The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Winnipeg Jets aren't playing for playoff spots on Saturday night, but they will be playing for pride.
The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Winnipeg Jets are both eliminated from playoff contention, but that doesn't mean their matchup on Saturday night is meaningless. The Lightning can even up the season series against Winnipeg, as the Jets hold the 3-2 edge so far in the season series.
In the last match up the Lightning picked up the 3-2 win over the Jets in overtime. Prior to that matchup, the Jets had won the previous three meetings against the Lightning. The Lightning are also trying to end their season with a win, instead of a three-game losing streak on Saturday night.
Game Time: 7:00 PM ET, April 7, 2012
Location: MTS Centre, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
TV: CBC, FSNFL
