The Winnipeg Jets are playing the Columbus Blue Jackets with Patrik Laine returning to Winnipeg with the weather welcoming him with its coldness that he loved.

According to reports, David Rittich is going to be starting for the Jets which makes sense because the Blue Jackets are a weaker team and the Jets have a bunch of games in December and Connor Hellebuyck.

The Blue Jackets are a bad team and well below .500. They are the opposite of the Jets in that sense. The Jets have been cruising since a rough start to the season. Elliotte Friedman was saying in his 32 Thoughts blog that Rick Bowness is like a grandfather who does not get upset, but disappointed in them. Makes it harder for the Jets to play badly because disappointed is worse than anger.

Expect Laine to have a big game if he can. He loved the city when he was here and he is also capable of lighting the lamp in big ways.
