Finally the Jets score some goals! The Jets fired home 4 goals in the first period and ended up with 8 on the night. Rick DiPietro was able to take the first of a few nights off with the team not losing any ground in tight playoff race.
Who gives up 6 goals to the Devils? Apparently Vitaly Kolesnik and Archie Irbe did. Jamal Mayers has also been placed on IR after the game, it appears Jamal will miss 6-8 weeks.
Player of the Game:
Winger Mark Recchi is the POG for tonight’s game. Recchi had a goal and 4 assists. GM Walsh made a few minor line changes and it sparked the offense.
The turning point came before the opening face-off occurred. When both teams submitted their starting line ups it was revealed that it was going to be a battle between Morrison and Kolesnik. Vitaly won the match up only because Morrison sucks.
Tomorrow vs. the Sens!
