Postgame: Puljujarvi Powers Oilers Past Jets

The Edmonton Oilers took on the Winnipeg Jets at Rogers Place tonight, extending their preseason winning streak to 5-0 with an impressive 6-2 victory over the Jets. The Jets grabbed an early lead with forward Michael Spacek popping in a power play goal off the backhand at 4:51 in the first period. A few minutes later, Oilers free agent acquisition Jussi Jokinen went hard to the front of the net and tipped in a point shot from defenceman Matt Benning to tie the game at one a piece.

Puljujarvi lights it up in Oilers pre-season win over Jets

Don’t forget about me. If Jesse Puljujarvi wasn’t saying it, he must have been thinking it after being reduced to spectator status for all but one of the Edmonton Oilers’ first four pre-season games.
