The game was a battle of wills between goaltenders that continued even into the overtime.
Patrick Berglund opened up the scoring in the second off a pass from Paul Statsny, with Mark Scheifele responding in the third to tie it up. The game then continued tied until the shootout, where the Blues scored two in the first round and the Jets were only able to come up with one.
Let's break it down.

The Jets enter today's game *still* holding onto the first Wild Card spot in the west with a 31-20-11 record. This is good enough for fourth in the Central Division and fifth in the Western Conference. Divisional rivals St. Louis Blues meanwhile carry a 38-18-4 record.
Jets won their last game in regulation and are 5-2-3 in their last ten. Stars also lost their last game, although in regulation, and are 5-5-0 over their last 10.

The Winnipeg Jets have already made quite a few moves. Drew Stafford and Tyler Myers were brought in as part of the package deal in return for Evander Kane and Zach Bogosian. The Jets also purchased Jiri Tlusty as a rental from the Carolina Hurricanes for a third and a conditional fifth or sixth round pick.
This does not mean Kevin Cheveldayoff's job is done. As teams try to shuffle their roster and cap to fit new pieces, the Jets may be able to pry a few lower depth pieces in upgrading their own.
Let's take a look at a few forwards who should be on the Jets 2015 trade deadline shopping list.

The Winnipeg Jets made a trade to shore up their injured forward depth. Like last time the Jets made a trade due to injuries, the player joining the Jets is from the Carolina Hurricanes.
Jiri Tlusty is a twenty-six year-old winger who will becomes a free agent over the summer.
What does Tlusty bring to the table?

The Winnipeg Jets have further added to their rapidly atrophying forward depth by acquiring Jiri Tlusty in a trade with the Carolina Hurricanes.
Tlusty, 26, is a pending unrestricted free agent who has managed 13 goals and 23 points for the Hurricanes. In exchange, the Jets will send Winnipeg a third-round draft pick in in 2016 and a conditional sixth-round draft choice in 2015.
Unfortunately in the same press release in which they announced the deal, the Jets also announced that they've placed forward Blake Wheeler on injured reserve. It's like the Jets' forward depth is eroding as quickly as Kevin Cheveldayoff can make trades to supplement it...
