Game 50: Jets vs. Ducks pre-game report

A look at the game 50 projected lineups and audio.

Jets vs. Ducks

According to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun there were a number of players (Byfuglien, Enstrom, Pavelec and Trouba) missing from skate this morning.  Update: All the missing players are fine as it was an optional.

Here are the Jets lines, D pairs based on yesterday’s skate at the MTS Centre:

Perreault-Little-Wheeler
Copp-Scheifele-Ehlers
Matthias-Lowry-Armia
Tanev-Petan-Thorburn

Morrissey-Byfuglien
Enstrom-Trouba
Stuart-Postma

Pavelec
Hellebuyck

Audio:

Shawn Matthias

Brandon Tanev

Nikolaj Ehlers

Coach Maurice:  Improvement to Perreault’s play, what does he attribute it to?  Putting Perreault with Wheeler and Little.  Is Pavelec OK?  How close are the Jets to finding and sticking to their “identity”?  Optional for D men missing as well?  Would he consider Pavelec for tomorrow’s game as well?  What are some determining factors in potentially using Pavelec tomorrow?  Does he see much difference in the Ducks this year?  How do you prepare to face Ryan Kesler?  How did Laine respond to yesterday’s skate?  What are the storylines that stand out for the Jets 50 games into the season?

Time for some Wednesday night hockey in Winnipeg.

Reminder: The game isn't being televised so you'll either have to be there or watch via the Jets website.
