Can the Jets manage their fatigue in Vegas?

EDIT: Because of life, just keep the discussion going here

The Vegas Golden Knights are reeling from blowing a 4-2 lead to the Montreal Canadiens to lose 5-4 in overtime in their previous game. The Winnipeg Jets are escaping Oakland with an undeserved unless your name is Connor Hellebuyck win. All of that aside, the Jets will be tired because they travelled the night before and could not leave from San Jose. They will also be able to improve their lineup by adding Carl Dahlstrom and removing one of Luca Sbisa or Anthony Bitetto.

The Jets are going to be playing a Golden Knights team that will want to redeem itself after losing to the Habs. They have a strong team on paper with a defence that oddly works when it should not. They might be going through some goalie issues with Marc-Andre Fleury missing from practice yesterday and while it was said to be a maintenance day, the Golden Knights recalled Garrett Sparks yesterday so something is brewing.

On a non-hockey note, for all our readers in Manitoba: this is our last time change. We are going the way of Saskatchewan and scraping Daylight Savings Time. While I took some shots at Saskatchewan last weekend, they were 1000% right when they made this change and I am glad Manitoba joined them in this endeavour to end time changes. No more falling back or springing forward for life!
