(SportsNetwork. Randall Cobb Packers Jersey

their fragile postseason chances and they hope to get that victory on
Friday when the struggling New York Rangers visit the MTS Centre.
Tune into the game live on TSN Jets and TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg at
6:30pm ct.Paul Maurices club is in the midst of a five-game slide, and
although the Jets have managed to earn three points during the skid
theyll need to start rattling off some wins to make the playoffs.
Winnipeg is five points out of a playoff spot in the West with 15 games
left on its schedule. The Jets havent made the postseason since
relocating from Atlanta to Winnipeg prior to the 2011-12 campaign. The
former Thrashers, meanwhile, only made the playoffs once during 11
frustrating seasons in Atlanta.
The Jets fell to 0-3-2 on their current funk after Wednesdays 3-2
shootout loss against visiting Vancouver. Chris Higgins scored the game
winner in the third round of the shootout, as the Canucks halted a
seven-game road skid to down Winnipeg in the opener of a three-game
Winnipeg held leads of 1-0 and 2-1 in the game, but couldnt close out
the win in regulation. Then, after the first five shooters came up
empty, Higgins charged in down the middle and made a number of quick
dekes before stuffing a forehand past Ondrej Pavelecs outstretched right
pad for the victory.
Andrew Ladd and Michael Frolik each lit the lamp for Winnipeg, while
Pavelec posted 31 saves in the setback.
"Its a loss because of the shootout," Maurice said. "Its a 2-2 game in
terms of how it was played and I think thats a pretty accurate
assessment of how the game went."
The Jets went 7-2-0 in the first nine games under Maurice, who replaced a
fired Claude Noel in January. Winnipeg, however, is just 4-3-4 under
Maurice since the coachs early success.
Winnipeg earned a win over the Rangers on Dec. 2, notching a 5-2 road
victory at Madison Square Garden. Ex-Ranger Olli Jokinen had two goals
and an assist to lead the offense and Pavelec made 35 saves for the win.
The Jets have won three of the last four meetings versus New York, but
the Rangers have claimed two of the three encounters at the MTS Centre
since the franchise relocated.
New York has lost two straight to begin a three-game road trip and Alain
Vigneaults club is just 2-4-1 in March. With 74 points, the Rangers are
tied with Columbus for second place in the Metropolitan Division. but
they are only one ahead of Philadelphia, which currently holds the last
playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
After losing 3-1 at Carolina on Tuesday, the Blueshirts dropped a 2-1
decision Thursday night at Minnesota. Zach Parises goal 1:03 into the
third period provided the difference in the Wilds 2-1 victory at XCel
Cam Talbot turned aside 24 shots in the loss, with Derek Stepan
recording the lone New York goal.
"Were not scoring a lot of goals 5-on-5," said Vigneault. "I thought our
effort was better tonight, our execution was a little bit better, but
we need to finish more and obviously that wasnt the case tonight."
Martin St. Louis is one of the many Rangers struggling to find the net
at the moment. St. Louis has no goals and one assist in five games since
coming to New York in the blockbuster trade that sent former Rangers
captain Ryan Callahan to Tampa Bay.
St. Louis has excellent career numbers against the Atlanta/Winnipeg
franchise, posting 27 goals and 55 assists over 74 career games.
Despite dropping the first two tilts on its current trek, New York still
has a solid 19-13-0 road record this season. The Blueshirts will return
home to host San Jose on Sunday, but then will head back out on another
