Game 64: Jets vs. Wild pre-game report

A look at the game 64 projected lineups and audio.

Wild at Jets

According to Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun here are the projected lines and D pairs:




*Lowry wasn’t on the ice this morning so Copp took his spot this morning at skate.  Coach Maurice confirmed that Lowry was fine and would suit up tonight.  The Jets bench boss also confirmed that Tobias Enstrom would play which is ahead of schedule.


Blake Wheeler:  Challenges presented by the Wild.  How do they carry the momentum from the pre-break streak?  On the mumps going through the Wild room.  On the trade deadline.  Does he have interest in the activity that surrounds trade deadline?

Mathieu Perreault:  Trade deadline talk.  Would he be surprised if he was moved?  On seeing Shattenkirk getting moved.  On the mumps going through the league again.  On the Wild.

Tobias Enstorm:  On how he is feeling.  Was he surprised at how quickly he came back?  Did he think the injury was more serious?  What is his mindset being five points out with 19 games to go?  Does he look at it like they still control their own destiny?  On trade deadline talk.

Coach Maurice:  On what Enstrom brings to the lineup.  Status of Lowry.  What did he learn about the Wild from last night’s game?  Any concerns about the mumps?  Has he ever dealt with it before?  How close is the organization to being “in the hunt” at this point in the season?  How close is this team to being a playoff team and winning a round?  On having a different set of expectations from this group at the start of next season?  Sum vs. Parts of the Jets.
