The Winnipeg Jets have jumped out to a strong start to the season with a 9-1-0 record, but one has to recognize that most of, if not all, the games have been against opponents that are either unlikely to make the playoffs or are going to be contending for the last spots to get in. 

Wednesday night that will change as the Jets will fly into Detroit to take on the 8-2-0 Red Wings.  The Wings are part of the Chuck Norris Division which appears set up to be a gauntlet for the season, especially with the former Maple Leafs now in Columbus being one of those teams, and the always dominant Colorado Rockies. 

The Wings and Jets split their four game series in 1993 with two wins a piece with Detroit slightly winning the scoring duel.   

Center Kirk Muller will be looking to extend his scoring streak to nine games after collecting a pair of points Tuesday night against the Buffalo Sabres.  Al MacInnis continues to set the defense scoring race in the NHL as he notched another two points and now has 19 points through the first ten games of the season. 

Allan Bester will be back in net for his ten start of the season and currently leads the NFHL with a 2.33 GAA, while posting an 8-1-0 record.
