Jets Nation Recap: Jets fail to fire in Toronto

The Winnipeg Jets lost against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the most non-Jet fashion: good special teams and bad 5-on-5.

The game started off slow until Korbinian Holzer picked up a penalty for goalie interference. Leo Komarov ended up with a fast break and a quick release on the penalty kill, beating Michael Hutchinson to make it 1-0 for the bad guys.

Jets answered back quickly with a Jacob Trouba goal on the same power play. Mark Scheifele later that period also picked up a power play goal off a great picked-off pass in the slot.

The game continued to go back and forth, with the Leafs getting one, then the Jets, and then the Leafs tying up the game at three a piece.

James van Riemsdyk stopped a 10 game goalless drought with a one-timer from Olli Jokinen in OT to finish the Jets.

Let's break it down.

JGD #60: Playoff Push at T-Dot

The Jets enter today's game still holding onto the first Wild Card spot in the west with a "true 0.500" record and 30-20-10. This is still good enough for fourth in the Central Division and fifth in the Western Conference. The Toronto Maple Leafs meanwhile sit second last in the Atlantic and third last in the east with a 23-31-5 record.

Jets lost their last game and are 4-4-2 in their last ten. Leafs are on a two game losing streak and have an ugly 1-8-1 over their last 10.

Currently SportsClubStatistics (which has flaws relying on goal differentials over shot metrics) places the Jets odds depending on the number of games the Jets win over their final 22 games:
