The Winnipeg Jets finish their four-game road trip tonight against the Vancouver Canucks. Puck drop is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. central time.
This is the Jets’ second straight game against the Canucks. On Friday night, the Jets shut down the Cancuks and beat them 2-0 at Rogers Arena.
The Winnipeg Jets look to finish this road trip off strong in Vancouver with a win against the Canucks.
On the Jets’ current road trip, they carry a 2-1-0 record and with a win tonight they will pick up six of a possible eight points available, which is outstanding.
After tonight, the Jets will head back to Winnipeg for a four-game homestand where they will take on the Canadiens and Canucks two times each.
The Action network lists the Jets as the underdogs in tonight’s matchup.
This is extremely surprising the Jets are the underdogs tonight. Winnipeg played extremely well in the last game between the sides and have performed better than the Canucks throughout this season.

Winnipeg Jets 10-6-1
Winnipeg fans will be extremely happy to know that Pierre-Luc Dubois is extremely close to returning to the lineup and there is a chance we could see him back in action tonight.
As Mike McIntyre reported, Dubois looks to be a game-time decision tonight and we could see him on the wing. We could see Dubois replace Nate Thompson, who returned to the lineup on Friday after a couple of weeks on the injured reserve.
Other than that, the only other projected change for the Jets is in net. Although Laurent Brossoit played outstanding on Friday and picked up the shutout, it is projected that Connor Hellebuyck will get the start tonight.
The Jets are projected to lineup like this:
Vancouver Canucks 8-12-1
If the Canucks lines at practice yesterday are any indication on how they will lineup tonight, expect Vancouver to make one lineup change and have a few new-look lines.
Zack MacEwen is projected to replace Loui Eriksson in the lineup and move to the third line. Then Antoine Roussel will move to the fourth line.
Brayden Holtby is expected to start in net after Thatcher Demko played on Friday evening.
The Canucks are expected to lineup like this:
