The Winnipeg Jets won the first game of the season against the Minnesota Wild and it was a win so nice they will try to beat the same team again tomorrow. The Jets should get full marks for their win and it seems like neither team will be changing much about their lineups. Both teams will be playing their backup goalie. The Wild’s Marc-Andre Fleury will be playing in his 1000th game after he played in the third period yesterday afternoon to ensure he played his 1000th game at home.

The Wild will be without Kirill Kaprizov after a cross-checking incident with Brenden Dillon yesterday. The Jets should be running the same lineup sans Connor Hellebuyck who will get the afternoon off in exchange for Laurent Brossoit getting the start.
