The Jets come into tonight's game after a loss to the Stars, which ended their three-game winning streak, meaning Winnipeg is looking for revenge.
The good new for the Jackets is that the home-stand has led to Dubois, Nyquist, Jones and Bjorkstrad picking up points, but more importantly gaining confidence. If they are able to become as consistent as Werenski has been, then the Jackets will be in good shape.
Despite giving up four against the Red Wings, Korpisalo has been a steady force in net for the Blue Jackets since returning the to crease after a tough loss to Colorado lead to him being benched by Torts for a game.
Here's a look at tonight's projected lines for the Blue Jackets:
Scratches: Harrington, Nash
- Point Streaks. Werenski is on a five-game point streak and Dubois is on a three-game point streak. Both players have stepped up and come up with big plays for the Jackets this season.
- Power Play. The Blue Jackets power play has picked up four goals in their last three games and is looking dangerous. Couple that with the addition of Paul MacLean and the Jackets may have a winning formula for the rest of the season.
- Winning Streak. The Jackets are back above .500 since their five-game losing streak that started on October 26th against Philadelphia and are on their first three-game winning streak of the season. Tonight, they need to keep the streak alive or fall back to .500 on the season.
