The Jets look to string a three-game win streak together in Toronto tonight, taking on the Maple Leafs at 6:30pm CT.

Winnipeg's playoff hopes are all but done and dusted, but tonight is an opportunity to play spoiler and deal a huge blow to the Leafs' already-dwindling playoff chances.

Jacob Trouba's NHL break has just been extended by a few days.

This means the Jets defender will miss Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, as well as thanks to the week long player's break the following Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild. Trouba will not be eligible to join the Jets lineup until their contest Friday, March 3rd against the St. Louis Blues.

Once in a while I get someone telling me the Winnipeg Jets are a better team without Toby Enstrom. Typically the individual will defer to the Jets losing record with Enstrom dressed for the Jets.

So, how much validity is there to this position?
