The Winnipeg Jets will play their final game of the season out east tonight as they head to Wells Fargo Center to face Shayne Gostisbehere and the Philadelphia Flyers. 

They'll look to rebound after a disappointing 3-2 loss to the Buffalo Sabres Saturday night. The Jets allowed three unanswered goals after leading 2-0. 

“We know we didn’t bring it in the third, especially when you give up a lead like that,” said Scheifele. “It’s going to be a tough test against Philly, and hopefully we can make it a good one.”
