Sometimes a team puts forth a pretty good effort and it just isn't enough as the opposing team does a little bit more to win a game.
Such was the fate of the Winnipeg Jets Sunday afternoon as they dropped a 3-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

I think we all had forgetten what a winning streak feels like. Fells pretty good.
The Jets will look to keep the good feeling going today against the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks.
The Jets and Blackhawks will meet twice in the next six days, both games being in Chicago. The Jets have played the Blackhawks once already this season; a 3-1 Jets win at the MTS Centre.

It sure looks like the Winnipeg Jets have found their goalie of the present. Connor Hellebuyck was simply sensational, making 37 saves while Mark Scheifele's overtime winner (after the lengthiest video review in NHL history) gave the Jets a 2-1 victory over the Washington Capitals.

The Winnipeg Jets had a pretty easy time disposing the lowly Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night but they'll face much sterner opposition Saturday afternoon, as the surging Washington Capitals pay their only visit to the MTS Centre this season.

Nikolaj Ehlers entered the league with a bang. He started off the season with eight points in his first ten games and was one of the favourites for the Calder after news of Connor McDavid being taken down with a shoulder injury.
Since then the Dashing Dane has slowed down, picking up only four points over the next sixteen games. Ehlers has since shifted down the depth chart to the the Jets makeshift third line with Alexander Burmistrov and Chris Thorburn.
Despite the recent set back, Nikolaj Ehlers is still having one heck of a 19-year-old rookie season and projects to be a special player.
