Something I haven't seen much of in the GDT and PGT is comments on Pavs. I thought Pavs played very well for us and deserved a much better fate. Without him early, all the terrible penalties and our terrible PK wouldn't have mattered. I don't know if I can fault him on any of their goals.

In regards to special teams, is there a way to tell what the Jets record would be if every game we had a net 0 in special teams? I.E if the other team got 1 PP goal we get 1 PP goal, etc.

Same on story in regards to the Jets special teams, AND the fact that the Jets cannot keep their minds in the game when their up and need to close it out. As Brogosian mentioned, a good team gets that 3-1 lead on the road and goes on lockdown. We get a 3-1 lead and take weak penalties and give it up.

Games like this make me happy that Chevy wants to build a tougher team. Nothing against Wellwood (liked his play last year), Antro (like what he brings), and pretty much all of our defenseman besides Bogosian, but the Jets were getting run all over the place (a lot of it late), and they needed to start running the Flyers back. Just 1 more reason to count the days for Trouba and Lowry to be in the lineup. Tangradi also better start hitting everything not wearing a Jets jersey or he'll become replaceable in a hurry.

Agree with all the comments on Wright. Would love to see another Wright to replace Thorburn on the 4th line.

Buff didn't look like his usual self to me either. We do need his points, but I also want to see him man handle guys in front of Pavs, and make them regret going to our net. Maybe the groin injury is still bothering him.
