Game 50: Jets vs Flames pre-game report

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

Hard to believe the season is at game 50 and yet it is almost the end of February and the Jets are only playing game 50. They face a tough task to start four games on the road when they take on a very good Flames team in Calgary who sit in top spot in the Pacific, are 13-4-4 at the Saddledome and are 9-1-0 in their last 10 games. Not too shabby.

With no morning skate due to the game being in the afternoon the expectation is that things will look the way they did at practice in Winnipeg on Sunday. Which means Winnipegger Adam Brooks is expected to make his Jets debut.

Warm-up news:

Starts at 2:30 PM CST.

Jets projected lines & D pairs:

Stastny-Scheifele-Wheeler
Connor-Dubois-Vesalainen
Harkins-Lowry-Reichel
Svechnikov-Toninato-Poganski

Morrissey-DeMelo
Dillon-Pionk
Stanley-Schmidt

Hellebuyck
Comrie

Still a few hours to go before the Jets pre-season game gets under in Edmonton which gives you lots of time to check out yesterday’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show.
