Hollywood. Where dreams come true. However, some dreams can turn into nightmares. For a brief spell, it looked like the Winnipeg Jets would fashion a script that would finally include a happy ending. But in pure cinematic cruelty, the Jets couldn't get the job done in the end and fell 3-2 in overtime to the Los Angeles Kings at the Staples Centre.

The Winnipeg Jets west coast swing of terror continues tonight in Los Angeles against the Kings.
The Kings have been on a consistent run of "win a game lose a game then win a game" since just before the start of the new year. They have struggled in losses to Vancouver, Detroit, Edmonton San Jose but have played quite well against the likes of Minnesota, St. Louis and San Jose.
They won their last game on Thursday in impressive fashion against the Blues, so perhaps there is a chance for the Jets to catch them on a down swing night? For it to happen, the Jets are going to need their offense to come through against a Kings team that is surprisingly stingy on defense.

Nic Petan needs more ice time and the Jets need him to have more ice time, if they want to push for the playoffs. The 21 year old can be a difference maker for the Jets, but only if he is given more opportunity.
With Patrik Laine on the injured reserve, now is the time to give Petan a larger role again.

If hockey games were only 45 minutes long, the Winnipeg Jets would have walked out of the state of Arizona with a victory tonight. But as we all know, hockey is a 60 minute game. The Jets forgot about 15 minutes of the first period and it cost them as they fell 4-3 to the Arizona Coyotes in Glendale.

The Winnipeg Jets have played two games now since Jake McCabe caught Patrik Laine with his head down and lowered the boom, leaving the young phenom with a concussion and leaving the Jets with a big hole on their first line (second line? Line 1A? 1B?). Coach Paul Maurice decided to replace Patty Boomstick's 21 goals this season with a player who scored 21 last season and has not, to this point, come close to resembling the player he has been in the past: Drew Stafford. Let's take a look at how Stafford has preformed in those two games.
