ANALYSIS: How can the Winnipeg Jets stop the bleeding of a discouraging homestand? – Winnipeg

There’s no doubt – the Winnipeg Jets are in one right now.

You struggle with defense and what looks – sometimes from my comfy couch – a lack of motivation and level of competition. It appears to be on display for the league as a whole, as well as paying fans who expressed their frustration at their side’s game with a chorus of boos on two separate nights.

That three-game home stand that the Jets are in was dismal to say the least, with a 3-2 win that saw the result drastically fail to show how dominant Buffalo was over the Jets. A worse carve followed, this one from the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday … to the tune of a 4-0 shellac.

While it’s difficult to say in the middle of the season that any single game is extremely important, I would suggest that Monday night’s game against the St. Louis Blues is one of those games.

Monday night’s game will no doubt shape the narrative and emotions that not only the team but the fan base will feel during the All-Star break leading to the return of action with Jonathan Toews and the Chicago Blackhawks in town on May 11 . February.

I’m not denying or neglecting to note that the Winnipeg Jets certainly need a break – between December and January they play 31 games in 62 days. It’s a long, grueling and brutal schedule and some downtime is definitely needed.

It’s also important to note that the Jets are currently second in the Central and third in the Western Conference.

This season has been anything but a nightmare; it’s been a rebirth…until now.

A win on Monday night against another stumbling team, the four-game-lost Blues, will do well to get those good feelings going.

But if the Jets play like they did last week, they’ll go into the All-Star break with the worst slide of their season.

How will that affect the Jets’ final 30 games of the season?

Let’s not find out.
