Thankfully, November only has 30 days. The month wasn't very nice to the Winnipeg Jets, as they closed out the month losing to the Colorado Avalanche and going 1-2 on a 3 game road trip. After a few days rest to heal the bumps and bruises of a a grinding road schedule, the Jets now turn and face the Toronto Maple Leafs in the confines of the MTS Centre. The Leafs are coming off a win against a struggling Edmonton Oilers franchise, but more importantly, it gave their rookie goaltender a night he'll never soon forget.

Player to Watch:
Ben Chariot has returned to the lineup after a few games observing in the press box. Can he give the Jets a much needed steady presence on the blue line? Also keep an eye out for the two goaltenders in this one as Connor Hellbuyck will start for the Jets, while the Leafs counter with Garrett Sparks, both of which are starting in only their second NHL games.
The Winnipeg Jets turn the tide and win 6-2. Little, Scheifele, Burmistrov with 2, Lowry with 2.
