Everything's coming up Milhouse for the Winnipeg Jets lately. In the past ten days, the Jets have hired a new coach, put together an impressive winning streak, and looked every bit like the playoff-contending team they
should could be. Yes, it appears The Little Franchise From Manitoba That Could is finally on the right track.
But hold on. What's that up ahead on the tracks? A duck. A gigantic duck, in fact, who's won 19 of its last 21 games, outscoring its opponents an astounding 82-46 during that stretch. This massive, all-consuming duck has one wing named "Getzlaf" and another they call "Perry", and when both of those hulking wings get going, the duck becomes unflappable.
Alright, I'll stop with the whole train/duck thing.

On this week's episode, the guys try to rationalize their excitement for Paul Maurice, his future with the Winnipeg Jets and if there are going to be any other options to fill the head coaching position once the season is over. All that, plus Byfuglien at forward, the media attacking our weaker players and this week's test down in California.

During and after the fireworks in Vancouver on Saturday night, many people wanted to get on Canucks head coach John Tortorella for being so mad. Claiming that if he didn’t want or expect that to happen, he should have put out a more skilled line.

Well that was exciting.
The joy seems to be back in Joyville. Wait. Sorry, wrong head coach.
Things seem to be going pretty well for the Jets lately, and a dominant performance against the Edmonton Oilers really proved that point. The dominance started in the neutral zone though, where the controlled entry bug seems to be spreading throughout the lineup.

The Jets put another solid performance together against a lowly opponent in the Edmonton Oilers Saturday afternoon. It was their third win a row under Coach Paul Maurice as he continues to become the most popular man in the city. Well, next to Jacob Trouba that is.
