Note II: On Friday we learned from Jets bench boss that Nikolaj Ehlers was “probable” following Winnipeg’s optional practice out at the IcePlex. The speedy winger isn’t likely to skate today in St. Louis so we won’t likely know his official status until pre-game warm up skate. This morning the Jets are scheduled for their morning skate at 10:30 AM so be sure to check the pre-game report for the latest news and audio. Puck drop is at 6 pm, and as always, check back for our post-game recap with audio from both the Jets and Blues’ dressing rooms and coaches’ press conferences.

TSN: A familiar situation awaits Jets in must-win Game 6 in St. Louis. Facing elimination, the Jets will have to go into St. Louis and find a way to win one more time on the road. It won’t be an easy task, but the team can draw on their past experience of playing in win-or-go home games.
TSN: Jets can lean on last year’s playoff experience as series shifts back to St. Louis. Can the Jets use their experience from last year’s playoffs in their series against the Blues?
