GDT: Winnipeg Jets at Chicago Blackhawks

New, comments

The Jets take on the Blackhawks tonight before heading home to Winnipeg. Can Ondrej Pavelec keep playing like a star? Why is Chris Thorburn a thing? Will Mark Scheifele just score a goal already? How fluffy will Patrick Kane's mullet be?

The Winnipeg Jets (5-5-1) are in Chicago to take on the Blackhawks (6-4-1) in their last road game before they head towards home and a day off. A win tonight would mean that the Jets managed to get 7 points out of a possible 8 on the road which ain't too shabby, but keep in mind that these are the Blackhawks we're talking about here and they aren't exactly slackers themselves.

Player to Watch

Evander Kane is the one to watch for me tonight. Having scored the game winning shoot out goal last night, I'm curious to see what he can accomplish tonight against tough competition. As one of the most hyped players on the team, and the most controversial by far, I am curious to see what Kane truly looks like this season as he finally is able to get rolling.

Mark Scheifele snakebite count: 6 games and holding. Pray for Fefe.
