The Winnipeg Jets and Florida Panthers are playing their second game of the season, this time in South Florida. The Jets will be without Pierre-Luc Dubois who is dealing with something and has not been in the lineup or practicing consistently The Jets will miss him while hoping that Vladislav Namestnikov is up to being the team’s second line centre for the time being. Connor Hellebuyck is confirmed to start tonight which makes tomorrow night’s goaltending decision more intriguing.

Winnipeg is currently only in the second Wild Card spot and unless the Calgary Flames turn things around in a big way, probably only need to worry about the Nashville Predators. Best way for the Jets to ensure they’re in the playoffs is to win more games.

Remember Daylight Savings ends tonight, so set your clocks ahead one hour for tomorrow.
