The price is heavy, so we’re laying the Puck Line in what should be an easy skate for the Winnipeg Jets, who are 3-0-0 in December. The Jets come into this one having won four straight, and all by close scores — including three on the road, at New Jersey, Brooklyn and Long Island.

The Jets are home for the first time since Nov. 29, and it’s a Friday night that should see a frenzied crowd that opens a four-game homestand. The Jets, who are 9-3-2 at home, outmatch the St. Louis Blues, who have lost four of five, seven of nine, and six of eight on the road.

The Blues will struggle to keep up with the Jets tonight, as the home team rolls to the easy win.
