Audio:

Blake Wheeler: Importance of getting the wrapping up the home stand the right way.  Has he watched much of what Calgary has been able to do from afar? On the Jets shuffling the lines.

Josh Morrissey:  Trying to fill Enstorm’s role.  What he is expecting from the Flames.  Any extra incentive to try to stop the Calgary streak?  How is he feeling?

Coach Maurice:  Status of Ben Chiarot?  Changing up the lines.  What is he hoping to get from Nic Petan?  Are the Jets still an optimistic group?  Does a game like tonight compare to a playoff game?  Importance of young players (i.e. Scheifele, Ehlers, Trouba) to play in playoff games?  How has Calgary accomplished their hot streak and how can the Jets mimic it?  Can the Jets go on a similar run?  Searching for a penalty killer (i.e. like a Michael Frolik).  Status of Melchiori?  On the changes to the Jets power play.

Flames lines:

Gaudreau-Monahan-Ferland
Tkachuk-Backlund-Frolik
Versteeg-Bennett-Brouwer
