12\/03\/28 Playoff Picture
We all recognize that the Winnipeg Jets chances to make the playoffs are incredibly slim and require a miraculous combination of a seven-game winning streak by the Jets, combined with an absolute tanking down the stretch by the Buffalo Sabres and Washington Capitals.

We all recognize that the Winnipeg Jets chances to make the playoffs are incredibly slim and require a miraculous combination of a seven-game winning streak by the Jets, combined with an absolute tanking down the stretch by the Buffalo Sabres and Washington Capitals. But we must still remember, there is a chance!

Notes: A 3-0 shutout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night means the Toronto Maple Leafs will officially miss the playoffs for the seventh straight season. The last playoff appearance by the Maple Leafs was in spring of 2004...

YESTERDAY'S GAMES:

Buffalo Sabres 5, Washington Capitals 1

Buffalo's 5-1 crushing defeat of the Washington Capitals was actually a really good thing for the Winnipeg Jets. This is due to the fact that the Jets own the tie-break over the Sabres in the standings, but would not beat out the Capitals should they be tied in points at the end of the year. The only obstacle now is finishing at least tied with the Sabres at the end of the year.

The win gives Buffalo a clear hold on eighth place in the Eastern Conference, two points ahead of the Capitals and eight points ahead of the Jets. Their incredible late-season run has continued as they now have won five straight.

TONIGHT'S KEY MATCH-UPS:

New York Rangers at Winnipeg Jets (6:00 PM, TSN)

The Jets are not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs yet, and must focus on the next game at hand, which happens to be tonight against the conference-leading New York Rangers. The Jets have dropped all three of their match-ups against the Rangers this season, being outscored 8-1 in those games.

Ideal Jets Outcome: Jets Win!

OTHER MATCH-UPS:

  • Detroit Red Wings at Columbus Blue Jackets (6:30 PM)
  • Los Angeles Kings at Calgary Flames (8:30 PM)
  • Dallas Stars at Edmonton Oilers (8:30 PM)
  • Colorado Avalanche at Vancouver Canucks (9:00 PM)
  • San Jose Sharks at Anaheim Ducks (9:00 PM)
