Dallas Stars vs. Winnipeg Jets Preview and Predictions 12-03-2019


The Winnipeg Jets host the Dallas Stars on Tuesday in a meeting of foes who look to continue their outstanding play from November in a very competitive Central Division. The Stars went 10-2-1 last month while the Jets finished 10-3-1, and they are tied for third in the division behind only St. Louis and Colorado after splitting a pair of November matchups.

"We knew at the start of the year our division was going to be a good division," Dallas forward Blake Comeau told reporters after the Stars began December with a 3-2 shootout loss Sunday at Minnesota. "Teams are starting to play well." Comeau and defenseman John Klingberg scored for the Stars, but it wasn't enough as Dallas fell to 0-2-1 in its past three games after going 14-1-1 in its previous 16 contests. The Jets also come into the matchup following a defeat, losing on Saturday at Los Angeles 2-1 after starting slow and giving up both tallies in the first period. "Our game is definitely night and day from where it was in October," Jets captain Blake Wheeler told the media postgame. "We put ourselves in a good position here and looking toward the next month."
