|Montreal Gazette 08 Apr 2021 at 10:14|
Here are five things you should know about the Jets-Canadiens game Thursday night at the Bell Centre (7 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN Radio-690, 98.5 FM).
The matchup: This is the third of four games this week for the Canadiens, who are coming off a 3-2 loss to the Maple Leafs Wednesday night in Toronto. It’s also the first of two contests against Winnipeg within 72 hours; the teams are meeting in Montreal again Saturday night. The Jets have been idle since Monday, when they defeated Ottawa 4-3 at home, following two home-ice losses against the Leafs — one in a shootout. This is the seventh of nine meetings between the Canadiens and Jets. The remaining three games are all in Montreal. While Winnipeg has won four of the six, three were decided in overtime.
