The Winnipeg Jets try to keep the wins rolling against the semi lame Ducks

NHL: Anaheim Ducks at Winnipeg Jets Terrence Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Winnipeg Jets are coming off two tight, hard fought wins thanks in large part to the reignited play of Kyle Connor. He and his line mates have been outstanding the last two games for the Jets. The Ducks get Corey Perry back in the line up tonight, but are 2-10-4 in their last 16 games. Expect stellar goaltending from John Gibson despite their troubles this year as a team.

The Nic Petan fan club of Winnipeg may be happy tonight as he may substitute in for Jack Roslovic who had cramps at the morning skate. There has been speculation that Petan might be moved at the trade deadline, and he is trying to remain positive despite the rumours. Dustin Byfuglien remains out, but is getting closer to returning.

Random Prediction:

Brandon Tanev scores a goal and a gets hit with a puck to the back, leg, arm ...
