The MTS Centre and the Winnipeg Jets welcome the Dallas Stars to town for Sunday NHL action.
Dallas let a 3-1 lead slip through their fingers on the way to a disappointing 4-3 shootout loss to visiting Calgary on Friday. The second period belonged to the Stars with Antoine Roussel, Jaime Benn and Erik Cole tallied for the home team for a 3-1 lead but it was all downhill from there. Tim Thomas stopped 27 shots to take the defeat which ended the team's winning streak at three. Mike Cammallleri led the Flames attack with a pair of goals with Paul Byron adding another with Corban Knight scoring the game winner in the SO while Joey MacDonald won it on a 22 save effort.

The once hot Jets are officially struggling after a 4-2 loss to the visiting Rangers saddled the team with six consecutive defeats. The highlight of the game for Winnipeg was a pair of first period tallies off the sticks of Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien. The loss was costly with Ondrej Pavelec leaving with an injury in the first with Al Montoya coming in to record 13 stops in the loss. Carl Hagelin led the Rangers attack with three goals for his first hat trick with Chris Kreider adding the other tally while Henrik Lundqvist recorded the victory with 30 stops.
Dallas is 6-2 in the last eight visits to Winnipeg and 12-4 in the past 16 meetings overall while the over has gone 5-1 in the last six in Winnipeg. My initial lean was take the better odds with the Stars but as always I have to know who is in goal...
