JNGD.36 Flight Plan: Jets Go Bear Hunting

Today the Jets enter TD Gardens ready to take on the Boston Bruins and leave on a three game win streak. After the Jets’ 6-4 win against the Predators, hopes are continuing to soar for the Jets as they continue to eye the playoffs.

Recently for the Jets…

The Jets are coming off of a 6-4 win against the Nashville Predators and are looking to end the 3 game road trip with a win. The Jets have had a potent offence all season and that showed against the Predators with scoring over four goals for the 18th time this season.

One of the frustrations with Paul Maurice is he refuses to adjust his lineup and letting some lines struggle. Tonight may change that, though. There are rumours that Nik Ehlers and Kyle Connor will flip lines.

Recently for the Bruins…

The Bruins are third in the Atlantic and are trucking along. They are coming into tonight’s game on a two game streak as well and are equally eager to build on their streak. The Bruins have been struck with a case of the flu and we’ll see what their line up looks like tonight because Brad Marchand, Ryan Spooner, and Riley Nash could all be out.

Tuukka Rask will get the start in net for the Bruins.

Recently between both teams…

The Jets are 22-29-8 all time against the Bruins, but have lost their past three games against them. In fact, the Jets have only won one game against the Bruins since the Thrashers moved to Winnipeg. Since Boston is in the East, the Jets do not have the most expansive history against them.

Gameday Prediction

I’m giving the win tonight to the Jets by a 4-3 score. Despite both teams being decently hot coming into this game, the Jets aren’t under the weather. As well, the Jets’ offence is just too good to ignore.
