Game #55 – Hawks vs. Jets: Lineups & How They Were Built

Hawks

Notes: They were making noise like Boqvist could make the bell tonight, but our guess is he sits this one out to get an extra day before the rest of the trip. That means Seeler would make his debut which makes this defense somehow even slower, if you can believe it. If that’s how it shakes out, expect Keith and Murphy to play 25 minutes…otherwise would expect the lineup to stay the same. There may be more breaking up of Dach, Saad, and Kane, because they’ve been woeful defensively…

Jets

Notes: The Jets are beat up, especially on the bottom six, with Lowry and Perreault out. It’s moved Copp to center…Laine is on a heater again, with six goals in his last five and a hat trick against the Sens last out. We still think he’s a passenger though. Hellebuyck didn’t play yesterday and they got a rare win from their backup so he’ll go tonight. He’s been brilliant of late as out of the 113 shots he’s seen in his last three starts he’s stopped 107…
