3 p.m. ET; TSN3, FS-W, NHL.TV
The Winnipeg Jets will try for their third straight home win when they host the Anaheim Ducks at Bell MTS Place on Sunday.
The Jets are 11-3-2 in their past 16 games and 5-1-1 in their past seven at home.
Goalie Connor Hellebuyck, who made 24 saves in a 3-0 shutout against the Ducks on Nov. 29 and is 6-1-1 with a 2.21 goals-against average, .923 save percentage and two shutouts in eight games against Anaheim, is expected to start for the Jets.
The Ducks are winless in four straight on the road (0-2-2) and begin a two-game road trip Sunday. Anaheim is 2-4-2 in its past eight games and is coming off a 3-2 loss at home to the Washington Capitals on Friday. Goalie John Gibson will start after missing two games because of illness.
This will be the third and final meeting of the regular season between the Jets and Ducks; each team has won one game. The Ducks defeated the Jets 7-4 at Honda Center on Oct. 27.

Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf has 11 points (three goals, 8 assists) in his past nine games and leads Anaheim with 13 assists and 23 points in 29 games.

They said it
"I think they're very dangerous offensively with a couple of lines. I think they've done a [heck] of a job with their defense there. It looks like they just get it done by committee. And obviously [Connor] Hellebuyck in net; if you don't get to him early it may be a long night for you." -- Ducks coach Dallas Eakins on the Jets
"When we were in Anaheim [on Nov. 29], we did a real good job. We didn't really let those guys get to the net. We were fast in transition and used our speed to our advantage. I think that's going to be important when we try to do that again [Sunday]." -- Jets forward Adam Lowry
