After a complete thrashing by the Montreal Canadiens. The Winnipeg Jets are looking to rebound against a team who have had their fair share of bad luck the season. Despite getting chased out of the net last game, Connor Hellebuyck will be starting once again in net. Patrik Laine has been placed on IR this morning and the Jets then called up Julian Melchiori. Mark Stuart will slot in tonight for the first time since November 29th. He will be slotting in for Ben Chiarot, who did not travel with the team and is reportedly day-to-day with an upper body injury.
Alexander Burmistrov finally touched down in Arizona and skated with the team but won't be playing tonight against his former team. The Coyotes are starting back up after a five day break. They currently sit just below the Jets in the Western conference standings. Martin Hanzal will return to the lineup tonight after missing the last game with an upper body injury.
