The Winnipeg Jets can't seem to catch a break. A 7-0 drubbing at the hands of the Nashville Predators on Saturday night made the internet quiver in fear over the forthcoming onslaught of game and player critiques. The players are frustrated. The coaching staff are frustrated. The fans are frustrated. And speaking of insanity, even Tony Soprano is frustrated...
Here's hoping they can turn it around and end their current 4 game road trip on a positive note against another central division opponent in the St. Louis Blues. The Blues are coming off a 4-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night. I expect this to be a rough and tumble contest, as both the Jets and Blues are pissed! Dirty Harry Callahan is pissed too, but I'm not sure if it's about the Jets, or that he's being disturbed from eating his Jumbo Jet dog...
