Game 15: Jets vs. Oilers pre-game report

A look at the game 15 projected lineups and pre-game interviews.

The Jets will look to kick off their four-game road trip with a win tonight in Edmonton against the surging Oilers. It won’t be easy as the home team has won three straight games (including a 3-0 win over Montreal in their last game). The Jets will be without Pierre-Luc Dubois tonight. Dubois is with the team on the trip but he is not quite ready to return to the lineup yet.

Roster news:

Jets Head Coach Paul Maurice confirmed that the team will use 12 forwards and six defencemen tonight. Maurice indicated that Jansen Harkins is ready to return to the lineup (he has been activated by the team to the active roster) and he also added that Nate Thompson and Pierre-Luc Dubois are close.  While he didn’t project his lineup this is what you should expect to see tonight.
