With a busy pre-season schedule in the books, the Winnipeg Jets took to the ice in Edmonton on Tuesday to start the 2013-14 NHL season. Torrey Smith Jersey . The last time the Jets played a regular season game in this city was March of 1996. It also marked the first time since their return to the NHL that the Jets started on the road. Going into this season, the Jets want to be a better defensive team and a tougher team to play against. Special teams also a concern. All areas that need to be improved for the Jets to make the playoffs. A great atmosphere in Edmonton for the season opener, but it was a slow start to the game as both teams seemed nervous. The hybrid icing resulted in a number of stoppages before two Oilers in their first NHL game combined for the games opening goal with Luke Gazdic having his shot deflect off Jim Slaters stick and in for a 1-0 Edmonton lead. The Jets were 8-15-2 last year when giving up the first goal. The Jets went to work on their first power play of the season and it was Mark Scheifele from a bit of a sharp angle, ripping one high glove to tie the game. It was Scheifeles second career NHL goal. Bryan Little, with his 100th career goal, gave the Jets the lead but before the period ended, Boyd Gordon scored on the power play to tie the game at two. Shots in the first period favoured Edmonton, 15-7. Toby Enstrom, who started last year going 2-11-13 in his first 10 games, picked up assists on both Jet goals, as did Dustin Byfuglien. Over the past two seasons, Byfuglien is the leagues second highest scoring defenceman. The second period saw the Oilers take a two-goal lead on goals Ales Hemsky and Jesse Joensuu. The Joensuu goal came 22 seconds into a power play after Paul Postma was called for delay of game. The first Oiler power play goal came 17 seconds after the start of the penalty, both goals coming off Edmonton face-off wins, never allowing the Jets to be aggressive up ice on the penalty kill that was successful on 36 of 38 in the pre-season. The Jets got stronger and a goal my Michael Frolik made it a 4-3 game, Jacob Trouba with an assist for his first NHL point. Jets outshot the Oilers 15-9 in the second. After the game, head coach Claude Noel felt the Frolik goal was a turning point in the game as his team "was somewhat demoralized even though there was lots of hockey to be played, but that goal gave us some life." The Oilers won 17 of 29 face-offs in the second period and after winning seven of eight in the first, Little lost seven of eight in the second and ended the night winning 10 of 24. Olli Jokinen was the best Jet on face-offs, winning 12 of 21. Now back to a wild third period. Down by one, Trouba stepped up and intercepted a pass in the neutral zone, took a couple of strides inside the blue line and fired a rolling puck past Devan Dubnyk to tie the game. That set the stage for Froliks second goal of the game on a great back pass from Eric Tangradi. Byfuglien picked up his third assist of the night on the goal. The Jets killed off three third-period penalties, including two in the final eight minutes. "Our penalty kill came to life, we had some big kills," commented Noel. Ondrej Pavelec was brilliant down the stretch to preserve the win. "Pav made big saves at key times. They had a lot of good looks." The Oilers outshot the Jets, 38-28. It was a memorable debut for the 19-year-old Trouba with a goal and an assist and leading the Jets in ice-time at 25:02. He finished with a plus 2 rating, was used in all situations, including the third period penalty kills, and was named first star. "He was a standout for a young player," was the post-game comment from Noel. "Really solid." Byfuglien was second in ice-time at 24:09 and led the team with five hits. "I liked his game. He played with emotion, he was physical." Going back to the end of last year, Byfuglien now has 10 points in his last nine games, Little 12 in his last 10. Mark Scheifele ended his solid night with a goal and four shots on goal in 17:58 of ice time. For Frolik, offence is a part of his game. He had back-to-back 21-goal seasons in his first two years in the NHL. The come-from-behind win is a good sign for the Jets, who were 1-14 last season when trailing after two. It was also the first time in three years the Jets won their season opener. The previous two were at MTS Centre. The Jets were without Grant Clitsome due to injury, while Adam Pardy, Anthony Peluso and Matt Halischuk were healthy scratches. The Jets now prepare for their home opener on Friday against the Los Angeles Kings (TSN Jets, TSN 1290) before the Anaheim Ducks are in Winnipeg on Sunday. In both cases, the visitors play the night before in Minnesota. Craig Dahl 49ers Jersey . Newcastle dominated in the early stages but City weathered the storm and then raised its game in extra time. Negredo broke the deadlock from close range after a simple move in the 99th minute before Dzeko took the ball round goalkeeper Tim Krul to seal the victory in the 105th. Roger Craig 49ers Jersey . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me.SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah Jazz rookie Trey Burke will undergo surgery on a broken finger on his shooting hand. Burke will have the operation on Tuesday morning in Salt Lake City. Pins will be inserted to stabilize the point guards right index finger, which he fractured during a 106-74 preseason loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night. The Jazz did not announce a timetable for Burkes return, but he is expected to miss anywhere from eight to 12 weeks. "Its unfortunate that it would happen now in training camp," coach Tyrone Corbin said after Mondays practice. "He was learning a new game and the way to play it and he was making great strides. And now he wont have a chance to be in a game for a little while. But he can learn in different ways." Burke was penciled in as a starter after the Jazz acquired his rights from the Minnesota Timberwolves in a draft night trade. Burke spent two seasons at Michigan, leading Wolverines to the national championship game as a sophomore. He averaged 18.6 points, 6.7 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals while shooting 46.3 per cent from the field and 38.4 per cent from 3-point range in his final collegiate season before turning pro. Corbin said the Jazz will work closely with Burke to keep him from falling behind during his absence. Steve Young 49ers Jersey. "Well have him watching," Corbin said. "Were going to miss him on the floor, but were going to do some different things with him to keep getting him up to speed." Veteran point guard John Lucas III likely will be the starter until Burke recovers. Lucas signed with the Jazz as a free agent during the off-season. Lucas has appeared in 174 games during five NBA seasons, making a pair of starts with the Chicago Bulls in the 2011-12 season. He has career averages of 5.1 points and 1.5 assists. Lucas doesnt feel extra pressure with his role suddenly changed from backup mentor to starter. "Im going to come in and do exactly what Ive been doing," Lucas said. "Getting everybody involved. Keep knocking down shots. Keep trying to get wins." Alec Burks, who ran the offence in limited minutes a season ago, could potentially slide over to the point to help out while Burke is sidelined. Beyond using Burks as an emergency point guard, the Jazz will look into trade options and signing potential free agents to shore up their backcourt depth. Currently, Scott Machado and Lester Hudson, who both joined the team in preseason camp, are the only other point guard options on the Jazz roster.
