Coach Maurice:   Which goalie tonight?  Health updates (Lowry, Mason, Scheifele & Matthias).  Same lineup?  On if the offence has been there for the Jets.  On the level of parity in the NHL.  Keys to success against the Canucks.  Are the Jets better prepared to handle grinding, low scoring games?  On Roslovic’s play.
