I’m already tired of seeing the Sens.

The Winnipeg Jets are back home to conclude their 3-game series against the Ottawa Senators. The Jets have taken 4 of 4 available points so far, and will look to complete the series sweep against a beleaguered Ottawa side. The Sens have blown a lead to lose in overtime, and then got obliterated this past Thursday. Fortune favors Winnipeg on this one.

I’m expecting the Jets to take care of business and dust these pesky Sens 4-2. Even without Patrik Laine, this team still has enough firepower to deal with most of the North division. Dylan DeMelo is also sliding back into the line-up, likely replacing Logan Stanley or Ville Heinola. I’ll be very disappointed if it’s Heinola. The Finn looks as ready as ever, and brings a whole host of useful traits to this tattered defense.
