The Winnipeg Jets conclude their three-game road trip tonight at the United Center with a matchup against the Chicago Blackhawks. The opening puck drop is set for 6:00 p.m. central time.

The Jets had an interesting topsy-turvy game last time out on Friday night in Dallas against the Central Division leading stars. Winnipeg wound up winning the game 5-4 in overtime, but the game had some controversy. You can read all about what happened by clicking the link here or the “NEXT” link at the bottom of this article.

Regardless of what happened last game, the Jets dealt well with adversity to still win the game and gain a point on the Stars in the standings.

The Winnipeg Jets take on the Chicago Blackhawks who have struggled as of late

It has been over two weeks since the Blackhawks won a game. Since the Blackhawks beat the Anaheim Ducks on November 12, they have lost their next six games with five of those losses coming in regulation.

Chicago’s one non-regulation loss came their last time out, on Friday evening, against the Montreal Canadiens. The game needed a shootout to be decided and all three Montreal players scored, while the Blackhawks only converted on two of their three shots.

The Blackhawks have also yet to win a game against a Central Division opponent. The ‘Hawks’ have a 0-4-1 record against the Central. On the other hand, the Jets have played well against their own division as they have a 6-2-0 record versus their Central foes.

Where to catch the game

For those viewing from the Winnipeg Jets market, the game will be on TSN3, while the game will be on NBSCH in the Chicago market. This game will also be available in the United States on the NHL Network. If you are tuning in on the radio, the game can be found on 680 CJOB.
