Jets in tough in Vegas

Slim and none, and slim just left Vegas.

Three members of Winnipeg Jets are waiting for awards at the end of the year in Sin City on Wednesday, and their chances of taking home the equipment are not too big.

In the seven seasons since Jets' return, only two previous nominations have taken place: Andrew Ladd for the Messier award in 2015 and Patrik Laine for the Calder trophy as the best debutant last year.

Here's a look at this year's nominees and why they are against it.

Winnipeg Looks for Respect, on the Ice and Off It

For a short moment after the Sunday end, the decibel level dropped in Bell MTS Place, and the white-clad public of 15,321 was shocked.

The Knights are the third team in NHL history to reach the Cup final in the inaugural season, joining Toronto Arenas in 1918 and St. Louis Blues from 1968.

"As I said, it's great to win tonight and be great at being the champions of the Western Conference, but that's not why we're here."

Ryan Reaves, from Winnipeg, scored the winning goal at 13:21 of the second period, and Alex Tuch scored the first goal for the Knights.

Winnipeg Jets reminisce on historic playoff run

Less than 48 hours after the historic Winnipeg Jets playoff race came to an end, the team returned to Bell MTS Place to speak with the media on Tuesday.

"A lot of hope and expectation and everything changes in a week," said Jets captain Blake Wheeler.

"It's very difficult to swallow because we felt like we were there in every game," said goalkeeper Connor Hellebuyck.

The Jets dropped three victories before a trip to the Stanley Cup final after losing to the Golden Knights of Las Vegas in the Eastern Conference finals.

Busy offseason now looms for Winnipeg Jets

Winnipeg jets planes are dead. "The Vegas Golden Knights" shocked the world of hockey (again) by withdrawing the "Jets" in the final of the Western Conference to move to the Stanley Cup finals in their first season. This is the first time the expansion team made a round of the championship in any major North American sport since 1968 in the St. Louis Blues, although in a variety of circumstances.

The incredible victory of Vegas occurs after the Jets took off the winner of the Nashville Predators, who won the trophies of the presidents, in the second round, confirming their status as one of the best teams that the league can offer. Incredibly, the Golden Knights were better.

And the most surprising of all, that all this series was just five games.

Let's see where everything went wrong for the aircraft.

Come on, did you expect us to start somewhere else? Fleury was the biggest factor for the Golden Knights throughout his unlikely playoffs, and he was again impressive for most of the conference finals.

Saskatchewan minister hawking Jets tickets says they were for a friend

This week, the Minister of Finance of Saskatchewan Ken Shevelauff was not the first time connected with questions about tickets to the hockey game of Winnipeg Jets.

The last kerfuffle includes a photo published on Tuesday on Twitter. This shows that Cheveldayoff is trying to unload two tickets before the game of the 5th series of the Jets / Knights Western Conference playoffs.

This incident recalls more consistent disputes. Cheveldayoff was in mid-2014. Now Chevaldayoff changed its story about this incident, which became known as "Ticketgate".

Stunned Jets credit Golden Knights: ‘It was their time’

The magical playoffs of Winnipeg Jets suddenly ended.

The Golden Knights of Vegas won "Jets 2-1" in Game 5 to win the final quarter of the West in four games on Sunday at Bell MTS Place. The Jets lost the last four games of the series.

"We had a great opportunity and this team, it was their time," said Captain Jets Blake Wheeler.

"They made it very hard for us. We had to work for everything that we had, and even when we broke them, we seem to have never been able to get the momentum that we need to get this information on our terms. "

Jets have their work cut out in Vegas

Fans of Winnipeg Jets arrived in Las Vegas, reveling in the novelty of their team in the third round of the NHL playoffs and coming to the city of Sins to see it.

"We've been waiting for our whole life to be so deep in the series, and then you throw Las Vegas into it, it's nuts," Chris Kirkwood said in the shadow of T-Mobile Arena.

The Jets pulled the Vegas Golden Knights 2-1 expansion into the final of the NHL West Conference with Game 4 at T-Mobile on Friday, and the series returned to Winnipeg for Sunday's game 5.

Some Jets fans had many days to follow their team.
