Game 16: Jets vs Oilers pre-game report

A look at the game 16 projected lineups and pre-game interviews.

The Jets left Winnipeg yesterday with a 5-1-1 record after they concluded their seven game homestand. They are out west for a quick two-game road trip starting tonight in Edmonton which will conclude a home and home series with the Oilers.

They left veteran forward Paul Stastny in Winnipeg as he continues to recover from a friendly fire shot he took back on November 6th. Expectations are that the team will run the exact same lineup as they used against Edmonton on Tuesday in their 5-2 win.

Only note from skate was via Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV who indicated “Connor Hellebuyck’s regular starting goaltender routine has commenced.”
