The Jets has a rather poor game in the neutral zone on Tuesday night, but were lucky enough to be playing the Sabres, who were even worse. The Jets were still far too skilled to lose against a completely pitiful team from Buffalo.

The Jets managed to close out an interesting 2013 with a win against the woeful Buffalo Sabers. A team that is about as threatening offensively as a 6-month old kitten allowed the Jets to play a somewhat questionable game and still come away with a pretty dominating performance.

It wasn't the best game the Jets have ever played, but no one on the Sabres was able to punish them for it, and Al Montoya led his team to a shutout win over the lowly Sabres. As it should be.
With order restored over the Panthers and Sabres, the Jets can retire 2013 with a smile, and Jets fans can usher in the new year with a joy we didn't feel during the lockout.

On this week's episode, the dudes talk World Juniors, the current point system and Travis tosses out an impossible challenge. All that, plus a spelling bee, all you can eat concessions and the introduction of our swear jar.

The Jets' second and final match against the Sabres comes just 14 days after the first one - a head-shaking 4-2 loss against an historically bad offensive team. Buffalo still only has 66 goals on the season (that's right, 6% of their goals in half a season came in one game against the Jets), but are third to last in December scoring, ahead of Calgary and Montreal. Before the Jets gave up four to the Wild, the Sabres had the lead on that squad as well.
The Jets will play Al Montoya in this one, and Buffalo is countering with their back-up Jonas Enroth. A three game winning streak would be the Jets' second longest of the season, and a loss would be a groaner even if the consequences are low for inter-conference play. It's another pride game for these Jets, and another opportunity to show they can put together 60 minutes without playing down to their opponent.
