I am once again asking everyone to keep the discussion to the game at hand. Any discussions about the scandal that the Chicago Blackhawks hid can be had on the most recent story about it.

The Winnipeg Jets are back at it and might have Blake Wheeler back in the lineup after he has been out with COVID-19. They have been playing well without him and hopefully his return will not break up the good vibes the Jets have going. The return of Mark Scheifele is a little more complex as there is a two week rule post COVID that he will not play for a while longer even if he is cleared. I believe the same could be true for Wheeler, but I was tired when I read the explanations.

As for the rest of the team, they were lucky to get out of Anaheim with two points. The Los Angeles Kings only have one win on the season, but one must be wary of thinking a team could be easy pickings. No team can be written off in the NHL and the Jets should be on guard against that notion tonight. It is not clear who will be starting as far as I can tell, but it could very well be Eric Comrie so buckle up.
