He's been a point-per-game pace for the last 8 games. He's averaged 16:32 TOI/G, which is less than Ladd or Burmistrov, and Antropov. He has more points than Ladd or Burmi and is tied with Antro. During this stretch only Kane and Little have outproduced him in points.
He also has the best +/- rating on the team. +7.
I think you need to get behind Wheels a bit. He's playing well now. Just needs to shoot more.
I think a well rested Jets team ends up beating the Bruins tonight. The Bruins are coming off 3 games in 4 nights. The MTS center should prove a tough place tonight. I'm hoping for this game to go to overtime
That's what we were saying about the Devils and it was only by the grace of the hockey gods we pulled that one off
I can already predict this will be a brutal game. If the Jets can come out of this with a victory, they can beat anybody.
Not necessarily. This is a real trap game for the Bs - played yesterday against one of the top teams in the league, now flew overnight from Pittsbrgh to Winnipeg to play a under-rated Jets squad. We could certainly catch them napping tonight.
Boston will be Boston tonight. Even if we get a couple early, at least we know that they can come back on us rather easily. The key to tonights game will simply be 60 minutes of hockey as opposed to 5 here or 10 there. This is the Boston Bruins and if the boys can't get up for this one, then I would question their gameday preperation routine. This has potential to be the best game in Winnipeg so far not only because of the result (a win), but also going over .500, the on ice entertainment should be amazing and it's the defending Stanley Cup champs. LETS GO JETS!!! Thorburn vs Lucic anyone?
