Jets v Stars - Trouba’s Back!

New, comments

I’m so happy.

Tonight’s US Election Day game between the Jets and Stars just got a whole lot more exciting. The possible return of defenseman Jacob Trouba means a lot for these beat up Jets, and is a good showing of “draft and develop” in progress.

With Friday’s euphoric win and Sunday’s predictable fall back to earth, the Jets continue to inspire hope while simultaneously being the same old Jets we know and love. Tonight’s game is expected to be one of these options.

Lineups:

Dallas Stars:

Jamie Benn - Tyler Seguin - Patrick Eaves

Antoine Roussel - Radek Faksa - Jason Spezza

Lauri Korpikoski - Devin Shore - Brett Ritchie

Curtis McKenzie - Gemel Smith - Adam Cracknell

Esa Lindell - John Klingberg

Johnny Oduya - Stephen Johns

Dan Hamhuis - Jordie Benn

Antti Niemi

Kari Lehtonen

Winnipeg Jets:

Patrik Laine - Mark Scheifele - Nikolaj Ehlers

Kyle Connor - Nic Petan - Blake Wheeler

Andrew Copp - Adam Lowry - Brandon Tanev

Marko Dano - Alexander Burmistrov - Chris Thorburn

Josh Morrissey - Dustin Byfuglien

Tobias Enstrom - Tyler Myers (?)

Ben Chiarot - Paul Postma

Connor Hellebuyck

Michael Hutchinson

Where to Watch:

7:00 CT on TSN3

Radio broadcast on TSN 1290

Who Do We Hate Tonight?:

This one is always so obvious. Tyler Seguin. The Jet killer. More importantly though is Antoine Roussel for his slewfoot on Dustin Byfuglien in their last meeting.

What are your expectations for tonight’s game? Excited for Trouba’s (possible) return? Is Roussel a scumbag? Let us know down in the comments!
