The Winnipeg Jets hope to make the most of their final game

The Winnipeg Jets hope to make the most of their final game in an eight-game homestand when they host the Buffalo Sabres tonight at MTS Centre. babyliss perfect curl . The game can be seen live for viewers in the Jets region on TSN Jets at 8pm et/7pm ct. The game can also be heard live on TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg and at Winnipeg matched a club record for most goals in a period by scoring five times in the third frame on the way to a 7-0 rout of Florida on Thursday. The win pulled the Jets to within two points of the Panthers for the top spot in the Southeast Division, but that deficit was increased back to four with Floridas win on Sunday. Winnipeg is also just a point ahead of ninth place Washington, while Tampa Bay joins Buffalo two points off the pace for the eighth seed. Evander Kane tallied a career-best four points in Thursdays win, scoring a pair of goals while logging two assists. The forward has seven goals and seven helpers over an eight-game point streak, while Ondrej Pavelec made 33 saves to record his season high-tying fourth shutout of the season. It was also the 10th of his career. Blake Wheeler and Kyle Wellwood added a goal and helper each for the Jets, who put the brakes on a two-game slide and improved to 4-1-2 on their homestand. "We still have to focus on the task. Were happy, the players get in an offensive night, we dont get too many like this," Wheeler said. "We wanted to focus on playing a playoff-style game." Bryan Little, Jim Slater and Nik Antropov also scored for the Jets, who will once again be without Zach Bogosian due to an upper-body injury. The defenseman was just returning to the lineup after missing seven in a row because of a wrist ailment. The Jets are 2-0-1 versus the Sabres this year, splitting a pair of overtime decisions in Buffalo prior to a 4-1 home win on Jan. 19. Pavelec made 25 saves in that win, while Andrew Ladd and Antropov had a goal and an assist each. The Sabres have lost eight of their past 10 on the road in this series with the Jets, who were formally located in Atlanta. The Sabres extended their longest point streak of the season over the weekend with a victory against the top team in the Western Conference. Another win for Buffalo this evening will have them back in the postseason picture for the first time since December. The Sabres close out a five-game road trip against the Winnipeg Jets, who are trying to hold on to the eighth seed in the East in the finale of their longest homestand of the season. Buffalo put its point streak on the line Saturday against the Vancouver Canucks and knocked off the Wests top seed by a 5-3 margin. Ville Leino scored twice in the first 3:44 of the game and Brad Boyes added a goal 5:10 into the opening frame to stake the Sabres to a quick lead. Coming off consecutive shutout wins, Ryan Miller made 32 saves and had his scoreless streak end at 155 minutes and 37 seconds after finally getting bested in the second period. Still, Buffalo improved to 6-0-2 over its past eight games, good enough for the clubs longest point streak since an 8-0-3 run from Dec. 26-Jan. 18 of the 2009-10 campaign. "We knew we had a challenge tonight with the Canucks, theyve been a powerhouse all year, and I thought we did a great job of jumping out to a big lead and battling pretty hard in that first period," said Miller, who is 6-0-1 in his past seven games with a 1.40 goals-against average and .958 save percentage. "It was nice to see our guys get rewarded for making some plays and putting pucks through to the net." Tyler Ennis added a goal to give him eight points in his past nine games as well as a goal and four assists over a career-high five-game point streak. The victory pulled the Sabres to within two points of the Jets for the eighth seed in the East, a nice turn of events for the club given that they were 10 points out of a playoff spot on Feb. 18. Buffalo hasnt been a part of the playoff picture since it was tied for the seventh spot back on Dec. 19. babyliss curl secret . The morning wave of players took advantage of favourable scoring conditions with seven players managing rounds of 5 under on the 6,800-yard layout at Bearspaw Country Club. Chiles Hugo Leon joined Fritsch and Yip at the top of the leaderboard along with Americans Alex Coe, Liam Kendregan, Chan Kim and Chris Cunningham after the morning session. babyliss uk . -- It seemed as if Denny Hamlin was out for a Sunday afternoon drive at Kansas Speedway, hanging around the