Game #9: Jets @ Flyers

Winnipeg Jets (2-5-1) @ Philadelphia Flyers (5-3-1)
Thursday, October 27, 2011
Wells Fargo Center 6:00 PM CT
Radio: TSN 1290 (Winnipeg)

The Winnipeg Jets open up a seven game road trip Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Jets will play seven games in thirteen days before returning home for a November 10th home game against the Florida Panthers.

Their hosts are fresh off a 5-1 drubbing at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens last night and will be looking to bounce back after a subpar performance.

The Flyers are still without captain Chris Pronger for the game tonight. However, they will still have the likes of Claude Giroux, Jaromir Jagr, and others in the lineup tonight.

According to the Winnipeg Free Press, injured winger Eric Fehr will be with the team on the trip, though he is still at least a month from returning to full time action. Also, defenseman Ron Hainsey has been put on the injured reserve citing an upper-body injury as the source of that move. (Winnipeg Free Press, 10/27/11)

Chris Mason did start the game against the New York Rangers on Monday, but as to this morning, there has not been any word on who will be in between the pipes tonight for the Jets.

Jim Slater will be back in the lineup after taking a nasty hit during last Saturday's game against Carolina.

Game time is 6 PM and is available on TSN-Jets.
