The Nation Network Notebook is a regular feature that rounds up interesting news, stories, and rumours from around the NHL that don't quite deserve their own article.
Dylan Strome scored a goal that was interesting enough to get ESPN talking about hockey! On TV, too! 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.

That was a great hockey game. That was a great hockey game. It didn't end the way the Jets were hoping -- the Penguins scored an overtime winner with 22 seconds left -- but despite a tepid start, it was one of the most exciting Jets games of the season.

The Jets are faced with a difficult task to kickstart their four-game Eastern Conference road trip.
Tonight, Winnipeg will face off against a Pittsburgh team that hopes to have one of their own join elite company. With a single point tonight, Sidney Crosby will reach the prestigious 1,000 point plateau. The opportunity to reach such a milestone on home-ice will certainly bring upon a motivated Crosby and that's the last thing the Jets want to face off against.

Puck drop tonight is slated for 6:00 CT and you can catch all the action on TSN3 and as always, TSN 1290 radio.

Some injury news on the Winnipeg Jets front, as Tobias Enstrom had successful surgery for a "lower body injury" and will be able to return to action in two-to-three weeks.
Also, Andrew Copp, who was banged up in Tuesday's game against the Dallas Stars, will not travel with the team to Pittsburgh today. He likely won't be available until the end of February.
