The (36-34-9) Winnipeg Jets are in Sunrise, Florida for a 6:30pm ct face off tonight against the (37-25-17) Panthers.

TSN 1290's coverage begins with Hustler & Lawless live from Bank Atlantic Center. Rick Ralph hosts the official Jets pregame show at 5:30pm ct. Shane Hnidy joins me in the broadcast booth for the play-by-play.

Tanner Glass and Kyle Wellwood have both returned to Winnipeg after each suffering a broken foot in Carolina and Tampa, respectively.

Antti Miettinen has eight points (five goals and three assists) in his last 10 games.

Ondrej Pavelec starts in goal.

Jets Projected Lines:



A win tonight over the Jets clinches first place in the Southeast Division for first time in Panthers history.

In 11 of the last 13 games, Florida has earned at least one point in the Southeast Division standings.

Stephen Weiss is celebrating his 29th birthday today. A decade ago, Weiss made his NHL debut and scored a goal in a 4-1 win over Pittsburgh.

Tomas Fleischmann has 10 points (four goals and six assists) in his last 10 games.

Jose Theodore starts in goal.

Panthers Projected Lines:



Winnipeg has a 2-2-1 record against Florida this season. In those games, Kris Versteeg leads the Panthers with eight points (six goals and two assists). Meanwhile, in three of those games vs. Florida, Evander Kane has seven points (four goals and three assists).

The Jets will stay over following tonight's game and practice tomorrow before flying to New York in preparation for Thursday's final road game of the season against the Islanders.
