They'll be without Bryan Little who is out indefinitely with a lower body injury as of the last game. But have no fear, friends! Chris Thorburn and Mark Stuart are both in tonight so the Jets are definitely going to win this one!
Also, Connor Hellebuyck is out and Michael Hutchinson is in. As a true "starting goaltender" hasn't been officially named yet, this may be part of Paul Maurice's plan to play them in alternating games but honestly the last game wasn't exactly kind to poor Connor. The Jets did walk away with the win, but he had some struggles and that is 100% okay because he is pretty much an actual child and is making a pretty big transition. That's right pals, this season I'm playing the role of Connor Hellebuyck Mega Fan. Unless he Pavelecs things up, I'm 100% Team Connor. Once again I state emphatically that if you dislike this fact: FIGHT. ME.
Where/How to Watch
The game starts at 6pm on Sportsnet1 which I have been informed is channel 187 for you lovely MTS customers. If you are not an MTS customer, my apologies. You're on your own for this one, just as I am.
