I’ll be the first to say it; I still think the Jets are a very long shot for making the playoffs. I just don’t think they are strong enough overall to make it. BUT, if they can put together performances like the one they had on Friday night against Vancouver, they will at minimum make the last couple months of this season very interesting.

                                  Tortorella and Statler must get along great.

This game was so high-octane, it was tiring to watch.

TSN announcers Gord Miller and Ray Ferraro commented multiple times on how few whistles there were, counting only 11 in the second period alone (two were from goals).

                                 Umm….yuck.

Jets fans at the MTS Centre were treated to three games in one last night against the Predators. First, we had a defensive dual. Next, there was a scrambled effort as the Jets were caught chasing in their own end for far too long. Finally, they really turned it on and showed everyone how dangerous they really can be. In the end, a couple weird bounces kept the Jets in this game, while some inferior goaltending pulled them right back out of it.
