Jets and Habs both have something to prove as regular season winds down

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets' playoff hopes are on the line Thursday when they face the Montreal Canadiens.

A win is a must, then Winnipeg needs a lot of luck — since either the Ottawa Senators or New York Rangers have to lose their remaining games for the Jets to get in.

Forward Blake Wheeler says the chances may be slim but they're going to be giving it all they've got in their last game of the regular season.

The Montreal Canadiens are also looking to find the form that has already secured them a playoff berth.

The Habs have lost five of their last six games.

Quote of the Day
