Log out of Facebook How to remove this experience Watch Winnipeg Jets’ razor-thin no-goal vs. Capitals (Video) Tweet 10 The Winnipeg Jets were battling the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night with the Southeast Division title on the line. Already down 1-0, the Jets thought they may knotted the game with just under seven minutes left in the first period. Did they? Or did the puck fail to completely cross the goal line after deflecting off of Brayden Holtby? The ruling was no-goal on the ice, and confirmed by the NHL War Room. This photo shows just how razor-thin the margin was for the puck before it was swept out of harm’s way by John Erskine (who earlier saved another goal with a sliding stop in the crease). Boy, we could have really used that verification line for this one. Whatever happened with that idea? But the real issue with this no-goal: Blake Wheeler. Arms up, twirling for the celebration instead of slam-dunking it home — d’oh. He would later get one in the second period. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/watch-winnipeg-jets-razor-thin-no-goal-vs-003909277–nhl.html

NHL Playoff Picture: Caps can take Southeast in showdown with Jets

Two points Tuesday night would put the Jets ahead of Ottawa, but the Sens would have two games in hand. So you can see the most likely path for the Jets is Southeast or bust. Even if the Jets “do” on Tuesday they will still need some help. The Capitals control their own destiny regardless of the outcome. They have played one fewer game than Winnipeg thus far. However, should the Jets win in regulation and take a one-point lead in the standings, Washington isn’t left with a cake walk. That destiny might not be easy to realize. The Caps’ final two games are against playoff teams — at the moment, at least — in Ottawa and Boston. The good news for the Caps is they are both home games, but that’s stiff competition to finish against. So as you can see, Tuesday’s game is pretty important in the playoff picture. Not only could it decide the division for good, but a Winnipeg regulation loss would likely, although not officially, establish the eight teams that will be in the playoffs in the East. If Winnipeg can win then the races will remain for the final fun few days. source: http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/blog/eye-on-hockey/22122281/nhl-playoff-picture-caps-can-take-southeast-in-showdown-with-jets

Jets eliminated from playoffs, then drop last game 4-2 to Montreal Canadiens

But the win guarantees the Canadiens at least fourth in the East and home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs. “It’s a big win against a desperate team,” Montreal captain Brian Gionta said. “It’s huge. Home ice is really big in the playoffs. … You keep forcing plays, you keep being relentless on the puck, eventually they’re going to turn it over and they’re going to get tired and we took advantage in the third.” Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban, who had two assists Thursday night, agreed with his captain. “You want to use that fan base to your advantage. Now that we’ve got home-ice advantage we want to use that.” The game started well for the Jets. Chris Thorburn and Wright teamed up in the first to put the Jets ahead 1-0. Wright’s wrist shot from the slot found the upper corner of the Montreal net. But the Canadiens still managed to spend a lot of time in Winnipeg’s zone. source: http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2013/04/26/jets-eliminated-from-playoffs-then-drop-last-game-4-2-to-montreal-canadiens/

Lapeer native Jim Slater endures frustrating, injury-shortened NHL season

“It’s more of a mental challenge, making sure that you’re ready for every shift going out there,” he said. “If you give them just an extra little bit of room, they’re going to make you pay for it. You have to be on top of your game. You have to take their space and time away and not giving them a lot of room. You have to try and get underneath their skin, frustrate them and that’s basically what it is.” Noel was happy Slater, a first-round draft choice in 2002, remained with the Jets. “Jim is just a steady guy,” he said. “What you saw early with him is what you saw later. You can pretty much put in the bank what you’re going to get from Jim Slater. He’s a no-maintenance guy. He shows up to work, shows up to play, gives you what he has. source: http://www.mlive.com/sports/flint/index.ssf/2013/05/lapeer_native_jim_slater_endur.html
