Despite one of their top offensive players, Mark Scheifele, missing tonight’s game with an injury, the Winnipeg Jets will still send out plenty of dangerous players versus the Montreal Canadiens. Kyle Connor, Pierre-Luc Dubois, and Nikolaj Ehlers all have at least 25 goals. Connor paces them all with 42, and an equal number of assists, leading the team in both categories.

To counter them, the Canadiens need to find goals from several sources, so the bottom three lines and the defence will need to be involved in the action. The team couldn’t muster enough offence to match the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday, seeing their rival clinch a playoff spot in that game. The Habs will try again to affect a team’s playoff aspirations this evening, with a chance to drop the Jets’ chances from extremely unlikely to practically impossible.
