LAST TIME OUT
Chicago snapped a five-game winless streak with a resounding 8-4 win in Calgary on Saturday night. It was the highest offensive output of the season as Alex Nylander struck twice and Jonathan Toews, Dominik Kubalik, Brandon Saad, Alex DeBrincat, Patrick Kane and Kirby Dach all scored a goal.
Winnipeg dropped a 3-2 game to the San Jose Sharks on Friday night, the second straight loss for the Jets. Kyle Connor and Blake Wheeler scored the goals for Winnipeg as the visitors came from behind in the third to earn the full two points.
Eight days ago the same two teams met on the same ice as the Blackhawks jumped out to a 2-0 lead, only to see Winnipeg take a 5-2 win with a pair of late empty-netters. In four meetings this season, Chicago has a 2-1-1 record against the Jets.
