At one point this season, pundits were calling for this team to forge an identity. It seems the team is settling on 'shootout specialists.'

After an offensive onslaught, a come-from-behind shot parade, and a 41 save one-goalie show, the Jets rode faceoff wins, powerplay goals, and Dustin Byfuglien to victory to make it four in a row against the Flyers. What is this team?

This season at Jets Nation, I've begun tracking zone entry data. In other words, the number of times and method by which the Jets enter the offensive zone.

Why? A study completed by Eric Tulsky and Broad Street Hockey has shown that teams who enter the offensive zone with control of the puck are the teams that create more offence through control of neutral zone play and maintaining possession.

I've been giving game-by-game updates, but this data is better used with larger sample sizes. Therefore, today we will take a look at the Jets' numbers through their first 20 games and see how they are performing as a group and individually.

The famed Broad Street 

Thanks to a three game winning streak, the visiting Flyers have crawled all the way up to 13th in the East. Struggling stars, limited depth, a well respected coach fired after three games, and the 2nd worst scoring rate in the league have combined to make Philadelphia the most obvious source of two points on the Jets' November calendar.

Of course, with years of experience against the Panthers and Hurricanes, the Jets know better than to be counting points before the final buzzer. Even more importantly, a team that was in a tail spin just one week ago has suddenly scored 11 of their season total 33 goals in the 3 games coming into tonight's matchup. 

Suddenly, it's the tale of two teams on hot streaks, each trying to prove they've left October behind.
