10:23 AM ET 10.19 | The Blues 4-3 win over Winnipeg also saw the Jets' top 2012 draft pick taken off on a stretcher. Defenceman Jacob Trouba missed a hit early in the second period and slammed his head into the boards, bending his neck back at an ugly angle. He didn't move on his own after he crumpled to the ice. Both benches emptied as worried players gathered around. Trouba managed a wave as fans shouted his name while he was being wheeled off. A Jets spokesman said later Trouba was taken to hospital for X-rays and was alert, communicating and moving all his limbs.

Amazing what ya gotta do to get a Jets story on here - eat an elephant, or muncha buncha Dasher. The Blitzen was off last night. Begs the question: why is the ice surface so bad at the MTS? This is about the tenth time that bumps or ruts, or just plain bad ice has blatantly affected games - in what, five or so games. Thought that this was a NY, Phoenix or Edmonton thing. Sure the weather's been warm. But really. Wot would it be like in May and June when it can get into the 80's and 90's - F that is.
