Tonight, Tonight: Revenge against the Rangers


I hypothetically circled this date on my hypothetical calender on October 24th. I was mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. The second regular season contest I attended of the new Jets had left me with a foul taste in my mouth. And it wasn't just the beer and Pizza Hotline. No. It was the fact that we lost to the Rangers. Actually that's not true. it was HOW we lost to the Rangers. We out-shot them 28 to 17 and had numerous opportunities that we failed to capitalize on, and then we take some really bad, if they ever existed, penalties that result in 2 powerplay goals that end up being all the Rangers needed in a 2 to 1 game. Gross. 

So I guess that leaves the Jets with only one thing to do tonight: TAKE REVENGE.

Keys to the game:

  • Capitalize on chances: Whether it be on the PP or even strength, if the opportunity arises we need to put it away
  • Penalty kill: Either be effective, or stop taking penalties. Those are the options
  • Dustin Byfuglien: PLAY DEFENSE LIKE THE OTHER 5 GUYS. Bloody hell there are minor leaguers showing you up Buff. Don't let your pretty stat line from last night get to your head, you played poorly. Time to step it up. That goes for Ladd's Little Wheeler too. I like you guys, I really do. And you can show your appreciation with a couple goals. That's all I ask
  • GST: I've promoted you to 'Checking Line'. Congratulations.

New Player Nickname: Chris "Thor" Thorburn. It's so simple it hurts.

Player to boo without mercy: Sean Avery. On a scale of 1 to Carcillo on the Human Garbage scale he's a solid 9.

Prediction: Tie 3-3 . Coach's Noel and Torterella smile, hold hands and skip into the sunset. The Leafs win the Cup. And then I wake up. Hey that rhymed!
