The Winnipeg Jets and the Calgary Flames meet tonight in a later than usual game, as this one gets underway at 9 pm CST, which is a not-that-early 8 pm in Calgary.

Connor Hellebuyck guards the net for Winnipeg, with David Rittich serving as his counterpart tonight. Rittich has put up some very good numbers (7-1-0, .931 save percentage, 1.93 goals against average) for the Flames this year, and usurped Mike Smith as the team’s starting goalie.

The Flames are coming off of a 7-2 stomping of the Vegas Golden Knights, while Winnipeg most recently played and beat the Vancouver Canucks by a 6-3 score.
