Just in time. The Jets are back on the rebound after a four game losing streak, and to make matters even better, players are starting to return from injury. The returns of Bryan Little, Drew Stafford, Matthieu Perreault, and even Toby Enstrom from his personal leave of absence. The Jets’ rebound couldn’t have kicked in at a better time.

Milan Lucic - Connor McDavid - Leon Draisaitl

Benoit Pouliot - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jordan Eberle

Who Do We Hate Tonight?:

Not going to say the obvious with McDavid. After posting a shut out in the Heritage Classic in October Cam Talbot is ripe for the hating in tonight’s game.

Predictions:

Jets get revenge on the Oilers 2-1.
