Tonight the Jets (6-5-1) are back in Winnipeg to take on the Nashville Predators (7-2-2). After a rather successful road trip, the Jets should be looking to prove that they are not just road trip warriors and can win at home as well.

The game is being broadcast on Sportsnet West (MTS 171/1171, Shaw 47/223).

Players to Watch

Ondrej Pavelec should be in tonight as per the Jets website, and it'll be interesting to see if he can keep up the performances he's been putting on as of late. I hope against hope that he can keep playing well and continue the upwards momentum he's shown in the past few games. Credit given when it's due, he saved the Jets' collective behinds a couple times on that road trip and it'll also be interesting to see if he has to keep doing so for the time present.

On the other end of the ice, Calle Jarnkrok is one of the most exciting young.... oh. He's injured.

Well, there's always Mr. Underwood himself... who is also injured.

There's always Rich Clune though who had that crazy fight last season with Adam Pardy and taunted the... they sent him back to the AHL didn't they?

Dammit, Perds. I don't know, watch Shea Weber or something.
