WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Jets coach Claude Noel speaks in simple, straight-forward terms a lot of the time. He is one of these what-you-see-is-what-you-get leaders.
So, it should come as no surprise to see his illustration for Winnipeg this season, especially when his Jets just missed the playoffs last season.
``I clearly see that we have to make the playoffs,'' he said in June. ``But it's not easy to make the playoffs.''
Last season, the Jets finished ninth in the East, four points behind the No. 8 New York Islanders. Winnipeg captured hearts in Canada and was in contention into the final week of the season. In the end, the Jets seemed to have everything, in fact, except a berth.
So, like some other teams in Canada - Calgary and Edmonton last year - the Jets will try, try again to find that elusive spot this season. It won't be easy, as Noel points out. The Jets are now in the Western Conference, as part of NHL realignment, and are in a division with Stanley Cup-champion Chicago, Minnesota and St. Louis.
Winnipeg opens vs. Edmonton on Oct. 1.
|DALLAS: DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Stars are starting over in their quest to end the longest playoff drought in franchise history.
There's a new general manager in Jim Nill, who hired a new coach in Lindy Ruff and overhauled the roster.
Ruff was the longest-tenured coach in the NHL when Buffalo fired him in the middle of last season. Now, he's trying to get the Stars back to the playoffs almost 15 years after he faced them in the Stanley Cup finals in 1999. Dallas won that title.
The biggest addition was Tyler Seguin, a two-time Stanley Cup finalist and one-time champion with Boston.
Forward Jamie Benn and goalie Kari Lehtonen are among the familiar faces for Dallas heading into the opener Oct. 3 against Florida.

*Jets-Stars Preview* ====================
By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer
Winnipeg (4-5-2) at Dallas (4-5-0), 7:00 p.m. EDT
After returning to lead the Dallas Stars on their home ice, Kari Lehtonen has an opportunity to help them extend their winning streak there.
The Winnipeg Jets have had a difficult time picking up wins regardless of the venue.
With its No. 1 goalie back between the pipes, Dallas looks to pick up a fourth straight home win Saturday night when it takes on the slumping Jets.
The Stars (4-5-0) were outscored 11-5 in dropping games at Los Angeles and Anaheim last weekend before regrouping back home with a 5-1 victory over Calgary on Thursday.
Dallas has allowed 19 goals during a four-game road losing streak, but it's given up five over this three-game run at home. In his first appearance after missing the previous five games, Lehtonen keyed Thursday's victory by turning away 28 of 29 shots.
Lehtonen stopped all 21 shots he faced before suffering a leg injury in a 4-1 win at Winnipeg on Oct. 11. Dallas lost four of five while he was out.
"I was a little rusty, but the guys kept it pretty simple," Lehtonen said. "They didn't get many crazy chances. They were simple shots and that was good for me to get back into playing."
The veteran has a 0.78 goals-against average and .974 save percentage while winning his last three starts, and he'll be looking to lead Dallas to its longest home streak since taking its first four games there in 2011-12.
The Jets (4-5-2) have averaged 1.89 goals while losing seven of nine. The Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise hasn't fared well in matchups with former Thrasher Lehtonen, scoring once on 51 shots in two losses.
Though they've averaged 40.7 shots during a three-game losing streak, the Jets have totaled seven goals. They fell 5-4 in a shootout to Washington on Tuesday before Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss at Nashville.
Ondrej Pavelec, who has started 10 of 11 games, has a 3.06 GAA after making 30 saves against the Predators. He's 2-2-0 with a 4.44 GAA lifetime against the Stars, giving up four goals on 31 shots while taking the loss Oct. 11.
"The biggest task for our team is to be consistent through the whole 60 minutes," said coach Claude Noel, whose Jets continue a four-game road trip against Central Division opponents.
Blake Wheeler has tried to provide a spark with a goal in each of the last two games. The right wing has a goal and six points in five career matchups against the Stars.
Evander Kane and Bryan Little lead the Jets with five goals apiece, but they've totaled one in a combined five meetings with Dallas.
The Stars' Jamie Benn and Alex Chiasson, who had two goals apiece Thursday, teamed for two scores and three assists in the most recent meeting with Winnipeg.
Teammate Tyler Seguin led the way with two goals and two assists in that contest as part of a six-game point streak, though he hasn't produced a point in the last two.
The Stars have won 12 of 15 all-time meetings with the Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise, including six of seven in Dallas.
