Coach Maurice: How would he describe the 2nd period? How did it get to that point when they are leading 15-6 in the 1st to that result in the 2nd? How do they put that game behind them? Feel like the break is coming at a good time for his team? Puck management.
Coach Julien: How did they turn this game around? The offside call. Max Domi playing more north/south. Happy with the trip west? Any news on Joel Armia?
The Jets are now on Christmas holidays. They will be back on Friday when they host the Blues. While they may be taking some time you can still kick start your day with the Morning Papers which go live tomorrow at 7 am on illegalcurve.com.
