The Jets are looking to tie their longest winning streak of the season (December 1st to 9th) at four games after finishing the 2011 calendar year with three consecutive victories.

Ondrej Pavelec starts in goal.  In December, Pavelec won seven games, had a 1.95 goals against average, 939 save percentage and two shutouts.

Blake Wheeler is on a five-game point streak (three goals and four assists).

Jim Slater returns to the lineup after missing the last two games due to an upper body injury. Defenceman Randy Jones also returns to the blueline after missing the last nine games due to injury. He has played just two of the last 26 games.

The final game of the season between these two teams is in Montreal February 5th.
