Sometimes, it just isn't your night. No matter what you do or how hard you try, the breaks just don't happen. The Winnipeg Jets found this out the hard way tonight, dropping a 5-2 decision to the Philadelphia Flyers in the City of Brotherly Love.

Riding high on a 5 game points streak, the Winnipeg Jets hit the ice in Philadelphia tonight to mark the beginning of the season's longest road trip. This may well prove to be a very important trip as these Jets sit in second place in the Western Conference (yes, you read that right) and the upcoming five games will give us a good sense of whether or not this is for real.

Injuries to key players isn't stopping the Jets from propelling forward. As it stands now, the Jets are second in the Central Division while sitting four points behind the division lead. Despite having Mathieu Perreault, Bryan Little, Kyle Connor, Joel Armia, Shawn Matthias, Drew Stafford and Tyler Myers out of the lineup, the Jets are 5-1-1 in their last seven games. Much of Winnipeg's recent success has to be attributed to the performance of the team's recent call-ups from the Manitoba Moose. The Moose call-ups have filled in the gaps for the Jets quite nicely and have have combined for 14 points in team's last 8 games.
The reality is, Winnipeg's call-ups are playing well enough that some of them may have earned the right to stick around longer than a brief stint. Many of them have shown they deserve to stay for the long term, but will any of them be kept on the Jets roster even once the Jets injury woes settle down?
