Heck of a game by our Jets, no passengers to be found tonight. The fact that they were able to overcome two soft goals on Ondrej (who, to his credit, made some real key stops in the 2nd) is a positive sign, especially against such a dangerous opponent.

Very impressed by our entire D corps tonight; even Clitsome bounced back after some bad giveaways in the first. Hainsey-Stuart was solid, Buff-Enstrom was even better. I must say, Toby has really elevated his game this year, I'm finally seeing the player that our Thrashers fans were gushing about on a consistent basis, rather than just the flashes I saw last year. Postma is finally starting to settle down, and man does he ever have a bomb for a shot.

I was commenting at the game how there's something about this Jets team that seems different, and I finally figured out what it is; we've established an identity. There were glimpses of it last year, but the word I'd use to describe this years team is rangy. I don't know what it is, but this Jets team seems to cover the ice and clog the 'power lanes' much better than they did last year. When they're on they can suffocate teams, as I thought we did for most of the 2nd and 3rd.

It's still early, but I'm really happy about where this team seems to be headed. And of course, things will only get better once Bogosian gets healthy.
