JNGD 22 Instant(ish) Recap: Keeping the Good Times Rolling

The Jets continued their winning ways, guaranteeing themselves at least a split of the four game road trip, beating the Anaheim Ducks 4-1 on Friday afternoon.

The Jets got great performances from Nikolaj Ehlers and Bryan Little, each putting up three points.  Ehlers snapped an eight game goalless drought with his ninth and 10th goals of the season, while Little snapped a four game goalless drought with his third of the year.

The Jets powerplay, which was 1/28 in the last seven meetings against Anaheim, went 2/3 in this game, with goals from Ehlers and Little.  Connor Hellebuyck made 30 saves for the Jets, improving his record to 12-2-2 on the season.

The Jets improved their record to 14-5-3 on the season, pulling to within 2 points of St Louis for first place in the Western Conference.  Who did you like in this game?  What do you think will happen tomorrow night, when the Jets visit San Jose?  Who would you start in the game tomorrow night?  And most importantly, do you #BelieveInTheJets?
