JNGD.S8.G28 Flight Plan: Jets Look For A Blues Sweep And A Fifth Win In A Row

The Jets will look to extend their season high winning streak to five games as they return home from a very successful three game road trip to take on the St. Louis Blues Friday night in the friendly confines of BMTSP.

Oh hey speaking of five, that was how many goals that Patrik Laine scored a little under two weeks ago against these same Blues in an 8-4 win in St. Louis. The Jets and Blues have already played each other three times this season with the Jets winning the previous three, so there is a chance for a sweep tonight.

Despite what the lineups tell you below, late breaking this morning we have confirmation that both Dustin Byfuglien and Dmitri Kulikov will be dressed tonight against the Blues.
