POWERED UP:

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.

STEPPING UP:

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.

UP NEXT:

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.
