The Winnipeg Jets are back in action in Nashville tonight at 6:00 p.m. CST. Barring an unforeseen change in circumstances, the Jets are not expected to be making any lineup changes this evening— so the lines will look the same as they did in Friday night’s game. This means that Matt Hendricks will once again grace the fourth line with his, um...leadership. Yeah. Oh, and grit! Can’t forget the grit. Joel Armia will sit out with an upper-body injury. On the Nashville side, Calle Jarnkrok appears to be entering the lineup in place of Ryan Hartman. Connor Hellebuyck, fresh off an outstanding Game One performance, will face Pekka Rinne in tonight’s goaltending duel. The Jets were able to expose Rinne to the tune of four goals on 19 shots in the first game of the series (albeit one of those goals was an empty-netter). Still, it will be interesting to see how he and the rest of the Predators respond tonight.
