The people of Winnipeg have waited a long time to get a team back in the NHL playoffs, and they are enjoying every second of the Jets opening-round series with the Anaheim Ducks, even if the team is one game away from elimination.
The Douglas Mennonite Church is taking advantage of the playoffs with some clever signs aimed at Jets fans.
The church's playoff marquee reads, "YES JESUS SAID LOVE YOUR ENEMIES YES THIS PROBABLY INCLUDES ANAHEIM," before following that gem up with another which stated, "PRAYER MEETING WEDNESDAY 8:30 PM MTS CENTRE"
The Jets look to keep hope alive on Wednesday night as they try for the city's first playoff victory in 19 years, before the original franchise moved to Arizona to become the Coyotes.
