The Winnipeg Jets (2-4-0; 27th place in the league) broke their losing streak with their win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night and will try to add another win to their record tonight when the Tampa Bay Lightning (4-2-1; ninth place in the league) visit them at home.

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

Players to Watch

Adam Lowry scored his first NHL goal and was named second star of the game in the Jets win over Carolina on Tuesday. I think he's been a nice, consistent presence this season so far and am curious to see if he's able to follow up his first goal with his second NHL goal in tonight's game.

On the other end of the ice, it's Steven Stamkos. It's always Steven Stamkos. Stamkos is Tampa Bay. Stamkos is everything.

Game note

While the Jets colors are primarily blue and silver, I hope to see nothing but a sea of red tonight at the arena to show support for our troops and honour the life of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo.
