"Our fast start in the game wasn't said Winni- peg's Danny Johnson after he scored three goals'to lead the Jets in a 6-1 World Hockey As- sociation victory over the Cougars. "We were intending to play a defensive game but then we got breakaways and two-on- ones." The Jets scored three goals in the first three minutes and added two more before the pe- riod ended.
