After going scoreless for seven games, the Jets power play has now scored three times in the last two games -- once in a loss to St. Louis Tuesday night and then twice more Thursday night against the Avalanche.


With Evander Kane on the shelf, Jets forward Chris Thorburn has moved up to the second line and seen his role on the club expand exponentially.

Consider: In Thorburn's first 18 games this season, he played an average of just 6:17 per night and was 3-3 on faceoffs. And in his last 4 games heading into last night? Thorburn's ice time has more than doubled to an average of 13:44 per game and he's 9-13 in the faceoff circle.


The Jets wrap up a three-game Central Division homestand this week with a matinee game Saturday afternoon at MTS Centre against the Dallas Stars.
