Jets, Predators square off with sights set on division title

The Winnipeg Jets are a win away from clinching a playoff spot, but both the Jets and the visiting Nashville Predators have the Central Division title in mind when the two teams face off on Saturday night.

Winnipeg is two points ahead of Nashville in the division race, plus the Jets (44-26-4, 92 points) have a game in hand on their Tennessee rivals. A win on Saturday would put the Jets a big step closer to the first division championship in the 19-season history of the Thrashers/Jets franchise.

Beyond those big-picture concerns, however, Winnipeg is more immediately looking to rebound from an ugly 5-0 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday. The Jets went into Las Vegas on a four-game winning streak but generated a season-low 20 shots en route to their fourth shutout defeat of the season.
