The Winnipeg Jets look to put an end to the Los Angeles Kings five game winning streak tonight with a 6pm ct face off at MTS Centre.

The (30-26-7) Jets have earned five of a possible six points in their last three games and enter tonight with 67 points.  They trail Dallas by one point for a Western Conference Wild Card playoff spot.  Phoenix, who also has 67 points, lead Vancouver by one point.  The Canucks play in Dallas tonight while Phoenix hosts Montreal.

Under Paul Maurice, the Jets record is 11-3-2, which translates to a .750 winning percentage. 

Ondrej Pavelec will start in goal.

Jets Projected Lines:

Ladd-Little-Wheeler
Kane-Jokinen-Byfuglien
Setoguchi-Frolik-Halischuk
Tangradi-Slater-Peluso

Enstrom-Bogosian
Stuart-Trouba
Pardy-Ellerby

Captain Andrew Ladd has scored three goals in his last two games.

Jacob Trouba leads all rookie NHL defensemen with an average ice time of 22:04.

Winnipeg recalled forward John Albert from the AHL's St. John's IceCaps this morning on an emergency basis.

The (35-22-6) Kings are third in the Pacific Division with 76 points. 

Jonathan Quick will start in goal.

Marian Gaborik makes his Los Angeles debut after being acquired yesterday from Columbus and will wear jersey number 12.

Kings Projected Lines:

Gaborik-Kopitar-Williams
Brown-Richards-Carter
King-Stoll-Toffoli
Nolan-Lewis-Clifford

Muzzin-Doughty
Regehr-Voynov
Mitchell-Martinez

This is the second of three meetings between these teams.  Devin Setoguchi scored two goals and had an assist October 4th during the Jets home opener in a 5-3 win.  Winnipeg's lone visit to Staples Center will be March 29th.
