The Winnipeg Jets take on the former Winnipeg Jets

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

The Winnipeg Jets take on the former Winnipeg Jets Arizona Coyotes tonight in Winnipeg, having lost six of their last seven games (ouch). Luckily, the Coyotes aren't all that great either.

After tinkering with his lineup in the last couple of games, it appears that the Jets will once again go with the same lines as they did last game, namely Thorburn-Burmistrov-Ehlers and Copp-Lowry-Peluso.

Finally, in injury news, it appears as though Blake Wheeler will be in the lineup tonight despite taking a puck to the face yesterday.  For the Coyotes, it will be a game-time decision, but it looks as though Anders Lindback will get the start due to a Mike Smith "lower body" injury.
