The Jets looked like a tired bunch and despite tying the game in the middle frame, a few too many miscues allowed the Flames to arrest their losing streak at four games and halt the Winnipeg winning streak at three. The Jets fall to 21-12-2 on the season which keeps them in 2nd spot in the North Division (one point ahead of Edmonton) with the Oilers losing to the Leafs in OT this evening.
