The Southeast Division-leading Winnipeg Jets (15-11-2) are in the Nation's Capital for a 4pm ct face off against the (14-8-6) Ottawa Senators.

JP Vigier joins me on TSN 1290 for the radio broadcast, while Dennis Beyak and Shane Hnidy will have the call on TSN Jets.

The Jets are coming off a 5-4 shootout win in Toronto last night, while the Senators won 4-3 in overtime in Buffalo.

The Jets did not have a pregame skate this morning, so today's line-up will not be known until the players take to the ice for warm-up.

Due to injury, the following players will not be options for either coach today.

Winnipeg: Peluso, Slater, Redmond, Enstrom, Montoya

Ottawa: Michalek, Spezza, Dziurzynski, Karlsson, Anderson

During last night's win, Nik Antropov extended his point steak to five games, while Dustin Byfuglien, Blake Wheeler, Kyle Wellwood and Andrew Ladd all now have points in three consecutive games.

Sergei Gonchar has points in six straight games while Kyle Turris is on a three-game point streak for the Sens.

Ottawa has outscored Winnipeg 5-1 in the first two games of the regular season series, despite the fact each team has one win. The Jets' victory was here in Ottawa on Feb. 9 when Al Montoya had the perfect game in a 1-0 win.

Following today's game, the Jets return to Winnipeg for a four-game homestand starting Tuesday night against Boston (7pm ct on TSN 1290 / TSN Jets).
