Posted by David Minuk in pre-game report,Winnipeg Jets on November 22, 2017 — No Comments

The Jets are in L.A. to take on the Kings in the second of four games on the road.  If there are any changes to the lineup we will update but lines posted below are based on game against Nashville.  We could see Steve Mason in net but we will have to wait to see what happens at morning skate.

Morning skate notes:

As per Jason Bell of the Winnipeg Free Press it appears that Jets bench boss Paul Maurice is sticking with his same lineup that he used on Monday.  As per Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun it will be Steve Mason in net for Winnipeg.

Projected lines, D Pairs:

Connor-Scheifele-Wheeler
Ehlers-Little-Laine
Copp-Lowry-Tanev
Perreault-Hendricks-Armia

Morrissey-Trouba
Chiarot-Byfuglien
Kulikov-Myers

Mason
Hellebuyck

Extras:  Matthias, Dano and Poolman.

Scrum Topics: On Mason getting the start. Keys to Mason staying ready. Can Hellebuyck use this time off to tweak things? On going back to the lineup he used against Predators after blending in 3rd. Any temptation to break up Ehlers/Laine? Thoughts on Chiarot’s game in Nashville.  The adjustment for Bryan Little to playing with Ehlers/Laine.  Thought’s on Stars coach Ken Hitchcok disclosing injuries.  Adam Lowry facing his dad (assistant coach with Kings).
