Note: The Jets came out strong last night and while they couldn’t sustain it for the full 60 minutes they used their talent in extra time to win it in overtime to close within two points of first place Toronto. However they didn’t have any time to enjoy last night’s win as they had to board a plane for Edmonton where they will kick off a seven-game road trip with a contest against the Oilers.
