Stalling Jets need to find a way to be better
Nashville beat Winnipeg 4-1 Thursday night and improved their record against the Jets this season to 2-1-1
Pekka Rinne looked like his old self in Nashville's 4-1 win Thursday night against the Winnipeg Jets. The struggling netminder posted a .963 save percentage on 27 shots from the Jets. Predators star centre, Ryan Johansen has played the Jets three times this season, once when he was still on the Columbus Blue Jackets where he got a goal and an assist. Now with Nashville he's added two goals and three assists. Johansen and James Neal have combined for 13 points against the Jets this season.
The Predators win sets the Jets back five points from Nashville and only one point ahead of last place Edmonton.
After the game Jets head coach Paul Maurice wasn't sugar coating anything, he said that even with the injuries the team has right now, that his club needs to be better.
