The Golden Knights will host the Jets for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals tonight at T-Mobile Arena. The Knights have a chance to take their first lead of the series after regaining home-ice advantage with a 3-1 win in Game 2.
David Perron will miss his second straight game with an illness, which means Tomas Tatar and Tomas Nosek will remain in the lineup.
Malcolm Subban is day-to-day, so Maxime Lagace will serve as Marc-Andre Fleury’s backup.
UPDATE: Winnipeg’s Nikolaj Ehlers will miss tonight’s game. Brandon Tanev is set to skate on the second line with Paul Stastny and Patrik Laine. Jack Roslovic will re-join the lineup for the first time since May 1.
Here are the projected lineups 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
Winnipeg Jets lineup
Kyle Connor — Mark Scheifele — Blake Wheeler
Brandon Tanev — Paul Stastny — Patrik Laine
Mathieu Perreault — Bryan Little — Jack Roslovic
