- Forget about Game 2’s overtime loss; it’s over and done with and the result can’t be changed. You got the split that you wanted/needed. Now protect home ice advantage, use the energy from your great fans and take it to the Predators right off the opening faceoff. Game 2 is behind us…fogettaboutit!!!!
- Blake Wheeler, Kyle Conner, Patrik Laine and Nic Ehlers have got to start scoring…the Jets high powered offence is predicated on having a lot of snipers, yet for these playoffs it’s just been Mark Scheifele and Brandon Tanev who have been doing all the scoring. If our other snipers could get hot, the Predators wouldn’t stand any chance of beating us.
- Getting more physical. Analysts and Jets fans have commented all season how the Jets can play any kind of game…and one of their greatest strengths has been hitting and forechecking. When Lowry, Tanev and Copp are hammering the other team and creating turnovers, the rest of the team feeds off that energy. We need all of our big boys to be hitting more…Trouba, Buff, Lowry, Copp, Tanev, Chairot all need to be hitting and throwing the Preds off their game. Don’t let PK, throw you off your game…he can give it, but turtles when somebody tries to give it back to him.Those are three keys to the game…my lineup, if all are healthy, would be:
Scheif, Wheeler and Conner
Stastny, Laine and Ehlers
Little, Roslovic and Perrault
Lowry, Copp and Tanev
Morrissey and Trouba
Morrow and Buff
Myers and Chairot
