Previous Game Recap & Statistics

The Winnipeg Jets are 2-1 in their current five-game homestand. This is better than expected, especially with the opponents they’ve faced. They are coming off of a 3-2 loss to the Dallas Stars, a game where Dallas played really solid all around.

There wasn’t any scoring in the first period, but there were a few penalties taken. The goaltenders stopped everything they could, but it was Thomas Harley of the Dallas Stars who found the back of the net. Wyatt Johnston wasn’t too far behind with a short-handed goal to put the stars up two goals. The Jets would slowly battle back, but they weren’t able to get much to the net. When there seemed to be little hope for the Jets, Cole Perfetti scored to cut the Stars’ lead in half. Not too long after Perfetti scored, Matt Duchene would score on the power play to put the Stars up 3-1.

The Jets would not have any power play opportunities in the last 35 minutes of the game versus Dallas. The Jets were 0/3, while the Stars were 1/4. Brendan Dillon scored his fourth goal of the season to bring the game within one goal, but it wasn’t enough for the Jets to take the game to overtime.

Scott Wedgewood stopped 31 of 33 shots he faced for a 0.939 save percentage. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 26 of 29 shots he faced for a 0.897 save percentage.

Preview of Winnipeg Jets vs Opponent

While Winnipeg just came off of a loss against the Dallas Stars, the New Jersey Devils are on a two-game losing skid. Both teams are looking to bounce back tonight with a key victory to place themselves higher in their division and conference.

Key Things To Look For In Tonight’s Game

The Jets need to minimize the amount of penalties they take tonight. The New Jersey Devils have a near 40% power play percentage. They are super dominant and keep a near 90% puck possession when they have a power play. Hopefully, the Jets can minimize the chances New Jersey has on the power play.

Arniel’s patience with the current lineup is impressive and frightening simultaneously. Scott Arniel has been so patient with the Winnipeg Jets lineup so far, and he hasn’t made any significant switches that are noteworthy.

Formation has been a critical issue up until this point, how do the Jets solve this problem? This is a big issue for the Winnipeg Jets. They have a high-energy team, but they cannot capitalize on how they individually function in specific formations. Scheifele playing like he’s glued to the side wall on the power play isn’t working. Ehlers needs to continue to move his feet until he finds an open slot that allows him a high-danger opportunity. Schmidt has to either quit jumping ahead of the play or fall back earlier, and this can potentially minimize the number of goals we face in the long term.
