The Winnipeg Jets host the Columbus Blue Jackets this evening in a 6:00ct face off at MTS Centre.

This is the second and final game between these two teams this season.  Evander Kane scored the game-winning goal and Al Montoya made 22 saves as Winnipeg were 3-2 winners in Columbus December 16.

The (19-22-5) Jets are seventh in the Central Division with 43 points.  They trail Minnesota by 10 points for a Wild Card playoff spot.

Ondrej Pavelec (11-18-4, 3.06, .901) will start in goal.  Against Columbus in his career, Pavelec has a 0-4 record.

Jets Projected Lines:

Ladd-Little-Byfuglien
O'Dell-Scheifele-Frolik
Setoguchi-Jokinen-Wheeler
Tangradi-Wright-Thorburn

Bogosian-Enstrom
Stuart-Trouba
Pardy-Ellerby

With the move of Dustin Byfuglien to forward, the Jets added defenceman Zach Redmond Friday night from the AHL's St. John's IceCaps for insurance.

Columbus played at home last night and shut out Carolina 3-0, then flew into Winnipeg following the game.  They have won three of their last four games.

The Blue Jackets did not have a pregame skate this morning.

The (20-20-4) Blue Jackets are seventh in the Metropolitan Division with 44 points.   They trail Detroit by four points for a Wild Card playoff spot.

Last night's lines at home against the Hurricanes were:

Foligno-Johansen-Umberger
Jenner-Anisimov-Horton
Calvert-Dubinsky-Atkinson
Craig-Letestu-Tropp

Johnson-Tyutin
Wisniewski-Murray
Nikitin-Savard

With the Blue Jackets now playing a regular season game tonight, the Vancouver Canucks are the last remaining team who has yet to play a regular season game at MTS Centre.
