Hello from the sickbed! The Winnipeg Jets are playing the Vegas Golden Knights tonight in a game that is surely going to end in a way that will not be satisfying for one of the two teams. This is a crucial game as the Jets hunt down first in the Western Conference. The Jets have gotten here without the help of Nikolaj Ehlers who has been out with an injury most of the season. His loss has been a big one and it will be interesting to see how the Jets react when he finally comes back in a few weeks.

The Golden Knights are without their leading scorer, Jack Eichel, who is out with an injury. It appears to be a recent injury and it will be interesting to see how the Golden Knights manage without their leading scorer. It appears that the Golden Knights have been dealing with numerous injuries and are just trying to get by right now. That seems to be the case for most teams.

The Jets have defied expectations at the moment and will hopefully continue their strong play as the season goes on. They are without Logan Stanley again who has a long term injury as well as Saku Manaelanen who has also picked up an injury. The Jets might be needing a trade for more help soon to help them cope with the number of injuries they are currently dealing with. Outside of a lot of injuries, these two teams are obviously two of the top teams in the Western Conference and this should be a good game.
