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. The 'Hawks have manhandled the Jets all season long like they were Division 5, but tonight may be a different story.

The Jets put on a terrific performance for a national audience, showing their speed down the wings, their size along the boards, and their top-6 talent on the scoresheet. A couple bad goals that will send Travis over the moon in his Pavelec Performance Tracker put the contest into overtime, but it didn't take away from the dizzying joy of beating the Leafs.

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.

Two nights after stealing a rare road win from the league-best Anaheim Ducks, the Jets head (slightly) north to face the always dangerous San Jose Sharks. Jets fans remember well the last time these two teams met back on November 10th, when captain Andrew Ladd was able to win an exciting, back and forth affair in the shootout at the MTS Centre.
When you're hot, you're hot, and the Jets are hot, but they may find just as big of a challenge waiting for them in San Jose as they did in Anaheim.
