Game 13: Jets vs Sharks pre-game report

A look at the game 13 projected lineups and pre-game interviews.

Much like the game on Tuesday there are question marks heading into tonight’s game against San Jose. Mark Scheifele, Nikolaj Ehlers and Paul Stastny all didn’t take part in practice on Wednesday although head coach Paul Maurice didn’t seem too concerned.
