The Jets streak began on December 13 with a 5-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings. That was followed by a 6-2 Jets win over the Colorado Avalanche on December 16, a 3-2 Jets overtime loss to the Montreal Canadiens on December 18, a 5-2 Jets win over the Detroit Red Wings on December 20, a 5-1 Jets win over the Boston Bruins on December 22, a 2-1 Jets overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on December 27, a 4-2 Jets win over the Minnesota Wild on December 30, a 3-2 Jets over the Wild on December 31, and a 4-2 Jets win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on January 2.

With the win over the Sharks on Thursday, the Jets improve to a record of 24 wins, nine regulation losses and four losses in extra time for 52 points. They are in second place in the Central Division and one point back of the Avalanche. The Jets next play in Anaheim on Friday.
