The Winnipeg Jets are pulling out the big guns in time for Game 2 against the St. Louis Blues on Friday.

Popular Ukrainian men’s choir, Hoosli, will once again return to the ice to sing the anthem ahead of the game.

The Jets have a winning record when Hoosli performs ahead of a game.

The group last performed on Mar. 23 when the Jets beat the Nashville Predators 5-0.

Hoosli has sung the anthem at five games over the past three seasons and each time the Jets have won.

Not only has the team won, they’ve outscored their opponents 30-11, including 15-1 in the first period.
