The Winnipeg Jets (19-10-5) will hope to play the role of Chris Hansen in the Central Division standings on the upcoming road trip as they look to Catch the (Nashville) Predators (21-7-4).
Despite splitting a pair of games with St. Louis over the weekend, the Jets dominated the Blues in shots in both games, with 158 shot attempts to St. Louis’ 102 (or 94 to 54 in actual shots). The win was the Jets’ second in their last six games, after a slip in form from their early season-dominance.
Nashville will be the first stop of three road games before the holiday break, with stops in Boston and wherever the Islanders play these days. Is ti still that garbage arena in Brooklyn?
This will be the second of five meetings between the two teams this season, with the Preds picking up a 5-3 while hosting the first game on November 20.
Will Nashville smash the Jets?
Will Winnipeg rise closer to the Central Division leaders?
Tune in this evening! Same Jets time (7:00 PM CST), Same Jets channel (TSN 3)!
