Game 58: Jets vs. Rangers projected lines

A look at the game 58 projected lineups and pre-game audio.

This should be an interesting game tonight as Jacob Trouba and Brendan Lemieux return to Winnipeg for the first time since they were traded (separately) last year to the New York Rangers.  The Blueshirts are 6-4-0 in their last 10 games, including a 4-1 win over the LA Kings on Sunday. The Jets are 4-0-1 in their last five games.

The Jets were off on Monday following back-to-back wins over the Ottawa Senators and Chicago Blackhawks.  For now the projected lineup is simply based on last game.
