The Jets defeat the Sabres 3-1 tonight and avenge their loss in Buffalo from last month. With the win the Jets improve to 34-28-6 and move back into a Wildcard playoff spot for now.

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


-Kyle Connor scored his 34th and 35th goals of the season which tied and then surpassed his career high which he set last year at 34.  Connor was also was able to achieve this milestone in 14 fewer games.  He also hits 70 points for the first time in his career and is just two points away from hitting 200 points in his career.

-Tucker Poolman scored the first shorthanded goal of his career which was also his first game winning goal as well.

Coach Maurice:  What was going through his mind when Tucker Poolman is jumping into the play on the shorthanded goal for the Jets.  What did he see from Kyle Connor on the night?  Why has putting the top line back together been paying off?  Is this the best he has seen the top line playing against the other team’s best?  How has Kyle Connor blossomed into one of the best goal scorers in the NHL?  Easy to see the difference in his game when he came back up from the AHL?
