Game 52: Jets vs. Ducks pre-game report

A look at the game 52 projected lineup along with pre-game audio.

Jets vs Ducks

After kicking off their three game home stand with a 4-3 win over the Blue Jackets last night the Jets are looking to continue their home dominance at Bell MTS Place which includes six straight wins and 10 of their last 12 games.  The Ducks on the other hand are just 2-6-2 in their last ten games.  This will be their first game in 10 days as they try to right the ship and get back above the playoff line (surprisingly they are just one point back).

For now the projected lines and D pairs are simply based on the last game.

AM Skate:

According to Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun defenceman Dustin Byfuglien is wearing a yellow non-contact uniform.  Jack Roslovic left the morning skate early according to his coach with cramping.  Nic Petan could draw in.

Coach Maurice:  On Jack Roslovic leaving skate early.  Hellebuyck getting start.   Same D pairs?  On status of Byfuglien.  On a new look Ducks team.  Is there an advantage to facing the Ducks after they’ve had a long break?  On how Nic Petan has handled being out.  Where would Petan fit in?

Health Update:

This morning Dustin Byfuglien was in the yellow non-contact and this is what coach Maurice had to say about big number 33 “He’s felt good for a week now.  We’ve got a full practice scheduled here in a couple of days.  First time in a long time and that’ll be a good indicator of where he’s at.  He’ll got full on in that and we’ll make a decision how he comes back the next day.”
