Tonight the Winnipeg Jets will continue their seven-game road trip with game one of two versus the Vancouver Canucks. 8-6-1 is the Jets road record this year. The Jets are looking to snap their first multi-game losing streak this year, having lost their last 2 games to the Oilers. Saturday night’s loss suffered at the hands of the Edmonton Oilers marked the first time all season that Winnipeg lost sequential games.
This Canucks series provides a nice opportunity, given that the Jets’ season-high 4-game winning streak began with 2 wins against Vancouver on February 19th and 21st, before winning both matchups with the Habs to close out the month of February.
The Jets are 3-2-0 versus the Canucks this year.
Mark Scheifele sits at fifth place in scoring with 37 points. His 12 goals and 25 assist in 31 matchups this season makes him a threat to all opponents.
Tying Schiefele with his 10th multi-point contest of the season this past Saturday night, Nikolaj Ehlers is another Jet to pay close attention to.
Rookie defenceman Logan Stanley’s +8 rating has him at second place among rookies league-wide.
Kyle Connor needs 2 power-play goals to pass Andrew Ladd for ninth place in franchise history, and he can pass Dustin Byfuglien for ninth place in overall scoring by getting 2 goals of any kind.
Josh Morrissey is 2 assists shy of 100 for his National Hockey League career.
Mathieu Perreault can reach 200 assists for his NHL career with 1.
Tucker Poolman, if active for these 2 matchups, will reach 100 games for his NHL career.
GO JETS GO!
