The Jets picked up a big two points on Thursday thanks to Patrik Laine firing home the first hat trick of the season for this squad and Connor Hellebuyck making 36 saves as Winnipeg improved to 8-4-1 on the season. Little rest for either team with today’s game.
AM skate notes:
No skate scheduled.
Jets coach Paul Maurice confirmed that Dmitry Kulikov comes out with Joe Morrow going back in as well as Nic Petan will make his season debut as Jack Roslovic will take a seat upstairs.
Projected Jets lines, D pairs and starting goalie:
Coach Maurice: What’s it like getting ready for the finale of the Global Series? Getting out of the gate on the right skate. Playing same team in back-to-back scenarios. What did he say to Patrik Laine after the game? On what Laine was able to do on a stage like that? Did he see the confidence come back after Laine’s first goal? Is there something wrong with Kulikov’s game? Any lineup changes?
