The Winnipeg Jets head into Minnesota to face the Wild and finish off the second half of back to back games. 

The Jets have the advantage so far in the regular season series, winning two out of three games so far between the Jets and Wild. This will be the third game between the two teams that is played at Xcel Energy Center, with each team winning once. 

The Jets are coming right off a wild (no pun intended) 5-4 overtime win over the Nashville Predators. It was a game that probably put a lot of Jets fans into emotional counseling, though.

When we first launched OilersNation.com back in 2007 we intended on watching the Oilers return to the Cup Finals for the 2nd time in 3 years and become a perennial powerhouse of hockey. A model of consistency. A team studied by Coaches for a generation to come for “how to build a winning franchise.” 

So when it became clear THAT wasn’t happening we started launching other team sites in 2009 starting with FlamesNation.ca. When that didn’t collapse or have a denial of service attack we started putting more and more sites out there creating 5 sites, partnering on 1 and buying 3 sites outright bringing the total to 9.

And today marks the 10th site in the Nation Network launching – WingsNation.com.
