The Winnipeg Jets continue the playoff push as the head to the American capital to face Alex Ovechkin and friends. The Jets have 23 games remaining in the regular season. The magic numbers according to Sports Club Stats are:
The Jets enter today's game still holding onto the first Wild Card spot in the west with a record of 30-19-10, good enough for fourth in the Central Division and fifth in the Western Conference. The Washington Capitals meanwhile sit in the exact same spot in the east with a 31-17-10 record. Both teams enter today with a two-game win streak, although only the Capitals have a winning record over their last ten games.

Can the Jets ride out the storm? What should we expect?

Despite Hutchinson's slumping play, the Jets should start leaning on him more.
Here is why.
