The Winnipeg Jets are in Chicago tonight for their fourth and final regular season game against the Blackhawks.

Chicago is 3-0 against Winnipeg this season, outscoring the Jets 15-5 in those games. Jonathan Toews leads the Blackhawks with two goals and three assists.
Tonight's game is a 6pm ct faceoff on TSN 1290 Radio and regionally on TSN Jets TV.

Neither team had a pre-game skate on Sunday morning at the United Center so the line-ups will not be known until warm-up.
The (24-24-5) Jets are seventh in the Central Division with 53 points. They trail Vancouver by eight points for a Western Conference Wild Card playoff spot. The Canucks have played one less game than the Jets.
Winnipeg is coming off a 5-4 overtime win last night at home against Toronto. So far this season, the Jets' record is 0-5-1 when playing the second game of back-to-backs on the schedule.
Over the past six games, Ondrej Pavelec's record is 5-1 with a 1.98 goals against average and .927 save percentage.
Bryan Little has 11 points (three goals and eight assists) in his last nine games.
The (32-9-12) Blackhawks are first in the Central Division with 76 points. They have a one-point lead on second-place St. Louis, however the Blues have two games in hand.
Chicago's last two games were a 5-4 shootout loss in Detroit and a 2-1 loss in Minnesota. Their longest winless streak of the season is three games.
Patrick Sharp and Patrick Kane are on three-game point streaks (one goal and two assists).
Sharp leads the Blackhawks with 26 goals while Kane is their assists (35) and points (59) leader.
Chicago's power play is ranked third in the NHL at 22 per cent efficiency.
The Jets next game is Tuesday at home against Nashville.
