The Winnipeg Jets are playing the Vegas Golden Knights to close out their road trip. If you dare remember their last game against the Golden Knights, the Jets are going to want to do the opposite tonight if they want to win the game. They will need to come out and play hard from the get go unlike last time when they took their sweet time getting going.
The Jets have been managing to get by without Nikolaj Ehlers, but anyone would be hard pressed to say Mason Appleton makes up for what the Jets are missing with Ehlers out. However, Ehlers was on the road trip with the team and there was the plan for him to start skating again and practicing. This is a good sign and hopefully he will return to the lineup soon. Until then they Jets will just have to keep doing what they’re doing and hope to keep above .500.
The Golden Knights have been a strong team this year which appears to be a bounce back from last year. They had an odd offseason again last year, but their new team seems to be back to their winning ways. It will be interesting to see if they will get off to the same fast start as they had last week or not.
