Game 9: Jets vs Golden Knights pre-game report

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

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.

Skate news:

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:

Perfetti-Scheifele-Wheeler
Connor-Dubois-Appleton
Barron-Lowry-Gagner
Jonsson-Fjallby Gustafsson Maenalanen

Morrissey-Pionk
Dillion-Schmidt
Samberg-DeMelo

Hellebuyck
Rittich

Betway Odds:

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.
