Jets on a Deadline – Jets 2 Flyers 1 in shootout (Jan 31, 2012)
The Jets faced a tough Philly team tonight but pulled off a huge 2-1 shootout victory. The 1st goal of the season for Chris Thorburn couldn’t have come at a better time as it drew the Jets even. While I have been predicting a goal by Thorburn for quite a number of games, I did tweet out that he was going to score literally seconds before he scored the goal (#yourwelcomechris). Bryan Little finished the game off as he scored the only goal of the shootout.
Important road win. Now the Jets are off to Florida to battle their division rivals in back-to-back’s on Thursday and Friday.
