    READ THE GAME NOTES

    The Winnipeg Jets play their last of seven pre-season games tonight when they entertain the New Jersey Devils at Bell MTS Place, as Winnipeg finishes a stretch of six games in eight days...The Jets fell 4-3 to the Minnesota Wild last night at Xcel Energy Center to fall to 4-2-0 in the pre-season...Following tonight's game, the Jets will prepare for their season opener on Oct. 4 in St. Louis against the Blues.

    Top Line Clicking
    Set to play in tonight's game, the Jets top line of Blake Wheeler, Mark Scheifele and Kyle Connor has had a stellar pre-season thus far, as Wheeler has five points (2G, 3A) and Scheifele has four points (2G, 2A) in two games...Connor had an assist in his lone pre-season game...Last season, the trio combined for 77 goals and 208 points...Wheeler averaged more than a point per game with 91 points (23G, 68A) in 81 games, while Scheifele had exactly a point per game with 60 points (23G, 37A) in 60 games...Connor led all NHL rookies with 31 goals.

    Midseason Form
    Goaltender Connor Hellebuyck has picked up where he left off last season by posting a 2-0 record and .921 save percentage in his two pre-season starts...Last season he had a career best .924 save percentage in 67 games...He's turned away 70 of 76 shots in the pre-season and the Jets have been outshot 76-43 in his two starts.

    Best Pre-Season Ever?
    The Jets can match the most pre-season wins in a season in franchise history with a victory tonight...The franchise won five pre-season games in 2003 and 2005 when it was located in Atlanta...The Jets need to earn one more point to have their best pre-season record since relocation in 2011...The current best record is 4-3-0 from 2016.

    No Sympathy for the Devils
    The Jets are 10-1-2 in their last 13 regular season games against New Jersey and have won the last four meetings...Since relocating to Winnipeg in 2011, the Jets are 6-2-0 against the Devils in Winnipeg...Blake Wheeler is Winnipeg's active scoring leader against New Jersey, having tallied 13 points (6G, 7A) in 18 games as a member of the Jets franchise against the Devils.

    Against the East
    Tonight is the Jets only pre-season game against an Eastern Conference team...Winnipeg went 19-7-6 against the Eastern Conference last season, which was the second-best record by a Western Conference team against the East...Blake Wheeler led Winnipeg in scoring against the Eastern Conference last season with 37 points (10G, 27A) in 31 games.

    Road Start
    For the first time since 2015, the Jets start the regular season on the road, as they begin the 2018-19 campaign at Enterprise Center in St. Louis against the Blues on Oct. 4 and follow up with their second game in Dallas against the Stars on Oct. 6...However, Winnipeg plays the bulk of their October schedule at Bell MTS Place, as the team has seven of their first 10 games at home...The Jets have a season-high six-game homestand from Oct. 14-24.

    Finland on the Horizon
    While the Jets don't play a neutral site game during the pre-season, Winnipeg does have a pair of neutral site games on its regular season schedule, as the Jets are scheduled to play the Florida Panthers in Helsinki, Finland on Nov. 1 and 2.

    EDIT: I'll be in the phonebooth tonight and am pumped to watch KVes live (and not hear Beyak say "vAsalainen" :banghead:)... also looking forward to seeing Nico Hischier live...

    This is the make or break point for Laine's season, IMO. If he doesn't score today, I'm afraid that the guy who said he should be sent down to the AHL 9 games into his rookie season was correct.

    So. .

    CSW
    PLL

    Then we have 7 more forwards

    Vesalainen Roslovic Lemieux?
    Dano Griffith McKenzie/Harkins?

    Good catch. Obviously a mistake found it's way here. Line rushes should sort that out in a little bit.

    One would have to assume it's either one of the AHL'ers sitting, or the plan is to bump Lemieux up the line up and sit any one of Perreault, Vesalainen or Dano.

    Speculating:

    Connor Scheifele Wheeler
    Vesalainen Little Laine
    Perreault Roslovic Dano
    Lemieux/ McKenzie Harkins Griffith

    Morrissey Trouba
    Morrow Poolman
    Niku Myers

    I hope they go Niku-Myers, allows Niku to stretch his wings a bit as opposed to playing with Chiarot on his off side.

    I wonder if it's a competition between Dano and Vesalainen for the last forward spot at this point.

    Exactly what I predicted, nice!



    When trying to read too much into it: positive for Vesalainen making the team out of camp, and negative for Niku and Poolman.

    Expecting opening game to be:
    CSW
    PLL
    VRE
    CLT
    Dano/Petan

    Morrissey Trouba
    Morrow/Buff
    Kuli/Myers
    Chiarot

    Laine really hasn’t cared about scoring this pre-season, and has looked very disinterested at times. I think he has last pre-season in mind when he went on a tear there and quickly realized the points don’t carry over, and started slumping :D

    Home Page:
    Coach Maurice pre-game scrum topics: Last audition for some of the players tnt. On players rising/falling in camp. Can the players fighting for the final spots make the team tonight? Have Vesalainen and Niku played themselves into consideration for opening night? Does he give Vesalainen any additional consideration? Will tomorrow be a cut down day? How beneficial has the six games in eight days been for the team? Would he like to see this pre-season format again next year? His confidence in being able to dip down into the AHL to get players now? How good a grasp does he have in his opening night roster? When did he see the change in players from bigger to leaner?
