The Jets are gonna be looking to bring that same 60 minute effort they had when they shutout the Blues on Monday, this evening when they kick off three games on the road starting with a Kings team that boasts the same .500 record held by Winnipeg.
The biggest roster question mark is the health of Logan Stanley who didn’t skate on Wednesday after blocking a shot in the win over St. Louis. Dylan Samberg, who recently ditched his non-contact jersey, could take his spot. We shall have to wait and see what morning skate brings. Also possible that Dominic Toninato makes his season debut for Winnipeg as he was skating on the 4th line.
As per Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun no Logan Stanley at skate today at Crypto Arena. Ted confirmed the lines and D pairs are the same as they were at yesterday’s practice in Winnipeg although worth noting that Saku Maenalanen stays in and Dominic Toninato is a healthy scratch..
Jets projected lines & D pairs:
Jonsson-Fjallby Gustafsson Maenalanen
Extras: Toninato, Capobianco
If you like to pick the underdogs then so far this season the Jets would be your team because while the odds aren’t usually significant they continue to favour the opponent of Winnipeg and given the strength of schedule they’ve faced that isn’t a big surprise. Having said that it is a bit of a surprise that two .500 teams aren’t a little closer together from an odds perspective. Be sure to check out the latest game day odds from Betway.
