Winnipeg Jets promising more controlled game against Los Angeles Kings

WINNIPEG - After a 5-4 win over the Edmonton Oilers, the Winnipeg Jets say they have to play a much different kind of game if they want to beat the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings visit the MTS Centre on Friday for the Jets' home opener.

Winnipeg and Edmonton traded a lot of scoring chances last Tuesday night.

Jets coach Claude Noel and his team are promising a more patient and disciplined performance against Los Angeles.

Noel says the Jets have the speed and size to compete with the 2012 Stanley Cup champions.

But he adds they need to be patient and avoid mistakes.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
