Winnipeg Jets Poised to Make Franchise History in Record-Breaking Season

Winnipeg Jets, franchise standard

In a season marked by resilience and determination, the Winnipeg Jets are on the verge of rewriting the franchise’s history books as they approach the final stretch of the 2023-24 campaign.

After a commanding performance on the road last week, the Jets have positioned themselves as serious contenders, defying expectations and setting their sights on unprecedented achievements.

Despite a setback in Denver with a 7-0 loss, the Jets’ earlier triumph in Dallas, where they secured a 3-0 victory against formidable odds, underscored their unwavering resolve and ability to deliver under pressure.

With just two home games remaining in the regular season, the Jets find themselves on the cusp of clinching home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs, following a stumble by rivals Colorado.

Furthermore, the Jets are poised to establish a new franchise benchmark for the fewest goals conceded in an 82-game season, showcasing their formidable defensive prowess throughout the campaign. Goalkeeper Connor Hellebuyck’s exceptional form puts him in contention for the coveted Jennings Trophy, awarded to the goalkeeper(s) with the lowest goals-against average.

While there may be some disappointment that Laurent Brossoit fell short of the required games to share in the accolades, the collective achievements of the team speak volumes about their unity and determination.

Looking ahead, the Jets have their sights set on matching the franchise-high 52 victories set during the 2017-18 season, a feat that seemed improbable during a recent six-game slide.

As the Jets gear up for the final push of the regular season, they stand on the brink of etching their names in franchise history, embodying the spirit of perseverance and excellence that defines their 2.0 era.
