The Sharks have played well in Winnipeg as of late, going 7-3 in the last trips to the city. Also, in the head-to-head match-up, the road team in this series is 7-3 in the last 10 games.

Tuesday’s match-up with the Winnipeg Jets will be stop number one of a four-game Western Canadian road trip. The Sharks enter this game with the Jets winners of two straight games, both in overtime, most recently a 3-2 extra time decision over the Coyotes on Saturday night.

All-Star defenceman Erik Karlsson remains sidelined with a lower-body injury that has kept him out of the line-up since January 26. He is travelling with the team, but his status for this game is still not known.

The team received some good news Saturday as defenceman Marc-Edouard Vlasic returned to the lineup after missing 10 games with an upper-body injury. Sticking on the subject of defenceman; Brent Burns currently leads the team in scoring with 10 goals and 47 assists. He currently leads all defenceman in that category.

The Sharks offence is blessed with talent throughout the lineup, and currently ranked third overall in goals scored per game (3.58 average). They are also second in shots on goal (34.5) and hold the league’s seventh best power-play (24.4 percent).

The penalty kill unit is ranked 10th in the league (81.9 percent), however prior to the all-star break the team surrendered seven goals in 15 opportunities. This could be a concern considering the Jets have the league’s best home power-play, and the second best power-play overall (27.6 percent)

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets are coming off a record-setting performance against the Ducks this past Saturday night. The club set a franchise-record six goals in the first period of a 9-3 blow-out win. The nine goals also set a franchise record for most goals scored in a game at home and tied the franchise record for most goals scored in a game.

Jack Roslovic netted his first career hat trick and also added an assist in the win. The 22 year-old now has seven goals for the season. Centre Bryan Little scored two goals for his 27 career multi-goal game. The team has now won seven straight home games, and hasn’t lost on home ice since December 29 (3-1 to Minnesota). They have also won 11 of their also 13 games at Bell MTS.

Now the bad news, of the nine goals scored on Saturday, zero were recorded by Patrik Laine. Laine continues to be stuck in the middle of the biggest slump of his career; however he did pick up an assist, but still looking for his first goal since January 13.

The power-play has been red hot as of late, going 3-for-4 on Saturday and are now 18-for-43 (41.8%) in their past 12 home games.  It’s the fourth time this season the Jets have scored three power play goals in a game.
