It's been 162 days since the Winnipeg Jets played a meaningful game inside MTS Centre, and now following Tuesday's 5-4 win in Edmonton, the Jets return home to play the Los Angeles Kings.

Paul Edmonds will join me on TSN 1290 for the radio broadcast, while Dennis Beyak, Shane Hnidy and Sara Orlesky will have the game on TSN Jets.  Face off is set for 7:15 due to opening night festivities.

Ondrej Pavelec will start his 2nd straight game in goal after making 34 saves against the Oilers.

Jets Projected Lines:

Ladd-Little-Wheeler
Kane-Scheifele-Setoguchi
Tangradi-Jokinen-Frolik
Wright-Slater-Thorburn

Enstrom-Byfuglien
Bogosian-Trouba
Stuart-Postma

Lifetime vs the Kings, Evander Kane has 3 goals and 1 assist in 3 games while Blake Wheeler has 6 points (2 goals & 3 assists) in 6 games.

Defenseman Grant Clitsome is the lone Jet on the Injured Reserve List.

The Kings are coming off a 3-2 shoot out win in St. Paul, Minnesota last night.  Jeff Carter tied the game in the 3rd period and also scored the shoot out winner. 
Jonathan Quick will start in goal after making 27 saves.

Head Coach Darryl Sutter confirmed this morning he will dress the same players as last night.

Kings Projected Lines:

King-Kopitar-Williams
Frattin-Richards-Carter
Brown-Stoll-Lewis
Clifford-Fraser-Nolan

Regehr-Doughty

Lifetime against Atlanta/Winnipeg, Anze Kopitar has 5 points (2 goals & 3 assists) in 5 games, Jeff Carter has 21 points, including 11 goals in 25 games, while Justin Williams 14 goals & 17 assists in 38 games.

The last and only time the Kings previously played against the Jets was December 27, 2011 here at MTS Centre when Evander Kane scored the overtime winner in a 1-0 win.  The Kings return to Winnipeg March 6th, while the Jets close out the 3 game regular season series March 29th in Los Angeles.

Following tonight's game, the Jets host Teemu Selanne and the Anaheim Ducks Sunday night, 7:00 at MTS Centre (TSN 1290, TSN Jets).
