    Winnipeg Jets (25-12-2) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (22-12-6)
    PPG Paints Arena
    Jan.4th, 2019
    7:00 EST

    Scouting Report
    The Penguins are right up there in the standings after winning 7 in a row, and 9 of their past 10.

    The Pens having out-scored their opponents 28-9 during their current winning streak.

    Meanwhile, the Jets feature the second-best record in the Western Conference. Furthermore, they have played the fewest games (39) of any team currently in a playoff spot.

    It's all about adjustments for the Jets, who still have key players from last seasons run to the Western Conference Final.

    This squad can run and gun or they can grind it out. Either way, the home team will have their hands full.

    The top two lines of the Jets are very, very good...I’d really like to see our bottom six take advantage of theirs...this is where a clicking L3 should be winning...if Brass could only pick it up (sigh)

    Maatta-Olek better not be out there against the Jets top six...

    I wonder if Sully will put Geno’s line out against Sheifele and Wheeler....

    Great work, BHD...!

    This will be the only WWF/WWE gif I'll post in remembrance of the late Mean Gene Okerlund.

    Jesse Ventura is the one who gave him that nickname.

    RIP. Old pal...

    How do you not put Sid's line out against their top line along with Dumoulin and Letang.

    This is where you find out if they got what it takes. Kessel or Geno should see favorable matchups.

    Because Maurice was matching up Scheifele and Wheeler on Sid the last time they played and Scheifele had two goals...also now that Phil has moved away from G and Horny is there, I just wonder....

    Both teams are so LOADED with weapons that it's foolish to say one is more dangerous than the other. The bigger question is how each team will try to contain the other.

    This will be a good test tonight for the Pens against a very deadly Jets team.

    Not only that but the NHL schedulers should get a big middle finger from Pens fans for giving them 4 days off before this game...(and Chicago 3 days..not that they need any additional help to beat the Pens...)

    I’ll be at a hockey game tonight. Going to see Moncton play Quebec.

    Make sure the Pens win!

    Pens goal tending has been exceptional. Not sure about the Jets lately but Pens get up on the Jets and keep them honest with the pens PP.

    The goal against the Jets is always to leave without any injuries, they're one of the dirtiest pos teams out there.

    I'm old, so I first watched him on an old Canadian skit show called Bizarre in the early '80s. Always the best segment.

    Fuji Hakahito was an amazing straight man.

    Do you really think they're that dirty? They're big and can be physical, but I don't think they have any Grade A dirtbags.

    A lot of extra **** after the play and behind the play. Keep an eye on it tonight, you'll see.

    I expect there’ll be a lot running at Murray...let’s just hope JJ doesn’t push someone onto to him again and add to his misery....
