The Jets will take to the ice as they look to get back in the win column against the Calgary Flames.

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

The Winnipeg Jets (1-3-0...yikes) return to the ice tonight, having lost three games in a row, as they'll take on the Calgary Flames in Winnipeg.  The Jets will be looking to get back in the win column after dropping three in straight to Western Conference foes following their season-opening win in Arizona.

The game is being broadcast on TSN3 (MTS channel 22, Shaw 238).

Player to Watch

For me, it's Mathieu Perreault.  After a disappointing start to the season, the Jets' top only major free agent acquisition finds himself in the Jets' top six forward group tonight, playing on the left wing with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler.  How will Perreault fare in a top six role?  Can he gel offensively with new linemates Mark Scheifele and Wheeler?  Will Paul Maurice and the Jets take advantage of his face-off prowess (almost always 50%+), or continue to trot out the sub-par Mark Scheifele for 15-20 face-offs per game?

Separately, I'll be hoping that the bottom half of the lineup isn't a complete disaster, though without a focus on one particular individual.
