Note: The Jets won a wild one last night as Josh Morrissey’s game winner in OT delivered his side a 5-4 comeback win which improved them to 20-9-2 on the season. The Jets are a remarkable 10-4-0 this season when giving up the first goal of the game and despite blowing a 3-1 lead just continue to show that they are never out of a game. They left for Chicago following the game as they will play the Hawks tonight on a roll having gone 7-1-0 which includes two wins over the aforementioned Hawks during this streak. Be sure to check out the pre-game report for insight ahead of the action with puck drop at 7:30 pm.
