I had a nice little blurb here, and then the dashboard ate it. So, here's the Cliff's Notes:

  • Jets don't score a lot, don't give up a lot either.
  • Jets take a lot of penalties, Jackets lone bright spot is the Power Play.
  • We now get everyone's backup goalies. There's a feather in your cap.
  • Wennberg on the fourth line: WTF?/
