The Winnipeg Jets are playing the St. Louis Blues again and this game is important. The Jets are first in the team the Wild Card standings and the St. Louis Blues are the top team in the division Western Conference. They were extremely good at responding to goals against in the last game they played and are looking to continue that this afternoon against the Jets.
The Jets are still without all their injured players, but Mathieu Perreault is back to skating with the team and Bryan Little is starting to work his way back. They are starting to get contributions from the fourth line with the addition of Jansen Harkins, but who knows how long that will last.
The Blues are a weird team. They are good, but you kind of forget about them for some reason even though they won the Stanley Cup last season. They are just there and then your team plays them and they win. It is kind of amazing how good they are at being forgotten and it is not like the Minnesota Wild who are kind of forgettable in so many ways.
