On Nov. 25, the Winnipeg Jets picked up their fourth loss in a row, falling 3-0 to the Columbus Blue Jackets. In the last four games, they’ve scored a total of just four goals.
With both @Pierre-Luc Dubois and @Riley Nash making their returns to Columbus, I thought the Jets would have been fired up to beat the Blue Jackets. Unfortunately, I was wrong and this team made me look silly on all accounts. On the night, I went 1-for-6 regarding my bets Tuesday evening.
Let’s see if this matinee game against the Minnesota Wild can turn around my luck while also helping the Jets return to the win column.
What You Need to Know About the Jets
Heading into this contest, the Jets are positioned third in the Central Division with 22 points. The Colorado Avalanche are just one point behind them, however, they own three games in hand on the Jets. Since Nov. 6, the Jets have gone 1-for-22 on the power play, placing them second-last in the league during that span.
Goaltender @Connor Hellebuyck will be starting in goal this afternoon. Despite losing his last three games, he’s still been fantastic this season, posting a 2.54 goals-against average and .921 save percentage.
Veteran @Paul Stastny could return from his eight-game absence during this contest against the Wild, although his status won’t be officially determined until the pre-game skate.
@Kyle Connor remains the Jets’ leader in scoring, with 12 goals and 22 points. On the other hand, @Andrew Copp leads the team with 11 assists.
On the season, the Jets are sixth in goals against, allowing 2.58 a game. Annoyingly, this club is tied with two other teams (New York Rangers and Seattle Kraken) at 16th in goals for, averaging 2.84 per game.

Goaltender @Cam Talbot will be in net this afternoon. Talbot is sporting a 10-5-0 record, 2.87 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage through 15 games this season. The Wild will be without @Jared Spurgeon Friday.
