The Morinville Jets extended their winning streak to six games over the weekend with back-to-back 6-2 wins over the St. Albert Merchants and Edmonton Mustangs.

The weekend of wins started on home ice Saturday night with the St. Albert game, on a night of honouring the memory of former Jets’ Captain Nick McRae and a puck drop from NHL legendary goalie Glenn Hall.

The Jets ended the opening frame 1-1 but pulled ahead to lead 3-1 by the end of the second. Another three goals in the third, including a shorthanded contribution from Brett Dubuc gave the Jets the win.

Sunday night’s road game was a similar affair for the Jets, who built their six-goal win two goals per frame.

The Jets play the North Edmonton Red Wings Friday night at home at 8:30 p.m. and follow it with a road game the following Wednesday to face the Beverly Warriors.
