The Winnipeg Jets vs. the New York Islanders battle it out on the ice at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in New York on Tuesday, April at 7:00 p.m. ET. Read on to see where fans can watch and listen to a live stream of the Thursday evening hockey game online and catch up-to-date feeds and coverage on highlight plays and scores.
The Jets head into Tuesday night's game as the no 1 team in the NHL Eastern Southeast Conference. Winnipeg snags the overall no 18 spot in the division, with an 18-17-2 record. According to ESPN sports columnist Scott Burnside, " Just when you want to believe in the Jets they go completely sideways, as they have gone 2-4-0 in their past six games. They've been outscored 17-2 during those four losses and have allowed Carolina and Washington to stay in the hunt for the Southeast Division title."
Meanwhile, the Islanders snag the no 3 spot in the NHL Eastern Atlantic Conference, and the no 19 overall spot with a 17-16-3 record (out of 30 teams). As Burnside points out, "The Isles have won three of four but, if they're serious about returning to the playoffs, this week will prove a good test as they face New Jersey, Winnipeg and Washington. We're guessing that winning at least two of three will be crucial to playoff hopes."
