Super Lube Warmup: Wheeler’s Toughness & Manitoba Slurpees

Super Lube Warmup: Wheeler’s Toughness & Manitoba Slurpees

I joined Andrew “Hustler” Paterson on The Super Lube Warmup on TSN 1290 Winnipeg; We discussed Blake Wheleer’s toughness after getting body checked by the Dallas Stars bench door (he’s very tough) and the difference in taste between Slurpees sold in Manitoba, and Slurpees sold outside of Manitoba (they’re not even the same thing).

Blake Wheeler crashes into the Stars bench

Skating down the ice at full speed, Blake Wheeler went right into the open door at the Dallas Stars bench and dropped to the ground. Wheeler left the game but returned for the final minutes. The Winnipeg Jets leading scorer is no stranger to freak injuries as he missed two games in 2012 after taking a slap shot to the neck.

Cam Ward has been phenomenal vs. the Jets so far tonight. Here he robs Bryan Little on what looked like a sure goal. Little can’t believe it as he looks skyward.
