GDT: Calgary Flames at Winnipeg Jets; 7 PM CST

New, comments

In their final game of the preseason, the Winnipeg Jets take on the Clagary Flames at the MTS Centre.

Candice Ward-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets are going with a mostly veteran lineup, as beset by injuries as they are. Patrice Cormier, Dustin Byfuglien, and Zach Bogosian are all still injured. Adam Lowry is the only kid playing tonight, although Paul Maurice hinted that Nikolaj Ehlers, Nic Petan, and Josh Morrissey will all see a few regular season games this year.

The game will be broadcast on TSN3 tonight and can be heard on TSN 1290.

One thing to look for:

The Scheifele line in the defensive zone. As good as that line should be offensively, they could be troublesome defensively and may need more sheltering. Look for the Little line to provide the help in zone starts for the sheltering to happen. Also watch how the fourth line does if more offensive zone starts go to the Scheifele line. Galiardi is a good fourth line guy, but Peluso gets filled in defensively when asked to play that role and Slater doesn't do much better.
