WINNIPEG - So are the Winnipeg Jets for real this time?

That was the question I took into the Jets dressing room, Friday, a room more upbeat than it's been in weeks.

This has been a happy place before, most recently when the Jets started the season 3-1-1.

It didn’t last.

Going back to last year, December produced a sparkling home stand which also gave the impression the Jets may have turned a corner.

That didn’t last, either.

So how about this time? Three streaks and they’ll be out again?

Or is this roll, five wins in their last six, legit?
