The Jets got excellent goaltending from Eric Comrie, worked hard for a full 60 and are rewarded with a 4-1 defeat of a very good Blues team.

If you were looking for a positive when the Jets were down 1-0 in the 1st period it seemed like Heinola, Chisholm and Kovacevic were just playing their style of game and the nervousness/trepidation we saw in some of their play appeared to be gone.
Paul Stastny scored his 10th and 11th goals of the season in his 30th game. He had 13 goals in 56 games last season for the Jets. The vet is full value on and off the ice.
Kyle Connor now has 24 goals in 41 games for the Jets. The Michigan product is chasing 50.
Fifth straight season that Kyle Connor has hit the 20 assist mark. As I’ve often said with the Jets sniper his passing game is often overlooked but is quite lethal as well.
Heck of a game from Eric Comrie who hasn’t played since December 10th. He made 28 saves on 29 shots. Impressive game from him.
