It's game two of the a six game home stand for the Winnipeg Jets as the St. Louis Blues come into town for a Central Division clash. The puck drops at 2 pm at MTS Centre and can be seen on TSN 3 and heard on TSN 1290.
The Jets are off to a 4 win and 1 loss start and looking for their third win in a row after taking out the Rangers in New York and the Flames in the home opener. The Blues sport the same win / loss record as the Jets and are entering game five of a six game road trip that so far has worked out well for them going 3 and 1 with wins against Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver.

Kyle Connor's debut with Michigan is one to be remembered. The freshman scored 2 goals and 1 assist, leading his new team to a 6-4 victory over Mercyhurst University.
His first point, an assist, came on the opening goal. Connor deflected a point shot that was then picked up by teammate Boo Nieves. Connor would would score later in the 1st period, stealing the puck for a shorthanded breakaway goal. What a way to get your first, eh? He would go on to score an empty net goal on a blind backhand shot to seal the victory.

The good times keep rolling on! Your Winnipeg Jets were the equivalent of an 18 wheeler tonight; a little slow to start but once they got going they were impossible to stop as they ran over the Calgary Flames 3-1.
We break down the game after the jump...

The Jets come home for the first time this season, hosting the Calgary Flames tonight at the MTS Centre.
Winnipeg has started the season well: three wins and just one loss, to the New York Islanders, on their four game road trip. The Flames have had a less auspicious start to the season, with a 1-2-0 record so far.
Some acknowledgement should go to Michael Frolik's return to Winnipeg tonight as a Calgary Flame, touched on earlier today at Jets Nation. Unsurprisingly, he says he very much would like to score a goal against his former team, and his close friend Ondrej Pavelec.
Nothing against Frolik, but here's hoping he goes home disappointed.

A familiar face will return to Winnipeg on Friday night when the Jets host the Calgary Flames in their home opener at the MTS Centre.
Michael Frolik, who spent two seasons with the Jets and helped the club clinch its first playoff berth since 2007, will be donning a Flames jersey when he steps on the ice to face his former teammates for the first time since inking a five-year, $21.5-million deal with Calgary.
Having played under Paul Maurice's system, Frolik claims he can be the Flames' No. 1 pre-game scout heading into the matchup.
