The New York Rangers are a premier team in the NHL, but the Winnipeg Jets caught them at a bad time.
Well, bad time for the Rangers, very good time for the Jets.
The Rangers were coming into tonight's game at MTS Centre having lost their last six road games, including just last night against the Minnesota Wild. Having played the previous night and being in a bit of a slump as of late, the Jets knew they had to take advantage tonight.

It's been a rocky week for the Winnipeg Jets as a pair of losses to Central division rivals over the last seven days along with reports of contract negotiations, possible ownership interference, a notable demotion to the AHL followed by a pair of call ups have only heightened the angst and feelings of panic with Jets fans.
But as the saying goes, "winning cures everything" and a Jets win over the New York Rangers tonight would help ease tensions for at least the weekend.
Well ok, maybe only the night.
Fine, for only two minutes after the final whistle and then we go back to freaking out about Andrew Ladd's next contract.

The Winnipeg Jets' General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has some big decisions up ahead. The Jets currently sit tied for 2nd last in the Western Conference and last in the Central Division. They have two huge pending free agents with Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien, while they also have a major part of their future looking for raises with Mark Scheifele and Jacob Trouba.
Well, we've decided to help out Chevy make some of these decisions with a series of investigations on the Jets. We'll take a look on where the Jets are and where they could be.
We'll start our series with a breakdown on how the Jets' roster compares against playoff teams.

Yesterday it was reported that the Jets re-assigned Adam Lowry to the Manitoba Moose. This left the Jets with eleven forwards on their roster and a game coming up on the following Friday. The Jets did not call up any of their forwards with the Moose having a game on the Wednesday and Thursday.
With not wanting the call-up to play three games in three days, the Jets called up Matt Halischuk and Joel Armia, as reported by the Winnipeg Jets website.
