Jets Finally Return Home after Long Road Swing to Face Division Rival St. Louis

Winnipeg has reached the NHL playoffs just once in franchise history, dating back to its inception as the Atlanta Thrashers in '99 before relocating to Manitoba in 2011.

And Noel's future in Winnipeg just might depend on how the Jets finish. While Noel doesn't sound all that concerned about sitting 18th overall, he does say the Jets need a new benchmark for success.

"I think .500 has been the grade for us and we have to have to get a little bit over that," he said. "We know what we have to do.

"I don't think we have to be reminded of that. We could help ourselves a great deal this week because we're dealing with divisional opponents and they're four point games. If we could grab two clean points per game, that would really help us."

Winnipeg's first home game since a 3-2 shootout loss to Minnesota will come Tuesday against the St. Louis Blues. Then the Jets will face the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday before playing the Dallas Stars on Saturday. …
