The Winnipeg Jets begin a three game Atlantic division road trip against the Montreal Canadiens

NHL: Winnipeg Jets at Montreal Canadiens Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Time: 6:30 CST

TV: TSN 3

Radio: TSN 1290

Introduction:

Dustin Byfuglien is in, and Josh Morrissey is out, as the Winnipeg Jets take on the Habs at the Bell Centre in Montreal. This will be the first meeting between the two teams this season, with the rematch coming up in Winnipeg next month. The Canadiens have played well this year led by Max Domi and Jonathan Drouin. It’s great to see that Paul Maurice and some of the Jets players are trying to support and encourage Patrik Laine. Sounds like the perfect night for a Jets road win, and for Laine to break his scoring slump.
