4 day layoff better not equal a flat start. Winnepeg can put the puck in the net.
DiPietro in goal again? I would say it is Monty time, Dip was ok but not outstanding v. Sharks, played too far back in his net on two goals.
We need this win. It would mean 4 points out of the last possible 6, get us back on track. A loss here would be real bad.
A game? What's that? Hopefully Montoya gets the start this time around. If I was Capuano I'd sit down with DP and tell him everytime he makes a bad turnover with the puck that results in a goal he loses a start that he would've had. That'll keep him in the net more.
We need a win badly, even if it's against Lose-a-peg
Winnipeg fans think we are an automatic win for them as well!!! We can't call any team an automatic win, with the state our franchise is in... Winnable game, tonight, yes for us... But it will not surprise me at all if we lose or even get "pollaxed."
However we WILL NOT win Saturday as the Caps could spot us a 4-0 lead and still beat us 8-4...
I'm a Jet STH and rest assured that any Winnipeg fans who think this will be an "easy win" are deluding themselves. We are a young team with loads of potential but losing Engstrom for a couple weeks is going hurt... no doubt.
Can't see a blowout by either team tonight so I'm hoping for a tight game.
Being back in the NHL is awesome...... they said it would never happen.. yet here we are.
good luck tonight and I hope your arena fiasco gets solved soon
Former Islanders all-star Mark Flood () was re-called from the farm this morning for the Jets.
This game will go either way. From the way I understand it, you guys are less confident with DiPietro in net, and we're way less confident with 2 AHLers (Flood and Festerling), 1 fringe NHLer (Jones) and only three NHL regulars (Bogosian, Byfuglien and Oduya) on the blueline.
