"Saturday night's alright for fightin'!" - Elton John, not Nickelback!

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Winnipeg Jets welcome the Philadelphia Flyers to the MTS Center for a Saturday night showdown! The Jets gained 5 of a possible 8 points during a grueling road trip which found them playing 4 games (2-1-1), all of which were played as two back to backs.  Phew!  On the other hand, the Flyers are winless in their last 6 games (0-4-2).  Pee yew!  Will the Flyers tire out the Jets?  Or will the Jets shower the former Broad Street Bullies with goals?  Tune in and find out.

Player(s) to watch:

Paul Postma and Patrice Cormier will be making their season debuts tonight.  Postma will be playing with Mark Stuart in place of a scratched Ben Chariot, while Cormier will be playing with Anthony Peluos and Chris Thorburn on the fourth line. Nic Petan has the flu, while Andrew Copp is still nursing his injury.  It will be interesting how the two newly inserted players pan out for the first time this season.
