GDT: Winnipeg Jets vs Tampa Bay Lightning

New, comments

Second game this season between potential Stanley Cup finalists

NHL: Tampa Bay Lightning at Winnipeg Jets Terrence Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Time: 6:30 CST

TV: TSN 3

Radio: TSN 1290

Introduction:

The last time these two teams met in December at Bell MTS Centre Mark Scheifele scored the overtime winner for the Jets. Round two of this potential Stanley Cup finals preview goes tonight at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay. Connor Hellebuyck starts in goal. Bryan Little missed the morning skate but is playing tonight. There is very little room for error when playing a team as talented as the Lightning. Therefore, the Jets have to play a disciplined, patient, fast, playoff style game if they hope to leave the sunshine state with a victory.

Random Prediction:

Nikolaj Ehlers scores a highlight reel type goal tonight
