We're now just hours away from the 2011 Kraft Hockeyville game, and both the Winnipeg Jets and Ottawa Senators have arrived here at the Mile One Centre in St. John's.
The Jets will hit the ice for their morning skate at 9 a.m. Newfoundland time (7:30 ET), while the Sens will practice at 10 a.m. From there, representatives from each club will head out to Conception Bay South to visit a school and hospital.
The game is slated to begin at 5:30 p.m. Newfoundland time (4 p.m. ET). Make sure to check back with NHL.com throughout the day for Kraft Hockeyville coverage.
It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
