"Ø"Ø CRITICAL NO. 52:
The length, in seconds, of the two-man advantage the Hurricanes had in the second period. Zero shots by the Hurricanes on the 5-on-3.
"We battled, but the most important thing was the penalty killing in the second period. That 5-on-3, they didn't have a shot, we blocked everything and Pards (Jets defenceman Adam Pardy) made a great block on (Alex) Semin. Those things helped us to get the win tonight." -- Pavelec.
"Ø"Ø CAPITAL IDEA:
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will take in the Jets-Capitals tilt on Thursday as part of a pre-game Olympic send-off event. The Caps announced Kerry will participate in a ceremonial puck drop with Olympians from both teams and address the Caps in the locker-room prior to the team's pregame warm-up.
In the Canes vs. Jets/Thrashers series, the road team has won 16 of the last 22 games.
"Ø"Ø ON THE FARM:
The St. John's IceCaps had their six-game win streak snapped in a 3-2 loss to the Providence Bruins Tuesday night. Adam Lowry and Ben Chiarot scored for the Jets' farm club.
"Ø"Ø UP NEXT:
The Jets headed to Washington, D.C., immediately after the contest for the third game of their four-game road trip, Thursday against the Washington Capitals (6 p.m., TSN Jets/TSN 1290).
