Fenwick Timelines!! Many number munchers around the web will tout the value of Fenwick and Corsi when analyzing hockey. It tends to be the best long term predictor of future success and can offer a nice snap shot of just how effective a team has been.

Flying In A Downward Spiral:
The Jets were once again sharp early. The Winnipeg Jets outright dominated the first 10 minutes, but vanished over the next ten. The game was pretty even from there on out. All in all it was a pretty good showing apart from the penalty kill. This looks like a game that the Jets should have won, but special teams disasters will happen every now and again.
