It’s the back end of a home and home series between the two clubs after the Jets defeated the Coyotes at the Gila River Arena in Phoenix on Saturday.

Matt Hendricks, Mark Scheifele, Kyle Connor and Patrik Laine were all on target for Winnipeg who are six points adrift of the St. Louis Blues in the Central Division, but with three games in hand.

The Philadelphia Flyers and New Jersey Devils will follow the Coyotes into town on Thursday and Saturday, before the Jets head out on a four-game road swing that will visit the Nashville Predators, Los Angeles Kings, Anaheim Ducks and the San Jose Sharks.

The Blues, meanwhile, lost their second in a row when they fell 7-4 to the Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary.

Tied at two apiece entering the third period, the Flames exploded for five goals, including one into an empty net, as Calgary enjoyed their biggest offensive output of the campaign.

The win over St. Louis was the fifth victory in six outings for the Flames, who concluded an excellent home stand that included wins over the Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins, New Jersey Devils and the Blues.

The useful form has pushed Calgary into a tie for third in the Pacific Division, even with the Sharks, a point behind the Vegas Golden Knights and four back of the Division-leading Kings.
