The (21-19-5) Winnipeg Jets are in New Jersey for their final regular season game against the (25-17-2) Devils.

TSN 1290's coverage begins with Hustler & Lawless at 3:00.  Rick Ralph hosts the official Jets pregame show at 5:00.  Color Analyst Shane Hnidy joins me in the broadcast booth for the play-by-play at 6:00.

The Jets are coming off a 2-0 win in Ottawa last night, and head coach Claude Noel confirmed to TSN 1290 this afternoon he will start Chris Mason in goal.  Mason made 25 saves last night for his second shutout of the season.  It's the first time this season he will start back-to-back games.  Mason has been perfect in two of his last three starts.

Winnipeg will also dress the same roster as last night.

Kane-Little-Burmistrov
Ladd-Antropov-Wellwood
Glass-Slater-Thorburn
Miettinen-Stapleton-Fehr

Enstrom-Hainsey
Stuart-Jones
Oduya-Flood

The Devils have not played since Saturday's 2-1 victory in Winnipeg.

Martin Brodeur will start his second consecutive game after making 22 saves.

Head coach Peter DeBoer confirmed this morning All-Star forward Adam Henrique will not play tonight due to a groin injury.

In DeBoer's words, Winnipeg-born Travis Zajac "has been shut down" for the next two weeks to allow him time to continue to heal.  Zajac has played just eight games this season.

New Jersey recalled forwards Jacob Josefson and Brad Mills from their American Hockey League affiliate in Albany.   Josefson, who had one assist in five games for the Devils to start the season, will wear #16.  Mills, had one assist in 21 games to start the NHL season,  will wear #11.

Devils roster for tonight:

Parise-Zubrus-Kovalchuk
Sykora-Elias-Clarkson
Carter-Josefson-Tedenby
Boulton-Zalewski-Mills

Tallinder-Fayne
Salvador-Larrson
Volchenkov-Foster

The Jets are 1-1-1 against the Devils so far this season.
