The fans at MTS Centre will be treated to a game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Winnipeg Jets when they take their seats on Saturday.

ABOUT THE LIGHTNING (24-24-7): Brayden Point, who recently was moved to center a line with Jonathan Drouin and Alex Killorn, scored the only goal Friday and has netted three in five games since returning from an upper-body injury that kept him out for about a month. Nikita Kucherov leads the team with 49 points and defenseman Victor Hedman is next with 42, including a club-high 35 assists. Tyler Johnson, who has registered 33 points, sat out Friday with an undisclosed injury and is questionable for Saturday, while Ondrej Palat returned after missing the previous two games.

ABOUT THE JETS (25-28-4): While others have cooled off a bit, Bryan Little continues to raise his productivity, scoring nine goals in his last 10 games to push his season total to 30 points – sixth-best on the team. Adam Lowry has notched three goals and an assist over his last three contests and Joel Armia also has collected four points in that same span. Connor Hellebuyck got the start Friday with Ondrej Pavelec (lower body) sidelined, and coach Paul Maurice told reporters after the game that the 23-year-old may vie for his second win against the Lightning this season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Jets listed as 129-moneyline favorites versus the Lightning, while the game’s total is sitting at 5½.

The Jets were a 5-2 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Blackhawks. That made winners of bettors who got Chicago at +101 on the moneyline, while the total score (7) was good news for OVER bettors.

Last time out for Tampa Bay, they were a 2-1 loser as they battled the Wild on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Wild at -167 were rewarded, while the 3 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

The Tampa Bay Lightning look to extend their point streak to four games before getting a week off when they visit the fading Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. The Lightning knocked off Anaheim and Los Angeles – both playoff-positioned teams – at home before falling 2-1 in a shootout at Western Conference-leading Minnesota on Friday to escape the basement in the East.

Ben Bishop likely will try for his third straight win after Andre Vasilevskiy turned aside 37 shots in a remarkable performance on Friday that left Tampa Bay five points out of the second wild-card spot in the jammed East. Winnipeg has followed a three-game winning streak with three consecutive losses, including a 5-2 home setback against Chicago on Friday. Leading scorers Mark Scheifele (53 points) and Nikolaj Ehlers (47) have been kept off the scoresheet during the slide as the Jets were held to a pair of goals in each defeat after scoring a total of 14 in the previous three contests. Ehlers recorded two goals and an assist as Winnipeg won 6-4 at Tampa Bay on Jan. 3, but the Jets have lost their last three home meetings with the Lightning.
