The (5-5-1) Winnipeg Jets begin a three-game homestand tonight at MTS Centre against the (5-7-1) Philadelphia Flyers.

Al Montoya will start his second consecutive game in goal after making 33 saves for a shutout victory on Saturday afternoon in Ottawa.

After being held off the score sheet Saturday, Toby Enstrom now shares the lead for scoring of NHL defencemen with Kevin Shattenkirk of St. Louis. Both have 13 points.

Dustin Byfuglien returns to action after missing the last five games due to a lower body injury.

Projected Jets Line Up:

Ladd-Little-Wheeler
Kane-Jokinen-Antropov
Ponikarovsky-Burmistrov-Wellwood
Wright-Slater-Thorburn

Enstrom-Byfuglien
Hainsey-Redmond
Stuart-Postma

Zach Bogosian took part in the pre-game skate, but will not play tonight. Grant Clitsome will be a healthy scratch for the first time this season.

The Flyers are coming off a 5-2 loss in Toronto last night which was the start to six straight road games for them.

They did not come to MTS Centre this morning.

Kimmo Timonen has one assist in his last three consecutive games.

Scott Hartnell, Chris Pronger, Andrej Meszaros and Michael Leighton are out for Philadelphia due to injury.
