GDT: Winnipeg Jets vs Chicago Blackhawks

New, comments

In the last home game before a three game road trip, and the Jets need a win.

NHL: Chicago Blackhawks at Winnipeg Jets Terrence Lee-USA TODAY Sports

TV: TSN3

Radio: TSN 1290

Game Time: 7:00 P.M.

Introduction:

Winnipeg born Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews once again returns home leading his Blackhawks against the Winnipeg Jets. The Blackhawks are coming off of an embarrassing loss at home to the Vegas Golden Knights, and are integrating new players Dylan Strome and Brendan Perlini into the line up. I would expect them to play hard against a Central division rival. The Jets are coming off of a disappointing loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in a game where Connor Hellebuyck let in two soft goals. The Jets need a win before heading out on the road for a trio of games in the New York and the home of fictional character Tony Soprano, New Jersey. Expect more than a few Toews jerseys, and a good old Central division battle.
