The Winnipeg Jets start the stretch drive to the playoffs against the Philadelphia Flyers 

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Winnipeg Jets Terrence Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Introduction:

We’re finally back to real hockey games following the all star break! The Jets will face a team that is limping along to perhaps the first pick overall in this summer’s draft in the Philadelphia Flyers. The first game after a layoff can go either way for most teams, so the Jets need to be careful that they do not come out flat against a team they should beat easily. Laurent Brossoit gets the start tonight. This is the part of the season where contenders take care of business against lesser teams. Hopefully the Jets come out flying against the Flyers.
