It feels like we should what Chevedayoff has been cooking between tomorrow and Friday. We will have articles about the trades when they happen. Right now the Jets need to be focused on winning their third straight game tonight against the Seattle Kraken.
The Jets are looking for a third straight win, and sixth win in seven games. The Jets are 5-1-0 against Seattle the only loss to the Kraken happened in Seattle.
The Kraken are not having a great season and are on the outside looking into the playoff picture. In their last five they are 3-2-0 and have 13 goals for. They are coming off a big win over the Calgary Flames last night and are looking to get a little closer to the final wild card playoff spot. They are seven points back of the Nashville Predators  and have a game in hand over them for the final wild card spot.
Joey Daccord makes the start for the Kraken tonight after Grubauer made 35 saves against the Flames. The 27-year-old goaltender is 16-12-10 this season with an impressive 2.45 goals against average and a .919 save percentage.
Connor Hellebuyck should be between the pipes tonight for Jets, the leader in Vezina trophy odds is 29-12-3 this season has a 2.25 goals against average and a .924 save percentage, for the Hellebuyck haters out there those are the best stats in the NHL currently.


Head Coach Rick Bowness would talk about the previous Seattle Kraken games the Jets played last year and is expecting a low event game. Let’s bet the under friends.
No Gabriel Vilardi tonight he is injured but will travel with the team out to Seattle on Friday according to Rick Bowness. Nate Schmidt will be out due to an illness that is going through the Jets locker-room. Bowness would say that Schmidt was “Battling it” in Buffalo and will take the next few days to recover. Mr. 6’7 Logan Stanley will getting to another game tonight.
Alex Wennberg is sitting tonight’s game out for trade related reasons, Vince Dunn is also questionable for tonight’s game as he took a hit from behind from Martin Pospilsil in the third period against the Flames.
