The Jets held an optional skate this morning.

The top three lines remain the same as last game.  The only change according to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun is that Marko Dano goes onto the 4th line for Joel Armia.  Ken also indicated that Tucker Poolman is possible to play tonight but that it would be a game-time decision.

Coach Maurice:  Possible lineup changes.  On sitting Armia and inserting Dano.  Decision to start Hellebuyck.  On the play of Mathieu Perreault.  Does Perreault lead by example or is he a veteran voice?  Facing McDavid/Draisaitl.  On the overall team defence.
