Winnipeg Jets seeing more depth from Evander Kane as he aims for playoffs

WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane admits it's frustrating that he has never seen the NHL playoffs from the inside.

But this season he's doing what he can to change that, as the Jets prepared for the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday night.

Kane has stepped up with a more physical all-round game and is now back with Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler on the team's No. 1 line.

Coach Claude Noel is trying to get more production out of his top lines and Kane has traded places with team captain Andrew Ladd.

Kane likes to shoot the puck and that's something the Jets have needed.

Kane leads all Jets with his 30 shots on goal so far this season, good for three goals and two assists.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
