The Winnipeg Jets look to get themselves back in the Central Division playoff race as they host the Nashville Predators.

The 7th place Jets trail the 5th place Predators by four points.  Nashville has two games in hand on Winnipeg.

Nashville has a 2-0 record against Winnipeg this season, outscoring the Jets 6-3.  Patric Hornqvist leads the Predators with two goals in those games, while goaltender Carter Hutton has both wins.  The Jets are 0-7 on the power play against Nashville.

Ondrej Pavelec (4-7-2, 3.09, .902) returns to the crease after watching Al Montoya start back-to-back games.

Evander Kane returns to the ice after not playing the last two games.

Jets Projected Lines:



Devin Setoguchi is the lone Jet to have points in back-to-back games, one goal and two assists.

Blake Wheeler has four goals in six games lifetime against Nashville.

Not playing tonight due to injury are Paul Postma, Mark Stuart, Jacob Trouba and Jim Slater.

Nashville is coming off a 6-4 win in Denver over the Colorado Avalanche.  Colin Wilson led the Predators with two goals and two assists. 

This is the 4th of a seven game, 17 day road trip.

The Predators have earned seven of a possible 10 points in their last five games.

Thunder Bay, Ontario native Carter Hutton (4-1-1, 2.94, .908) starts his 6th straight game in goal due to the injury to Pekka Rinne. 

Predators Projected Lines:



Mattias Ekholm is on a four-game point streak (four assists), while David Legward is on a three-game point streak (three goals and four assists).

The Predators have the 4th ranked power play in the NHL at 24 per cent.
