A Look Ahead: The Second Half Starts Now

Well, Christmas is now behind us and we have one day to recover before hockey starts back up (luckily, the World Juniors begin today so we're not completely hockey-less). The Jets split their Vancouver series by dropping a 4-1 game and then winning one by the same score and they now sit at 16-17-3, which is good for 35 points.

So, they've gotta go, like, 25-12-7? 23-11-13? This is going to be a really tall order for a young club that has been the very definition of inconsistent over the first three months of the season. If they want to have ANY hope at even glimpsing the playoff race in the second half of this season, they're going to have to get hot quick and I mean, like, right now. Let's take a look at what's coming up this week.
