    The Winnipeg Jets begin a season-high six-game homestand against the Carolina Hurricanes...The Jets were shutout 3-0 by the Nashville Predators on Thursday night to fall to 2-2-0 on the season...The homestand continues Tuesday night against the Edmonton Oilers.

    Long Homestands
    This is the 12th homestand in franchise history of six games or more...The Jets had two homestands of six games or more last season, going 6-3-1 during a 10-game homestand from Jan. 30-Feb. 20 and a perfect 6-0-0 in a six-game homestand from Mar. 15-27...Of the 12 homestands, 10 have come since relocation in 2011...The Jets franchise is 38-26-8 all-time in games during homestands of six games or more.

    Home Success
    The Jets have won 10 consecutive home games dating back to last season...Since Feb. 13/18, the Jets are 13-2-0 at Bell MTS Place and have an NHL best .867 winning percentage on home ice...Winnipeg has outscored their opposition 60-37 in those 15 games...Six of the Jets last seven wins on home ice have been by one goal, including two shootout victories.

    Dominating the East
    Tomorrow is Winnipeg's first game against an Eastern Conference opponent this season...Six of the Jets next 10 games are against a team from the East...The Jets went 19-7-6 against the Eastern Conference last season, including a 10-3-3 record versus the Atlantic Division and 9-4-3 record against the Metropolitan Division...Blake Wheeler led the Jets with 37 points (10G, 27A) in 31 games against the Eastern Conference, which was tied for fourth among Western Conference players last season...Goaltender Connor Hellebuyck went 15-3-5 versus the East.

    The Killers
    Through four games, the Jets have played 17:24 more on the penalty kill than they have on the power play, which is the most in the NHL...The Jets have been shorthanded 20 times this season, which is tied for the most in the NHL, and are 85% on the penalty kill, which is up from their 81.8% success rate last season...On Thursday in Nashville, the Jets were assessed 60 minutes in penalties and went a perfect 9-for-9 on the penalty kill, which was two shy of tying the team record for most successful penalty kills in a game (11 - Oct. 29/02 vs. LAK)...It was the sixth time in franchise history the Jets were perfect on the penalty kill after having to kill nine or more power play chances against...Thursday's game was the 10th time in franchise history that the Jets were assessed 60 penalty minutes or more in a game and first time since taking 84 minutes in penalties Nov. 14/15 at Nashville.

    Lots of Rubber
    Goaltender Connor Hellebuyck has faced 124 shots through four games this season, which is tied for the fourth-most in the NHL...His 114 saves are also fourth-most in the NHL...Hellebuyck has won his last nine starts at Bell MTS Place, posting a 2.17 goals-against average and .922 save percentage.

    Three for KC
    Kyle Connor leads the Jets in scoring this season with four points (3G, 1A) in four games...He scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's win against Los Angeles and had a goal in all of Winnipeg's first three games this season...He has nine career game-winning goals, including five in his last 14 games dating back to last season.

    At the Dot
    Adam Lowry has been the Jets top faceoff man this season, winning 54.8% (34-of-62) of his faceoffs...He won 6-of-11 draws on Thursday to be Winnipeg's only centreman above 50%...Lowry won 14-of-18 faceoffs in the Jets home opener on Tuesday.

    Canes have been looking better to start the year so it's a good thing we're getting them on a back to back.

    Hopefully we don't get garbage tier reffing tonight but the guys have to be more disciplined either way.

    As always, looking forward to the game. I'll be interested to see what the third jersey looks like in game action. I think the Jets pull out a tight one.

    You have to play him at some point. Can't sit him too long before getting some game action.

    Oh I'm not opposed to it, I just assumed that his first game would have been during a spurt where games were more condensed.

    Battle of two of the top Finns...hopefully our guy and his team comes out on top.

    Patty boy needs to snap out of “some things” and I know their line hasn’t been great, but enough of the blaming every misstep of his on Little or PoMo. If he’s every bit as good as many of us on here think, he should be creating his own excitement....no?

    I know this won’t be a popular take with many and I realize it’s early in the year and would expect him to get back to his scoring ways, but he has to own some of the issues that are plaguing him.

    By the way, I am not in any way saying that Little is playing great. He’s got his own issues!

    The Jets got a pretty well spaced schedule until a B2B on the road Oct 26 and 27, I think this would have seen Brossoit sit too long. I'm guessing Maurice mapped out his starts for the month well in advance. Ideally he ends up playing about 1 in 4 games throughout the season to help keep Helly fresh.

    This also implies that Kulikov is not injured and has been a scratch in favor of Morrow and Chiarot .

    I hope we learned from last year and give Hellebuyck more rest. I would really like to see Brossoit get more game in. Give him 35% of the starts i believe he is more than a capable goalie. It's not that i don't believe in Hellebuyck. I would just like to see him fresh if we were able to go on a deep playoff run.
