HIGHLIGHT REEL Blues 3 / Jets 2 (SO)

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 25/2/2012 (2959 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.


Big picture

Jets' fans need to ask themselves this question, forgetting for a moment the lopsided shots on goal advantage (42-16): when this critical eight-game homestand began -- a stretch some have said could define the season -- would they have been happy with eight of a possible 10 points through five games? Thought so. This is a team with some flaws, but it remains in the playoff picture with March approaching and that's got to mean something.

Little picture

The resiliency factor is key for the Jets. Winnipeg had been 2-14-1 this year when trailing after the first period, but rallied to tie it in the second and earned a point against a stifling defensive squad.


In the shootout, the Jets' Blake Wheeler scored first, but the Blues' Jaroslav Halak then shut the door on Bryan Little, Evander Kane and Andrew Ladd. St. Louis got shootout goals by Andy McDonald and David Perron for the 'W.'
