Game 40: Jets vs Canadiens pre-game report

A look at the game 40 projected lineups and pre-game interviews.

The Jets left Winnipeg on Wednesday without their captain as Blake Wheeler is dealing with the ramifications of a hit to the head he took on Monday against the Senators.  As a result we saw a change in the configuration with Andrew Copp moving into Wheeler’s spot, Mathieu Perreault taking Copp’s spot on the third line and Jansen Harkins going back into the lineup for the first time since February 19th.

The Habs are coming off a 3-2 regulation loss to the Leafs last night in Toronto.
