Following a six-day break in between games, the Winnipeg Jets set off on a brief road trip Thursday with back to back matchups in Pittsburgh and Columbus. The Jets picked up a single point on each stop, as the games extended to extra time before ending in the home team's favour both nights.
The Jets returned to Winnipeg over the weekend and were hungry for revenge as they hosted the Penguins on Sunday night for a rematch.
The game served to be a memorable night for many involved, with Winnipeg securing a 7-1 win over the reigning Stanley Cup champions.
Blake Wheeler secured his first hat trick as a Jet and the second of his career by scoring three in the first, while Brendan Lemieux made his mark in the NHL, picking up his first career goal.
Wheeler, Lemieux and others all took to social media to celebrate the big night!
