10:05 PM EST. OT included. Now what? After a revolving door of goaltenders ever since they entered the league as the Atlanta Thrashers way back when, the now Winnipeg Jets went out and signed Steve Mason to solve their issues. The Jets savior (Mason) lasted one period against the Maple Leafs on Wednesday before being yanked in favor of Connor Hellebucyk. When you have a bunch of idiots running a franchise, success will never come. While the Maple Leafs have picked up Curtis McElhinney and Calvin Pickard for virtually nothing over the last six months (both are 100 times better than Mason), the Jets were hunting down Steve Mason, perhaps the most overpaid goaltender in NHL history that has maybe 25 good games over his 464 career starts. The Jets dominated the Maple Leafs in the first period on Wednesday night but then over the course of 2:38 late in that period, Steve Mason was tagged for three goals and the Jets were once again down by a large margin, which is something they’re accustomed to. In the year 2058, Coach Paul Maurice still won’t stick to one goaltender and ride him out. He’ll continue to revolve them until all three have lost whatever little confidence they did have. The Winnipeg Jets are loaded with offensive talent that are going to have to win games 6-5 or 8-4. The Flames can score goals too.
We’re very focused on going over these totals until the market adjusts. We went 1-2 last night but Columbus had a 5-0 lead over the Islanders after two and all we needed was one more goal. It never came but we’re seeing a lot of penalties and scoring chances and we’ll continue to attack totals that are too low. This is one of those.
