GDT: Jets. Oilers. Rexall.

The Jets are in Deadmonton to take on the Oilers. Did I make that joke the last time they played the Oilers? Probably. Do I care? Nope. Is it relevant? Yep.

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets have traveled to Alberta to take on the Oilers tonight at Rexall Place. I live in a city south of Edmonton. I could be there in a little over 5 hours if I drove really fast. I traveled 7 hours last preseason to watch the Jets take on the Bruins in an exhibition game in Saskatoon, but you couldn't pay me enough money to travel to Edmonton to watch an Oilers game. It's only the promise of Drew Stafford, Mark Scheifele and Tyler Myers that is making it okay for me to watch this game on TV tonight.

The game can be watched on TSN3.
