To say the Winnipeg Jets are struggling would be a bit of an understatement.
The Jets have lost three straight and have failed to score more than two goals in their last five games.
With a little more than a quarter of the season gone, the Jets have just 11 points and find themselves in the basement of the Eastern Conference.
Captain Andrew Ladd and defenseman Tobias Enstrom are two of the bright spots on a team that is full of underperforming players. Ladd leads the team with seven goals, while Enstrom has a team best 13 points. However, Enstrom was injured in Winnipeg’s loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins and it’s still unknown exactly how much time he will miss.
The Jets are set to embark on a five-game road trip and need a few wins if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. It’s their longest road trip of the season and four of the five games are against non-divisional opponents.
