The Winnipeg Jets and Phoenix Coyotes duke it out for the third and final time this season on Tuesday night at the Jobing.com arena in Glendale.
The Jets will start Ondrej Pavelec, leaving Michael Hutchinson on the bench for a game that many thought he would make his first career NHL start in. Tomas Greiss will be in goal for the Coyotes at the other end.
The Jets are missing Keaton Ellerby, Zach Bogosian, Mark Scheifele, James Wright, Chris Thorburn, and Al Montoya. Zach Redmond will be in the lineup for the second straight game, after recording an assist in the clubs’ loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Monday. The Coyotes are down Mike Smith, Dave Schlemko, and Dave Moss is a game-time decision.
The Jets wrap up a five-game road trip with the match-up, and are 2-0 this season against the Coyotes.
Here is tonight’s viewing info:

My Prediction: The Jets continue their winning ways over Phoenix, and finish off the road trip with a 5-4 win. Kane scores two goals, Frolik, Little, and Peluso add one each. Pavelec makes 27 saves.
