He Fro-likie that one (...'cause he just scored).
The game started off on the wrong foot for the Jets.

While the majority of North Americans will be out this morning trampling each other's faces for slightly cheaper merchandise, the Jets roll into the Wells Fargo Center with a chance to string together their second longest winning streak of the season.

Per usual we were asleep at the switch and didn't realize that November 17 marked the 6th birthday of the Nation Network. We can only imagine that this is foreshadowing to days where we will forget our wife's birthday and most of our children's names and birthdays as well. Sorry whomever you may be, we have a lot going on in this brain of ours* and sometimes things slip through the cracks.

On Monday ten former NHL players filed a class action lawsuit against the NHL for concussions they suffered while playing hockey. One more player has since joined. If you haven’t seen it in its entirety, you can check it out here.
I have no idea what the gentleman that played the game in the decades before me went through. I don't know what the medical protocols were for guys concussed or how medically informed they were, way back when.
I don’t even know if the NHL knew. That’s the biggest question in all of this.

We learned a lot about the Jets on this Wednesday evening in Long Island. Against another poor Eastern Conference team, the Jets squeeked out a win on the back of three goals in 5 minutes, seemingly sentient goal posts, and Al Montoya.
Defenders chased, the fourth line stayed hemmed in the Jets end, and the team's third pairing was both a mess and required to create scoring for the Jets to get a 'W.' No doubt we will hear the empty phrase 'it's two points' uttered often as a sentence (already frustrating) and as a tautological defence of what we saw on the ice.
This road trip is important for the team in more ways than just climbing the standings. It's an opportunity to fix their game under less duress, and despite being 2-0-0 so far, progress has been lacking.
