The Jets have already beaten the Canucks twice this season and will go for a sweep of the season-series Sunday night.

Forward Mathieu Perreault, who scored the Jets lone goal in regulation on Saturday, said the team is fully equipped to win low-scoring, close games.

It is actually easier to do business in countries that have only recently ended civil wars than in a relatively peaceful Bangladesh!

We are bound to lose our much-needed foreign investment to other countries who are competing for the same limited resources.
