33 games left in the 2015-16 season, and the Winnipeg Jets have some catching up to do.  The Jets are last in the Central division of the Western Conference, and sit  9 points below the Nashville Predators and 10 points below the Colorado Avalanche for the two wildcard spots.  The turn around had better happen now if there is any chance at all of making the playoffs. With any luck, the Preds and Avs will wilt away and make it easy for the Jets to catch up.  The Jets are coming off the All-Star break confident and healthy.  Nikolaj Ehlers scored his very first hat trick , while Dustin Byfuglien added two goals of his own in a 5-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes last week.  Adam Lowry and Mathieu Perreault are expected back in the lineup.  As for the Dallas Stars, they are coming off a 2-1 victory against the Calgary Flames.  Tonight's game should be good tilt between two rested teams looking make an impact.
