No playoffs as Jets fall Tuesday night in Flint

FLINT, MI - The Metro Jets jumped out to a 2-0 lead Tuesday night over the Flint Jr. Generals at Iceland Arena, but Flint tallied the next four to beat the Jets 4-2, effectively ending Metro's hopes of qualifying for the NA3HL playoffs.

The Jets (21-22-3-0) have 45 points and the fourth-place Toledo Cherokee (24-21-0-1) has 49 (both have played 46 games), so even if Metro wins their last two games this weekend at home against Cleveland and Toledo loses their last two games versus the Michigan Mountain Cats, Toledo gets the tiebreaker by virtue of more regular-season wins.

Alex Holm and Kyle Shreve scored for the Jets and goalie Riley Corbin made 28 saves in the loss.

Metro hosts the Jr. Lumberjacks Saturday night at 7:50 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 2:50 p.m. at Lakeland Arena.
