NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Vegas Golden Knights at Winnipeg Jets Terrence Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden Knights suffered a disappointing 4-2 loss in Game 1 but have a chance to even the series tonight in Winnipeg (5 p.m. PT).

This is the first time Vegas has trailed in a postseason series in franchise history, but the gauntlet has been thrown by a very deep and talented Jets club that will look to take a commanding 2-0 series lead with a win tonight on home ice. So how will the Knights respond?

Gerard Gallant may make a few tweaks for tonight’s contest, as Tomas Tatar and Tomas Nosek could draw back into the lineup for Oscar Lindberg and Ryan Reaves. UPDATE: David Perron will NOT play tonight. Lineup changes are reflected below.

Here are the projected lines for both teams:

Golden Knights lineup
Jonathan Marchessault — William Karlsson — Reilly Smith
Alex Tuch — Erik Haula — James Neal
Tomas Tatar — Cody Eakin — Ryan Carpenter
Tomas Nosek — Pierre-Edouard Bellemare — Ryan Reaves

Brayden McNabb — Nate Schmidt
Shea Theodore — Deryk Engelland
Luca Sbisa — Colin Miller
