Out of a Hurricane and into a Lightning storm, the Jets continue a dangerous home stand tonight against a young Tampa team. Collecting two points against the only club left in the league that doesn't have a win has somehow soothed tempers around Winnipeg. 

Facing his former employer, Paul Maurice called it the most 'dialed in' bench he's seen from the Jets this year, and showed his pleasure by leaving out the f-bomb in his post-game presser. But the fact remains that the Jets are behind the Oilers - who made national headlines for sucking - Coyotes, and Panthers at 27th in league standings and haven't beaten a team with a positive goal differential yet. A scoreless powerplay contributes to the Jets' meager 11 goal showing through 6 games (5 goals in the last 5 games) and Ondrej Pavelec is on his usual grind. 

No one is using the 'must win' label for game seven, but six points in seven games looks a lot better than four.
