All They Do Is Win, Win, Win

Since Nov. 2, the Jets and their AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose, have made the hands go up in Winnipeg by going a combined 17-3-1...The Jets are 8-2-1 since Nov. 2, which is the second-best record in the NHL...The Jets have won six of their last seven games and can go on their fourth winning streak of at least three games with a victory tonight...The Moose are 9-1-0 since Nov. 2 and are riding a five-game winning streak...Neither team has lost in regulation at Bell MTS Place since the Jets fell 5-2 to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 17...Since then, the two clubs are 11-0-3 on home ice.

Win No. 15

A win tonight would give the Jets their 15th win of the season...To do it in 23 games would be a team record.
