Game 37: Jets vs. Flames pre-game report

A look at the game 37 projected lineup along with pre-game audio.

Jets vs Flames

The Jets and Flames will meet in a battle of division leaders as Winnipeg is atop the Central with 50 points while Calgary holds top spot in the Pacific with 47 points.  The big question for Winnipeg will be whether Andrew Copp and Adam Lowry are healthy and ready to the lineup.

AM Skate:

Scott Billeck reporting that Andrew Copp and Adam Lowry are both on the ice early ahead of morning skate with Copp also sporting a tinted visor for the equipment aficionados out there.  The projected lines are updated via Scott who indicates that both Petan and Lemieux are the extras with Copp and Lowry drawing back in.

Projected Jets lines, D pairs and starting goalie:

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

Coach Maurice:  What is he looking for from Copp and Lowry tonight?  What has Mason Appleton done to stick in the lineup?  What did he like about Appleton on the penalty kill?  What does he expect this game to look like after the break?  On the first 10 minutes of the last game against the Flames.  On the challenges the Flames present.  Is the matchup game important against the Flames?  On the Jets being 10-0-0 when tied after 40 minutes and how they managed to stick to the game plan.
