The Winnipeg Jets return home to take on a Calgary Flames team that has been sitting waiting for their return. The Jets have been rolling of late - winning 6 of their last 8 games - but they are looking to rebound after a tough one goal loss to the Minnesota Wild last night.
The Flames are trending in the opposite direction, suffering 6 straight losses. The Flames haven't really been competitive of late. They have allowed four or more goals in four of these six losses and only topped two goals for once. Oof. The Flames are allowing an average of 3.70 goals against per game this season that is the second highest mark in the league. They are out-scoring the Jets this season though, so this may be a high scoring affair.
Regardless of the records coming in, any team can win on any given night. The Jets need to be sharp and they NEED to win. Their division is extremely difficult and the Jets can't afford to giveaway too many of these supposed "gimmie" games.
