How lucky are the Jets? As they scuttle around simultaneously winning and losing games you think they possibly couldn't, their division rivals are dropping like flies. With every rivals' torn groin, broken wrist and damaged MCL, the Jets find themselves in increasingly better shape to make some noise in the this shortened season.

Wow. There really is no middle ground in the Northwest Division, is there?
Whether it's in the standings, with the Canucks pretty much feasting on the talent starved rest of the division, or in the front offices, where you could never accuse any of the GMs of being underfed, but sometimes it sure seems like they've starved their brains of oxygen.
That's right: it's feast or famine in the Northwest. (Yeah, I went there. Deal with it.)
This last week was no exception...

Florida Panthers (6-11-5) vs.
Your Winnipeg Jets (10-10-1)
Last Meeting: Feburary 5, Jets 3 - Panthers 2 (OT)
So on Saturday, Washington entered our matchup last in the east. Today, that’s Florida! Man, I don’t want to be a King maker. Or, like, a serf maker, I guess. Turning plebs into prols, maybe? Okay, forget feudalism – let’s go with wrestling. We can’t let ‘em off the mat, boys!

Working for CBC Sports and Hockey Night in Canada has been a dream of mine ever since I was a kid. In October of the 2011-12 NHL season, this dream became a reality.
My ticket into “the ceebs” was making highlight packs. I did that all throughout last season, and once the players and owners stopped bickering, I continued to do it this season.
I’ve had some people watch my highlight packs and ask questions like, “Why didn’t you put this in there?” “Why didn’t you mention this?” “Why did you put that in, but not this?” Those are all fair questions, because whether you agree with the editing decisions I make or not, there is a method to my madness.
Here is a little look at how I make highlight packs. For those of you reading this on the Leafs, Flames, or Oilers Nation websites, I know your team didn't play last night, but they're obviously regulars on Hockey Night in Canada, so you may like this, too.

Washington Capitals (7-11-1) vs.
Your Winnipeg Jets (10-9-1)
Last Meeting: January 22, Jets 4, Capitals 2
As our own Travis Hrubeniuk talked about yesterday, the Jets come into this matinee riding a three game win streak and in need of more to put distance between them and the bottom of the conference (aka the Capitals). The last time these two teams met, the Jets got their first win of the season. Today the Jets are in a position to take over 1st in the Division with a win a bit of luck.
