In a game the Jets absolutely needed to get some points from they lose 4-1 to Igor Shesterkin and the Rangers despite outshooting the visitors by a wide margin. Winnipeg falls to 24-22-10 on the season and remain eight points back of the second wild card spot.

The opening goal of the game by Nikolaj Ehlers was the 150th of his NHL career. That moves him into sole possession of 4th spot in Jets 2.0 all-time goal scoring list. He was tied with Bryan Little.
The Jets almost gave up a hat trick at home for the third straight game… Chris Kreider was looking to join Jason Robertson and Josh Anderson. That’s not good for business.
