Game 80: Jets vs Flyers pre-game report

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

The Jets and Flyers are both not in the playoffs so this game doesn’t have a lot behind it which could make for an “interesting” contest between these two squads.

About the only question marks for Winnipeg is whether they will have Zach Sanford back and which goalie they will use tonight. For now the lines are simply based on yesterday’s practice.

Skate news:

As per Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet it will be Eric Comrie in net tonight. He also indicated that Logan Stanley and Adam Brooks stayed on for extra work for it appears that Zach Sanford and Nate Schmidt are back.

Jets projected lines & D pairs:

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

Morrissey-DeMelo
Dillon-Schmidt
Samberg-Pionk

Comrie
Hellebuyck

Betway Odds:

Two teams with nothing to play for is a bit of a wild card when it comes to odds but after defeating the Avs on Sunday the Jets have the odds in their favour for tonight’s game. Be sure to check out the latest game day odds from Betway.
