The Winnipeg Jets win yet again. They move one closer to the playoffs, which looks to be a very tight race.

The Jets started hot. Dominating the San Jose Sharks early in both goals, shots, and shot attempts. Three early goals by Adam Lowry, Mark Scheifele, and Andrew Ladd sent Antti Niemi packing.

Combination of score effects and the Sharks waking up created a rough ride for the Jets over the next two periods. The Sharks pressed hard and scored two goals from the stick of Joe Pavelski, only for Blake Wheeler to score two of his own in between Pavelski's.

The Winnipeg Jets are getting healthy at the right time as they try to stay in the playoff hunt Tuesday night.

Myers, who missed one game with an upper-body injury, declared himself fit for action. Byfuglien, however, may need a few more days to fully heal from his upper-body injury.

The Jets (34-23-12, 80 points) are one point behind the Los Angeles Kings for the final wild-card spot.
