No pressure but Winnipeg Jets don't have much wiggle room to make playoffs

WINNIPEG - With teams ahead of them holding ground, it's make or break time as the Winnipeg Jets play the final three of a six-game homestand and try to nudge their way into a playoff spot.

Coach Claude Noel says it's an exciting time and a little snow that fell in Winnipeg is a good reminder it's still hockey season.

The Jets are preparing for the Tampa Bay Lightning, who visit Tuesday night.

Tampa has struggled which should be good news.

But forward Chris Thorburn says they can't take anyone for granted, no matter what their record.

He says the Jets have to keep it simple and stick to the formula that has helped them win their last three games.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
