WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- At MTS Centre, Jets games against the Flyers are always entertaining -- and sometimes rather depressing.
 
After all, this is where Chris Pronger’s career ended back in 2011. Pronger was minus-2 that afternoon, complaining of flashing lights on the ice and such after a 6-4 loss on Nov. 19.
 
He never played another game for the Flyers because of post-concussion syndrome.
 
The Flyers are 2-2 in this building since the Jets moved here, and both teams come into this game with three-game winning streaks.
 
Flyers coach Craig Berube would love to end the road trip with a three-game sweep, but given the brutal, cross-country travel of three games in four nights, he won’t be disappointed if he can steal a point and get out of town, either.
 
The Flyers have collected nine points in their last five road games.
 
Goalie Steve Mason is expected back in net. He had a 5-0 shutout win at Ottawa earlier this week.
 
Winnipeg will counter with Ondrej Pavelec, who picked up his seventh win of the season Tuesday in a 3-2 shootout win at Detroit.
