The Jets didn't do anything extraordinary to win today's contest against the Avalanche and they didn't need to. The Avalanche are a bad team and all the Jets had to do was just play a simple game, stay out of the penalty box and hope Calvin Pickard didn't turn into the second coming of Patrick Roy and "the rest" as they say, "should take care of itself."

Welcome to the Sunday matinee version of the Jets game day post, where I have to get up early to tell you what's going on with the Jets and you can enjoy your Sunday afternoon soup.
So, what is going on with your Jets? They are closing out a 2 game home stand by playing the Colorado Avalanche. The Jets are coming off of a 4-3 shoot out win against the Florida Panthers to snap their losing streak, while Colorado has lost their last 2 games.

Welcome to game 33 for your Winnipeg Jets as they lace up their skates to battle against the Panthers. The Jets have had a few days to unwind from their rough stretch of games and do things that really matter like visit Winnipeg’s Children’s Hospital.
The Panthers have been in the news recently with the management restructuring or not restructuring…who knows what is going on there? But, what matters is they have a lineup that when playing well can be potent, especially since they have a dinosaur playing for them.
