Game 36: Jets vs Flames pre-game report

A look at the game 36 projected lineups and pre-game interviews.

Tonight’s game between the Jets and Flames should be a good one. Calgary is looking to get things turned around after finally winning last contest which arrested their four game losing streak. Winnipeg on the other hand has gone 3-3-0 in last six games on the road and wants to end this seven-game road trip with a victory before they return home for four games.

Morning skate news:

Gets going at 11:30 am in Calgary which is 12:30 pm in Winnipeg. For now the only expected change is Connor Hellebuyck back in net.  The lines and D pairs will be updated once skate gets going (or once head coach Paul Maurice confirms his lineup).

Roster news:

Paul Maurice says no lineup changes for the Jets. Aside from Connor Hellebuyck in net.
