Well, I guess we all know what Detroit felt like about a week ago. It’s not a very nice feeling is it?

In a game that the Jets thoroughly dominated at even strength, they were ultimately defeated due to a bad bounce, defensive lapses, and a painfully horrible penalty kill.

The Jets lost a game Sunday night that saw them get into a few old habits, repeat some typical mistakes, but manage to do something they usually don’t do in losses: compete quite evenly in the neutral zone. Pavelec was excellent once again and gave the Jets the chance to fight back after the first, and the team responded well. Unfortunately though, a couple bad decisions by Coach Noel ultimately cost them at least one, if not two points.

On Sunday night we all saw what a team who plays well within their system, and focuses hard on puck possession can do. The Wild vastly out chanced the Jets and were finally able to break through for a win against a Jet team that seemed quite comfortable with going into overtime.

This season at Jets Nation, I've begun tracking zone entry data. In other words, the number of times and method by which the Jets enter the offensive zone.
Why? A study completed by Eric Tulsky and Broad Street Hockey has shown that teams who enter the offensive zone with control of the puck are the teams that create more offence through control of neutral zone play and maintaining possession.
I've been giving game-by-game updates, but this data is better used with larger sample sizes. Therefore, today we will take a look at the Jets' numbers through their first 20 games and see how they are performing as a group and individually.
