The Winnipeg Jets Are In The Playoff Picture

from Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press,

It's a fair and timely question and one certainly worth asking right now about the Winnipeg Jets:

Who the heck are these guys, anyway?

Given up for dead three weeks ago, the Jets have ripped off the toe tag and jumped off the slab to get back into the Western Conference playoff discussion by going 8-2 in their first 10 games under new head coach Paul Maurice.

And the effort they served up in Sunday afternoon's 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre now appears to be more of a trend than a blip. They got solid goaltending from Al Montoya and good work from everyone in white and double blue en route to their second straight victory and fourth in the last five games.

The Jets are now 27-25-5 and with 59 points have moved into a tie with Nashville and Dallas -- four points back of Vancouver for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.
