WINNIPEG, CANADA - NOVEMBER 29: Chris Phillips #4 of the Ottawa Senators and Blake Wheeler #26 of the Winnipeg Jets collide at the MTS Centre on November 29, 2011 in Winnipeg, Canada.
Hey yo - I'm still bitter about two days ago. So how can this team pick up the pieces? A home game! Nevermind the fact that if we can't win on the road, we have no chance in realizing the already-slim odds of sneaking into the 8 spot. What might be the most effective strategy for Claude Noel: 1.) Play the Tim Stapleton - Ben Maxwell - Spencer Machacek line 20 minutes, 2.) Play Randy Jones, 3.) Win the game? Let's be serious here...the recent success of the aforementioned MSM Line is but a blip in the sample of Steam Punk, BMax, and Mach 46's talents. They are not this good, nor are they that bad. Ran_y Jones (the guy has no D), on the other hand, is that bad. Let's just play this one normal, not play Ran_y Jones, and win the game - okay?

Keys to the Game
- Do we need a "key"? We're playing at home. That seems "key" enough. Oh, and don't play Ran_y Jones.
Jets (GP 75 35-32-8 78 PTS)
#14 Tim Stapleton -- #49 Ben Maxwell -- #46 Spencer Machacek
#31 Ondrej Pavelec
It's cute, I'm sure, that I'm so hopeful.
Senators (GP 76 38-28-10 86 PTS)
#41 Craig Anderson
As per usual, we get the backup. Let's not embarrass ourselves, please.
Player to boo mercilessly: Alfredsson, I'll never forgive him for shooting the puck at Scott Niedermayer.
Prediction: Winnipeg 4, Ottawa 1...just to get my hopes up.
