The Winnipeg Jets and Montreal Canadiens are going at it again tonight. It was hard to find an updated lineup, so all lineups are educated guesses and wishful thinking on my part. That said, both teams are going to have different lineups due to injuries and suspensions. Dylan DeMelo is out at least a week with an injury and Mark Scheifele is out for four games with a suspension.

I mentioned yesterday that a suspension should help keep the series under control. Today, Shea Weber said that the hit is done and they are no longer talking about it because the Habs have a guy not playing and the Jets have a guy not playing. That is part of what suspending a player can do: it can allow for the temperature to go down on a series and for hockey to remain the focus.
