Maybe, but the lesson they were supposed to have learned from the previous game was not to sink back and give up a goal in the last minute. The next game, they give up two goals in the last minute. It was really our Washington game in reverse, except we had a 3 goal advantage instead of the 2 that the Caps had.

I remember thinking that it was an impressive move for Tampa to pull its goalie when down three with barely a minute left. They deserve a lot of credit for their play at the end.

I'm not 100% ready to believe the team is finally for real, after they fooled me several times this year already. At any rate, the fact that they are in 3rd at this point in the season thrills me despite games played.

We play Florida twice more, and it's critical we beat them both times in regulation if we want to win the Southeast

Washington looks dead in the water. No Ovy, Backstrom, and terrible goaltending. They also look like the goalie situation is really hurting their game. They have no confidence out there.

Toronto has a similar problem to Washington. I will reserve judgement until Monday, as Burke has shown he has no problem sacrificing the future for the present. If they picked up a goalie and scorer, they could get back into the race.

Overall, there are 4 teams fighting for 2 spots. With the Jets being the only hot team out of the 4, I'm starting to like our odds.

I still have this worry in the back of my mind the team will revert to its January self.

Sorry, Reed, but:

Daynz' cat scratched her up pretty bad when he saw it and Reed is probably going to take a hit out on me soon.

As long as the Jets are getting points and playing well, I gotta keep it up

P.S. The delicious irony is that JB is a big Leafs fan so using his likeness to knock them out of the playoffs is perfect!

To the Jets credit, they were down 2 men. I knew TB would score, I just didn't think they'd do it twice. I was nowhere near as panicked as I was at the Philly game.

Agreed. After what I consider a pretty lackluster season from him (not talking about stats) We're finally seeing Ladd play like he can. It's really refreshing

Just being nosey, but I'd like to know what it was about just for the hell of it.Gave my 304 seats to a co-worker last night and when I asked him he said that he saw nothing of the sort so who knows
Our group's seats are in 304 (row 7). Talked to my co-worker who went last night and she didn't see anything, either.

Personally, the worst I've seen is some guy get escorted out for throwing a cup. I think that was during the Dec. 29th Kings game.

I'm just getting a chance to read through some of the posts from last night's game, and I agree with many of the posters, that walking out of the arena the win felt good, but there sure was a sour taste about how they played in the last 10 minutes. My guess is Tampa might have pulled off the comeback if they had a little more time. But a win is a win and I like how it looks with the Jets sitting in 3rd.

During Noel's press conference today, we mentioned that he expects Bogo back early next week, so I'm guessing the Oilers on Monday. Too bad as I would really like to see him in their against the Blues. That's going to be a tough game and we do need to play a strong defensive game against them.

Yes now that I go back and think about it I believe KW's version of beaver was just a euphemism for female genitalia.
