BW Chart for Jets vs Sabres 1/19

After a rough defeat at the hands of the New Jersey Devils (regardless of its redeeming qualities), the Jets really needed a reassuring win, the kind that could affirm that they are deserving of their place at the middle of the pack. Thankfully, that win came Thursday night in a 4-1 defeat of the Buffalo Sabres. As the above link suggest, a victory of that magnitude can sometimes be deceiving, particularly when looking at our BWs. So, how did this one look?

Key

Vertical blue lines -- Our goals

Vertical black lines -- Their goals

Shaded green -- Powerplays

  • Pretty sweet, eh?
  • We dominated the first 35 minutes, had a 5 minute dip, then played even hockey to maintain our 3-1 lead. The icing on the cake for me was that we got a couple of powerplay goals, despite the fact that Dustin Byfuglien has yet to return. Call me crazy, but I kind of like Tobias Enstrom being the focal point of our offence from the blue line...
  • Our BWs for the last three games (even with the loss in the middle), along with our season-long Fenwick performance, suggest that this is not a bad team, and potentially a playoff contender. We get one more at home tonight before we head on the road again for 5 straight road games in the East. Yikes.
