The Jets are dealing with the news that they have lost Nikolaj Ehlers for 5-6 weeks (mid to early February) and they have adjusted their lines accordingly as they try to right the ship having lost three of their last four games. This will be a four point game as they face a Central Division rival in Dallas who has been hot of late winning two straight and are 4-0-1 in their last five. However the Stars are just 8-11-2 away from Texas.
No skate as it is an afternoon game.
