WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets are busy gearing up for Sidney Crosby’s first visit to MTS Centre as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Jets have improved over their first three games of the season, and they have a 1-1-1 record to show for it. They will try to keep it going against Crosby, who missed both games in Winnipeg last year due to a concussion, and the Penguins on Friday night. The Penguins (2-1-0) should be in an owly mood after a 5-2 home loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday.
