The Jets will need a lot of help from the out-of-town scoreboard if their slim playoff hopes are to come true, but none of that will matter if they can't put two more points on the board in their final game of the regular season.
The Winnipeg Jets sit only one point behind three teams for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with two games to play. Tonight they are in Washington as they continue their march toward the postseason.
Despite being undermanned and up against a team with nothing to lose, the Winnipeg Jets put in a solid effort and were rewarded with the tight victory over the Sabres. The win keeps their slim playoff alive.
