The Winnipeg Jets (26-25-6) host the New York Islanders (23-24-8) in a 7:30pm ct face off tonight at MTS Centre.

TSN 1290's coverage begins with Hustler & Lawless live from the Exchange Restaurant at 4pm ct. Rick Ralph hosts the official Jets pre-game show at 6:30pm ct. Shane Hnidy joins me in the broadcast booth for the play-by-play.

Ondrej Pavelec starts his fifth consecutive game in goal for the Jets.

Tonight is Blake Wheeler's 300th NHL game.

Dustin Byfuglien is on a two-game point streak (two goals and two assists).

Projected Jets Lines:



The Jets are 1-0-1 against the Islanders this season, outscoring them 5-3 in those two games. Winnipeg has not had a power play against the Isles this season.

Evgeni Nabokov starts his fifth consecutive game in goal for New York.

Projected Islanders Lines:



John Tavares has one assist in his last six games.

St. Malo, Manitoba product Travis Hamonic did not travel with the team to his home province due to an upper body injury. Hamonic has missed the last four games.

The Islanders have the second best road power play in the NHL at 23.9%.
