Preview: Winnipeg Jets vs. Chicago Blackhawks

New, comments

It’ll be a ol’ fashioned Central Division slobber knocker in the ‘Peg tonight!

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets are coming off a disappointing loss against the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night, and they hope to redeem themselves against another Central Division power house in the Chicago Blackhawks. The Blackhawks, on the other hand, are coming off a 4 game winning streak, as they beat the Anaheim Ducks in OT on Monday.
