The Winnipeg Jets limp into Nashville to face the Predators without Dustin Byfuglien and Bryan Little. Though weak up the middle, the Jets still have a strong right side defence with Jacob Trouba and Tyler Myers there.

Paul Postma is still away training for his trip to Mars, so he is unavailable to dress for the game.

Winnipeg Jets

Andrew Ladd/Adam Lowry/Michael Frolik

Drew Stafford/Mark Scheifele/Blake Wheeler

Jiri Tlusty/Jim Slater/Lee Stempniak

Chris Thorburn/Eric O'Dell/Anthony Peluso

Tobias Enstrom/Tyler Myers

Mark Stuart/Jacob Trouba

Jay Harrison/Adam Pardy

Ondrej Pavelec

Nashville Predators

Roman Josi/Shea Weber

Seth Jones/Cody Franson

Mattias Ekholm/Ryan Ellis

Pekka Rinne (starting)

Carter Hutton

Prediction:

Eric O'Dell steals Jim Slater's jersey and makes the third line effective; Slater barely plays on the fourth line and the Jets still cannot be Rinne until Dustin Byfuglien flies down from the stands and takes on screens him for the game winning goal in overtime.

Remember that the time change is tonight and we spring forward an hour.
