When the going gets tough, the tough get going. The Winnipeg Jets are coming off a difficult 4-1 loss against the San Jose Sharks. Bad penalties and questionable calls were the low lights of that game, while Nikolaj Ehlers lone goal sparked some enthusiasm. Blake Wheeler called out his team yesterday, which was seconded by Brian Little. More emotional intelligence and investment needed! The Nashville Predators are also in tough, as they are coming off a 3-2 loss against the Chicago Blackhawks, and are hanging on to their playoff wildcard spot by a few points. A trade for Ryan Johansen last week should bring some much needed offense and security.
