WINNIPEG - That was a nice little warm-up in Edmonton the other night.

It was almost like the Winnipeg Jets got one more game against a run-and-gun Eastern Conference team, just for old-time’s sake, before they start playing for keeps in the West.

That change to a more physical, head-in-the-vice style that we’ve all been anticipating? Tuesday’s 5-4 Jets win wasn’t it.

Friday’s home opener against the Los Angeles Kings? Now we’re talking.
