A burning question from our own Anthony Travalgia:
Are the Jets really the best team in New York right now?

Stat of the day
71 – Prior to last night’s loss to the Avs, the Bruins compiled a streak of 71 straight games without being shutout. The last time they scored a grand total of zero goals in a game before Thursday’s 2-0 loss was back on Feb. 28, 2012 against the Ottawa Senators – a 1-0 loss. Not too shabby if you ask me.
