Game 50: Jets vs Canadiens pre-game report

A look at the game 50 projected lineups and pre-game interviews.

The Jets ended their last road trip feeling good about the state of their game having gone 4-1-0 but the time they spent at home recently left them with an 0-5-0 record which has them limping into Montreal looking to regain that road swagger. While the Jets brought four new faces on the trip for their taxi squad the big question is the status of Adam Lowry who wore yellow, non-contact in the last skate for Winnipeg on Wednesday morning.
