The Winnipeg Jets host the Vancouver Canucks in a 7:30pm ct faceoff tonight at MTS Centre.

It's the second of three meetings between these teams this season.  Vancouver was a 2-1 winner on home ice December 22nd.

The (25-25-5) Jets are seventh in the Central Division standings with 55 points.  They trail Vancouver by eight points for a Wild Card playoff spot.

Ondrej Pavelec (16-21-4, 2.99, .901) will start in goal.

Eric O'Dell will not play tonight after spending the last two days away from the team for the birth of his baby girl.

The (27-19-19) Canucks are fourth in the Pacific Division with 63 points.

The arrival of Vancouver now means all of the 29 NHL teams have played a regular season game in Winnipeg.  Vancouver has six former members of the AHL's Manitoba Moose who will play tonight.  They are: Eddie Lack, Alexandre Burrows, Ryan Kesler, Alexander Edler, Jannik Hansen and Jordan Schroeder.
