The Carolina Hurricanes have one last game before the All Star break tonight against the Winnipeg Jets at home. Here’s how they can ground the Jets and head into the All Star Break on a high note.

The Carolina Hurricanes head into this matchup having beaten the New York Islanders in a shootout.

Thanks to Justin Williams and James Reimer, the Canes finally stopped their losing streak at 3 games, and look to extend their winning streak to 2 games tonight, hosting the Jets in Raleigh.

The Winnipeg Jets are coming off of two straight losses; a 5-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on 1/19, and a 7-1 blitzing from the Tampa Bay Lightning on 1/17.

The Jets have found themselves on the outs more often than not in their past 10 games, having won only 4 games in the same time period.

Tonight’s game, despite being against a Western Conference team, is hugely important for the Carolina Hurricanes. To walk away with a win tonight would give the Canes much needed momentum headed into the week-long break for the All Star celebration. Here’s how the Canes can gain that momentum.
