The Winnipeg Jets will bring their 2013-14 season to a close on Friday evening as they visit the Calgary Flames. Viewers in the Jets region can watch the game on TSN and listen to it on TSN 1290 starting at 7:30pm ct/8:30pm et. The Jets are hoping to conclude their schedule with a fourth victory in six games as they will miss the playoffs for a seventh straight season. The franchise has made the postseason only once since joining the NHL as the Atlanta Thrashers in 1999-2000 and this marked the clubs third season since relocating to Winnipeg. Tonight marks the back end of games on consecutive nights for the Jets, who bested the Boston Bruins 2-1 in a shootout on Thursday. Evander Kane had the game-tying goal with 1:57 to play and Bryan Little potted the lone goal of the tiebreaker. It was another solid effort by netminder Michael Hutchinson. He made 16 saves in a tough-luck 1-0 loss on Monday versus Minnesota in his NHL debut, then stopped 32 shots through overtime last night before going perfect in the shootout to win his first career game. "I felt determined and relaxed out there," said Hutchinson, a 2008 draft pick by Boston. "I just wanted to give the team a chance to win and fortunately we came out flying in the third period and we definitely took the play to them and we got rewarded with a goal." The Jets will now try to secure just their second ever victory in Calgary. They had gone 0-6-0 on the road versus the Flames dating back to their days in Atlanta before notching a 5-2 victory in Calgary on Jan. 16. That win also snapped Winnipegs four-game slide overall to the Flames. Calgary is coming off Wednesdays 4-3 shootout decision over the Los Angeles Kings, one that pushed its winning streak to four straight. The Flames are on their longest string of consecutive victories since claiming five straight from Jan. 22-Feb. 1. The Flames failed to hold a 3-0 lead versus the Kings but recovered in the shootout. Jiri Hudler answered Marian Gaboriks shootout tally for the Kings and Sean Monahan then supplied the winner in the fourth round. Karri Ramo posted 41 saves in the victory. "His progression has been unbelievable and right now hes making a name for himself as a number one (goaltender)," Calgary head coach Bob Hartley said of Ramo. Monahan also potted his 21st goal of the season, the most by a Flames rookie since Jarome Iginla had 21 in 1996-97. T.J. Galiardi had a goal and an assist, while Matt Stajan lit the lamp. Flames head coach Bob Hartley said Mike Cammalleri is a game-time decision for tonights contest. Calgary, which will end its regular season at Vancouver on Sunday, improved to 19-18-3 at home. Thats an impressive number given that the club endured a franchise-worst seven-game home losing streak at one point this season. Paul Perkins Jersey .

With the final four being arguably the four best – and most complete – teams from the regular season, picking a winner is not as easy as it sounds. Eli Manning Jersey .com) - His team lost in the round of 16 of the FCS playoffs, yet Northern Iowa football coach Mark Farley says his team has made a strong case to be voted to the top 5 in the final rankings. Brad Wing Jersey . Some teams got significantly better, some teams divested themselves of talent and some teams had quiet afternoons, keeping the status quo.SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Even against the Western Conferences worst teams, nothing is coming easy for the New York Knicks right now. Carmelo Anthony scored 36 points, J.R. Smith tied a franchise-record with nine 3-pointers and the Knicks held off a furious rally to beat the Sacramento Kings 107-99 Wednesday night and move a game closer to the final playoff seed. "We needed all of them, Ill tell you that," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said, shaking his head in relief. A night after a lacklustre 127-96 loss at the Los Angeles Lakers, the Knicks avoided a monumental collapse to another of the leagues cellar-dwellers. New York led by 24 in the third quarter before Sacramento surged back, and the Knicks needed a scintillating shooting performance from its leading men to snap a two-game skid. Smith scored 29 points on 10-for-19 shooting, including 9 for 12 from long distance. Anthony shot 12 for 21 from the floor and 5 of 8 from beyond the arc. "That was big time," Anthony said. New York (30-42) is two games behind Atlanta for the final playoff spot in the weak Eastern Conference after the Hawks (31-39) lost 107-83 to Minnesota. DeMarcus Cousins had 32 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists to carry the Kings, who played without injured point guard Isaiah Thomas (bruised right quadriceps). Ray McCallum made his first start in Thomas place alongside fellow rookie Ben McLemore, and the two shook off a slow start to bring the Kings back. McCallum had 10 points, six rebounds and five assists. McLemore scored 16. But New York outshot Sacramento 54.8 per cent to 47.8 per cent and finished 15 for 26 from 3-point range. "The 3-point line killed us," Kings coach Michael Malone said. "You have J.R. Smith and Carmelo Anthony, thats going to be tough to beat." About the only thing that kept the Kings close most of the night-- besides Cousins -- was free throws. Sacramento shot 27 for 35 on free throws, while New York finished 12 for 13. Sacramento scored the first eight points of the fourth quarter and finished with a flurry of highlights to give the Knicks a scare. Cousins three-point play overr Amare Stoudemire trimmed New Yorks lead to 96-94 with 4:30 remaining, sending most of the announced crowd of 15,494 roaring to their feet.dddddddddddd Smith answered with a 3-pointer, and Tyson Chandler came back with a dunk to put the Knicks up 101-94. After McCallum made two free throws, Anthonys 15-footer with 1:36 to play sent a cluster of fans to the exits, and the rest soon followed. "We know what they wanted to do," Cousins said, "but we have to go out there and execute." The Knicks already assured themselves of a losing season with an embarrassing loss in Los Angeles on Tuesday night with new team president Phil Jackson in attendance. The former Lakers coach, a longtime nemesis of Kings fans, was nowhere to be found in Sacramento on this night. Not that the Knicks shouldve needed Jacksons presence to get by a rebuilding Kings team that is far from the franchise he often led the Lakers past in the playoffs during Sacramentos glory years. New York took control in the second quarter with 20-6 run highlighted by defence and dunks. Chandler capped the spurt with an alley-oop from Smith that put the Knicks up 54-38. Anthony added two 3-pointers to extend New Yorks lead to 74-50 with 6:17 remaining in the third quarter, slapping his headband with his fingers as he backpedaled on defence each time. Smith squashed Sacramentos final rally by making all three of his 3-point attempts in the fourth, moving the Knicks playoffs hopes back in the right direction. "Ive been to (the playoffs) the last four or five years now, and to be home watching it on TV is not going to be any fun," Woodson said. "So Im desperately pushing these guys to try and get em in there, because then a new season starts and anything is possible." NOTES: The teams split the two-game season series, with each winning on the others home floor. ... The last time the Kings started rookies in the backcourt was when Isaiah Thomas and Jimmer Fredette started in a loss to Houston on April 8, 2012. ... New Yorks five-game road trip resumes Friday at Phoenix. ... Sacramento begins a three-game trip at Oklahoma City on Friday.
