It's time to get something off of my chest... I still miss Evander Kane. Actually, a lot of Jets fans still do. However, it's time to move on from the childish name calling and insults some still need to resort to, to cope. Instead of acting like a lover who was scorned, wish him well, and focus on what we have now...Sorry that needed to be said. Onto the preview...
After falling to the division rival Dallas Stars in a shootout, our Winnipeg Jets return home to face the Buffalo Sabres in the first of a massive homestand that takes place throughout the month of January (The Jets' home record this season is 11-5-1). Our friends from Buffalo, one of which I mentioned earlier, return today for the first time since the trade last February. The game has a 2:00 Central Time start and you can watch it on TSN3.

Evander Kane scores a hat trick and track suits rain the ice. Jets win 5-3.
