During the pre-season, the Jets played a less-than-ideal lineup against the Minnesota Wild who iced almost their entire NHL roster and got ran out of the building in a 8-1 loss. It was a game that left Paul Maurice and the Jets a bit sour as they felt the Wild ran up the score in a meaningless game.
Tonight the game was also meaningless for the Jets but a win (along with an Avalanche loss) would have clinched a playoff win for the Wild so they had plenty on the line. They came up lame and the Jets pounced all over them in a 5-1 win.
Revenge is sweet, tank be damned.

When the schedule came out last summer, I admit I circled this date. The last home game of the season against a division rival and a team the Jets may be in the middle of a dog fight with for playoff positioning or at worst a playoff spot on the line? Seemed like it could have been a very intriguing game back in August.
Instead the Jets are playing out the string waiting for the sweet merciful end of the season, the Wild are mostly comfortable in that final wild card spot and can't get any higher, and Jets fans would just as soon let the Wild get one more step closer to clinching that playoff spot than see the Jets pick up two more points.

Have you ever been in a relationship that you know isn't working but still can't let go? That sums up the Winnipeg Jets situation with 3-on-3 overtime. The Jets went into extra time trying to kiss and make up with the extra frame only to get shunned yet again, losing 5-4 to the Chicago Blackhawks.
