  • The Jets are 4-1 since head coach Claude Noel was fired and replaced by Paul Maurice. Their only loss was Thursday in San Jose, where they lost by a slim 1-0 margin to the Sharks.
  • The Leafs had their own win streak (a six-gamer) snapped on Thursday when they were thumped 7-1 by the Dallas Stars. The loss was inevitable because the Leafs were pretty lucky to have the streak last that long. They’ll be looking for a bounce-back game in Winnipeg.
  • Reimer will get the start in his home province of Manitoba. The 25-year-old goaltender grew up about two hours north of Winnipeg in Morweena. Reimer replaced Bernier in net during the loss Thursday, but didn’t fare much better than his teammate. He was fantastic in his last start against the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday, stopping 35 shots.
  • Jets netminder Pavelec is having a poor season, but has played very well in his last two starts. The battle between these two goalies should be very interesting to watch.
