Apologies, if you've heard this before.

The Winnipeg Jets are coming off a big win but are concerned about keeping the same level of performance going for the next game.

With good reason.

A lack of consistency from game to game has haunted the Jets all season, and, realistically, for the better part of three seasons. It's the primary reason the Jets are not now, and never have been, a playoff team.

So that might explain why assistant captain Olli Jokinen was in no mood to celebrate after Friday's 5-0 win over the Nashville Predators. The San Jose Sharks and their 10-2-4 record are in town Sunday night and it will take another solid performance and another win to make Jokinen even think about smiling.
