The Winnipeg Jets look for a successful start to the new season against a club that shares their history. Custom Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys . The Jets take on the newly-christened Arizona Coyotes - the former Phoenix Coyotes and former Winnipeg Jets - in Glendale in their season opener. Viewers in the Winnipeg region can watch the Jets vs. Coyotes live tonight on TSN3 at 8pm ct. The game can also be heard on TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg starting at 7pm ct. Winnipeg has missed the playoffs in each of its three seasons since moving from Atlanta and last season finished last in the Central Division. That came in the Jets first campaign in the Western Conference after shifting from the East in realignment. The Jets will open the season with Paul Maurice as its head coach, a role he took over from the fired Claude Noel in January. Winnipeg went 11-3-1 in Maurices first 15 games -- including a 5-1 win over Phoenix in his debut on Jan. 13 -- but a six-game slide in early March sealed the clubs fate. Winnipeg did not have an active offseason, signing center Mathieu Perreault. However, the franchise did opt to keep forward Evander Kane, who scored 30 goals as a 20-year-old in 2011-12 but has tallied only 36 times in 111 game since. The Jets are also expected to move Dustin Byfuglien from defense to the wing, a role he filled while helping Chicago win the Stanley Cup in 2010 after getting drafted as a blueliner. The 6-foot-5 American was moved back to the blue line after getting dealt to Atlanta in the summer of 10 and became an All-Star defenseman capable of creating havoc on the rush. Byfuglien and 21-year-old rookie Adam Lowry, who had 33 points in 64 AHL games last season, will try to help on offense, while the likes of Tobias Enstrom, Zach Bogosian and Jacob Trouba pick up the slack on defense. Ondrej Pavelec, signed to a five-year deal prior to 2012-13, struggled to a 22-26-7 mark last season with a 3.01 GAA and .901 save percentage. Hell have a chance to get off to a good start to this season tonight as he is 4-1-1 lifetime versus the Coyotes with a 1.61 GAA and .945 save percentage. Winnipeg made one line-up change on Thursday afternoon, adding Paul Postma on defence in place of Grant Clitsome. The Jets, who open this season on a three-game road trip, won all three meetings with the Coyotes last season and have won four in a row in this series after going winless in seven straight encounters. Doan was the seventh overall pick of the 1995 draft when the franchise was still in Winnipeg and is the last remaining Jet to be playing in the NHL following Teemu Selannes recent retirement. The Coyotes franchise is entering its 18th season since leaving the city of Winnipeg for the desert. There hasnt been a ton of success for the club since and it hopes to turn things around under a slightly new name. The Coyotes have missed the playoffs in two straight seasons and in eight of the last 11 campaigns. However, there is still reason for hope as Arizona failed to secure a postseason spot by just four points in 2013 before finishing two points removed from the eighth seed last season. While the Coyotes sport two of the most dangerous offensive blueliners in the league -- Keith Yandle and Oliver Ekman-Larsson -- they are hoping to get more help from their forwards. That despite losing their second-leading scorer from last year in Radim Vrbata to free agency and buying out center Mike Ribeiro. One day shy of his 38th birthday, captain Shane Doan does return for his 19th season and center Sam Gagner is expected to make his Coyotes debut. Gagner was the sixth overall pick of the 2007 draft by Edmonton and was traded twice in the offseason, going from the Oilers to Tampa Bay to Arizona in one day. Gagner had just 37 points with the Oilers last season and the Coyotes are hoping he can produce in a bigger role. Arizona begins the season with a four-game homestand and will have Mike Smith in net. After a breakout 2011-12 season, Smith went 27-21-10 in 2013-14 with a 2.64 goals against average and .915 save percentage. He did get hot towards the end of the campaign, posting a 1.94 GAA and .934 save percentage over a 16-game span from Feb. 1-March 22, but suffered a season-ending injury on March 24. Smith is 1-2-1 with a 2.22 GAA and .923 save percentage in four games against the Jets.

