Rookie Michael Hutchinson will make a third straight start tonight when his Winnipeg Jets host the Minnesota Wild in an important Central Division match-up.
Hutchinson has won his last three starts, allowing just five goals on 95 shots combined. On the season, the 24-year-old is 9-2-2 with a .939 save percentage. His play has been a big reason the Jets are on pace to make the playoffs for the first time since the franchise moved to Winnipeg.
If the Jets can beat Minnesota in regulation, they’ll open an 11-point lead on the Wild, with Minnesota holding three games in hand.
