The Winnipeg Jets are absolutely flying right now, and they capped a perfect three-game road trip by winning over the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday.
The Jets are now the No. 1 team in the NHL, and they have recorded at least a point in 12 straight games, having won six games in a row.
The Jets are one of the NHL’s best defensive teams, with great goaltending, and they have held their opponents to three goals or less in 29(!) straight games.
The Jets have a record of 26-9-4, totaling 56 points as we’re getting close to the midway point of the season, and the Jets really seem to have found a group that’s clicking on all cylinders.
They’re not just talented players; they stick up for each other and don’t let anyone run them over.
On Sunday, they only allowed 17 shots on goal in the 6-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes.
But perhaps the most memorable and entertaining moment in the game didn’t come from a play or even from a player but from a referee.
Fans love it whenever something that wasn’t meant to be heard by the crowd gets caught on the referees’ hot mic.
On Sunday, the referee of the Jets-Coyotes game was caught on his own hot mic trying to stop players from chirping after Coyotes’ Matt Dumba was called on a penalty.
As the referee was about to announce the penalty call, players around him wouldn’t stop arguing and chirping at each other, leading to him getting caught screaming, ‘Enough!’
The video of the ref quickly went viral, with everyone finding it hilarious, with many claiming he sounded just like an annoyed parent.
”That sounds like my mom yelling at me,” one social media user said.
”That’s what I love about reffing. Sometimes it’s just a chill game; the next, it’s trying to herd toddlers to the timeout square,” another said.
”Zebra about to pull this Zamboni over,” a third said.
