It's no April Fool's Day prank, the Winnipeg Jets are officially eliminated from the playoff race. With three games remaining in the 2011-2012 regular season, the Jets sit in tenth place in the Eastern Conference with 81 points. This means the maximum amount of points they could finish the 82-game season with would be 87, which would bring them short of eigth spot, currently held by the Washington Capitals with 88 points.

The Jets now move on to find away to keep competing for three more games, Tuesday against the Panthers, next Thursday against the Islanders, and finally returning home next Saturday, April 7th to host the Tampa Bay Lightning.

LAST NIGHT'S GAME:

Winnipeg Jets 2, Tampa Bay Lightning 3 (OT)

The Winnipeg Jets battled hard on Saturday night, scoring twice in the second period to lead 2-1 heading into the third period. Ryan Malone scored both regulation time goals for the Lightning.

Any other time of the season, the Jets would have been very happy to take three of the possible four points in their back-to-back games (Friday, 4-3 OT win in Carolina, Saturday 2-3 OT loss in Tampa Bay). Every single point was required to keep their playoff hopes alive, so dropping the one point in overtime against the Lightning was a disappointing loss for the Jets.

SUNDAY'S MATCH-UPS:

  • Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins (11:30 am, NBC)
  • Ottawa Senators at New York Islanders (2:00 PM)
  • Florida Panthers at Detroit Red Wings (3:00 pm)
  • Boston Bruins at New York Rangers (6:00 pm, TSN2)
  • Minnestoa Wild at Chicago Blackhawks (6:00 pm)
  • Edmonton Oilers at Anaheim Ducks (7:00 pm)
