Winnipeg Jets Vs. Montreal Canadiens
To say this is the biggest game of the year for Winnipeg is an understatement. They need to win this one, because falling behind 0-3 will be a tough hole to climb out of.
For the Jets, the best option would be to go with a winger-winger stack of Kyle Connor and Blake Wheeler. Paul Stastny is still a game-time decision, and Pierre-Luc Dubois has forgotten how to score goals. If Stastny does play, then you can stack the entire line, but it’s a risky play considering just how terrible Winnipeg’s offence was in game two.
As always, Neal Pionk is the only Jets defenceman I’m willing to consider. He hasn’t been blocking many shots of late, but he still has the upside to be able to do it.
