The Jets are feeling good with their game right now (7-2-1 in last 10) while the Flames are feeling the exact opposite going winless in their last seven games (0-5-2). Of course, that could set itself up for a trap game for Winnipeg who will be facing a Calgary team desperate to change the narrative in front of their home fans.
While the Jets did recall Mikey Eyssimont from the Moose on Friday based on how practice went it appears he will simply be insurance for them as they play back-t0-back tonight in Calgary and tomorrow night in Seattle. For now the lines and D pairs are based on Friday’s skate and will be updated when the morning skate gets underway.
As per Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun it appears that yesterday’s practice lines and D pairs are the same as they are using today at the Saddledome.
Jets projected lines & D pairs:

Despite the Jets flying high and the Flames torch looking somewhat diminished they oddsmakers favour the home team in tonight’s contest which, given how Connor Hellebuyck is playing right now, seems out of whack. Be sure to check out the latest game day odds from Betway.
