                                                         Go, Staurt!

Hockey is a weird sport sometimes.

After two periods, the Jets looked finished. Outshot 27-6, they looked in danger of falling beneath their season-low shot total of 14. Their only powerplay came off of a Chicago bench minor. No line could spend any amount of time in the offensive zone. Patrick Kane sifted through two-man coverage at will, and Al Montoya had to stand on his head to keep the score close.

                                           Our two fastest boys.

Before they could celebrate their OT home win against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Jets were back on a plane bound for Chicago, getting ready to face the Stanley Cup Champion Blackhawks for the fourth (and thankfully last) time this season.

Jokinen with the German Suplex on Thornton.

Let's face it: the Winnipeg Jets do not sport a winning record. With a mere 51 points in 52 games, there aren't too many teams across the league you'd expect the Jets to beat with relative ease. Edmonton, Calgary, Buffalo, maybe Florida, but the buck stops there.

Except, of course, for the lowly Toronto Maple Leafs.

                 They spelled my name wrong. And I'm not that big.

Well, it had to end sometime, didn't it?

For those of you who watched the game against Anaheim, tonight's loss may come as no surprise. The Sharks, like the Ducks, are cut from a different cloth than the other teams Winnipeg beat during it's now dead four game winning streak. San Jose is a deep, well-structered team, and the Jets couldn't get anything going against them all night.
