WINNIPEG - With six points in their pocket through the first three games, the Winnipeg Jets have their sights set on wrapping up this four-game home stand the right way.
But standing in the way of that perfect four-for-four stretch is the Buffalo Sabres, who have won four of their last five games.
A big part of Winnipeg's seven wins in their last 10 has been the play of captain Blake Wheeler. The 32-year-old has points in 11 straight games, accumulating 20 points in that span.
His focus isn't on his stats though. It's on what his team has done well during this time at home.
"Our emphasis has been on structurally doing the right things, coming back, stopping and starting," said Wheeeler. "From there chances are going to come, we're going to get offensive opportunities. Our line has been going pretty good, our power play has been going pretty good. Those things all contribute to getting some good looks."
