Jets Recover Shootout by Momma Gouche

Andrew Ladd scored 1:23 into the first period Tuesday night to give the Winnipeg Jets a 1-0 lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning. The jets were everywhere and challenged the net relentlessly the first half of the period. It looked like th jets were going to run away with the game. Suddenly the Lightning came alive and Martin St Louis tied the score at 10:27. Winnipeg tallied twice in the second period, but Tampa Bay came back with 2 in the third. Unbelievably … to me … the game went into overtime … and then into shootout. Mike Satorelli and Andrew Ladd scored, to win the game. It was a scary 15-20 minutes for the Winnipeg fans, as this game was criitcal to stay in the running for the playoffs. The Washington Capitals continue to win, but the Toronto Maple Leafs loss to them still leaves them in 5th spot. Fortunately the New York Rangers lost to the Philadelphia Flyers and leaves the Jets tied in points with them, but the Flyers have one game in hand. What a strain it has become on me, trying to get the Jets in one door or the other.
