GDT: Jets-Kings

New, comments

The Winnipeg Jets take on the Los Angeles Kings on the road.

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets visit Los Angeles tonight to take on the Kings. Both the Jets and the Kings lost their last games, with the Kings coming off a loss at the hands of the New York Rangers and the Jets losing to the Arizona Coyotes.

On a more positive note, though, the Winnipeg Jets are expected to get some reinforcements back in the lineup tonight.  After Zach Bogosian returned to the lineup last game, Tobias Enstrom, Evander Kane, and Mark Stuart are all expected to return to the Jets' lineup tonight.  And the timing couldn't be better, as it has appeared lately that the Jets' injuries have caught up with them and the Jets' on-ice performance has begun to slip.  Adam Pardy and Paul Postma will be leaving the lineup to make room on defense, while it looks like TJ Galiardi will be the odd man out up front.

Michael Hutchinson gets the start for the Jets tonight.  The Kings look like they'll counter with Jonathan Quick.
