The Injury bug has hit the Jets forwards seven games in to the season and Winnipeg is in need of reinforcements up front. Luckily for Winnipeg, the plethora of young talent they have developing with the Manitoba Moose can jump in and provide assistance on a whim. The Jets have recalled Marko Dano from the Manitoba Moose to help make up for the loss of Bryan Little and Drew Stafford for the rest of the Jets road trip.
What's to make of the call up?

After beating the Stars 4-1 last night, the Jets hopped on a plane and headed to Denver to take on the Avalanche. Prior to boarding, Coach Maurice said the lineup would look the same, but Michael Hutchinson would get the call in net. (That being said, it was announced early this morning that Marko Dano got the call-up from the Moose and did travel with the team. With no morning skate, we probably won't know if he plays until gametime).
The Jets look to build on yesterday's outstanding showing by their young guns by getting back to .500 to start their first winning streak of the season. Puck drops at 8pm (Winnipeg time) and will be on TSN3 and TSN1290.

Things got off to a rockin' start with Myers smashing one past Niemi 15 seconds into he game (Armia was eventually credited with am assist). Playing with the lead looked quite a bit better than playing from behind and a quicker-to-the-puck Jets team seemed to be winning all the battles through the first period. The power play look a lot better, with one man-advantage registering 8 shots but no goals. Kyle Connor scored his first of the season on another slick set-up from Nikolaj Ehlers to put the Jets up 2-0.
The second period was more of the same from the Jets as they just looked faster than the Stars. Laine put a laser of wrist shot in the far top corner 8 seconds into a power-play and gave a little stick spin to celebrate and the Jets were ahead 3-0 and never really looked back. Seguin scored a power play goal (high glove on Hellebuyck again) in the early moments of the third but the Stars didn't really threaten after that. Laine blasted another pure sniper's goal to tie him for the league lead with Auston Matthews at 6 goals apiece. Down 4-1, the Stars were pulling their goalie while on the power-play with five minutes left, but their desperation didn't pay off.
