All good things must come to an end. Likewise, all bad things must cease as well. The 2015-16 Winnipeg Jets season mercifully ended with a 4-3 shootout victory over the Los Angeles Kings, thus finishing a disappointing campaign on a 4-game winning streak. Alas, too little too late.

A long, disappointing season that was filled with frustration and sadness will end for the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday as they go Hollywood to end the 2015-16 season, as they face the Los Angeles Kings at the Staples Centre. The teams have split the first two meetings this season, with the Kings winning 4-1 back on October 27 while the Jets returned the favour on March 28 by the same 4-1 score. Both games were at the MTS Centre.

Any of those dates where the Jets had a chance to win their third game in a row would have been a perfectly acceptable time for them to do so. Earlier in the season could have helped build confidence. Later in the season could have helped keep a faint playoff dream alive.
April 7th - technically April 8th since the game ended just past midnight in Manitoba - in game 81 of the 82 game season with the playoffs well out of reach.. THAT is when the Jets finally managed to figure it out and be the 30th NHL team to win their third game in a row this season.
