The Winnipeg Jets are in San Jose for the final game of their three-game California road trip as they take on the Sharks. The opening puck drop for tonight’s contest is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. central time.

Winnipeg will look to sweep this road trip as they are coming into tonight after beating the Ducks on Tuesday and the Kings on Thursday. Both of these games went down to the wire and were decided by one goal.

With those wins,  the Jets are currently on a four-game winning streak and a five-game point streak.

Contrary to the Jets’ success, the Sharks are heading in the wrong direction. San Jose is on a three-game losing streak and were shutout by the Canadiens by a scoreline of 4-0 in their last game, although they outshot Montreal 45-32.

The Winnipeg Jets will look to tie their season series with the San Jose Sharks with a win

The Jets and Sharks have already met once this year at the SAP Center and that game occurred two weeks ago today. San Jose beat Winnipeg 4-3 in regulation during that contest. This was the Jets’ last regulation loss before their five-game point streak started.

The Jets have played extremely well in the past week and a half, while the Sharks’ hot start has cooled off.

Projected Lineups

The Jets have kept a consistent lineup since both Blake Wheeler and Mark Schiefele have entered the NHL COVID Protocol.

Although Wheeler is back with the Jets, it is projected he will not return to the lineup for this game and may return on Tuesday night when the Jets begin their seven-game homestand at the Canada Life Centre.

With that being said, the Jets are only projected to make one change to their lineup that got the win on Thursday against the Kings.

Connor Hellebuyck is projected to come back in and start in goal tonight after Eric Comrie started two nights ago and played extremely well en route to picking up the win in his first start of the season.

Here’s how the Jets are projected to lineup:

Similar to Winnipeg, San Jose is expected to keep the same lineup as they employed in their last game.

The only expected change is in net as James Reimer is expected to start tonight after Adin Hill started on Thursday and was the losing goaltender.

Here is how the Sharks are expected to lineup:
