No debate if this was a moral victory or not. The Jets started off ugly falling behind in the first period yet again and could never muster any real offense as they drop a 4-1 loss to the Calgary Flames.

Ugh. Let's just power through this recap and get on with happier holiday thoughts because the Jets aren't providing much jolly lately.

JGD 34: Jets Get Back Up on the Saddle

Once again, the Jets were unable to string consecutive wins together. 

After a complete 60-minute effort against the New York Rangers that resulted in an impressive 5-2 win, the Jets got off to a slow start against the Edmonton Oilers last night that resulted in a disappointing 3-1 loss

It wasn't until the Oilers got up to a 3-0 lead and had pulled starter Connor Hellebuyck that the Jets started to put pressure on the Oilers. The Jets broke the shutout bid with a goal from Bryan Little, but that was all they could muster out of their 45 shots. Cam Talbot was a wall. 

Tonight, the Jets head to the Saddledome to take on the Calgary Flames in their final game before the short Christmas break.

As far as "moral victories" go, this was a good one.

The Jets fell behind 2-0 halfway through the first period but came roaring back to fire 45 shots at Oilers goalie Cam Talbot who stopped 44 of them to secure a 3-1 Edmonton win.

Textbook moral victory for the Jets tonight, but sadly they count for the same amount of points as a regulation loss does.

After a great 60-minute effort against the New York Rangers, where they came out with a 5-2 win, the Jets look to make it two wins in a row tonight as they head off to face another struggling team, the Edmonton Oilers. 

This will be the first of three meetings between the Jets and Oilers this season. 

Just a week ago, the Oilers were one of the hottest teams in the NHL. They were riding a six-game winning streak while beating some very good teams, including the Boston Bruins, San Jose Sharks, Dallas Stars and New York Rangers.
