Jets @ Canucks | Thu Mar 8 | 9PM CT | Game 68 | "Schticky Edition..."

Game Preview

Last 10: Winnipeg 6-2-2; Vancouver 5-3-2

Season Series: Just another inter-conference one-night-only engagement; the two franchises have met twice
in a season only once, way back in 2000-01. It's been mostly Canucks since the Thrashers/Jets entered the
League in 1999-2000, Vancouver putting together an 8-2-1-1 record and winning five of the last six
meetings. It will, however, be the first time the two cities fielded teams against each other since Feb.
21, 1996 at old Winnipeg Arena, a 5-3 Canucks victory.

Big Story: While the Canucks run neck-and-neck with the Blues and Red Wings for the top seed in the West,
the Jets have been trying to solidify their playoff position, currently in the eighth slot two points
ahead of the Capitals. A 5-1-2 homestand definitely helped hold off any challengers, but now they have to
run a western gauntlet through powerful Vancouver and desperate Calgary.

Team Scope:

Jets: Not only was the homestand productive from a standings point of view, the points came against
several teams who are looking to do the same things the Jets are. Wins over the Lightning, Panthers and
Sabres have at least kept some of the dogs at bay, but now they have to duplicate that success on the
road, where they will be playing nine of their final 15 games. Six of those come against Eastern
Conference opponents and four are within the Southeast Division.

"We haven't played as well on the road as we have at home, and if we could have played .500 hockey on the
road we'd be sitting in a little bit better position than we are right now," Blake Wheeler told NHL Live
on Tuesday. "We can't sit on the crutch that we are a young team anymore.

"I think we have gone through the battles all year, and right now it shouldn't matter where we're
playing. We're going to have to win on the road to make it into the playoffs and even if we make it in
the playoffs we have to play well on the road or we'll be out in the first round. I think we just need to
learn from the journey that's gotten us here, we've battled all year to get to this position and
hopefully we can apply the lessons we've learned in the last month or two."

Canucks: A look at the standings won't say much. The Canucks are playing with the big boys and vying for
the top spot in the Western Conference and the Presidents' Trophy. The reason it's so close, though, is
because the Canucks have lost four of their last five games, including two of their last three at home.
Most alarmingly, their 5-3 loss to the Stars on Tuesday is their second straight in regulation, the first
time they've done that since losing to Minnesota and St. Louis on Nov. 3-4.

The reason is simple. No conversation about the Canucks goes without a mention of the Sedins and Daniel
and Henrik have 1 point between them in the last six games. Ryan Kesler has 1 goal in his last 13 games.
Defensively, the Sedins and Alex Burrows were a combined minus-7 against Dallas. Coach Alain Vigneault
has taken a patient approach.

"Those guys have been the foundation of this team since I have been here and I have a lot of trust and
faith in them," he told the Vancouver Sun. "You have to trust that they are going to figure it out."

Who's Hot: Blake Wheeler has 16 points in his last 9 games and a plus-10 rating. He leads the Jets in
points, assists and plus-minus. Evander Kane had his eight-game points streak stopped by the Sabres on
Monday, which means he now has 7 goals and 15 points in his last nine games. … Kevin Bieksa has 4 assists
in his last three games.

Injury Report: Zach Bogosian has been out since last Thursday with a lower-body injury. … Canucks
defenseman Keith Ballard (neck, concussion) is not expected back until the playoffs at least.

Stat Pack: Both teams are in the top 10 League-wide on the power play, Vancouver third at 20.8 percent
entering Wednesday's action, the Jets ninth at 19.6 percent. Man-down, though, the Canucks' penalty kill
holds a decisive edge at a sixth-ranked 86.6 percent to Winnipeg's 23rd-ranked 80.7 percent. Like with
everything else, though, the Jets are a lot better at home than on the road. Their power play leads the
NHL at 24.8 percent at home, while it dips to 27th at 12.6 percent away from the noisy MTS Centre.

Puck Drop: And it's noise that concerns the Jets right now, as in making their own away from home,
according to Dustin Byfuglien, who made the point after Monday's 3-1 win over the Sabres.

"Buff said it's about creating our own noise," Chris Thorburn said in the Winnipeg Free Press. "Obviously
we're going into some pretty hostile buildings. We've got to play our game and execute our game plan.
We've kind of dumbed things down here. It's baby steps. For a lot of us this is new, being in this kind
of a race this late in the season. It's exciting. It's fresh. We're proud to be in this position.

"We've just grown as a team. We've become closer and we're just learning how to win. Whether it's
experience or whatever it is, it's worked out well for us. We've developed a lot of team toughness
throughout the course of the year. It's gotta show coming up on this road trip."

Great GDT, one of the funnier ones we've had all year (and I do read it )

I really hope we win this one, it would go a long way to us making the playoffs. That said, Vancouver is a very good team and my expectations aren't high. I think we CAN beat them, I'm just not sure we WILL. If our top two lines continue to roll I think we can win, especially if the Sedins stay quiet.
I hope 3-2 Jets (OT)
I fear 4-1 'Nucks.

Oh man, it is glorious. Tell me I'm not the only one to click on that video of Wheeler to see if it would actually play. And is that a (Bryan) Little Schticky? I see what you did there...

This is the first time I've ever seen the Schticky commercial. I can't believe that commercial is real .

Really good job once again, YWGinYYZ

This GDT is full of
Your skills constantly impress me YWGinYYZ

I don't have a good feeling about this game, but those feelings usually end up with a win for the Jets. Thinking of it that way makes me feel good, and now I'm worried I'm feeling too good and we'll lose. It's a whole thing I do. Logic is neither appreciated nor welcome in my head.

The only thing I'm not liking is the time of this game. 9pm? Yuck.

Awesome GDT!

I'm hoping the GST line do a few impressions of the Schticky hitting the cockroach as they quash a few unwanted pests against the boards.

Edit: just noticed that the GST line is now the "Sniper GS" line.

Very nice game day thread!

I love this match-up. My all time favorite, its been awhile! I wish this game was at the MTS centre. Im not sure what to expect and what to say. I know the Jets are fighting for a playoff spot so i won't be mad if the Jets collect the 2 points here. (You'll never catch me sayin that again because im a Canuck 4 life and i genuinely dislike 29 other franchises... However, i live in the Peg, i feel the emotion and this inception year is special but my heart and soul will always belong to the Canucks. )

Lets hope for OT !!

Heritage Classic -- please get it -- and make it against VAN CITY !!

Another great GDT. This is going to be a tough one. Canucks will be an angry team, and the Sedins will catch fire sooner than later. If Jets can pull this one off no one will doubt they are for real.

The Jets are on fire right now, playing their best games and Wellwood is going to unleash his fury against his former team and get mad, really mad. I predict a hat trick by mad dog Wellwood in a 5-1 rout
