The Jets (7-5-2) had a superb game against the Penguins that ended with a loss. Which was sad. Their effort as of late has been commendable and if they continue this new trend of playing relatively well and being engaged in the game, I foresee many more wins in their future.
Tonight, they'll try to get back into the win column against the Ottawa Senators (7-3-2). Whose goalie is number one in the league as far as sv% goes and has a strong defence in front of him. Gulp.

Player to Watch
Jacob Trouba has been found and is starting to come out of whatever slump/frustration/coma/what have you he has been trying to play through since the season began. He scored his second goal of the season (and his first in 4 ames) against the Penguins and is starting to look more like the Trouba we all know. Hopefully whatever that monkey hanging on his back was (a large one named Mark Stuart, perhaps?) is long gone and the kid can start to shine again and play in top form.
Craig Anderson is beautiful and will likely be beautiful tonight in net as well. You'll have no choice but to watch him tonight. Sorry.
