Yes, I know that any team can win any game on any night, and thus every game is a winnable game. But it would be nice to be good enough consistently to get some respect from the NHL community.
As far as I'm concerned the rest of the league and their homer broadcasters can pound sand. Keep disregarding the Jets all the way to missing the playoffs.

Excellent game. If they play like this (which I don't think they can keep up... but I'm willing to be persuaded), they have a great chance for playoffs and even possibly a division title.

Great game overall by Jets again. Nothing more, as I am fairly decently drunk...
Antro REALLY impressed me tonight. I'm an Antro fan anyway, but I felt that tonight he really brought his battle level up.

Loved the physical play by the team in general - as Sweech mentions, when they're physical, AND they move their feet, I feel they can play with anyone and have a good chance of winning.

What I love about tonight: basking in the fun of this win, Jets sneaking into that 8th spot, AND I haven't had a chance to go read the Leafs PGT after their implosion tonight.

Yeah, it was a good game but I wish we hadn't chanted him there. I was scowling in my seat.

Amazing how good a night this was in total for the Jets, so many of the teams we needed to lose actually did lose!

Did Torts duck the media tonight? I haven't seen/heard anything.

I wondered how you were handling tonight, what with your 1a and 1b teams playing.

Another 'A' game from the Jets. Lundqvist was tremendous, against an average goalie having an average game that was probably 5-1.

I can't overstate the amount of confidence the Jets defense corps is playing with right now. For the most part, their breakout passes are surgically precise. They're confidently stepping up at the blueline to challenge skilled forwards rather than allowing them to enter the zone with a full head of steam. They're guarding the danger area with resolve, and doing a great job generating offense from the point.

Buff, Clitty, Stu, Bogo, Hains. Yeah you to Big Meech, why not. Take a bow, you've stepped it up in a huge way.

Oh yeah, and that Pavelec guy hasn't been bad either...

Well folks, we now have Tie Breaker against the NY Rangers. With having Tie Breakers on the Rangers and NJ, it puts us in a better position at the end of the season if we tie either team for the last playoff spot.

Win in Toronto to take that tie breaker and then on to Ottawa for that tie breaker.
GO Jets GO

Thats just the Toronto-centric media. Watching CBC, TSN and Sportsnet national is just painful most the time. That why "Leafs Elimination Day" is so wonderful across Canada, don't have to listen to that garbage for the playoffs. One of the best Leafs elimination moments was when the NYI beat them in a shootout on the last day of the regular season. Beauty.

That said,
we can't expect any favours from the refs on Saturday - home crowd in TO and national CBC broadcast.....

So now a side question surfaces (again): What do we do with Burmie?

Personally I love him, and I think he's got oodles of talent...just perhaps immature. But as time goes on, Noel continues to bench him, you have to wonder how long someone as young as Burmie will be content to sit in the pressbox. Yet here we are winning....

Does he come back next game?

Man, that was an amazing night.

Pavs was solid.

Big Buff generating offense once again.

Kane is using his speed even more effectively now, and having more than one line that can apply pressure is key.

The Jets played a really heavy game and won the hard battles, basically. Blocked a lot of shots in the last half of the game. They put a pounding on the Rangers D at near every opportunity. They are playing like a team that is playing for their coach and each other, a really solid game top to bottom, aside from some sloppiness at times. They've bought into playing a team game finally.

I hope they go with the same lineup on Saturday.

Torts post game was short, about three fairly softball questions that he answered calmly then someone probably from the Winnipeg media asked him about the tortorella chants.

Torts clearly was about to blow when his handler guy said "next question" then right away he ended it.

Any chance they send him back to the AHL, arguably where he should have been the last few years anyway? That team is going nowhere, and he could get some big minutes.

With the IceCaps visiting the Albany Devils in 2 weeks, that's a move I could get behind.

EDIT: Is he waiver eligible now? I'm not too clear on those rules. He has played a lot of NHL games at this point.
