The Winnipeg Jets and St. Louis Blues are playing in another divisional game tonight. The Jets have been rolling along recently outside of a couple of hiccups. They will look to continue this tonight.

Expect David Rittich to start one of the next two games. Due to the Blues play this season the Jets might choose to play Connor Hellebuyck tomorrow night to give themselves a better chance at the win both nights.

The Blues have Jordan Binnington as their starting goalie and although he can be a good player, he can also be very hotheaded and do some really dumb things in the middle of a game. Look for the Jets to try and get under his skin.

The Blues do have talent on their roster, but they are below .500 and have allowed 20 more goals than they have scored. These are key points for the Jets because these are the games that they should come out and bury teams in, but they have struggled against bad teams this year.

The Jets will most likely maintain their lines which have been working really well for them. Unless more injuries hit, they have found lines that work really well, a re-emerging Kyle Connor and an excellent centre on Pierre-Luc Dubois.
