GDT: Winnipeg Jets vs Carolina Hurricanes

New, comments

Win, and the Jets' playoff glimmer of hope stays alive. Lose, and the Jets' odds to winning the draft lottery become greater. Philosophically, is this now considered a Win/ Win scenario? Lots of questions remain, including "who's driving the tank?".

Has everyone bought in, and can the "Tank" be stopped? Or is it onwards with the "Matthews March"?

The Jets lost their All-Star break return engagement to the Dallas Stars 5-3 on Tuesday evening. Tonight's opponents, the Carolina Hurricanes, are in the middle of a 3 game swing thru Canada, as they lost the first contest against the Calgary Flames 4-1 on Wednesday.
