While the Jets’ stellar homestand gave a boost to their playoff chances, Winnipeg must work hard in their final three games to get a postseason berth.
And, for the second year running, the Sabres are going to be watching the playoffs instead of taking part.
The Jets trail the NY Rangers by just the one point for the Eastern Conference’s final playoff position – and Washington by 3 points for the lead in the Southeast Division. The (Atlanta) Jets last qualified for the postseason just once back in 2006-07. They of course must play at Washington on Tuesday.
