Via Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun we get the following lines, D pairs and starting goalie:
No Howden on the ice according to Ken. Appears that Postma and De Leo are the scratches.
Player pre-game audio:
Jacob Trouba: How does it feel to re-charge the batteries? Was it more the mental or physical break? Expectations on the Wild. Does he keep an eye on the standings? On the development of a rivalry between the Jets and Wild.
Coach pre-game audio:
Paul Maurice: Is Stafford ready to go? Keys for Stafford as he gets back into the lineup? Added importance on these central division games, especially with how the road trip has gone? What do they have to do to get pucks past Dubnyk? Injury updates. What has he liked about Trouba’s return? Howden being sent down. On De Leo potentially getting into the lineup. Parallel of De Leo to Armia (from last season).
