LAST TIME OUT
Chicago dropped a 4-1 result on Wednesday night at home against the Colorado Avalanche. Ryan Carpenter scored the lone goal for the Blackhawks and Corey Crawford stopped 32 of the 35 shots he faced in the loss.
Winnipeg fell at home on Tuesday night to the Carolina Hurricanes, 6-3. Mark Sheifele scored his team-leading 16th goal in the loss, while Connor Hellebuyck stopped 18 of the 23 shots he faced.
The two teams met once earlier this season with the Jets taking a 3-2 overtime win at the United Center on Oct. 12. Brandon Saad and Brent Seabrook each struck in the first period but Sheifele's OT winner less than a minute into the extra frame sealed the victory for the visitors.
