The Winnipeg Jets look to avenge two recent losses to their conference rival the Minnesota Wild

NHL: Minnesota Wild at Winnipeg Jets Terrence Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets have not beaten their geographical arch rival this season, dropping two games to the Wild so far. In both the games the Wild played a playoff style fast, physical game which the Jets did not match in intensity level. The Jets won the regular season series 3 – 1 last season against the Wild, and knocked them out of the playoffs in the first round. Tonight will be an excellent opportunity for the Jets to get back on track.

Random Prediction:

Ben Chiarot with two thirds of a Gordie Howe hat trick – an assist and a fight.
