shot went under a sprawling Talbot at 7:47 to make it 2-0.McDavid connected on the power play when he cut smoothly to the front of the net and flipped a backhand past Hellebuyck at 12:49.But only 22 seconds later, Chiarot restored his team’s two-goal lead on a point shot with Patrik Laine providing the screen in front.Continuing a power play to start the second, Scheifele fired in his goal off the rebound of Laine’s one-timer to make it 4-1 at 1:02.“Yeah, 4-1 should be game over,” Jets captain Blake Wheeler said. “Our line went out, gave up one early on and gave them momentum. You’re fighting an uphill battle from there.”Winnipeg played without injured defenseman Dustin Byfuglien (lower body) for the second straight game.UP NEXTOilers: Play their home opener Thursday against Boston to begin a four-game homestand.Jets: Continue a six-game homestand, their longest of the season, Thursday against Vancouver.
