The hockey holiday break is upon us, and the World Juniors are only days away. In this Jets Prospects Update we'll take a look at some standouts and how they have fared through the first half of their respective seasons.

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.

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.
