This continues to be the season that keeps on giving. On Saturday night, the Winnipeg Jets forever became the answer to this trivia question..."Name the team Jaomir Jagr scored against to tie the record for 3rd most goals by an NHL player, only to break the record for sole owner of 3rd place by scoring another goal later in the same game?". As we move forward, we have 3 games totaling 180 minutes of hockey left prior to the trade deadline, and the twitterverse and the interwebs are abuzz with rumors. Andrew Ladd? Yep, still a Jet, for this game anyways. Tonight the Winnipeg Jets meet up with the Dallas Stars, who are coming off a 7-3 loss against the Boston Bruins Saturday night. This also begins a home at home series, as the Jets play the Stars in Dallas on Thursday.
