If the Winnipeg Jets fall short of the Stanley Cup playoffs, they may just point to Islanders defenceman Lubomir Visnovksy's grand larceny as the reason for their early golf reservations.
If the Winnipeg Jets fall short of the Stanley Cup playoffs, they may just point to New York Islanders defenceman Lubomir Visnovksy's grand larceny as the reason for their early golf reservations.

With the Jets and Islanders battling in one of the best overtimes of the year on Saturday, Winnipeg defenceman Grant Clitsome fired a shot that rang off the post. The puck caromed right to Kyle Wellwood, who thought he had an open net as Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov was completely out of position.

It just as Wellwood was ready to pounce on the winner, Visnovsky slid across the crease to make the crucial save. The Islanders went on to win 5-4 in the shootout.

Winnipeg remains in ninth place in the East, one point shy of the New York Rangers.

That one point may be the difference between a playoff spot or more quality time with the families.
