Game 46: Jets vs. Golden Knights pre-game report

A look at the game 46 projected lineup along with pre-game audio.

Jets vs Golden Knights

The Jets conclude their three-game homestand against a Golden Knights team they haven’t faced since Vegas eliminated Winnipeg in the Western Conference Final last May.  Plenty of talk about revenge following yesterday’s optional practice although both teams, who are tied with 60 points, will likely be focused on adding two points to the standings bank rather than worrying about a series that is already yesterday’s news. This is the final home game for a few weeks for the Jets with the Player and All-Star breaks so it should be a fun atmosphere added to an already potentially charged one.

The question for the Jets remains the status of Tyler Myers who missed the last pair of games with a lower-body injury and is listed by the team as day-to-day.  For now the projected lines and D pairs is simply based on the previous game.

AM Skate Update:

As per Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press it looks like Laurent Brossoit will get the start tonight in net.  He adds that Tyler Myers is taking in today’s morning skate while Ben Chiarot and Blake Wheeler are not present.

Jets projected lines, D pairs and starting goalie:





Bryan Little

Tyler Myers

Adam Lowry

Mark Scheifele

Coach Maurice:  On the decision to start Brossoit tonight.  Trying to get Brossoit one more game before the break.  Getting Tyler Myers back into the lineup.  Any other lineup news?  Benefits to getting Hellebuyck some time between starts.  Where do they miss Paul Stastny?  Does he expect anything extra from these two teams given the playoff history?  On the D pairings?

A new d man out as Ben Chairot is “lower-body, day-to-day” according to coach Mauriuce.
