Jets TV Road Report
The Jets head to Ontario for back to back games against the Leafs and Senators
IN THE CAPITAL CITY

The Winnipeg Jets were quick to board their charter destined for Ottawa after dropping a 4-3 shootout decision in Toronto late Wednesday night.

Thankfully the flight was only an hour as the eye of the storm that loomed in Toronto seemed to follow us all the way to Ottawa.

The team landed late and were eager to hit the pillow to get as much rest as possible before getting up and doing it all over again against the Senators-but this time leaving with both points.

Jets lineup will look almost identical to the Leafs game with Ondrej Pavelec getting his third straight start in net for the Jets as they continue to search for their first road-win this season.

“Pavelec will play,” head coach Claude Noel told media at practice. “It’ll help him get in a rhythm. We haven’t played enough games, and he’s been good the last couple games.”

The only possible change is that Jim Slater is battling the flu that may take him out of the lineup. He will be a game-time decision and if he is unable to go, Randy Jones or Tim Stapleton will get the go-ahead to play. If that is the case, coach  Noel may have a little bit of line shuffling to do come game time.

Mark Scheifele who scored his first ever goal last night is expected to be put to the test tonight to show how he can keep up with the pace of playing two games in two nights.

“This will be good for him tonight,” Noel said. “We’ll see a little bit more from him and his line tonight, so it should be interesting to see if he can play back-to-back hard games.”

The Senators are 1-5 so far this season and have dropped their last three games, with the most recent being a 7-2 loss against the Philadelphia Flyers. They have been outscored 30-16 in those six games. Their only win has come in a shootout against the Minnesota Wild. The two teams will battle it out in the Nation's Capital for their second win of the season.


Sergei Gonchar vs. Colorado Avalanche in Scotiabank Place.
Craig Anderson is expected to get the start for the Senators tonight and a players Sergei Gonchar and forward Jesse Winchester have been given the thumbs up to return to the lineup. Gonchar missed one game with a bruised foot while Winchester has yet to play a game this season.

The team will jump back on their plane tonight immediately following the game and head home to Winnipeg get ready to host the Carolina Hurricanes at the MTS Centre Saturday night. Game time is 6:00 pm on CBC-Hockey Night in Canada.
