4 p.m. ET; PRIME, TSN3, NHL.TV
The Winnipeg Jets will try for their sixth win in seven games when they play the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Friday afternoon.
The Jets remain in second place in the Central Division behind the St. Louis Blues following their 2-1 victory at the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday. Winnipeg hasn't won in regulation in Anaheim in its past seven games, including two losses in the Western Conference First Round of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Ducks are playing the fourth of nine games in 14 days, including three sets of back-to-backs. They lost to the visiting Vegas Golden Knights 4-2 on Wednesday to end a three-game winning streak. They've been outshot 185-104 in the past four games.
Players to watch
Winnipeg center Mathieu Perreault has six points (four goals, two assists) in four games since returning from a 12-game absence because of a leg injury. Perreault played for the Ducks during the 2013-14 season.
Anaheim defenseman Josh Manson has three goals in the past four games. He had 10 in his first 198 regular-season games.
They said it
"If we lose a game, we bounce back right away. We've played a lot of good games over these 21. We've got to find a way to keep this going and get these points." -- Jets forward Nikolaj Ehlers
"We're not creating any time for our [defense] to get the puck out. They're under a lot of pressure and our forwards aren't communicating and helping them break the puck out. They don't have enough time to make plays." -- Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano on the high shots-against totals.
