The Jets have hit a bit of a rough patch going 1-3-0 in their last four games and they are heading to a place where it is next to impossible to pick up a regulation win. Minnesota have gone 9-1-3 at the not-so-friendly Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. So much for that Minnesota Nice moniker. The Wild sit two points back of the Jets in the standings which should make this a very interesting game between these two rivals.
It is possible that Jansen Harkins makes his NHL debut but it sounds like that will be contingent on the health of the Jets bottom six. For now the projected lineup is based on the last game against the Hawks.
Jansen Harkins makes will in fact make his NHL debut.
