(If) This Is It... Kings v Jets

New, comments

You've been tanking, and I've been dranking, we both know that it's just not right...

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

I've got good news, bad news, and Huey Lewis and the News:

The good news. The season is over. We have the playoffs, and then it's the draft. It's apparent everyone needs a break for the summer. The fans, the players, and Kevin Cheveldayoff. I'm just excited about all the draft talk personally.

The bad news? Life without Jets hockey is pretty boring. The in-fighting isn't as enjoyable when there's no games to go along with it.

Now, Huey Lewis and the News:

Onto the game...

The Winnipeg Jets come into this game on a three game winning streak, their longest streak of the year. Also on streaks are Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele. Scheifele only needs one goal to tie the Jets 2.0 high of 30 goals in one season. Set by Evander Kane during the first year.

The Kings, can clinch their second Pacific Division title with a win tonight, and also give the team their second most points in a single season with 103.

You can catch tonight's game at 9:00 on Sportsnet.
