Free Press ★★★

★ Olli Jokinen, Jets. Right place, right time for a big night decided in the crunch time of the game’s final eight minutes.

★★ Dustin Byfuglien, Jets. Just a point, plus-one but the big man gets plenty of heat on his off nights, so he should get equal credit for his sharp, alert ones.

★★★ Devin Setoguchi, Jets. The sniper has come alive with three goals in his last four games.

SLUMP ENDS

Jets right-winger Blake Wheeler saw his goal-scoring slump end on Monday. He potted the empty-netter with 51 seconds to play after a selfless play by defenceman Jacob Trouba. Wheeler had gone 14 games without a goal before that, his last marker Oct. 29 in St. Louis. In that time, however, Wheeler had eight assists.

500 IS LOUSY

From a player with experience in this area, .500 doesn’t interest Rangers’ sniper Rick Nash. New York is now 14-14-0 after losing to the Jets.

"Good teams don’t hover around .500 all season," Nash said. "They put winning streaks together and we can’t find that streak right now. We need to do a better job, and we’ll figure it out."
