In warm up skate Drew Stafford wasn’t out and Brandon Tanev was in his spot according to Ted Wyman of Winnipeg Sun despite the fact that coach Maurice said this morning that they’d be using the same lines as they did in Pittsburgh. Jets just confirmed the lines:
Coach Maurice: Any lineup updates? Challenges for the game today. On the changes in Montreal behind the bench. On what Julien does to make his teams good. Does he still see areas where they can take advantage of teams coming off the break? Update on Wheeler. On cancelling the skate yesterday. If the play the way they did in Pittsburgh can they continue to have success? Does he sense any unease in the team leading up to the trade deadline? Is he surprised the way his team reacts to physical games? Any updates on Pavelec/Dano?
