The Honda Center and the Anaheim Ducks host the Winnipeg Jets in a Tuesday night bout.
Winnipeg blew a third period lead before regrouping to upend Edmonton 3-2 in overtime. Blake Wheeler fed Jacob Trouba in front of the net and he tipped it past a surprised Ilya Bryzgalov to end it. Trouba scored twice including a shothanded tally while rookie Mark Scheifele netted the other as the Jets sent 36 shots at Bryzgalov. Ondrej Pavelec received more help from his suppoting cast with 20 stops to pick up the win. The Jets have now won three in a row as they face Western Conference titan Anaheim Tuesday.

The Ducks have been almost unbeatable at times before Chicago knocked them off in overtime Friday. That put the stop on an eight game winning streak but Anaheim might have started another hot streak when they picked up a 3-2 decision at St Louis Saturday. The visitors scored just under six minutes in on Ryan Getzlaf's 25th of the year while Cam Fowler and Matt Beleskey each lit the lamp in the second for what seemed to be an insurmoutable 3-0. The Blues didn't go away with a pair of third period tallies before Frederik Andersen stood tall over the final 5 1/2 minutes in goal to get his team right back on the winning side while making 34 stops to pick up another victory.
I think the key number here is Anaheim's 20-0-1-1 record at home. Not much to say except it won't last the entire year but the question is will it end Tuesday? Too much juice to play straight up but a parlay or regulation bet might reduce the juice...
