The Winnipeg Jets look for two straight wins after the all-stark break when they start an important road trip of divisional games on back-to-back days tonight. This evening, the Jets are in Dallas and they will face off against the Stars. The opening puck drop is set for 7:30 p.m. central time.

The Jets come into this contest after a great 2-0 shutout victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night. The Jets’ team defense and physical play, along with Connor Hellebuyck’s outstanding performance propelled the Jets to a much-needed victory over a Central Division foe.

Just like Winnipeg, Dallas also won their first game post-all-star break. On Wednesday, they beat the Predators 4-3 in a back-and-forth contest. Throughout the first two periods, every time the Stars scored the Predators answered. Finally, in the early stages of the third period, Dallas scored their fourth goal and they defended well to hang onto their one goal lead and win in regulation.

The Winnipeg Jets need a good result tonight to keep pace in the Central Division

Dallas currently sits in fifth place in the division, while the Jets are in sixth and are five points behind them with a game in hand. The Stars are also in third place in the Western Conference Wild Card standings. The Jets need a positive outcome to keep pace with the wild card race, while the Stars will be looking to close the gap on the second wild card spot.

Winnipeg Jets Lineup News

The Jets will still be without Pierre-Luc Dubois, who is still in the COVID-19 Protocol, but Neal Pionk and Austin Poganski have returned from the protocol and participated in practice yesterday and both are projected to be available.

Also, Logan Stanley was a full participant at practice but if the practice lines were any indication on how Winnipeg will lineup he may not be included in the lineup.

Connor Hellebuyck is projected to get the start in goal after posting a shutout against Minnesota.

The Jets and Stars have only met once before this season and that was way back in early November, with the Jets winning 4-3 in a shootout.

Although a lot has changed since that early season encounter, we can expect to see another close game between these sides.
