And so ends one of the most tumultuous months in the Winnipeg Jets' three seasons back in the NHL.

A disastrous 0-5 start to 2014 brought the end of the Claude Noel era and since Paul Maurice was quickly ushered in, the Jets have responded by going 7-2 and breathing some life into their slim playoff hopes, pulling within six points of the Vancouver Canucks for the final spot in the Western Conference with 26 games to go.

What will the Jets do an encore and where will this road lead?

To an improbable playoff berth or another middle of the road draft pick in the first round after a run that falls just short?

That's a big question left to be answered.

There's no denying the Jets have found their mojo under Maurice and the idea that the Jets might just find a way to keep this up doesn't seem as far-fetched as it once did.
