The Jets' third game in four nights on the road has them facing the red hot New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. After dropping a heartbreaker to the Capitals on Tuesday, then stealing a point with a comeback in Washington on Thursday and gutting out a solid win over the Red Wings in their last trip to the Joe on Friday, Winnipeg limps into New York as a battered club with seven players nursing injuries to face an Eastern Conference leading Rangers team that has won four in a row. The Rangers defeated the Bruins 5-2 in Boston last night behind 35 saves from backup goaltender Annti Raata and look to extend their winning stream with Henrik Lundqvist returning to the net.
The Jets iced their youngest lineup yet on Friday with recent callups Nic Petan, Andrew Copp, and Marko Dano playing important minutes and not looking out of place. They'll be in for another test from the high scoring Rangers who lead the league in goal differential with a +23 (50 goals scored in 12 games, compared to the Jets with 32).
Puck drops at 6pm. Coverage on Sportsnet and TSN1290. After the jump we look at the projected lines.

The NHLN Notebook is a semi-regular feature of interesting hockey content from the past few days that doesn't quite deserve its own article.
The Columbus Blue Jackets beat the crap out of the Montreal Canadiens by a score of 10-0. It was probably the greatest game in franchise history, but, of course, all anybody can talk about is Shea Weber.

The Winnipeg Jets are like a bacon triple cheeseburger. They're plenty of fun to consume, but they're not so good for the heart. Once again the Cardiac Kids of the NHL had to overcome a third period deficit to win a game. Four third period goals including the first two goals in Brandon Tanev's career gave the Jets a stirring 5-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena.

Hi everybody! It's annoying Leafs person.
WAIT! Wait... This isn't a Leafs blog.
The Nation Network overlord people thought it would be fun for me to try a weekly nation-wide post. I told them that I don't get nearly enough hate on the Sportsnet Facebook page so that sounds like a great idea.
Here's a few things I thought were noteworthy this week.

The Jets will make their way to the historic Joe Louis Arena for one final time tonight. The injury riddled Jets ( to say the least) will have to make due with the lineup that they have. Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, Shawn Matthias and Bryan Little are on the shelf and the Jets lineup seems to be getting younger by the day.
Puck drop is slated for 6:30 PM CT and you can catch the game on TSN3 and as always you can give the game a listen on TSN 1290.
