Zero points. That's what the Winnipeg Jets gained on their 4 game road trip thru the U.S.. It wasn't pretty. In fact, at times, it was down right ugly! But what probably felt like the road trip from hell, is over as the team crash landed back in River City.

The team had Tuesday off and are back on the ice tonight against the Vancouver Canucks, who are coming off a 4-3 blown lead OT loss on Monday in Montreal. Time for the Jets to gain some altitude, attitude and redemption.

Player to watch:

The rookies, as Vancouver played 5 rookies against the Canadiens (4 in the line up against the Jets, as Hunter Shinkaruk is a scratch.).  In comparison, the Jets have been playing 3 the majority of the time so far this season (although Petan is a scratch for this game.  Bummer!).  Also watch for the Jet's line combinations to hit the blender a few times thru the game.

Prediction:

The Jets get back to their winning ways with a 5-2 victory, in front of a very supportive home crowd.
