The Winnipeg Jets (18-8-5) face Central Division foes the Chicago Blackhawks (15-11-5) tonight in Winnipeg.
The Hawks currently sit 6th out of 7 in the Central, but are still right in the thick of things when it comes to playoff contention. They are tied with Minnesota for the last wildcard spot, but Minnesota get the edge because they have a game in hand.
The Jets are coming off of a 5-1 win over Vancouver on Monday night, while the Blackhawks have won their last three.
Corey Crawford is en fuego right now, but Connor Hellebuyck is dominant at home as well so either goalie could steal this one for their team.
Will Chicago defeat Chicago of the North?
Will it be Blackhawk Down at Bell MTS Place?
Tune in this evening! Same Jets time (7:00 PM CST), Same Jets channel (TSN 3)!
