The Montreal Canadiens have been amassing wins over the past two weeks, and also seeing plenty of strong individual performances. In four of the five wins they’ve had since February 17, they’ve celebrated a player’s multi-goal performance. Every member of the top line consisting of Cole Caufield, Nick Suzuki, and Josh Anderson has accomplished the feat, and most recently Artturi Lehkonen had all of the offence in a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

The Winnipeg Jets have also been getting good contributions from their top forwards. Blake Wheeler, Kyle Connor, and Mark Scheifele bettered the point-per-game mark in the month of February. They are missing the solid play of Nikolaj Ehlers, however, as he hasn’t played since January 18 after sustaining a knee injury.

A bigger problem for the Jets is in goal with Connor Hellebuyck going through a rough patch in his season, but he gets the call tonight as head coach Dave Lowry tries to get the former Vezina Trophy-winner back to his top form.
