Keep Ovie quiet and the going should be good. As long as we get some quality shots on net, I do not trust their goaltending to be able to steal this one. If we want to make the playoffs, we have to be able to pick up two points against teams that are having their struggles. Big game coming up, and the Jets have been playing like they mean business as of late.
Fehr is doing well again / I'm both happy and sad...
For the third time in his career he's scoring at top6 rates per icetime while playing on the third line.
He's getting points slower than Ladd, Wheeler and Kane... but faster than Little, Burmistrov and Antropov.
He's getting goals slower than Ladd, Kane and Wheeler... but almost twice as fast as next best Burmistrov and Jokinen.
(names are in order of rates)
That's where I got it from. This part is interesting:
“It feels great to be healthy again,” Fehr said. “Obviously last year I wasn’t feeling my best and it showed. So I want to show them what I can do definitely. I want to show them that that wasn’t what I was like last year, and if it helps our team win that would be great.
He came back too early for us, his shoulder was still aching I'm sure. He had the summer + the lockout to rest it and he looks so much better. I watched one of their games where he streaked down the boards and wired it in. I was like WHO IS THIS MAN and my heart kinda sank when it was Fehr.
Last 6 games have been best hockey I have seen Jets play, including last year. Really enjoy watching the guys out there. Even last game wasn't as pretty as the blood, sweat and tears they showed on the road but they still found a way to win. Winning ugly is a prerequisite to make the playoffs.
Hope they continue the effort and if they look like slugs then hope Pavs keep them in there until Buff decides enough is enough. The way Caps are playing so far, I would like to see Jets dictate pace of game from puck drop. Ovie is great but not nearly the threat he was 2 years ago.
