The Winnipeg Jets and Edmonton Oilers hope to snap out of their respective struggles ahead of the holiday break as they go head-to-head on tonight at Rexall Place.

Viewers in the Jets region can watch the game live on TSN Jets at 8pm ct/9pm et. You can also listen in on TSN Radio 1290 and on tsn.ca/winnipeg.

Winnipeg was in action on Sunday night and lost 2-1 to the hosting Vancouver Canucks. It was the Jets' fifth loss in their last seven games.

Evander Kane scored a game-tying power-play goal in the second period, his 10th tally of the campaign, and Ondrej Pavelec made 23 saves. Mark Scheifele had an assist go give him three goals and five helpers over a six-game point streak.

"We played a good road game. ... I thought our intensity stepped up in the second," said Winnipeg head coach Claude Noel. "We carried a lot of the play. We weren't able to close out and push ahead. That was one of the problems we had."

The Jets and Oilers opened the season against each other on Oct. 1, with Winnipeg notching a 5-4 victory in Edmonton. Michael Frolik had the game- winner, Scheifele scored and Pavelec made 34 saves.

Devan Dubnyk made just 23 saves and yielded all five goals in the setback.

The Jets snapped a two-game losing streak to the Oilers and have won two of their last three in Edmonton.

The Oilers are in the midst of a season-high six-game losing streak and have been shut out in three of their last five games. Edmonton has been outscored 24-6 over its longest skid since dropping six straight from April 4-16 of last season.

Averaging just 2.45 goals per game, the Oilers have been shut out in an NHL high-tying six games this season and are coming off a 6-0 setback to the visiting St. Louis Blues on Saturday.

Ilya Bryzgalov surrendered all six goals on 33 shots.

"I wasn't good enough tonight. I didn't give our guys a chance to win," said Bryzgalov, who is 1-4-0 in seven games since joining the Oilers with a 2.94 goals against average and .917 save percentage.

The Oilers are hoping to avoid posting their longest losing streak since dropping 11 in a row from March 8-31, 2011.
