Game 69: Jets vs Leafs pre-game report

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

The Jets picked up a rare but much needed third win in a row as they defeated the Sabres 3-2 in a shootout last night in Buffalo. It is still going to be tough for Winnipeg but they need to continue picking up victories if they want to make the playoffs.

The biggest lineup question mark is which goalie will be started although the expectation is that it will be Connor Hellebuyck in tonight’s critical game. Interim head coach Dave Lowry wouldn’t reveal who gets the start.

Recall news:

The Jets recalled Morgan Barron on an emergency basis from the Moose.

Lineup news:

The Jets are starting Eric Comrie in net.  And Morgan Barron will make his Jets debut as he suits up in place of Adam Brooks.

Jets projected lines & D pairs:

Svechnikov-Dubois-Wheeler
Stastny-Scheifele-Ehlers
Sanford-Lowry-Appleton
Harkins-Toninato-Barron

Morrissey-DeMelo
Heinola-Pionk
Stanley-Dillon

Comrie
Hellebuyck