leaders most of the day but never really giving anybody too much reason to worry. The Ottawa Senators had trouble scoring in 2013, but with D Erik Karlsson and C Jason Spezza healthy, there is a good chance that they will be able to score more often in 2013-2014. Top Picks: While some players coming an injury-marred season might have shaky value, that wont be the case for D Erik Karlsson, who only played 17 games because of an Achilles injury, but hes such a ridiculous offensive performer that he has an argument for being a first-round pick because he has 92 points in 98 games over the past two seasons. His 0.94 is best among defenceman; Pittsburghs Kris Letang (0.93) is the only other defenceman over 0.75 points per game in the last two years. Karlsson also registered 4.65 shots on goal per game last season. Its obviously a small sample, but the only defencemen to ever average more in a season (min. 10 GP) are Bobby Orr and Raymond Bourque. On the heels of losing Daniel Alfredsson as a free agent, the Senators made a deal for RW Bobby Ryan, a net upgrade in talent. Last season, Ryan had 11 goals in 46 games (a career-low 0.24 gpg), yet he ranks 14th with 142 goals since 2008-2009, tied for sixth with 106 goals at even strength. In Anaheim, Ryan didnt always get first unit power play time, something that should change in Ottawa, where his goal-scoring will be welcome, making Ryan a low-end No. 1 and high level No. 2 right winger. Understand, coming into the season, that G Craig Anderson is going to see his numbers regress -- he will not have a .941 save percentage over a full season, for example -- but his .919 save percentage since 2007-2008 ranks seventh and hes the starter for what appears to be a strong team so, even with regression, hes a decent No. 1 fantasy goaltender. Value Plays: Since 2005-2006, C Jason Spezza has scored 545 points in 500 games, his 1.09 points per game ranking fifth (minimum 200 games played) in that span. Trouble is, Spezza has missed at least 20 games in three of the last four seasons, including last year when back woes cost him 43 of 48 games. Obviously, Spezza is quite valuable when hes in the lineup, but it becomes a risk-reward pick for fantasy owners when you go into the season expecting a player to miss a significant amount of time. As much as C Kyle Turris has improved and seen his role increase in Ottawa, scoring 58 points in 97 games, he has yet to score even 30 points in an NHL season. babyliss pro uk. As a late-round pick, playing on the potential of a 23-year-old, sure, hes worth a look, but keep expectations in check. LW Clarke MacArthur had back-to-back 20-goal seasons in Toronto before his role was reduced in 2013. If he lands a top-six role with the Senators, another 20-goal season could be within reach. Sleepers/Breakthrough: Its not secret that LW Milan Michalek can score, and a spot on Jason Spezzas wing is a nice place to work but, like Spezza, Michalek comes with an injury risk, having missed at least 15 games in three of the last four seasons. Hes a five-time 20-goal scorer, topping out at 35 in 2011-2012, but any pick of Michalek has to be done with expectations that hell miss some time. It took some time for C/LW Mika Zibanejad to adjust to North America, managing a modest 11 points in 23 AHL games before adding 20 points in 42 NHL games. Hes already established that hes an NHLer, but Zibanejad may not play in enough of an offensive role to generate fantasy interest so soon. Now that Sergei Gonchar is toiling in Dallas, D Patrick Wiercioch is looking at a favourable opportunity to handle more minutes in his second NHL season. G Robin Lehner has given every indication that hes going to be a very good starting goaltender in the league, posting a .936 save percentage in 17 NHL games over the last two seasons. He doesnt have great value as long as he sits behind Anderson on the depth chart but, as backups go, Lehner is one of the best so long as he continues his career on this path. Rookies: The Senators might have a few rookies challenging for spots in the lineup, but they dont initially appear to be relevant for fantasy purposes. C Jean-Gabriel Pageau had 10 points in 19 (regular season plus playoff) games for Ottawa last season, but after 29 points in 69 AHL games, he cant be expected to take a scoring role. RW Mark Stone is another candidate for a spot on a scoring line, after scoring 38 points in 54 AHL games as a rookie pro last season. If Stone lands a regular spot, then he might have value but, right now, its too soon to make that projection.
