3 p.m. ET; TSN3, MSG+, NHL.TV
The Winnipeg Jets will try for their fourth straight win when they play the New Jersey Devils at Bell MTS Place on Saturday.
The Jets are 8-1-3 in their past 12 games and coming off a 3-2 shootout win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday. Much of their success this season can be attributed to goaltender Connor Hellebuyck, who is expected to start Saturday and is 10-1-2 with a 2.29 goals-against average and .930 save percentage. He has allowed two goals or fewer in 10 of his 13 starts.
The Devils have lost five of seven games (2-2-3) and will look to rebound from a 1-0 overtime loss at the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday. They have gotten at least a point in eight of nine road games this season (6-1-2).
Players to watch
Devils forward Taylor Hall has 10 points (five goals, five assists) in his past 10 games.
Jets forward Patrik Laine has eight points (five goals, three assists) in a seven-game point streak.

"We're getting offense. We're getting great goaltending. Whoever's in the net, we have confidence in them right now. We're playing better defensively. Our [penalty kill] looked great (on Thursday), a ton of huge blocked shots. Things are clicking right now." -- Jets forward Bryan Little
