GDT: Winnipeg Jets vs Pittsburgh Penguins

I sure hope Santa had some wins in that big bag of his, 'cause the Jets need them.  Coming off losses against the Flames and the Oilers, the Jets soaked up the Christmas cheer with a few days off.  A practice accident on Boxing Day resulted in a rung bell and stitches for Mark Scheifele, so the Jets recalled Adam Lowry and hit the line blender. The Jets will need to entrust Scheifele's fire power  and responsibility for tonight's game and the foreseeable future to someone else.  The Pittsburgh Penguins however, are coming off a travel day from hell win against the Minnesota Wild.
