To be fair, the Jets actually played fairly well and the game had tons of back and forth action. Overall, it was just a fun game to watch between two fast and skilled teams. There’s always something to learn from a hockey game, so let’s take a look at some of the takeaways from yesterday’s game. 1) Jets have plenty of speed It’s weird, the Jets played a really fast team in the Avalanche earlier this week and they looked really slow. This time around, the Jets were playing another fast team in Tampa Bay and they were able to fight toe to toe with them throughout the game. The Lightning did an excellent job of completing their stretch passes and not allowing the Jets time to set up, but the Jets did a really good job of breaking up plays in the defensive end and turning the other way.

Not that I’m trying to hijack Roberto Luongo’s shtick or anything, but some NHL contracts just stink. Andrew Ladd’s demotion to the AHL earlier this week brought back some old talking points. Remember that 2016 unrestricted free agent class?

Don’t look now, but your Winnipeg Jets are 6-1-1 for the month of November and are two for two on this road trip as they complete a sweep through Florida with a very strong 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning thanks to a big 31 save game from Connor Hellebuyck.

To be frank, the Jets were probably the better team for most of it as they got off to a quick start 1:59 into the game thanks to a Mathieu Perreault tip-in goal off of a Josh Morrissey shot.
