The Winnipeg Jets are looking to take a stranglehold on this series with a win tonight against the Nashville Predators. After a terrible start last game, the Jets were able to step up and comeback after being down 3-0. This was in part to the fact that Pekka Rinne is really struggling when the game is not 5 on 5. Yes, Connor Hellebuyck is struggling as well, but the Jets have been able to cover for him up until now.
The Jets have the good fortune of getting Mathieu Perreault back in the lineup. This is a huge boost that gives the Jets a third scoring line. Now they can shift back to their highly successful format of a top nine and a bottom three. Expect Matt Hendricks to be taken out of the lineup. Outside of this change, there are no other lineup changes expected to be made.
Dmitry Kulikov has started skating again, as has Joel Armia in no-contact jerseys.
