A look at the game 31 projected lineups and pre-game interviews.

The Jets are coming off a 2-1 regulation loss to the Oilers on Thursday night to kick off their seven-game road trip.  After taking a day to rest and recover the visitors are looking for revenge against an Edmonton club who are two points up on Winnipeg in the standings (although the Jets have three games in hand).

For now the lineup is simply based on the last game with exception that Connor Hellebuyck is expected in net.  We will wait to hear from Jets head coach Paul Maurice for an update.
