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.

It's not hyperbolic to suggest that how the next two months play out could be franchise-altering for the Winnipeg Jets. With quite possibly their two most important players both facing uncertain futures with the organization this summer, what the team looks like in the years to come will surely be shaped by the direction they choose to head in.
As such, it goes without saying that Kevin Cheveldayoff and his staff need to approach all of their personnel decisions with the utmost care. Especially in the case of Dustin Byfuglien, who seems less likely of the two to be rewarded with the big contract he's looking for if the rumblings are any indication. All of which presents a rather interesting dilemma to keep an eye on as the February 29th trade deadline approaches.

Decades from now when Connor Hellebuyck tells the tale of his first career NHL shutout, it's likely he'll have to embellish a few things to make it far more interesting than what the game really was, but at the very least he can be very truthful about how he stared down a team loaded with talent like Crosby, Malkin and Kessel and led the Winnipeg Jets to a 30 save blanking of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
