Stanley Cup Playoffs – Round 2 Game 2: Jets vs. Predators pre-game report

Getting you set up for Game 2 of Round 2 between the Jets and Predators.

Bridgestone Arena

The Jets held an optional practice on Saturday so we didn’t get any insight into their potential roster for game 2 although it is likely to remain the same.  We will find out today and for now the projected lines and D pairs based on the last game.

AM Skate Notes:

Via Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun we learn “Looks like all healthy players present and accounted for at #NHLJets morning skate. Mathieu Perreault is in the non-contact jersey. Connor Hellebuyck sticking to his routine of skipping the am skate”.

Projected lines and D pairs:

Connor-Scheifele-Wheeler
Ehlers-Stastny-Laine
Tanev-Lowry-Little
Hendricks-Copp-Roslovic

Morrissey-Trouba
Enstrom-Byfuglien
Chiarot-Myers

Hellebuyck
Mason

Extra: Matthias, Dano, Morrow, Poolman and Hutchinson.
Injured:  Armia, Perreault.

Audio:

Jacob Trouba

Mark Scheifele

Brandon Tanev

Coach Maurice:  Trying to get greedy for another win.  What has Enstrom brought in his return?  Strength of the Nashville board play.  Status of Joel Armia?  Outside of Winnipeg is Mark Scheifele a superstar in the shadow?  How has Steve Mason handled his role?  Is there a way to measure the impact Mason has had on Hellebuyck?  On Hellebuyck staring down the camera pre-game and the intensity he approaches a game.

After a day off today the Jets are all back on the ice tomorrow.

Some players will be taking part in the first home pre-season game against the Senators while there are two skate times for the non-game groups.

We will have it all covered on https://illegalcurve.com/

Can only keep a Winnipegger away from Manitoba for so long before the pull to come home gets you.

John Lu will be back in Winnipeg and will provide excellent coverage of the Jets for TSN.

What are your initial thoughts on this hire?
