Jets 5 / Lightning 2

Big picture

The win was much-needed by the struggling Jets. It snapped a five-game stretch without a win (two overtime losses), and kept Winnipeg in reasonable touch with their division rivals above them. Tampa Bay, for instance, is just three points higher in the standings this morning.

Little picture

Coach Claude Noel has been harping on wanting his team to play smarter. It did a good job in this department on Monday night, exposing the Lightning as sloppy or weak in their own end on multiple occasions. The first goal, by Evander Kane, also mattered, as did the Jets' penalty killing, which rose to the challenge against Tampa Bay's talented power play. The Jets scored on their second-period power play, while Tampa Bay had 10:43 of man-advantage time in the first two periods.

Game changer

Evander Kane's first goal of the game was large -- considering how the Jets have been playing -- but it was Andrew Ladd's tip-in in the second period to make it 4-1, a goal that followed a Martin St. Louis goal by 1:27, that kept the home team in full command. When confidence has been very thin, the loss of momentum has often hurt the Jets in critical ways.
