The Winnipeg Jets and San Jose Sharks conclude a three-game regular season series with a 9:30ct face off tonight at SAP Center.

The first two games have been split.  Winnipeg were 5-4 winners on home ice, while the Sharks earned a 1-0 win here in January.

The Jets (32-32-9) have 73 points and trail Phoenix by nine points for a Western Conference Wild Card playoff spot.

Al Montoya will start his sixth straight game in goal.

Kane-O'Dell-Halischuk

Head coach Paul Maurice will not play forward Devin Setoguchi.  He is a "coaches decision" to sit in the stands, according to Maurice.

Antti Niemi will start in goal.