He was attracted by the punishing defence, the strong running game and a coaching staff he trusted. The 49ers announced Thursday that Manningham had signed a two-year deal to join the team he helped knock out in the NFC championship game two months ago in their latest offensive upgrade at wide receiver.WINNIPEG - Rookie Mossis Madu ran 22 yards for his first CFL touchdown as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 16-11 Saturday for their first road win of the season. Madu, replacing running back C.J. Gable whos on the six-game injured list, scored after the Bombers had turned the ball over on a blocked punt in the second quarter. The victory extended the Ticats win streak to three games and put them in a first-place tie atop the East Division standings at 5-8 with the Montreal Alouettes. The Bombers have lost four straight and sit last in the West Division at 6-7. Winnipeg rallied with about six minutes left in the game, trying to repeat an early-season comeback when it defeated Hamilton 27-26 on July 31 with a two-yard touchdown pass to Nic Grigsby on the final play of the game. Quarterback Drew Willy began the late drive completing a 29-yard pass to Romby Bryant and a 20-yard pass Grigsby before slotback Cory Watson caught a five-yard touchdown pass in the end zone with 5:52 remaining. A two-point convert failed with an incomplete pass to Watson in front of 28,534 fans at Investors Group Field. After the following kickoff and a Hamilton penalty, the Tiger-Cats started at their own nine-yard line. Two plays later, Hamilton had to punt, but Winnipeg defensive back Don Unamba was called for contacting kicker Justin Medlock. Hamilton then got a first down and started from its own 25-yard line, but couldnt add to their lead. With 2:04 remaining, Winnipeg started its last drive from its own 23-yard line. A couple of Hamilton penalties helped the Bombers get to mid-field. Willy guided the offence down to Hamiltons three-yard line with 16 seconds left, but on third down with three yards to go he threw an incomplete pass into the end zone that wasnt near any receiver. The Tiger-Cats have won four of their last five games, a run thats come after quarterback Zach Collaros returned after missing five games with concussion-like symptoms. Willy, playing after injuring his throwing shoulder Sept. 13, took some punishing hits that had him getting up slowly a few times. He was sacked four times in the first half, twice by defensive lineman Ted Laurent and once by linemates Eric Norwood and Justin Hickman. Willy was also knocked to the turf a number of times, but finished the game completing 27-of-41 pass attempts for 303 yards and a TD. Collaros, who was sacked twice in the first half, was 20 of 36 for 182 yards. Medlock made field goals from 44, 37 and 39 yards, but went wide from 47 yards out. Winnipeg scored off a safety when Collaros was sacked in the end zone by defensive lineman Bryant Turner. Lirim Hajrullahhu connected on a field goal from 20 yards. Hunter Henry Jersey. The Tiger-Cats led 10-5 at halftime. Hamiltons game-opening drive was kept alive with a Winnipeg pass-interference penalty and ended with Medlocks 44-yarder at 3:31 to make it 3-0. The teams sputtered for much of the first quarter, with Winnipeg twice starting drives deep in its own end and Hamilton unable to capitalize on its good field position. The Bombers didnt cross mid-field until time was winding down on the first quarter. Turners sack of Collaros in the end zone for a safety made it 3-2 at 1:04 of the second quarter. The Bombers then turned the ball over when Hajrullahu took a snap that bounced in front of him, quickly kicked the ball and had it blocked by Hamilton defensive back Ed Gainey. Receiver Samuel Giguere recovered the ball and the Ticats took over at Winnipegs 31-yard line. Madu ran for nine yards and then weaved 22 yards through Bomber defenders for his first touchdown at 4:53 to make it 10-2. The Bombers followed up with a nine-play, 66-yard drive capped off by Hajrullahus 20-yarder, but it was a tough stretch for Willy. He was knocked to the ground by defensive tackle Bryan Hall, drawing a roughing-the-passer penalty. Willy looked sore getting up, and it wasnt helped when Hall also tackled him hard later in the same drive. Hajrullahu made it 10-5 with his 20-yard field goal at 10:25. Norwood also went in untouched and barrelled into Willy as he was releasing the ball. Norwood had a career-high four sacks in Hamiltons 25-23 win over Edmonton last week. The Ticats extended their lead to 13-5 at 2:19 of the second quarter with a four-play, 15-yard drive that Medlock finished with his 37-yard field goal. Willy was also sacked by linebacker Simoni Lawrence in the third quarter. Following a poor punt into the wind by Hajrullahu, Hamilton took over at Winnipegs 48-yard line. The Bombers defence didnt allow them to take advantage of the good field position and Medlock tried a 47-yard field-goal attempt, but went wide left and the Bombers brought it out. The Ticats led 13-5 heading into the four quarter. With just under 11 minutes to go, it appeared like Winnipeg had recovered a Hamilton fumble after receiver Greg Ellingson couldnt hang onto a pass, but the incomplete-pass ruling on the field was upheld despite Bombers head coach Mike OShea challenging the call. Winnipeg looked to pick up some momentum when Troy Stoudermire took a punt return 51 yards to Hamiltons 47-yard line, but the Bombers couldnt come away with any offensive surge and ended up punting. Willy then engineered the scoring drive that ended with Watsons touchdown at 9:08.
