from Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press,
Eight days without any points and the Winnipeg Jets find themselves descending the stairs into the NHL’s basement. They’re not quite all the way down but they can see the cellar floor.
In a condensed 48-game season going to sleep for a week can draw the curtains on a team’s playoff sunlight and that has been the case for the Jets.
Three-straight home losses this week and Winnipeg has been stuck at 11 points since Feb. 9th, while much of the league has either moved past them or built on their lead.
The Washington Capitals also have 11 points but sit behind the Jets in the Eastern Conference because they’ve played more games. Only the Columbus Blue Jackets with 10 points have less than the Jets in the NHL.
