Heritage Classic shined bright despite game delay

Jets feel spotlight on Winnipeg enhanced community

by Tim Campbell @TimNHL / NHL.com Staff Writer

WINNIPEG -- Sunshine was a big part of hosting the 2016 Tim Hortons Heritage Classic for the Winnipeg Jets.

It was too sunny in the early afternoon at Investors Group Field on Sunday and concerns over glare and the possible effect on the ice resulted a two-hour delay in the start of the first of four outdoor games this season.

Following their 3-0 defeat by the Edmonton Oilers, the Jets said the memories of the Heritage Classic will remain bright despite the result.

Oilers finally on right track

After win against Jets in Heritage Classic, Edmonton appears to have turned corner

by Arpon Basu @ArponBasu / LNH.com Senior Managing Editor

WINNIPEG -- The Edmonton Oilers did something we are not accustomed to seeing them do entering the third period with a 3-0 lead in the 2016 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic on Sunday.

They locked down a win. And they locked it down hard.

The Oilers limited the Winnipeg Jets to two shots on goal over the first 13 minutes of the third period, keeping the puck in the offensive end more often than not and had 10 shots on Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck over those 13 minutes.

"I think in the past if we were up 3-0 on a team like that, we're not just giving up two shots on net," Oilers center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins said. "It's definitely a good sign. We didn't just shut things down in our own end, we put some more pressure on them, had some power-play chances and of course didn't give them too much in our zone. It's definitely a good sign and something we need to keep building on and being consistent on."

Mark Letestu has moment at Heritage Classic

Oilers forward scores shorthanded goal on outdoor stage

by Nicholas J. Cotsonika @cotsonika / NHL.com Columnist

WINNIPEG -- Mark Letestu grew up in Elk Point, Alberta, a town about 2 1/2 hours northeast of Edmonton. He learned to play hockey in a frozen, flooded garden in his backyard, shooting at a piece of plywood, imagining himself as a member of the Montreal Canadiens, and played shinny under the lights late into the night at an outdoor rink by a Windsor Salt plant in nearby Lindbergh, Alberta, a place so small if you blink, you miss it.

"Outdoor hockey," Letestu said, "seems to be a part of every young Canadian kid's learning of the game."

Now here he was Sunday in the 2016 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic, an outdoor game designed to celebrate and romanticize those roots, sparking a 3-0 win for the Edmonton Oilers against the Winnipeg Jets before 33,240 at Investors Group Field. These events take regular-season NHL games and turn them into spectacles, creating moments to remember for fans and players alike, moments like this.

Oilers shine in Heritage Classic

Edmonton takes full advantage of sun delay to prepare for outdoor win against Jets

by Dave Stubbs @Dave_Stubbs / NHL.com Columnist

WINNIPEG -- It's not uncommon for Canadians on the prairies to shovel snow off their Jack O'Lanterns in late October. So it was a little out of the ordinary Sunday that the start of the 2016 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic was delayed by … good weather.

Just short of two hours after the 3 p.m. ET scheduled puck drop, a radiant sun had finally cooperated by moving far enough around the west side of Investors Group Field to throw almost complete shade across the rink.

And then the Winnipeg Jets and Edmonton Oilers got down to business, with the visitors skating into the sunset with a 3-0 win before 33,240 fans.
