Please Come Home

Tonight the Jets will play the last game of their lengthy seven game road trip.  Though as tiring as it may be, the Jet have done fairly well.  So far they've won fifty percent of those game, and the ones they've lost have been very close; a 1-0 loss in Tampa, 3-2 OT loss in New Jersey, and the game at Madison Square Garden was still a hard-fought battle despite the 3-0 score.  You also have to factor in how many of the players are out with injuries.

One of the players that have been sitting on the sidelines for the past two games now is their leading scorer, Nik Antropov.  Also without their two most consistent defencemen, Tobias Enstrom and Mark Stuart, then add Randy Jones to that list.  So needless to say, you have to give the remaining Jets a lot of credit (not to mention the stellar play by goaltender, Ondrej Pavelec) for the way they've been playing.  This road trip has helped the character come out in a lot of guys on the team, which is what I think was lacking in those first couple games of the season.

Tonight the Jets will wrap up the road trip in Buffalo before coming home to face the Florida Panthers for the second time this season on Thursday night.
