JGD 8: *Insert Bad "Wild" Pun Here* As Jets Host Minnesota

Tonight's contest is the division rivalry that feels like it should be a much more heated match up than it is right now as the Minnesota Wild visit the MTS Centre for their first regular season meeting with the Winnipeg Jets.

The Wild "won" the seven game regular season series in 2014-15 going 5-1-1 versus the Jets. Of course the Jets managed to go 4-2-1 against the Wild which only makes sense when you realize no one in the NHL really loses any more, some teams just don't win as much as others.

The good news is it looks like the Winnipeg Jets have gotten over their overly poor starts to games. The bad news is it looks like they still haven't quite figured out how to put a full 60 minutes of hockey effort together.

A good first period followed by a poor second and an exciting third led into a very frantic and all too brief 3 on 3 OT where the Jets lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3.

JGD 7: Jets Continue Homestand Against Bolts

The Winnipeg Jets will play the third game of their six-game homestand tonight as they welcome to town Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning. 

The Jets last played on Sunday in a hard fought 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues. It was a close game throughout. The Jets never lead during the game, but equalized the score twice. However, they were unable to get even it a third time and a late power play goal secured a 4-2 Blues win. 

The Lightning are currently on a four-game road trip. They began their road trip with a stop in Nashville on Tuesday. Like the Jets, they played a close, hard fought game, but came up short with a 5-4 shootout loss. 

Both teams will be looking to get back to their winning ways tonight and prevent themselves from losing two in a row. 

Jets Nation recently took a look at the Jets defensive woes so far this season. They rank significantly below league average in unblocked shot attempts, shots on goal, scoring chances, and high-danger scoring chances. The Jets are also in the top third of the league in minor penalties taken. 

This is interesting to not because, with the Lightning coming to town who have a ridiculously deadly offense, they will need to be better defensively and stay out of the box. Otherwise, it will be very difficult to come out with a win tonight.
