Game 49: Jets vs. Blackhawks projected lines

A look at the game 49 projected lineups and pre-game audio.

The Jets will be looking to bounce back from a brutal 7-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night in Winnipeg. Meanwhile the Chicago Blackhawks rolled over the Maple Leafs last night in Toronto 6-2 and now they sit just two points back of the Jets in the standings.

No word from the coach as to which goalie is starting.

No skate this morning.

Lineup News:

Coach Maurice confirms it will be the same lineup today including Connor Hellebuyck in net.

Projected Lines and D Pairs:





Coach Maurice:  Any lineup changes?  Facing a Hawks team that played last night.  On the message delivered to players.  Learning that “skill”.  What is the key to getting off to a good start against Chicago?  The play of Jonathan Toews.  How does the centre switch on the top two lines changes Winnipeg offensively and defensively?  Recall of Nelson Nogier.  On Hellebuyck rebounding.
