Jets Losing Latitude by Momma Gouche

The Winnipeg Jets put in a good effort after falling behind 2-0 in the first period Saturday night in their game against the Florida Panthers. Nik Antropov scored at 5:06 of the second and again at 5:54 of the third. ( both goals assisted by Kyle Wheller) Unfotunately less than a minute later Kris Versteeg put Floida ahead again by one. Alex Burmistov tied the game at 13:45 and there was no scoring in overtime. The Panthers struck the net 3 times in the shootout, but the Jets only hit the mark twice. Winnipeg outshot Florida 44-23. The Jets are going to need more than single points to get back in the stream for the play-offs. Dustin Byfuglien, who is strong on offense as well as defense, should be returning this week; but it will take him awhile to get back in stride.The Jets have seven more road games ahead of them before they go home, so hopefully they can at least win  four of them. They take on the Carolina Hurricanes tomorrow night.
