Close series, two evenly matched teams, i picked Calgary because the Jets defense has been smoke and mirrors all year and i feel the quick Flames forwards will wear them down and keep the 5 on 5 play in the Jets zone most of the time. Kind of neat series the battle of Atlanta if you will......
Inject this series into my veins.
I think this will be hard hitting, high skill level all the things we like about hockey.
I agree with @yave1964 about the D corps for the Jets.
I think the heavy forwards for the Peg wears down the Calgary D
As bad as the Wild/Canucks series is -this one will be that level but awesome.
Jets in 5
I cab see the Flames trying to force the play up ice with their small fast forwards and puck moving blueliners and the Jets countering with rugged forwards trying to move the puck the other way but being a step short. The difference may be Hellboy versus Rittich in net, but i think i will still stick with Calgary because they role three lines that can all score and the Jets defense simpy will come up short.
Talk about a gut check game from the Jets, down two impossible to replace players, Harkins and Lowry scored huge goals and Ehlers stepped up with the GWG after the Flames clawed their way back into the game and Hellboy was fnatastic. Gotta give the Jets credit for finding something within themselves to overcome adversity in game 2.
