The Winnipeg Jets return from a four day break to take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in a heated battle of my local team against my favorite team. Since John Tortarella has taken over the helm in Columbus the Blue Jackets have improved their record to 11-16-2. The Jets at 13-13-2 are at a crucial part of the season where they need to decide if they want to make the playoffs or if they want to "just lose for" (Auston) Matthews.
The battle of Planes and Cannons begins tonight at 7 PM Central time on TSN 3.
