If you're happy and you know it pump your fist.
The Jets played arguably her most complete game under Paul Maurice Friday night against the Canucks. Outside of a few pushes from Vancouver, the Jets mostly controlled the pace of this game, starting from their superior play in the neutral zone.

I’ll be the first to say it; I still think the Jets are a very long shot for making the playoffs. I just don’t think they are strong enough overall to make it. BUT, if they can put together performances like the one they had on Friday night against Vancouver, they will at minimum make the last couple months of this season very interesting.

Tortorella and Statler must get along great.
This game was so high-octane, it was tiring to watch.
TSN announcers Gord Miller and Ray Ferraro commented multiple times on how few whistles there were, counting only 11 in the second period alone (two were from goals).

Can you tell which twin this is?
What a difference a couple of months can make.
Back in December, the Vancouver Canucks still looked like one of the NHL's elite teams. The Sedins were clicking, a playoff berth seemed like a given, and John Tortorella was lavished with praise for supposedly turning a team with a soft reputation into a team made from sandpaper.

Following a rather rough second period, the Jets showed once again that they are now capable of turning it on in the third to make any game interesting. Unfortunately, on Tuesday night it simply wasn’t enough to overcome some questionable goaltending throughout the night.
