Back in action and needing back into the win column in the worst way, the Winnipeg Jets will host the Atlantic leading Boston Bruins. Winnipeg has lost it’s last four games in a row and six of its last seven and is threatening to fall out of the playoff race completely unless they reverse those trends.

Last Bruins Game

The Bruins went into their break on a positive note against the Vegas Golden Knights after they rallied with two goals in the third period on the way to a 3-2 win.

Fun Bruins Facts…

  • The Bruins are 5-2-2 vs. Central Division opponents & are 10-3-3 vs. Western Conference foes. They are 4-2-2 in their last 8 road games & are 8-5-2 in their last 15 on the road.
  • Chris Wagner is playing his 300th NHL game tonight.
  • David Pastrnak is on a very unique streak of factoring into the game’s opening goal with either a goal or an assist in the last six games played, which ties an NHL record.
  • Boston recently had a streak of 14 straight games where they scored a power play goal from December 14 to January 13 (16 for 50, 32.0%).

What They’re Saying…

Winning almost 60 percent of his faceoffs at 34 years old, he averages 19:18 a night on the ice. He is second on the team with eight power-play goals and eight assists for the league’s third-ranked unit. The Bruins will need Patrice Bergeron to continue at his high level for the rest of the season.

The statement released by the Boston Bruins certainly screams out sales pitch, at least to some degree, with the notion of David Backs being ‘fit and able to play’ clearly pointing out that his concussion issues should not be a consideration in any trade approach.

Last Jets Game

It was more competitive and closer that their last few games had been, but the Winnipeg Jets still lost for the fourth game in a row, this time to the Columbus Blue Jackets by a 4-3 score.

Fun Jets Facts…

  • Winnipeg is an even 11-11-2 at home this season and play nine of their next 10 games at Bell MTS Place. The Jets are 1-6-1 in their past eight home games.
  • The Jets have 10 back-to-back sets this season, the seventh of which is this weekend. The Jets are 4-2-0 in the first and 2-4-0 in the second game of back-to-backs this season.
  • Three of the past five games between the Jets and Bruins have been decided in a shootout, with the Jets winning two of the three games.
  • Winnipeg has won the past two games against Boston at Bell MTS Place and five of the past seven meetings.
  • Tonight is the 500th NHL game in Mark Scheifele’s career.
  • Nikolaj Ehlers eeds one goal to pass Marian Hossa (108) for 10th in goals in franchise history.

What We’re Saying…

During their previous meeting back in Boston earlier this month, Winnipeg surrendered their one-goal lead in the final frame of the game by allowing back-to-back goals within just 33 seconds of each other. For both teams, allowing goals during the third period has become a major issue this month. Coming into tonight, the Jets are tied for the fourth-most goals (13) allowed in the third, while the Bruins are tied for the tenth-most (11) in that same category.
