This is, by far, the best team we have seen on this home stand. It'll take an A game to win this one, the Jets won't sneak away with 2 points unless we see a solid game from all the lines. Puck possession is key against the Isles, they play hard on the boards, they are fast and they are great on the cycle. While Tavares is obviously the biggest threat, the Isles D put up points, Grabner has looked really good lately and Josh Bailey, while he's cooled off a bit, has been unreal on both sides of the puck in the second half.

Isles D is a really gifted unit, they really move the puck around nicely and generate a lot of offence from the back end. Streit and Vishnovsky can be pretty deadly.

Limit the turnovers and be smart with the puck once we get possession... those things will be the keys to victory.
