The Jets take on the Montreal Canadiens this afternoon, at 1 o'clock CT. This will be the first game for the Canadiens since the surprise firing of Michel Therrien and subsequent hiring of Claude Julien.

This is another tough game against a good team, after a physical, intense matchup against the Penguins on Thursday. If the Jets play as well as they did on Thursday, though, they might actually win a game. You can catch this one on CBC.

Wheeler went to the quiet room for concussion protocol, but did return to the ice to finish the game. He isn't expected to miss any time with an injury from the hit.

Mathieu Perreault is having a rough year.

He's struggled to stay healthy and has seen a decline in production which has lead to his name being in the trade rumour mill. Perreault is an affordable skilled forward that can help many teams through the course of a playoff run. He is a forty point producer on the Jets, and has helped on any line he's played on. When we get to this point in the season, you have to consider if the Jets are a buying team or a selling team.

So the question is do the Winnipeg Jets move Perreault before the trade deadline?

Curtis Lazar was healthy scratched again, so we have to talk about the possibility of his days in Ottawa being numbered. Again! And Jaromir Jagr reaches another milestone, becoming the second player in NHL history to record 1900 career points.
