Two teams at the bottom of the Central Division standings look to start making a move when they meet on Saturday in Dallas. The Winnipeg Jets come into this one losers of three straight games, though they did pick up a couple of points with an overtime and shootout loss. Thursday night they got a late goal from Blake Wheeler to even the score with the Nashville Predators at 2-2 before they finally fell in overtime. They've got a tough match up in front of them on Saturday night because despite Dallas' 4-5-0 record on the season the Stars have been very good at home. They've won three of their four games at the American Airlines Center and now they'll be taking on a Jets club that's not known for being great on the road. The Stars are also coming off a great win on Thursday night that saw them dominate the Calgary Flames by a final of 5-1. Alex Chiasson continued to score goals, adding two more in this one, and Jamie Benn also scored twice. There's a lot of talent in Dallas and the Stars just need to figure out how to put it all together and play .500 hundred hockey on the road. Kari Lehtonen stopped 28 of the 29 shots he faced on Thursday to pick up the win. This should be a good one on Saturday but the edge has to go with the Stars here on home ice.
