GDT: Les Jets de Winnipeg aux Canadiens de Montréal

New, comments

Tonight in Montreal, the Winnipeg Jets will play the Montreal Canadiens at 7:30 PM CST.

USA TODAY Sports

On Remembrance Day, the Winnipeg Jets are in Montreal to play the Montreal Canadiens in the first of two matches between the two squads. The Jets are coming in hot, winning an whole bunch of games in a row. The Habs are coming in after finally getting off the shnied, but they are still struggling possession and scoring chance wise.

The Habs power play has been sputtering along putridly, while their penalty kill has been excellent, producing three(!!) 2 on 0's already this season. Look for the Little line to match up against the Plekanec line and Scheifele to take on Desharnais' line. If previous patterns hold true, this means that Mark Stuart and Jacob Trouba will be matched against the Desharnais line and Tobias Enstrom and Zach Bogosian will be matched against Plekanec.

Game is on TSN3 or RDS if you happen to be in Quebec/Ottawa/East Coast this week.

Who to Watch

Mark Stuart will most likely be hard matched against either Max Pacioretty or Alex Galchenyuk. Both forwards are strong and can move around the ice well. They are also skilled. This is a deadly combination against Stuart and could lead to some massive cringing episodes for Jets fans. You've been warned.

Who to Boo

Why did I agree to do the GDT for this game? Boo no one.

Prediction

Seriously, why did I agree to do the GDT for this game? Wait, we can all agree that Derek will complain about the refs at least twice during the game. That is my prediction; Derek complains about the refs.
