The window is closing for the Maple Leafs. It seemed like no one was catching Toronto in the standings for the North Division crown. After a stretch of bad games by Toronto, the Jets have closed the gap. The Jets are now four points behind Toronto for first in the division. The Jets also have two games in hand to potentially tie the Leafs in points. This all starts after the Jets get a huge win over Toronto by the score of 5-2.
These two teams wrapped up their mini three-game series tonight. The two clubs split the first two meetings. It was all Winnipeg in this game. The Jets have surprised a lot of people over the last few seasons. Their defense is playing extraordinarily well over the last few games. They have also gotten some great goaltending. They kept Auston Matthews off the score sheet too tonight. That is pretty hard to do this season.

They also get this win in comeback fashion. The Maple Leafs had a 2-1 lead at one point in this game and the Jets scores four straight for the win. The Jets get a huge win tonight and are well in the conversation for a playoff contender. They have great offensive production from all four lines. That is hard to find in the NHL these days. Watch out for Winnipeg come playoff time.
