During Thursday night's game against the Islanders, the injury bug took another swipe at the Jets roster.

The Jets managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory as the gave up a goal with less than 30 seconds left in the 3rd to go into overtime and then gave up the game winner after a Brock Nielson shot deflected off the face of a back-checking Nik Ehlers and straight onto the stick of Kyle Okposo who then slammed the puck past Michael Hutchinson.

*sigh* Only 19 more of these games to go.
