The Jets improve to 42-25-4 with their 2-1 win over the Flames to close out this three-game homestand with a second straight victory.

For those who would like to take a deeper dive into the advanced stats here are the results from tonight’s game via Natural Stat Trick.

Game Play:

– Lots of iron for the Flames who hit four posts in the 1st period;
– Jets got the scoring started with a late (8.3 seconds left) 1st period marker by Mark Scheifele;
– Shots were 7-7 after 20 minutes.
– Jets had the benefit of a four-minute power play after Bryan Little got a high stick;
– But the Flames scored a shorthanded goal to tie the game;
– Good work by the second power play unit ended with a Mathieu Perreault go ahead goal to make it 2-1;
– Not much of anything happened in the remainder of the 2nd and the 3rd was a snoozer for the most part.


Connor Hellebuyck records his 30th win of the season which is the second straight year he has hit the 30 win mark.

Coach Maurice:  Thoughts on the power play goal which came after the shorthanded goal.  On the 17 shot blocks, was there more of a buy in?  On ability to throw Roslovic into the power play.  How is the team adjusting to playing without Byfuglien/Morissey?  Thoughts on the homestand are they getting to that Jets identity?  Play of Sami Niku.
