The Winnipeg Jets travel to Arizona tonight to take on the Coyotes in the 2015 finale.
The Jets are looking for their first three-game winning streak of the season. The Jets blanked the Pittsburgh Penguins 1-0 on Sunday, then followed that up with a 4-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings two nights later.
The Jets are also looking to end a streak. They've lost five straight games on the road, their last win being on Nov. 27 in Minnesota. They've lost 11 of their last 12 road games and are 6-12-1 overall on the road this season.

With the injury of Mark Scheifele, the forward depth of the Jets is being tested. With Jets managment opting to go for a youth movement, certain offensively minded players were not resigned in the 2015 off-season.
To fill the hole of losing Scheifele, players are being forced to play in roles they are not used to or do not have the proper skill set to fill the hole.
This begs the question, do the Jets need to make a trade to properly fill the 2nd line centre spot if Scheifele is out long term?

The Winnipeg Jets are hitting the road for a five-game road trip and Ondrej Pavelec is tagging along too.
The starting goalie went down with a knee injury on Nov. 21 during a game against the Arizona Coyotes. But Pavelec is making progress and is on schedule to return mid-to-late January or early February at the very latest, leaving head coach Paul Maurice with some tough decisions to make.

Winning is fun. Beating good teams are fun. The Winnipeg Jets are experiencing this phenomenon called winning and it's a good time had by all. Two goals from Jacob Trouba plus a 33-save performance from Connor Hellebuyck gave the Jets a 4-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings helping the sold out crowd at the MTS Centre get over their post Christmas blahs.

It's always fun when an Original Six franchise pays a visit to the Manitoba capital. Especially when they only come once a year. The Detroit Red Wings will make their only stop to the MTS Centre on Tuesday to face the Winnipeg Jets.
