Game 73: Jets vs. Ducks pre-game report

A look at the game 73 projected lineup along with pre-game audio.

Jets at Ducks

The Jets are in Anaheim to take on a Ducks team that sit second last in the Western Conference although they have won two straight and are 6-4-0 in their last 10 games.

Morning Skate:

As per Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun no sign of defenceman Nathan Beaulieu, instead Joe Morrow is paired with Jacob Trouba.  Ted also indicates that Jack Roslovic is back in his spot on the 4th line.  Jason Bell of the Winnipeg Free Press adds that Connor Hellebuyck will get the start in net.

Jets projected lineup:

Laine – Scheifele – Wheeler
Connor – Hayes – Ehlers

Morrow – Trouba
Kulikov – Myers
Chiarot – Niku



Ben Chiarot

Mathieu Perreault

Brandon Tanev

Coach Maurice:  Update on Nathan Beaulieu?  On Joe Morrow getting back into the lineup.  What does he like about Morrow’s game?  On the depth of the Jets D. What does he hope that Roslovic will take from his one game in the pressbox?  What does he see from the Ducks?  Any further reflections on the Kings game after watching it again?  On the light switching on in March.  On Kyle Connor understanding the defensive game.  Is Patrik Laine learning more about the defensive game now that he’s playing on the top line?

Health News:

Nathan Beaulieu wasn’t on the ice and according to his coach he is “Out today.  Day to day”.  Beaulieu got into a fight with Kyle Clifford in the game against the Kings two days ago so perhaps this is a result of that incident.
