Teams: Winnipeg Jets vs. Philadelphia Flyer
Result: 9-8, Jets
MVPs: Nik Antropov, Tanner Glass, Daniel Briere
The Jets are a young team in the NHL, but the franchise has refused to give in to its struggles and difficulties, even when they're the worst team in the league. Their fighting spirit is admirable, and suggests that the Jets have much more life than their record might signal. Even from their first season, we saw hints of this talent, specifically when the team played the Philadelphia Flyers in one of the highest scoring games in NHL history. Taking the game by a score of 9-8, Winnipeg's goals were scored by nine different players, suggesting considerable depth in the roster. Though they twice surrendered four-goal leads, what matters is that the Jets came away with the victory here.
