The Jets Are In The Playoff Picture

Scott Burnside and Pierre LeBrun talk about the soaring Jets and the struggling Capitals.

Burnside: ...they shocked the NHL’s hottest team, the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins 2-1. That was the first regulation loss in 16 games for the Bruins, who look like they have repeat on the brain. But the Jets hunkered down and played tough against the cream of the Eastern Conference. They’ve now won three in a row and seven of their past 10. The goaltending and defense seems to be coming around after some pretty wacky moments through the first quarter of the season. As of this writing, they are but one point out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and you have to commend Claude Noel for keeping his team on track when they could have gone completely sideways.

LeBrun: ...I’m not sure I’ve heard an NHL crowd that loud or passionate all season than what was on display at the MTS Centre last night. There are going to be growing pains as the Jets build this team, but it’s nights like Tuesday that remind you just why it was the right call to put a team back in Manitoba.
