Time: 7:00 PM CST

The Winnipeg Jets kick off their second round series tonight at 7:00 PM CST on CBC. The Jets are finally icing a near-healthy defensive corps and the forwards are all present with the exception of Mathieu Perreault. Outside of two injuries this is the best the Jets can trot out against the Predators and they should expect the same from the Preds. Both teams will be playing their starting goalies: Pekka Rinne for the Preds and Connor Hellebuyck for the Jets; both goalies are also Vezina Trophy finalists.
