It's the fourth of five meetings between new Divisional opponents. The Jets have given up 11 goals in those three games to the Stars, and the bad guys earned 5 of the 6 points that now separate the two teams in the standings.

The new-look New York Rangers are in town tonight with all eyes on their
smallest second smallest winger.
Martin St Louis took a lot of public flak over his ego-driven decision to leave the Bolts, and so expectations are naturally high. How dare he do that and then score just one point in his first five games as a Ranger?! Thinks he's so good...
Well, in fact, he is. He's the 4th best scorer in the entire league over the last 3 seasons (Malkin, Kessler, and Giroux ahead of him), and 7th best if we go by points per game (add in Crosby, Stamkos, and Tavares). He's ahead of Ovechkin and the Sedins and Thornton and Toews and Datsyuk and all the other stars that get talked about as 'elite.' He's also had a couple Selke votes for best defensive forward in the past five years and might have had more were he not playing in obscurity down south.
Coming into game 6 for the Rangers, his ice time is up, the verbal is good, and the chances are coming. If this were the Yakuza / Mafia fight from The Simpsons, Martin St Louis would be the tiny guy in the white suit. Don't turn away too soon, Jets fans.

The TSN talking heads offered up their usual keen analysis in the intermission of last night's shootout loss to the struggling Canucks. One of the most stunning bits of wisdom came from Bob McKenzie's mouth, who articulated something Jets fans have heard before. Sure, Evander Kane is good and all, but why isn't he better?
In particular, McKenzie and TSN showed clips of Kane's speed - busting around Jason Garrison in Vancouver, drawing a penalty shot call, and beating Jan Hejda like Hejda was on roller skates - and made the comment that even as a 30 goal scorer, Kane looks like he should score more.
Is that a reasonable analysis of Kane? How much better can he be?
