It's finally here.
The 2013 NHL season opens for the Winnipeg Jets Saturday at MTS Centre against the Ottawa Senators.
TSN 1290's coverage begins with the Illegal Curve Hockey Show at 7:00.  Hustler & Lawless is follows at 11:00 live from Boston Pizza City Place.  Rick Ralph hosts the official Jets pregame show at 1:00.  Dennis Beyak, Shane Hnidy and I will have the play-by-play at 2:00.
Ondrej Pavelec, who won 29 games for the Jets during their inaugural season last year, will get the start in goal.
Below are the expected Jets lines:

Newly acquired forwards Anthony Peluso and James Wright are not expected to play.  Antti Miettinen has an upper body injury and no timeline has been set for his return. 
Defenceman Zach Redmond is the lone addition blue liner remaining in camp.  Zach Bogosian is suffering from a wrist injury.  Head coach Claude Noel told TSN 1290 he hopes for Bogosian to play sometime in February.
Three numerical updates for Jets players.  Peluso is #14, Wright will wear #17 and Redmond chose #25 instead of #59 he wore during this past week's training camp.
The Senators come into Winnipeg with many familiar faces that earned them a birth in the Stanley Cup playoffs last April.
Ottawa won three of four games against the Jets last season, including both at MTS Centre, by a score of 6-4.
Head coach Paul MacLean confirmed Craig Anderson, who's coming off a 33-win season, will start in goal and be backed up by Robin Lehner.  Ottawa has three goaltenders on their roster, with Ben Bishop being the odd man out for Game 1.
Below are the expected Ottawa lines:


Following the first of 48 games, the Jets will travel to Boston and Washington for games Monday and Tuesday before returning to MTS Centre to host Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and the rest of the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday, January 25.
