Game 20: Jets vs. Flames pre-game report

A look at the game 20 projected lineup along with pre-game audio.

Saddledome

The Jets are looking to keep their five-game (4-0-1) points streak alive tonight in Calgary.  Based on yesterday’s practice it looks like Coach Maurice will stick with the same lineup he has used the last number of games.

AM skate notes:

As per Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press no changes to the roster that the Jets have been running for awhile now.

Projected Jets lines, D pairs and starting goalie:

Ehlers-Scheifele-Wheeler
Connor-Little-Laine
Copp-Lowry-Tanev
Petan-Roslovic-Perreault

Morrissey-Trouba
Chiarot-Byfuglien
Morrow-Myers

Hellebuyck
Brossoit

Audio:

Blake Wheeler

Josh Morrissey

Coach Maurice:  What does he see the potential of the 2nd line is?  Trust in the 4th line.  Putting Roslovic back on the wing.  Was there a conversation with Roslovic when he was a healthy scratch?  How would he assess the play of his 3rd pairing?  Has he seen Joe Morrow get more into a rhythm?  Does he expect to get into Niku into a game this weekend?  Goalie plan for the back to back this weekend?
