Lee Stempniak scored the first goal at MTS Centre in this era of Winnipeg Jets playoff hockey. And while the Ducks would spoil the party with their 5-4 overtime win, there isn't a person on the planet today who wasn't impressed by the whiteout tonight. Winnipeg, you did yourself proud with this outpouring of civic pride, and with Gary Bettman in the crowd you've shown the NHL why they were justified in coming back to the Manitoba capital.
I'm proud of my city tonight. Well done, Winnipeg!
