The Jets rested on Saturday following back-to-back wins over the Kings and Coyotes on Thursday and Friday. There is still a question mark surrounding the health of defenceman Logan Stanley who has been held out of the last two games after he blocked a shot. Only expected lineup change would be the return of Connor Hellebuyck between the pipes. We shall have to wait and see if there are any others made.
No morning skate for Winnipeg but assistant coach Marty Johnston will be speaking this afternoon so updates will have to wait till then. For now the projected lines and D pairs are based on last game.
Jets projected lines & D pairs:
Jonsson-Fjallby Gustafsson Maenalanen
The Jets come into this game having won three straight games, but they are going up against a Golden Knights team that beat them handily in their last meeting, who are also riding a three-game win streak and sit at the top of the Pacific Standings with a 7-2-0 record. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Winnipeg are the underdog ahead of puck drop but as they say, Vegas is a town where folks go to beat the odds.
