After a 4-3 shootout loss to the Minnesota Wild last night, the Leafs are back again facing the Winnipeg Jets this evening.
Toronto is entering tonight’s game without a regulation loss since November 20th vs. Pittsburgh at Scotiabank Arena. Winnipeg is coming into the game with six losses in their last eight games. However, they haven’t played since Friday, so expect them to be ready to go.
The Jets also haven’t had the best start to their season, but they also haven’t had the worst start. Just over a quarter way into the season, Winnipeg is a middle of the pack team in the Central Division with the same amount of points as Colorado and Dallas.
Only one player on the Jets is producing over a point-per-game this season, and that’s Kyle Connor. The 24-year-old has 25 points (14G, 11A) in 23 games.
Connor Hellebuyck is expected to be the starter to Winnipeg. In 18 games this year, he has eight wins and a .916 save percentage.
The Leafs projected lineup
Toronto’s lines will likely be similar to last night’s game in Minnesota.
