This is going to be really short and sweet. Jansen Harkins is going to be playing and Joona Luoto is going to sit. Outside of that there are no changes and the Jets are looking at bouncing back from another tough game.

The Jets are ahead of the Minnesota Wild in the standings, but as we have learned recently this does not matter when it comes to the Jets. They have been getting uneven results lately with more losses against teams at the bottom of the standings than they should be comfortable with.

The Jets will be playing playing the Wild’s backup goalie Alex Stalock and starting Connor Hellebuyck. He will most likely be busy in net, especially in the first period when the Jets are typically slow to start games. They will be looking at changing that this afternoon when they play.

As for Jansen Harkins, the Manitoba Moose forward will most likely be on the fourth line at least to start. Because of this, don’t expect too much of him offensively and instead watch to see if he is getting to loose pucks and contributing in the best way someone can in that role.
