“That’s way out of my league. I try to win them back, not forward,” said Jets centre Jim Slater, after an impressive 15-7 night Tuesday in the faceoff circle, about teammate Bryan Little’s go-forward faceoff play in the neutral zone for Tuesday’s winning goal.

Jets’ penalty-killing has improved dramatically in the last month. It was 76.6 per cent as of Nov. 12, 24th in the league. Today, having given up just five power-play goals in the last 10 games, it’s 81.8 per cent, and up to 20th.
